I Want To Be A Princess....

Howdy all!  Happy Friday to ya - its been a great one here crafting and even had a lunch date with the hubby!

Emma at My Creative Time With Emma issued a challenge this week to do a project with a Princess. 
Well, I had one idea in mind but couldn't get it to work, so I put that aside and made a card instead.  My Fairy Princess card was created using the Once Upon a Princess cart, Die Cuts With A View glitter stack, Glass gems by Tulip and ribbon from Hobby Lobby. 

Have a super fab weekend!!

Tropical Heatwave!

Howdy friends!  It has been H-O-T here in the great State of Texas!  But we got some relief yesterday with some rain and a cool front!  I found a great place to get lots of good information and just to have fun.  It is called Fantabulous Cricut and they issued a challenge on Monday to do a project with a Tropical theme.  All you have to do is use your Cricut for a part of your project.

Here is what I came up with:  I was relaxing in my studio, thinking "hmmm, what could be more tropical than a yummy beverage in a pineapple!!"  I found some fab papers and got to Cricuting!

Clean and Simple

Howdy friends!  Its been awhile since I've posted anything, but now that the kiddos are back in the full swing of school I can spend a little more time creating! 

Today I made a card for the challenge over at Embellish Magazine.  The challenge is to use the colors Sea Foam, Kraft, Peach, and Cream.  I used some pieces I found in my stash to create my card - I love saving my pieces for projects like these!!  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Wednesday!!

Happy Anniversary!

Howdy friends!!  Today is my Anniversary! 15 years ago today, I was so blessed to marry my wonderful, dear hubby! 

As I was thinking about what kind of card to make, I searched through my Cricut Carts and came across the Nuts About U on the Create a Critter.  I KNEW immediately that is what I wanted to do - so off I went to my studio where I started grabbing scraps, bits and pieces.  Before I knew it - I had a card!

Now, here is where I LOVE multi-tasking projects!  While I was checking in on all the sites I follow, My Pink Stamper and her new design team had a DT post!  Great work as always!  At the end of her post, she invited us to make a critter/animal card to share.  Head over there and  check out all of the amazing work!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Thursday!!

It's A Girl!!!

Howdy friends!  I'm super excited today to share this card I made for a sweet friend of mine.  She had a baby girl 2 days ago (she already has 2 boys!), and I was so happy to get to make a girly-girl card for the much anticipated arrival!

As luck would have it - I really needed to make this card and once I saw this sketch, I knew what I would do!  This card was made based on the challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps.  Head on over to PKS and check out the challenge and all the wonderful examples and entries!  Thanks for coming by today - have a Blessed weekend!!

Sympathy Card

Howdy friends!  Today I worked on a simple card for the challenge at Cuttlebug Challenges.  The challenge is to make a sympathy card.  Now, this is not a type of card I typically think to make unless it is necessary, so this was pretty hard for me to do without making it too cutesy or froofy (is that a word??).   I used 2 cuts from the Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut Cart, a piece of ribbon, 3 clear embellies (cannot remember the name!!), and a stamp.  Very easy, but took me forever to design!

Make sure you stop by tomorrow and see what I made for a sweet friend who just had her 3rd baby!  A girl!
