Feeling Sick Milk It!

Hi Everyone,

Today's card was made for Cricut Cardz challenge but when I went to Mary's blog to get the link it says to make a get well card and use green, blue, black and white Only!   Well obviously I didn't read it correctly the first time because as you see my barn is red and I also used blush blossom. I will enter it anyway but I know I won't be in the running for the prize. I think this card turned out so cute! I had a bit of a time trying to figure out how to add the nose without the face on it so I could use my peachy keen face stamps. I finally stamped the face and then punched out a large oval and used my marker to add the nostrils. I also just colored over the green with black to make the spots. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by, happy creating everyone.

Paper: SU certainly celery,black, whisper white, blush blossom, bashful blue, riding hood red, DSP

Hi Everyone,

We have a new baby in the family and today was the day we finally got to see him. He is so adorable and super cute! the parents named him Dylon, different name but it suits him. I was looking for something to inspire me to make a scrapbook page. I had a few ideas picked out but I went with Cooking with the Cricut ideas. She inspires me to create. If you haven't checked out her blog, you should it is just fabulous. This is the layout I finally went with. I am so pleased with how it turned out. I used the cartridges create a critter, storybook and wall decor and more. I am entering my layout into Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week and the theme is at the zoo, so we need to have an animal on our project. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating and good luck to everyone that has entered the challenge.

Absolutely Fab-ulous!

Hi Everyone,

Made by Momo's Tuesday challenge this week is a "Girly Affair". I thought this would be a perfect card to enter. I used the Wall decor and more cartridge for the shoes and the frame from Storybook cartridge. I am sorry the card base looks black when it is brown like the ink I used on the tag. I used a silver gel pen and did some doodling around the base of the card. I find doodling or stitching just seems to finish the card off. It is so super cute! Thanks for looking.

Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for stopping by and visiting. I love hearing from you all so please leave me a comment.
Happy Creating,

Celebrate Birthday

Hi Everyone,
What a great day it was here today. The weather was cooler and it sure made me feel loads better. Every Thursday in our town during the summer we have different bands play and sing at our park. Tonight was an Elvis impersonator and he was so good.  I love to listen to Elvis's songs.

Well on to the card. It challenge time again at Emma's My Creative Time and I just love her challenges. It's always something fun. This week was to use the Celebrations cartridge but I don't have it so I used Doodlecharms. Peachy Keens challenge this week is a sketch so I have combined them both into this card. I cut the envelope on page 86 at 2" and the flower is on page 90 cut at 1". I used the Everyday paper dolls stamps and used the smallest stamps on the package. Lots To Do is to have stitching on your card real or faux. Good luck to everyone that has joined the challenges.

Isn't this so cute! I just love all the Disney characters. I needed a childs card so I used the Pooh and Friends cricut cartridge. It also fits three challenges I want to enter, Create4Fun sketch and The Corrosive Challenge Blog cartoon time. I cut Eeyore at 2 3/4" but next time I woud make it a larger cut. Some of the pieces were so tiny, but I did enjoy putting him together. The third is to use real or faux stitching for Lexis Creations.

Christmas Poinsetta

Emma at My Creative Time has her Thursday challenge up. This week we are to use the Wild Card cartridge and  to make a project with your favorite holiday. Well I am very sure you can guess by my card what my favorite holiday is. I used the flower on page 56 using DS and made them in different sizes. I ran them through the big shot using the petals a plenty embossing folder. I pinched the tips of the flower to make them turn up a bit and look more like a poinsetta.  Hope you enjoy it and good luck everyone  that is joining in. Challenges are very addictive.

I wanted to make a happy card tonight and this one makes me smile,  it is so super cute. I just love this look on her face. I used the Tahiti beach pack DSP from DCWV and the background is just adorable with the flower and squares on it. It looks like it is black  but it is brown. I really like the DCWV DSP so I find I have more of their paper stacks than any other brand. The cut is made from wall decor and more cartridge. It has so many cute designs for everyday occasions. Thanks for stopping by, Happy Creating,
