Very Happy Holiday

Today's card uses the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and the matching stamp set. I also used CTMH paper as well. I have to tell you that I absolutely love this cartridge and I also have the new Creative Memories 'Tis the Season and will be using that quite a bit as well and I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in SU in not getting into the Cricut cartridge scene!

December 1, begins my 25 days of Christmas where I will be posting everyday! Hope to see you all there!

Thinking of You

Today's card came out of having to make a sympathy card. The dp is SU and I used cobbler for he butterfly and blusing bride. The butterfly was but from an SU die and the mat for my sentiment was a die from PTI. I used my Viva Decor pen for the pearls that you see.
Good luck to everyone attempting to shop this weekend.

Birthday Girl

Today's card is very bright and cheerful. I am using the Birthday Girl stamp set from MFT. The dp is from SU and has these fun oranges and greens and yellows. I mostly paper pieced my image with a bit of light coloring with copics. The ribbon is from sale-a-bration from like 3 years ago. It's really a simple card but I love all of the fun colors! Thanks for looking today.

Rock On

Today's card is another one using some stamps and dies that I had gotten from Paper Trey Ink. I kind of just stamped the background images randomly in white and black on the Pacific Point cardstock. The guitars were stamped twice in black and once in red and I used the dies to cut them out. It's such a simple card but I really like how it came out.

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? My family is cheating this year and going out to eat at a restaurant. We are all just so tired and with Christmas fast approaching, everyone just wanted a year off. So no shopping, no cooking and no cleaning up, Yay! The main thing is my family will all be eating together and that's really what it's all about!

Here Comes Trouble

Todays card uses scraps from retired SU papers and some stamps and dies from PTI. I had these for awhile but haven't used them yet so it was kind of an experiment, you know when you get some new crafty supplies and you just see what they can do. Today, I am leaving for a girl's weekend to Vegas...I can't wait! Gambling, eating and shopping, no kids and no husbands!

Wicked Cute

I think my little Wicked card is just too cute! This is the card that I gave my sister for her birthday. The witch is from the Wrap it Up cartridge and is cut at 3.0 in black, orange and green and brown. I doodled a bit with my white gel pen. The dp is from last year's Martha Stewart paper pack and the sentiment is from Pink By Design and the ribbon is SU. There are so many fun cuts on carts that you wouldn't expect. Thanks for looking today!

Today's card is one that I forgot to post in the summer. I used my Groovy Times cartrdige to cut all the pieces you see here, along with the shadows for each. I used my white gel pen quite liberally and found these cool papers in my stash that had the colors I was looking for. Have a groovy day everyone.

Don't forget that I have blog candy here.

Hello Kitty Mini

Today, I am showing a mini that I made as a Christmas gift and the timing couldn't be perfect because I am able to use it for the Cricut Circle challenge too. I used lightweight cardstock and the Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge for the shape of album as well as the images.

The dp is retired SU from my stash. It's a few years old and I was so happy to use it! The stickers were found in the dollar spot at Target.

Some of the hello kitty images have been glittered and then can be removed from the plane so the recepient can journal or put a picture.

I made a charm using the HK cart. I cut the image about 3 times and attached them together to make them sturdy. The pink charm is a keychain that I also found in the Dollar spot. I used my Cropadile to punch holes in the side and used binder rings to hold everything together and then put some ribbon from my stash through the binder rings.

Don't forget that I have blog candy here.

Thanks U

Last week's winner is: Kimberly. Please email me with your address so that I can mail your prize to you. This week's prize is this TEa for Two stamp set from MFT. To win, just leave a comment on this post and I will post the winner next Friday.

Hi everyone, thanks for coming by. Today, I am sharing a card that I do like using similar elements from my card from the other day. I used the pennant punch one again but this time used SU dp and some stamps from the pennant stamp set. I also used some buttong and some white satin ribbon. I think it looks a little better in terms of layout and it's a lot neater! Sometimes its just good to just stamp and put things together and see what works and what doesn't!

Today, I am sharing a card that I made in the summer when I received my new stuff from SU. The pennant punch was used for the banner and I used PTI stamps for the lettering. The paper is Take the CAKE from SU and the ribbon is also from them. The sentiment is from the teeny tiny sentiment set from SU and I used SU punches there too. I didn't love this card which is why I waited until now to share it. I was just trying to see how some things worked, like the pennant punch. Anyway, thanks for sharing my "misses" as well as the good ones!
