Happy Easter !

Happy Easter to all of you out there in "BLOGLAND" . I hope you have a wonderful day with those near and dear to you. I wanted to share a card that I made for my daughter and her family...

This is a tri-fold card that I cut out using my Cricut and the Artiste cartridge. That cartridge was worth every dollar I spent on it (and it wasn't cheap!) It is so versatile and has cuts for everything. If you could only get one cartridge this would be the one to choose!
Here is the inside of the card...

I colored the image with my Copic markers. The image is from Doodle Pantry. The sentiment is from Cardz TV. I won an Easter set of sentiments last year for entering one of their challenges. My heart and other embellishments were cut with punches. The heart on the front is actually cut from an old greeting card that was given to me. I loved the shading of the paper and knew I could use it for something! LOL! I am such a "pack rat" or as my son in law says; "Mom, you have Packinson's disease"! Funny boy! I did clean up my scrap room yesterday though. Two bags of scraps made it to my recycling can. It is now a nice neat room (for the next few weeks anyhow!) Have a great Easter and don't forget to visit Doodle Pantry. The new images will be revealed on April 3rd!

Enjoy the Ride!

I wanted to share a card that I created using my Cricut and a stamp set from CTMH. My designer papers are from Recollections. The lined paper is once again from that $.49 Guest book that I found at the Salvation Army Thrift store. I used an SU punch to do the edge of the paper and then Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges. My bicycle was cut using the Cricut. A little baker's twine was added and my card was finished!

Sweet on Ewe !

Hi everyone and happy Friday! I thought the end of the work week would never come...Only three days next week and then I will be on my Spring Break. I can't wait for the week of "nothingness" !
I wanted to share a new card that I made using one of Jellypark Friends new images that are available to buy starting today. Here is my card...

I used the lamb and sentiment image from Claire's new release; "Ewe Are Sweet". My Cricut was used to cut the grass. I found an old tulip sticker that I had in my stash and some pretty flowers that I found at the Dollar Tree. I "faux" stitched around the outer edge of both the card base and the image base. I think it turned out looking sweet and simple; just like that sweet lamb! I colored the lamb using my Copic markers.
Go on over to Jellypark Friends and check out both of the new releases and also check out the new challenge. The challenge this time around is to use soft pastel colors for Spring. Hoping I see your beautiful creation for our challenge!

Egg Hunting Time!

I wanted to share this card that I made using my Cricut and a sweet new released image from Doodle Pantry.
I saw a card made by Mary at Cardz TV and knew I had to CASE it! I love how it turned out. My basket and eggs were cut using the Doodle Charms cartridge. I also used an embossing folder for the basket to give it a "weaved" effect. The paper for the basket is from a brown paper bag! My ribbon was made using the Artiste cartridge sold only through for Close to My Heart. The grass was also cut from the Artiste cartridge in two different sizes (one for the basket and one for the ground).

The sentiment is from the Bunny Wabbit set as is the bunny. What a sweet set this is! I hope you enjoy my card...

It's All About the Shamrocks!

I wanted to share three cards that I have made over the past week for St. Patrick's Day. I hope you like them!

The image for my cute little worm card is from Doodle Pantry and is one of their new releases. I love it and it comes with several different just right for whatever you want to say!

The above card was made for one of my Irish friends. The sentiment is her favorite and I used my Cricut to cut out the shamrocks. It went together very quickly! I found the sentiment with that gorgeous background on the internet. (Not sure from where...)

My final card was done for another friend's birthday (and yes; she is Irish too!). I used my Cricut for the hat and shamrocks. The sentiment was from the dollar spot at Michael's. My lined background paper is actually from a guest book that I found at Salvation army for $.49 ! I can see lots of uses for the papers and the book itself is hard-covered with 3 rings on the inside. I am thinking about using it to journal my crazy life!
Hope you all didn't drink too much green beer today! lol!

It's a Home Run!

I wanted to share a card I made for my nephew's birthday this coming weekend. I used the Baseball Birdie set from Doodle Pantry to create it! I also used the balloon from the birthday party set. A little black floss for the balloon which I popped up with pop dots. My scalloped circle is from a punch. The designer papers and the sentiment are from the same baseball birdie set. Here is my card:

Happy Doodle Day!

Welcome to the first day of March! (Did you say "rabbits" when you woke up? lol.) Today is the day that Doodle Pantry comes out with their new images! I am super excited and know that you will be too once you see all of the wonderful images that Laurie has created! I used the Easter Frog Pals set to make both of my creations.

My first creation is a card and the second is a yummy goodie for the Easter baskets! I used the color image to create my card and the lined image to make my jelly bean holder. I colored the lined image with my trusty Copic markers. Check them out...

I used the designer paper that comes with the Easter Fun Papers set(released last year) for my background on the card. I also used two of the sentiments from the set. I use my Spellbinder dies to cut out the image and the yellow paper behind it. I cut out a few of the colored eggs from the paper and used pop dots to place them on my card for a little extra embellishment. My flowers are actually from a fake flower that I took apart and then layered with a brad in the centers.

I used a plastic bag that I shaped into a cone shape and filled with jelly beans. The top of the bag was colored and then snipped to look like the top of a carrot. A pretty ribbon ties it together. My image was hand colored and then "popped" up with pop dots. Pretty easy creation!
Go and check out the new sets and also the challenge at Doodle Pantry.
