Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge Banner

Hello my crafty friends!!  I am so sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I have been so  busy with Valentines Day, Teacher Appreciation Week gifts, my daughter's 8th birthday and our trip to Disneyland, that I just haven't had time to post.  I almost forgot to submit my entry for the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge.... down to the last couple of hours now.  The challenge was to make a banner. I was so excited for to do this challenge because I have always wanted to make a banner, and with my daughter's birthday this month, it was PERFECT!! So with no further ado... here is my birthday banner!  My DD love it... I hope you do too!!  Thanks for stopping by.

Here is the card I am entering in the Cricut Circle Blog weekly challenge.  We are required to use the cartridges that we originally received with our Cricut machine, which for me, is the Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials.  I incorporated both of these into the card.  Sorry for the poor picture, but it was taken at night since once again I have waited until literally the last moments to enter.  :(   Thanks for stopping by... Happy Crafting!!

Bee Mine

Happy Thursday!!  Today I am sharing a Valentine's Day card that I will be giving to my husband.  This card was changed about 100 times before I was finally happy with the results.  Does that happen to you??

Cooking with Cricut Challenge

Hello... Happy Tuesday!!  Today I am sharing a card I made for the challenge over at Cooking with Cricut. This was a Birthday challenge, along with an optional sketch and we were also asked to try to use Peachy Keen stamps if we could.  Well... it is no secret that I am a HUGE fan of PKS so of course I had to add the cute little face from the Princess Faces stamp set.   I loved the sketch they provided, so I decided to incorporate that as well.  This is another eleventh hour submission for me... somehow I forgot the card was due today, so I have been scramblilng to get it done.  I did the best I could on the pic considering the sun is setting, so the lighting wasn't so good.  Anyway... I hope you like my card!!  Thanks for stopping by.... Happy Crafting!!
