Wooohooo!!! It's a free week for the DT at The Cutting Cafe!

Hello everyone! Can you tell by the title that I am ecstatic about this week being a free week? 
That means that the DT get's to chose whatever file they want for their project.
Choosing just one of The Cutting Cafe's files is nearly impossible for me...I love them all!
Ok, grab a beverage and sit back. This is going to be a post with lots of pictures =)

Going into this weeks assignment I had a goal in make cards for my Chemo Buddy and my Aunt who are both fighting breast cancer. I send at least one card a week to my Chemo Buddy. My sister and I take turns weekly sending to our Aunt. So, you can imagine how many cards I go through. I like to send homemade cards instead of store bought. 
This is where The Cutting Cafe is a life saver! 
Regina's files are super easy, cute and quick to put together. 

The first card I am sharing with you is the Sewing Machine Shaped Card.

Isn't this the cutest sewing machine ever?!? I absolutely LOVE it!
 I wish my sewing machine looked like this. The beautiful flowery paper was a gift from my crafty friend Diann Gaines. Thank you again Diann! 

For the next cutie I used the Paper Flower file and one of SherriAnn Baldy's 3D My Besties.

These are my favorite flowers. They are super easy to make. 

Regina has a video to show you how if you need help. 

The next 3 cards are made with the Hope Shaped Card and the Believe Shaped Card.
These cards are perfect for sending to my Chemo Buddy and Aunt, but you could really use these for anyone needing some love or a little pick me up.

Here's those beautiful Paper Flowers again. 

I embossed the next card with the Anna Griffin Rosa embossing folder.
 This is one of my favorite embossing folders. 

The cancer ribbon is from the Cricut Image set Pink Journey.

The butterflies, dragonfly and the dandelion are all cut with metal dies. 

This sentiment is from the Sweet n' Sassy Stamp Set God is bigger.
 This set is the greatest! So many great uplifting sentiments.

And last, but not least...A CD Holder. I put all the pictures I took while my niece was here on a disc. This is the perfect holder for them. It is super simple to make. 

The state of Alaska is from the Cricut Image set 50 States.

My daughter Kylah made some awesome Treat Cup Cards.
For this week's assignment. You can check out her blog HERE.

Phew! You made it to the end! Thank you for having a look at my projects. Make sure you stop by The Cutting Cafe on the 21st to see the Design Team's inspirational post. If you leave a comment you'll be entered in a chance to win 3 free files of your choice. See you again soon!
