I recently won the “Oregon” Close to My Heart stamp from the Color Dare Color My Heart challenge and thought I would put a card together. Since Oregon is so green with all it’s beautiful pine trees, I wanted to stamp it in green and add a pine tree.  A pine tree that did not say Christmas! I went to my Cricut and found this pine tree on Close to My Heart’s  Flower Market cartridge.  I wanted it to say “Hello from Oregon” but of course didn’t have a stamp for that, so I utilized Cricut’s write function. I am a newbie when it comes to the write function and experimented with the calligraphy pen.  I pulled some long time retired papers along with the bamboo B&T and zip strip from CTMH’s Oh Deer! paper packet. I wanted a paper with green, for the trees, and blue, for our rivers and lakes.  I am very pleased with the results.
