Jelly Bean Time!

Hi All!  Hope you are seeing some sunshine wherever you are located.  We are expecting temps in the low 70's this upcoming week.  My lawn is so wet (how wet is it heehee) I have to wear my wellies to even mow it.  So this dry and warm weather will really help.

This week I have created a card for a young man that loves to receive mail.  He doesn't know it will be heading his way.  I hope to surprise him.  Also it's the first time I have used felt on a card.  So let's take a look.

I used the Easter Bunny Kids  file from ScrappyDew's website.  Here is the link to the file.

This is just such a fun file and your imagination can come up with the perfect caption.  I decided that "Do I Smell Jelly Beans?" would suit.  Let me show you the card.

I hadn't experimented with cutting felt with my KNK Zing.  So I found my fabric blade and the KNK blade holder.  (i use roland blades and a click blade holder that i bought a long time ago)  I had saved the settings for the blade holder and got everything set up with the correct speed and force for felt.  Sticky mat ready and let's cut.  It was NOT a clean cut.  I had spent a half an hour, and said the heck with it and cut it out by hand.  I will try again, but I had a card to get done.  

The basket needed some embellishment so I used the lattice feature on the Make The Cut (MTC) program and then sized a oval in basic shapes to fit the handle.  I like the look of the basket. So this cute card is heading out to surprise a young man.  

Last week I had promised you a big announcement.  Well like all great things, more time is needed to have all the pieces in place.  So next Friday/Saturday I will have something very special to announce.  You will just have to check back.

Have a wonderful weekend, Bright blessings, Jana
