My first card for you is for National Salad Month --- I love salads and thoroughly enjoyed making this card!!

Recipe for National Salad Month:
Country Life Cricut Cartridge to cut the carrots and redbeets
Block Party Circuit Cartridge to cut the salad bowl
Scraps were used for the cuts
Inside sentiment is: “Anyway you toss it – Let’s do lunch”

My next card is for International Space Day. What draws a memory for me on this card is in 1961, with the first encounter with space. My dad had worked 3 jobs but took this day off. We had a black and white set and my dad set up the video camera to tape this monumental moment.

Recipe for International Space Day:
Groovy Times Cricut Cartridge cut at 4.5 inches
Scraps were used for the cuts
There is no sentiment as of yet for the inside but thinking of sending this to my brother

My final card is for World No Tobacco Day was a png that I found with a Google search and I absolutely love the sentiment – “kick butt”

Recipe for World No Tobacco Day:
Image found on the internet
Set on a piece of scrap paper
Jolee’s boutique Dimensional Skull and Crossbone
There is no inside sentiment as of yet for this card

The entire line-up as I know you don’t want to get lost is:
