Our lovely talented hostess this week is Susan. She asked us to design from Celebrate With Flourish and to use the cloud cut. My Gypsy has never allowed me to load CWF and when I tried again, I was told to update my Gypsy ... I did so and after 2 hours of the upload gauge still clocking in full upload mode and a message that said not to shut down the Gypsy, I finally decided I was going to wing it. I found that I could discontinue the upload on the computer but my Gypsy would not shut off so I resorted to the reset button and I was greatly relieved to find it worked and shut the G down. (Whew).... I went to the Expression to see what had worked and I was told to now update the Cricut from the Gypsy. Everything seems to be ok and my Gypsy could now recognize some of the newer carts I had purchased BUT the Celebrate with Flourish was not loaded, and when I tried the old method of just cutting direct from the cart in the Expression, the E was telling me "cart error". Sigh.... People ask me why I have an Expression and two Baby Bugs. This is why. I had a lovely backup which allowed me to cut the selected challenge.
I had some lovely double sided papers in the scrapbins so this card was created using those papers. I embossed the cloud and the sun and the sentiment. I popdotted 3 layers of the circle part of the sun....and since this was a bright sunny day, I added 6 jewels.
I used my cute little Brother sewing machine just used for paper sewing and zig zagged around the one paper mount. A bright bright sun indeed.... Recipe: Cricut: Celebrate With Flourish
(Sentiment, Sun and Cloud)
Embossing Folder: Swiss Dots
