Silhouette Card

I saw Linda on Paper Boutique do a card with a silhouette and I remembered that the Heritage cartridge had a few.  This card had been started but I never finished it. So I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the ovals and the sentiment shapes.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Designers Choice.  I used my Irock for the bling.

Child's Birthday Card

I love this dinosaur from Create a Critter.  He was cut at 4" and I did 3 layers of different colors.  I ran him through the cuddlebug using the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder.  I inked around the card and over the embossing.  I used a pair of scissors that are different designs to cut around the sentiment. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Simple Sentiments clear stamps.

Hi Everyone,  I have learned how to make these great rosettes from The Paper Boutique blog.  The paper is from American Crafts and the card is at 5 X 7. The cupcake is an extra one I had around so I'm sorry to say I don't know what the size is.   The rosettes are very easy to make and Linda is an excellent instructor.  Check out her website at  You will not be disappointed.

Happy President's Day

Hi Everyone, This has been such a wonderful day off.  I spent a couple of hours with my 92 year old grandmother.  Then I came back home and made a couple of baby cards.  No one I know having a baby, but thought it was good to have a couple on hand in case someone might need one.  The paper I bought at T. J Maxx and it's from Anna Griffin.  Great paper and so cute. The stamp was from My Pink Stamper, Family & Friends Stamps. The twine was from Pink Cricut.  The cartridge was New Arrival.  Hope you like it.

New Cards

I haven't posted in a while I know, however, below are a few new ones.  I've been making cards, I just haven't been posting them.

Truck Birthday Card

Here is a card from "Just Because"  Cards Cartridge.  Another great cartridge and a must have for Cricut users.  Everything was cut at 4".  I had my father in mind when I made this card.  His birthday is in May.  Between now and then I'm sure I will make many more with him in mind.

Kick up Your Heels!!

This card was made from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  This is a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card.  The silly dog was cut at 3", however, I wish I had cut him out a little larger.  The stamp was from Scrappy Moms.

Cats Meow!!

Here is another card made from Nifty Fifties.  I cut this cat at...I beleive...3 3/4".  I didn't write it down.  Sorry.  Once again the stamp is from Scrappy Moms.

Teenage Birthday Card

I have the hardest time making masculine cards.  However, Edna, aka Pinky at Create with Expression, made this card and I thought it was so great for a teenage boy or a 20 something young man.  She made it for her 21 year old nephew.  This card is from my new Nifty Fifties cartridge.  I am loving this cartridge.  I bought it thinking I could make some nostalgic cards for my parents. However, anyone would love cards made from this cartridge.  The guitar and notes were cut at 4 1/4".  I used brads at the bottom and the sentiment is from Scrappy Moms.  A must have cartridge.  You won't regret it.

A Card from Our Puppies to their Cousin

Here is a card I made from our dogs to my parents dog, Josie and my sister-in-law's dog, Bailey. It was my first time flocking on a card. You probably can't see it (its the black part of the dog), but it turned out great. This card is from Create A Critter.  The dog was at 2 3/4", the dish was at 3/4", and the bones were at 1/2". The sentiment was from Scrappy Moms Love Notes.  I really like her clear stamps.
