Challenge Me Monday #113

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  This holiday has very personal meaning for me.  For the last twelve years, the military has played a huge role in my life.  I am a veteran.  My sister and brother also served.  I also have the military to thank for my family, my husband and I met while serving. Although I am no longer in the military, my husband is making a career out of it and I continue to serve as an Army Wife.  To all the military families whose loved ones are home or far away, thank you for all of your sacrifices.  To all the civilians, hold your loved ones a little closer today.  Somewhere a military family member is wishing they could do just that.


This week, Fantabulous Cricut is THRILLED to be sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts. Wild Orchid Crafts is a family-run business that strives to provide the best products and service to their customers that they possibly can.  Some of our design team members have created their projects with supplies from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Check below to see the wonderful possibilities!

Wild Orchid Crafts started selling their mulberry paper roses back in 2005. Since then, they have  added many new flowers. All of their mulberry paper flowers are made using natural, renewable resources. The flowers are all handmade by experienced craftspeople using high quality materials and great care is taken to ensure that they are made to the highest standard. The production process does not involve using acid or other chemical additives. Wild Orchid Crafts is very proud of the quality and manner in which their flowers are produced, and the fact that they are made using natural, renewable resources.

A few members of our wonderful design team received some of these GORGEOUS mulberry flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and used them to make their Memorial Day projects. Just see how easy it is to combine Wild Orchid Crafts' flowers with your Cricut cuts!
