Thank You Card For My Bowling Partner

Last Thursday was the last week of our Summer bowling league.  This was a different group than the one I bowled with during the Fall/Winter League.  My friend Joan & I bowled together in these leagues.  We had the secretary/treasurer of the league (her name is Etta) bowl with us during the Summer.  She is a very good bowler and why she agreed to bowl with us I can't explain.  To say that Joan & I aren't accomplished bowlers is an understatement.  We try hard but we haven't established consistency yet.  Some weeks we did outstanding, then the next week would be a disaster.  Thank goodness for handicaps.  Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to make Etta a thank you card.  This is it.  I hope she liked it.  She didn't get to open it while I was there.

Card Recipe:
A2 Card Base
Background Paper - DCWV Textures & Finishes Paper Stack
Bowling Pins, Ball, & Label are cut files from the Silhouette Cameo Online Store.  I cut these exactly the size they are in the cut file.
Thank You So Much  is from the Cricut Stamping Cartridge.
Color Box Chalk Ink - ink around edges of the label.

This was an easy card to make.  The most time consuming thing about it was gluing the shapes together but that was fun.  I wish Cricut Craft Room was as stress free to use as the Silhouette Studio software is.  Every time I use CCR & cut a file, the program crashes and I have to shut down CCR, turn my Expression 2 off,  then back on again and start CCR all over again.  If anyone knows of a solution to this problem, please let me know because I have a ton of cartridges I would like to use.  Totally frustrating.  Oh well, enough grumbling.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Hope to see you again soon.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy

  1. Very cute card, Peggy.
    I can't help with a solution. Right now CCR, my Gypsy and E2 all ignore each other.


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
