Flowers for Grandma

Welcome to Crazy About Cricut Thankful Thursday!! The challenge this week was to make a project for Mother's Day, so when I found this cute cutting file at Cooking with Cricut, I knew what I was going to do. Every day they are giving away a free cutting file or digistamp, so be sure and get over there and grab your freebies! I cut the basket out of Bazzill embossed cardstock and then I tied a pretty yellow ribbon to the handle.

I cut out these awesome flowers and then spritzed them with glimmer mist, love that stuff! I added a little heart brad to the center of the smaller flowers just to change it up a bit. The dimensionals really make the flowers pop off the page!

The prize this month will be from our newest sponsor Post-it! Here's the awesome prize they provided:

Don't forget to head over to Crazy About Cricut and check out all the wonderful Design Team projects and enter your family's project! Have a great day!

Papercraft Star - use your own sketch
