Would you ever guess Wednesday with my Cricut Craftroom

The challenge this Wednesday was to use a gel pen holder and gel pens on our design.
I love using the cricut gel pens and holder in my E2 to write out little sayings for both the inside and outside of the card. On this card I used Alphalious with the bold feature to do the lettering. I did them at .25 and used the feature to have it go over them twice. Since you are dealing with a pen it is always a good idea to go over it more than once.
The stars are a cut from Rock Princess and I did that cut at 1.75.
Twinkle Twinkle little star is a bed time ritual for my Grand daughters. They sing it to the stars before they go to bed. My oldest Grand daughter that is almost 4 sang it to me on the phone because she said the sun was tired so the stars came out and it was night night time. It was so sweet and it touched a place in my heart. Every time I see the stars it will remind me of that sweet little girl singing to me on the phone. So here is a picture of my super simple project but it has special meaning to me.


Now be sure to go back to My Cricut Craft Room to see all of the great projects from my awesome design team sisters!!!
