Hi Everyone! Monday marks a new day for a Design Team Challenge over at Paper Therapy.
I always try to play along and here is my take on the sketch.
Can you believe I didn't even use my Cricut! Shocking I know!! ;)



I used this Cute bunny stamp I bought awhile ago at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section. I colored it with colored pencils and gamsol. I used Stampin up Crumb Cake, Pink Piroutte, Old Old, Very Vanilla and whisper white cardstick. The Designer paper is K & Company Brenda Walton Neopolitan embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and lightly sanded. The Butterlies are a Stampin Up embosslit and the sentiment is Stampin Up Well Scripted. The button is Chocolate Chip corduroy button on pink twine and regular twine.
I hope you enjoyed my card!
Have a Great Day!!

I just love their Challenges and can you believe I won last week's Monochromatic Challenge?! YAY! I was super excited!! I guess I need to try those out more often!



I had alot of fun with this card and I am very pleased how it turned out!
Have a Great day!
Hi Everyone! I was asked to be a Guest Designer for the Tacky Tuesday Challenges over on Facebook. I was so honored!! This is my first Guest DT anything :)
This Month's Tacky Tuesday Challenge is to use the bunny cut from page 27 on Birthday Bash.
I don't have this cartridge so I just used another bunny cut.
Here is my Card.

I decided to use the bunny from Simply Charmed cut at 3 1/2 and used my gypsy to hide his little facial cuts and used Peachy Keen Paper Doll faces. The card is a cut from A Child's Year cut at 5 1/2 with the layer with Paper studio paper. The Designer paper is Hobby Lobby paper. I used 5 brads from My Mind's Eye that I received as a challenge prize ;) The Easter Sentiment is a Stampabilities stamp and ribbon FX from Hobby Lobby. I used SU! Lavendar Lace and a White Signo Gel pen for doodling My little bunny is also on a Action Wobble! So FUN!
I hope you participate in this month's Tacky Tuesday Challenge! They are just so much fun!
Thanks for looking! Now head on over to Facebook and "Like" Tacky Tuesday Challenges!
I just adore all the home decor items in the first issue of the Cricut Magazine. So I had to try my hand at it and I decided to make this from page 76.
Here is what I made.


I'm giving this to my Secret Sister at Church today ;) She has never even met me so its alot of fun.
I used Wall Decor & More for the plant and the words. The plant is cut 5 1/2 in Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The words cut at 3 3/4 int he same. I hand stitched the brown border and used my sew easy. The layer is punch with a scalloped Stampin Up border punch and decorated with Stampin Up brads. I bought this frame at Walmart for $2. I really like how it came out and I hope she does too.
Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday!
This week's Challenge over at Paper Therapy was to make a monochromatic card, with a color of your choice. I always shy away from these challenges because I never know what to make or what colors to use. On the other hand, I promised myself I would be participating in as many challenges as possible. So here is my take on this week's Challenge.

I really enjoyed how this one came out so I decided to make another one similar to it for my Mother's Birthday this coming Thursday. Her favorite color is green and that seems fitting since she is a St. Patty's day baby!

I used Stampin' Up pretty in pink, pink pirouette, very vanilla and old olive. Stampin Up buttlerfly embossilt, medium jewelry tag punch, teeny tiny wishes stamp set, Tiny Tags stamp set and Elements of Style Stamp set. Old olive satin ribbon and Offray pink ribbon. embroidery floss and pearls from my stash.
Thanks for looking!
This week my friend, Stacey and I picked Lacy Labels as our cartridge toss up.
I really enjoyed using this cartridge and I can't wait to make more projects with it!
This card I did three different color schemes of but it is the same card.




I welded my "label" together to make a card shape on my gypsy at 4 1/4 and cut all my layers at 4 1/4.
I embossed the bottom layer with my cuttlebug swiss dots folder on all three cards. I then embellished with buttons, twine, flowers and a few brads. The colors I used are SU! crumb cake, old olive, chocolate chip, pink pirouette, marina mist, so saffron and the retired Sweet Pea DSP from SU! I did the faux stitching around the edges with chocolate chip marker and the pretty in pink marker.

I really love how these three cards turned out!
Thanks for looking!

Hi Everyone!
It's Tuesday already and you know what that means, another Cartridge Toss-up!
This week my wonderful friend Stacey, over at Stacey's Creative Corner, and I picked the cricut lite cartridge Lacy Labels. I got this cartridge for Christmas along with my Cricut and I have never once used it until now. I must say I was pleasantly surprised! I loved it!
Here is my First project for this week.
 A Birthday Card for my Sister-in-law.

The colors are Navy Blue, Very Vanilla and Bashful blue but the pictures always show up yellow.

I welded my card shape on my gypsy at 4 1/4, I cut all the layers at 4 1/4.
The "Happy Birthday" is from Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes Cartridge cut at 2 1/2.
I added some sponging with silver ink then some gems from my stash.

Thanks for Looking and Have a Great Tuesday!
