Purse Invitation

I created this purse for an invitation to a Sweet 16 birthday party.  The purse was my take on a Paper Bag Purse.  I removed the paper bag, added a few more inches of paper and score lines:)  Added the invite and pick up instructions inside.  I used Sweethearts cart for the gift box and Celebrations cart for "it's a party".  The invitation measures 5.5 x 4.5.  Thanks for stopping by!

Momo's Girly Challenge

I was asked to create a birthday card.  So here is what I created.  If you do not know by now, I love love the Forever Young cartridge!  I heat embossed the paper to create this design, I was having trouble finding paper to match my vision:)  Made by Momo showed how to do this on one of her videos and I knew I would try it one day, Thanks Momo:)  I slowly purchased everything, and 3 months later, it worked.  I really love the card!!!!!  The card is 6x6.  The stamp is from the Inkadinkado, Circle and Dots set.  The lady is cut @ 5".  Cuttlebug Divine Swirl embossing folder, on the dress. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July Challenge #3

Here is my entry for Challenge #3 over at Cardz TV with Mary.  We had to make a Christmas card using ribbon, lace and/ or buttons.  For my card I used ribbon.  My card is standard A2, the reindeer is cut @ 3" from Create-a-Critter.  I have been wanting to use him, I think he is so cute.  The Merry Christmas is heat embossed w/white embossing powder.  I used Christmas stickles for the nose and scarf.  I embossed the green paper with Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  Had fun, thanks for stopping by!

Blog Awards

WOW!  What a nice surprise upon returning home from vacation.  My husband and I went to the lake for some rest and relaxation and it was great, but I did miss my cricut:)  I received two blog awards from Nicole. I feel very honored because I have only had my blog for about a month.  I was very nervous about doing the blog, this gives me a little more confidence to continue doing what I enjoy and sharing with others.  Just as so many others have inspired me, I too hope I can inspire someone.  I made this cards for Nicole, to just say: "THANKS".  I love her blog and she makes such cute things. Her card was my first attempt at heat embossing.  I heat embossed the letters onto the flowers it was fun!  Thanks again:)

Snow Business

I created this card for the CardzTV "Christmas in July" challenge.  The only requirement was to use a snowman.  I used the snowman border from Doodlecharms cut @ 3".  The card is 4" x 8".   I stickled the noses, Orange Peel and the snow edges, Icicles.  The faces are Peachy Keen Stamps and chalk for the cheeks.  I used a ruler edge to make the shape of the snow.  The sentiment is computer generated, it says, "There's no business, like "SNOW" business.

Ooh La La

This is my entry for the Throwback Thursday challenge.  Emma wanted you to use an animal from Zooballoo.  Since, I did not have Zooballoo, I used my Animal Kingdom cart.  I wanted to do something a little different, so hence my sassy horse.  The horse is cut @ 3.5".  The sentiment is computer generated.  Bling for the necklace.  Silver and white gel pens for the trim.  The pink paper is from DCWV Sweet Stack.  Thanks:)

A BIG Thank You

I am trying to make cards in advance so I am not always rushing to make needed cards.  So I started with Thank You cards.  Here is one I did with Create-a critter.  The Hippo and all layers are cut @ 3".  The cards is A2.  Hope you enjoy!

This is my take on Made by Momo, Love challenge!  The card is A2, the seahorses represent my husband and I.  I am so blessed to have him in my life, he is my best friend:)  I used Create-a-Critter cart.  The seahorses are cut @ 3.5", I used the flipped feature (on the Cricut) for the blue so they could face each other.   The heart is cut @ 1" from page 45.  The sentiment is from a Inkadinkado set called, Love and Friendship, from Joann's.  I used Xmas red, cotton candy and frosted lace stickles.  I hope you enjoy it, thanks for stopping by!

Some Rain Must Fall

It is so rainy here today, so I decided to make my version of a card I saw over at  I loved it the moment I saw it and told her I would probably scraplift it.  I used my new cartridge, Paisley,  for the umbrella cut @ 3.5", rainboots 2" and EDPD for raindrops and puddles cut @ 3" and 2.5".  Tiny umbrella brad from Brad Outlet.  Black and Baby Blue stickles:)  The saying is computer generated.  I hope you enjoy it!
