Another fun challenge at FCCB!

Hello!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!  Here is the card I entered in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #20. The challenge was At the Zoo, and we are to create a card or project using a Cricut cut animal.  My husband has been very stressed at work lately and I wanted to make him a card to let him know how much I love him. So, when I saw this challenge I wanted to somehow incorporate both! I came up with that catchy little sentiment and went from there! After looking at it, I realize it could have been entered in last weeks PKS Sketch challenge... must have still been in my subconsious mind!! Anyway... I am really happy at how this turned out and hopefully it will put a smile on my honey's face!! Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  Happy Crafting!!

PKS Sketch Challenge #33, FCCB Challenge #19 & Cuttlebug Spot Christmas in July

Hello.. Happy Sunday to you!!  Here is a card I made for a few different challenges. I stayed up until 3 a.m. working on this.... don't know how it got to be so late (or early, depending on how you look at it), but I LOVE how it turned out.  The challenges that inspired my card are:  Peachy Keen Stamps "Sketch" Challenge #33,  Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog "Christmas In July" Challenge #19,  and also the Cuttlebug Spot "Christmas in July".  I will post the recipe later, since once again, I forget which cartridges I used being I did it on my Gypsy!  I know I used the Cuttlebug EFs  Swirls and Swiss Dot. :)  Please let me know what you think... and if you have time, please look at some of my other projects I have posted.  Have a fabulous day and Happy Crafting!!

Emma's Throwback Thursday #8 & Cricut Cardz Challenge #34

Here is the card I made for Emma's (My Creative Time) Throwback Thursday Challenge #8 and also for  Cricut Cardz Challenge #34.  Emma's challenge was to make a project with a birthday theme using the Celebrations cartridge or any other older cartridge. Since I do not own Celebrations, I had to use a different one. (I can't remember which one right now since I used my Gypsy, but I am sure it will come to me).  The challenge at Cricut Cardz was to make a card using cupcakes, cookies, cakes or candy using any cartridge or theme you wanted.  So.... here is what I came up with.  I have a lot of birthdays coming up so I am sure I will be using this card soon.  Thanks for looking, and if you have the time, please look at some of my other projects and let me know what you think.  Hope you have a crafty day!!

Another Made By Momo Tuesday Challenge

The challenge this week at Made By Momo is to make something "Super Girlie". What is more Girlie than pink and shopping?? My neice turned 18 and I thought this card fit her perfectly. :)  On the inside I made a little pocket to put a Visa gift card for here to go shopping.  Thanks for coming by and taking a look. Please take a look at some of my other projects and let me know what you think.   Have a fabulous day.

FCCB Challenge #18

Hello....   Here is another card I made for a challenge over at the FCCB. This challenge was to make a Yummy treat shaped card or project.  I have a lot of birthdays coming up, so these challenges are really helping me get some cards done, which is great, because unfortuantely I can be a bit of a procrastinator!  If you have time, please look at some of my others cards, and let me know what you think.  I am very new to this whole blogging thing and LOVE when someone leaves a comment... it really makes my day!! :)

Tuesday Challenge at Made By MoMo

Hello... Here is a card I put together for the Made By Momo challenge. The challenge was to make a project of what "Love" means to you, or just do a "Love" themed card or layout. I had so many ideas about what to make, but I was really pressed for time, so this is what I came up with.  Not a whole lot of bling, but sometimes I just like a simple card.  The sentiment reads "You make my heart flutter", which I think suits this card perfectly, since the heart image looks like it "fluttering" away.  Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.... let me know what you think.   Happy Crafting!!

Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge

Hello.... Here is a card I did for the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge.  We were supposed to use either the cat or dog image from the Going Places cartridge or any other cartridge. Since I don't own Going Places, I decided to use this adorable Poodle from Create a Critter.  I was inspired by a video I saw on A Place for  My Cards  I am excited about using my markers again!  I will be giving this card to a very special little girl who is turning 8 next Sunday.  I really like the way it turned out,  so hopefully she will enjoy it as well.  Please let me know what you think.... I love to get comments!  Thanks so much.  Happy Crafting.

My Creative Time Challenge

Well after a nightmare of trying to download my pictures, I can finally post this card I did for the My Creative Time Throwback Challenge. Emma asked us to use the New Arrival cartridge. My nephew has a 1st bday coming up and his room is Jungle theme, so I thought I could give this card to him. I wish I had more time to work on it, but time was not on my side tonight. (and neither was my darn computer.... UGH!) Thanks for looking.

MPS Color Challenge Card

Happy 4th everyone!! Today I whipped out this card for the My Pink Stamper Color Challenge. We were supposed to make a project of any sort using the colors brown, pink, orange and green. This is probably the fastest I have ever made a card but I wanted to be sure I submitted something because I would LOVE to win a set of Robyn's stamps. It was a quick one... but Ihope
you like it! :)
