If you came from Lisa then you are in the right place!

I'm never been to the wilderness or camping in the woods for that matter. I've always wanted to try it but I always had the fear that bears or coyotes would attack. LOL But, I do have to face my fears sometime. With that said, I wanted to try something new that describes the wilderness in a whole different way. I wanted to create something using a canvas with Cricut Images. In this canvas, I displayed a setting with what I think happens in the wilderness. Often people would fish by the lake, as wood creatures come out to say "Hello" in their own unique way. For this, I decided to place a rabbit fishing by the lake in the woods as the rabbit and deer glance at him. I really enjoyed creating something using a canvas. This is perfect to display on your walls at home. I plan on purchasing more canvases and creating more projects that can even be given as gifts. Hope everyone likes it.
