Here a couple of cards I made for a challenge. One will be for my daughter and the other for my Mom.
I used the Freshly Picked cart the flower pots on pages 32 and 33 were easy to make. I added a little stickles to the centers for accent and popdoted the flower post off the page.
The MOM on the second card is from Storybook. The other sentiment is from SU with a Spellbinder flower as a background and a digital circle to top it off.  Now that I see the MOM on this paper I wish I had put some chalk around the edges, it would have made it stound out a little better.

Thanks for stopping by, happy Easter, and happy crafting.

A simple Easter card for a challenge and to send to my Aunt.
I used a digital design from and colored it using my Stamp N Up and Prismacolor markers. I thought the little girl with the chick was super cute.  The sentiment is from the Celebrate with Flourish, and the paper ribbon is from Creative Memories.  The paper is just pieces from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoyed my card.

Here is a look at my first popup card using my new file from MTC.  I think I will add something to the top of the card, but I am not sure what.  This will make a great card for graduation or even a birthday.
 I used Create a Critter for both the Zebra, found on page 47
And the phrase, found on page 29.
Hope you have a great Saturday, and thanks for stopping by. If you would like to have this file, just let me know and I will be happy to share.

This is the card I made for my 8 year old grandson to give his best friend. I used the Doodlecharms cart for all the die cuts. The card is a side step card cut at 6X9 with a side length of 2 inches. I think it turned out wonderful and my grandson will be pleased. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a blessed day.

This is the card I made for the Fantabulous Cricut Spring Fling contest. The chick and egg came from the Celebrate with flourish cart and the font came from Gypsy font. The border is from a MS punch and I braded it with ribbon from my stash.  The chick and egg were cut at 3 inches and the font was cut a 1.16 inches and welded together. Hope you like that card, I had fun making it. Thanks for stopping by.

Today is my wonderful son's birthday. I am headed to his office with a cake and card. My husband and I have done this every year since he was in high school. He is turning 34 today, wow where did the time go.  I still remember him as the baby who stood up in his crib to open the door to his room, after I put him to bed at night.  Here is the card I made for my Super Son.  Sorry the photo is too dark, I guess the flash wasn't working.  Have a great day.

Wow my first blog post. I didn't think I would ever get to this.  I want to have a place where I can let others view my work and get inspired to do some of their own projects. I use a Cricut Expression and Sweetheart cartridge.  Hope this valentine I made for my husband gives you an idea for your sweetheart.
