Summertime...

Hi everyone. I can't believe that tomorrow is already the 4th of July... Where have the days gone?
Today I would like to share a couple of cards that I have created using my Cricut. I hope you like them! I also wanted to share a photo of the "end of year" gifts that I made for my co-workers.

This first card was created using the "Nifty Fifties" cartridge and the "Doodlecharm" one. There is a challenge over at Cricut Challenge to show a summertime theme and I think nothing says it better then food! lol! I used washi tape along the bottom and also added a few jewels. My sentiment was created with my computer.

This next card was done using scraps of paper that one of my co-workers gave me after she finished using them. Such pretty papers that I knew I had to use them! I created the circles by punching out 4 circles for each one of the embellishments; distressed and folded each circle in half then formed a new circle with them. My green cardstock is from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. A few buttons,brads,jewels and and an action wobble for the hippo and it was done.

The next two photos are what I did with store bought jams. I loved these little bottles (and they were on sale at $1 each!) and knew I could make them look cuter and more personalized. I cut tags and the fruit images out of my "Preserves" cartridge. I don't remember what cartridge I used for the top... I stamped "thank you" on one tag and wrote a message on the second one. I used hemp cord to tie them around the top. They were a hit!
