Snack Time!

Hello everyone! I just finished this to enter into the My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #21, Gift bags and Boxes. I know, I'm a little slow to start

since we've had two weeks,but I just couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to do. Any way, I decided to do something for Back To School. All the cuts were made from Campin' Critters, except for the pocket that I added to the back of the back pack. I did a lil' inkin' and stitchin' with my gell pen, and sanded the body of the back pack to make it look more like denim. This was fun to make and I wanted to put a little memo book in also, but it wouldn't fit! Head on over to My Craft Spot and join in on the blog hop!

Flower Pot Birthday

Good Mourning! My Mother loves to garden, but physically can no longer do as much as she used to, so I made this Birthday card for her to remind her of how beautiful her flowers will always be in my mind! I started with the flower pot and embossed it with the cuttlebug. The large flowers were cut from Walk in My Garden and Home Decor and the color combo are her favorite colors. The leaves were done with a MS punch and the small vine flower was cut from Home Accents. I added some Memory Tread, a sheer ribbon, and the sentiment at the bottom. The inside sentiment was computer generated. I am entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #74. You can check out their blog by clicking on the button on the right hand side of my blog. I hope everyone has as beautiful a day as I am having here in the south, and thanks for looking!

Milk and cookies

Hi everyone! Over at the Paper Cutz challenge blog the challenge for this week is Down on the Farm, so I thought I would enter this card that I did and never shared. This was the very first card I did with my Gypsy that my wonderful Husband gave me for Christmas! I used: From My Kitchen-cow milk jug and cookie plate, Just Because Cards-chick, Wild Card-outside sentiment( welded with the Gypsy), and Everday Paper Dolls-grass. I embossed the background with the Divine Swirls folder, added a sunflower sticker from my stash with a button for the center, and another button for the sun after I stamped the rays and doodled them with my gell pen. The inside sentiment was done with my Design Runner. Lots of inkin' and poppin'! Hope you like, and thanks for looking!

Birthday Wishes

Here we go again! I had so much fun making the last border punched card, I decided to do another one! This time I placed the borders right side up and made a girlie card with all the bright pinks and turquiose colors, added a lime green vintage seam binding bow with a button on top, and some glittered ric rak on the top. The sentiment was stamped , and I used an EK sucess punch this time. I will enter this one in the Birthday Sundaes challenge #21, Anything goes birthday card.

Hi Ya'll! I made this card for the My Craft Spot Challenge #20, which was to use "hot , bright colors". Well, I hope you've got your sunglasses on!! I was searching for papers and found this striped piece of paper by daisyd's, and decided to use some of the colors for my scalloped borders punched with a new M.S. punch I found at Michaels. The card was originally supposed to have the scallops facing down. I accidentally knocked the thing off the table , and it landed upside down. When I picked it up, light bulbs went off in my head and I saw pockets, which changed the whole card idea in a flash! Soooo, to make a long story short,(I know I'm rambling on), I punched out some scalloped circles and stamped them to put in the pockets,stamped the sentiments, added a felt flower and a ribbon, and called it done!You can check out My Craft Spot by clicking on the button on the right.

Summer Blessings

Hello everyone! I trust that everyone has survived the heat wave,LOL? It has actually cooled down here for awhile. Fantabulous Cricut's challenge #72 this week is to "Get Buggy", so I started thinking about summer and bugs and decided to do the fireflys from the Stretch Your Imagination cart but I didn't like the jar. So guess what? The jar was cut from Kates ABC's, and then I decided it needed something else so I cut the snail from Walk in My Garden. Didn't like the lid on the jar so I cut it off and stamped one to put in it's place. Do you ever get to where you just CAN'T MAKE UP YOUR MIND! Any way the outside sentiment was done on my Design Runner and the grass was cut with a M.S. punch. The inside sentiment was computer generated. Hope you like! It just reminds me of my childhood days, and what we did to keep ourselves occupied on hot summer nights! Thanks for looking!
This card will be entered in the Fantabulous Cricut challenge #72( use the button on the right hand side of my blog).

Curtis' Birthday

Hi everyone! I made this Easel card for my Son-In-Law for his birthday which was this past Tuesday. My Daughter didn't tell me until Sunday about the birthday, and I told her I wouldn't have time to make a card. Anyway, he has been working late every night, which gave me time to come up with something to give him this weekend. The cow( which looks more like a bull to me) was cut from Birthday Bash, and the cupcake was cut from Doodlecharms. I embossed the mat with the cuttlebug folder, Birthday. The sentiment also came from B.B. I did some inking on the sentiment and the top of the cupcake,chalked some of the words on the mat to make them stand out more, and added some unraveled jute to the top of the cows head.Since this was for a man, I didn't add as much bling. I am entering this in the Cakes and Cupcakes Blog Hop and in the Challenge #16. Thanks for taking a peek!

Hello everyone! This card was made for a challenge on the Create Blog which was to make a card using gathered ribbon flowers. I added some stick pins behind the flowers, and some "leaves" using a Martha Stewart punch. I'm not sure where the die cut came from, ( if it was a "nesty" or a Cricut cut ), because I got it from Joy several months ago. I added some beaded ribbon, and a butterfly bling, did a little inking and stamped the sentiment. The inside sentiment was computer generated. Thanks for looking!
