Hannah Montana Cards

Here are more cards that I made just in case for my kids classmates.  Almost everyone loves Hannah Montana so I made some HM cards.  I love the music notes that come along with the cart and I also love my music Cuttlebug folder so I embossed the backgrounds of these cards.  Hope you enjoy and have a blessed day.

Cupcake Cards

I am going to make some cards up to keep because my children always have a friend who has a birthday.  So I made these cards as spares.  I hope you like them.

Happy Birthday Alicia.

My daughter Alicia turned 7 years old yesterday.  We went to Ihop to celebrate her birthday with pancakes.  The servers even came out to sing happy birthday to her.  She looked like a little deer in headlights.  She was more embarrased than happy.  Oh well.  I made some little treat bags for her class at school and she was so excited.  I think they came out pretty.  I used the Storybook marquis, Doodletype Font, and little butterflies from the Martha Stewart 3 butterfly punch.  I used the smaller butterflies as the dots for the "i"s in Alicia.  Well I hope you enjoy them.  She liked them and the attention they got.  The teacher loved that it wasn't cupcakes.  I tossed in a few M & Ms to provide a little sweetness to Chex Mix.  Sorry about the glare in the picture.  The cupcake paper and Alicia name paper has a sheen and it made it hard to photograph it well.  It is the Core'dinations cardstock and it is beautiful.  The white paper was American Craft which has a great texture and cuts well with the Cricut machine.

Cute New Carts

I saw a message on the Cricut.com message board that there are three new carts supposedly coming out in December.  They are the cutiest.  I will definitely be getting these.  I wasn't too excited about the Christmas ones but these are wonderful.

Here is the link to the website where I saw the images.


Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone.

As I said before, I am focusing more on scrapbook pages now.  I have made some cards but not as frequently as before.  I am still looking for a program that blurs faces.  If you know of a good one, that also adds text to a photo (ex. my name) I'd appreciate the advice.  Here is a Christmas card.  I made this one with Papertreyink Christmas Stamps.  They are wonderful and crisp.  A great image every time.  I used Cricut Doodle Charms, I think, for the die cut.  Thanks for looking and have a blessed day.

Blog Awards

Hello Everyone.

I'd just like to thank Shelley from shelleyscards.blogspot.com for her blog awards.  I am not the artist that I see many of my favorite card makers are but I can say that my cards come from my heart and the talent God has given me.  I hope you all are having a beautiful, blessed, and glorious day wherever you may be.

New Card

Hello Everyone.

I'm sorry that I've been out of commission for a few days.  I haven't been sick or anything.  Just reassessing my purpose for crafting.  I have focused on making scrapbook pages over the past few days.  I love seeing my pictures on beautiful pages and remembering the memories from the event. And like most of you, I'm pretty backed up in that area.  I am considering posting some but I want to protect the identity of the children in the photos so I am looking for a way to blur faces while not the rest of the photo.  If you have any suggestions I would welcome them.  So without further delay, here is a card for today.

Blessings to you.

I am posting a Gypsy Wanderings card today.  I intend it for my male coworker who just received a promotion.  I am hesitant though.  I feel that many people don't necessarily appreciate home made things.  Some times I feel people would rather get something store bought from the dollar store rather than something hand made especially if they aren't particularly nostalgic.  Well I know you all will enjoy the card and appreciate it.  Thanks for your visit.

I used paper from a new DCWV Rustic pack I got at JoAnns.  It is so beautiful.  I also like this owl.  I put it on because I hope my colleague enjoys and uses wisdom in his new position.

A Happy Belated Birthday

Hello Everyone.

I have been procrastinating a little this weekend.  I did manage to finish four scrapbook pages of my daughter's 8th birthday but I only completed one card.  I wanted to make it special because it is for a friend who I hadn't talked to in many years until this year on Facebook.  So I hope you enjoy it.  I am going to start attempting to do cards from sketches this week.  I have developed a pretty static style and I am looking to shake things up a little.  I hope you enjoy this birthday card.  Have a blessed day.
