Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Acorn Swing Card

Hello, friends!

Order Artfully Sent by the end of the month and you could win over $1900 in free stamps, card stock, patterned paper, acrylic blocks, and ink! 

I am giving away all of my hostess rewards for the month of September to one lucky customer. To be entered into the drawing, all you have to do is order the Artfully Sent cartridge between now and the end of September. I will draw a winner October 1st! The rewards amount is over $1900 today, but it could be lots more. You could get all of the crafting supplies you need this year for free!


Today, I have a card I made for the Bitten By the Bug weekly challenge using both the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent and Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridges

This week's challenge called for either an acorn or a squirrel. I remembered that there was a simple, but cute acorn on Art Philosophy. I was going for a simple, but elegant look for this one. 

The card base and the wreath are from Artfully Sent. I decided not to add a sentiment on the outside and put it on the inside instead. I used a cute stamp set you can get for only $6 if you place an order of $150 or more. You MUST tell me that you want to do this and not just place the order online. You will not get your hostess rewards if you do this. Simply send me an email and I can get things rolling for you! *note you do not need to have multiple people on your order to receive hostess rewards.
