Wish You Were Here! ~ Challenge With My Mom

My Mom And I used to live right down the street from each other and we would craft together all the time but 2 years ago our family moved an hour and a half away and as a result my Mom and I hardly ever get to craft together. So last week as I was sitting at my Cricut aka "Sugar" (That's her name because she gives me a high just like sugar.) making a card for one of the challenges I decided I wanted to do a challenge once a week with my Mom. We used to pick the cartridge (Going Places) and the page (93) and this is my finished card. I don't have the "Going Places cartridge" so I designed the "Wish You Were Here" on my gypsy with my "Sesame Street Font Cartridge" to make it as close as I could to the one in "Going Places".
I made the card in the shape of the state of Utah because that is where I live. I am sending this card to my older Brother that lives in Washington. He has been trying to move down here to be closer to family, but has been having a hard time getting everything together to move down so I made this card as a reminder of how much we miss him. 2 hours after I made the card I found out that everything is settled and that he will be moving down on Feb 3rd. Go figure huh! :)
I hope you enjoy the card and have a great day. :)
