Holographic Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends, I hope you had a great weekend so far. I went to the doctor today and I'm happy to report that doc took my brace off and I don't have to wear it anymore! Nothing shifted or got worse, the fracture is healing! I can start putting a little bit of weight on my leg with the use of the walker, but if it starts hurting, then I must stop. He was happy with my range of motion, so no physical therapy either! I go get new x-rays and see doc in three weeks. After that I'm thinking I should be good to go, but will just need to be careful not to refracture it. Blessed!!!!

I used my Cricut Joy to make a premade card design again for a birthday card-it was a while back, but never posted this card. I love the design and I love the silver holographic paper I used for the background. Look at the rainbow of colors! So fun, but so simple and easy to make. Took only minutes to cut out and put together. One can always add extra stamping or whatever on the outside or inside to dress it up more. I kept it plain on the outside as I thought the design was enough with the holographic paper on the outside. These pre-designed cards are fun to make, but also make it easy for when you need a fast card for an event or a birthday that you realized a little bit late! I know my card base looks half white in the photo, but it was a soft pastel pink, the light must have washed it out. 

Well that's it, just a simple card from me, but then again all things I do are simple. I thank you, as always, for stopping by and visiting with me a spell. I know your lives are busy as well, so that makes your visit even more special. If I haven't been by to see you, I will be shortly. 

Crafty hugs,

You sure do amazing things with your Cricut! This really is a great design using that paper and who doesn’t love a fast and easy card! It’s fun to see what you are working on and good news about the knee. I’ve got a way to go yet.

I love how you caught the pretty holographic colours in your photo, Brenda and I think you were right to leave it as is because it is just right. I really like how the corners of the shiny card peep through to frame it. I'm so glad to hear that you are free of the brace and that everything is healing well.
Take care.
