Circle Blog Weekly Challenge & Circle Weekend Challenge Entry

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday!  This morning I went on  a field trip to the pumpkin patch with my youngest daughter and scrambled trying to get this done! The weekly challenge at the Circle blog was THINK PINK and we were to use Pink, Ruffles, Scallops, Flourishes, Glitter and Jewels ( incorporate any 3 on your project).  I just love this Nursery Tails cartridge and decided my neighbor needed one more gift for her new baby's room. I thought this little wall hanging would go very nicely with the other projects I made for her.  Hmmmmm, I hope she likes pink because that has been the main focus of all my projects!!!   Well, gotta get going... thanks for stopping by.  I would love if you would leave a comment... I so enjoy reading them!!  Have a Crafty Day!!

Scrapmaster's Paradise Challenge #69 and Circle Challenge

Hello again... This card was created for the challenges at Scrapmaster's Paradise and the Cricut Circle. This was a color combo challenge in which we were required to use  SU Black, Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie (or any similar color).  I love this color combination. I was so excited when I found some pattern paper for the girls dress that coordinated with these colors. I really like how it turned out... it will make a good birthday card for one of my friends! Thanks for looking.. hope you like what you see!!  Have a Crafty Day!

Super simple card made for Weekend Circle Challenge

Hello... Here is a  super simple card I made for the Weekend Circle Challenge.  I was obviously lacking time when making this one, but at least I completed it.  It was supposed to be a Circle inspired card. I used Winter Frolic for the Happy Holidays, cut at 1.82" (on G), the paper is from the new Cloud 9 Seasonal stack, used my NEW i-rock (and I love it) for the bling and some ribbon from my stash. Like I said... super simple, but I guess it looks alright.  Thanks for stopping by... Have a Crafty day!!

Imagine-Nation Monday Challenge with Emma

Hello... Happy Monday!! Emma over at My Creative Time has teamed up with Sarah from the Pink Cricut to host Imagine-Nation Monday. I am so looking forward to seeing the fabulous projects these two will be sharing with us. They will be doing challenges and having prized as well!  Woo-Hoo!!   Today's challenge is to create a project using the Imagine and incorporate either a stamped image or a stamped sentiment. The card I created was actually inspired by the stamps I used.  The "Hoppy Birthday" stamp is from Sarah's Pink By Design - Go Green stamp set  and the inside stamped sentiment "Toad-ally Fabulous" is from My Pink Stamper Punny-licious stamp set. (I know... it's a bit crooked, but it's handmade..right??) LOL This card is for a girlfriend of mine who is turning 40!! This is a standard A2 card with the frog image and it's layers cut at 3 1/2".  The base is SU craft and the background paper is SU Mellow Moss. The ribbon and pearls are just misc. from my stash. The layers are popped up using SU dimensionals.  Thank you for stopping by... I hope you liked the card.  Have a Crafty Day!!

More Than Favors Challenge Card

Hello, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you all have enjoyed your weekend... it seemed to just fly by for me. I wanted to share a card I made for the challenge over at More Than Favors. The Wacky Wednesday challenge was to make a card using a critter/animal. When I got the PinkByDesign Country Living stamps, I just knew I needed to make this card for my BIL because he is always saying "Holy Cow" so this worked out perfect! I was also able to use my Peachy Keen face stamps too, which I adore!! I like how this turned out,  I hope he does too! Thanks for stopping by.... Have a Crafty day!

My Creative Time Thursday Throwback Challenge

Happy Friday!! I hope you all have had a wonderful week. I have been so busy and haven't had time to post anything, but I stayed up late last night to make this card for Emma's (My Creative Time) Thursday Throwback Challenge.  The challenge this week was to make a shaped card using CAC cartridge and incorporate the color orange.  I absolutely love this cartridge and was excited to use one of the critters I have not used before.  I was actually inspired to use this cut because I wanted to use one of My Pink Stampers Punny liscous stamps that says "Hello Foxy".  This sentiment is stamped on the inside. I was also able to use my Peachy Keen face stamps, I absolutely love PKS!!  I really like how this little fox turned out, I hope you do too!  I wish you all a fabulous weekend.  Hope you get a chance to be CRAFTY!!

All of the projects are created using the absolutely adorable Nursery Tails cartridge. I fell in love with this cartridge the moment I saw some of the pics from CHA.  My neighbors daughter just had a beautiful baby girl last week, so I thought I would make some cute little gifts for her.
