I love making cards and this sweet pink trellis cards was a fun card to make for a dear friend of mine.


By now you all know I’m a big fan of our ‘colour of the year’ Bashful – this beautiful shade of soft pink cardstock. Combining it with all Close To My Heart products AND my fav flower the daisy. I love the simplicity of these flowers – simply cut on the Cricut. If you’d like to know how to get your own Cricut email me for more detail

Today is a beautiful day to create something special for a friend.
