Way to go!!

I made this card for the challenge over at:
The challenge was "Back to School".  I can't believe my grandson is old enough to start school.  He started kindergarten this year, soI made this for him.  The cartridge I used was Preserves.  I made an apple just a little larger for the shadow card base.  I also used George for the tag.  Inside I used a phrase from Boys will be Boys, which was "Wise Guy".  I really liked Julie's shape card and wanted to make one also.  Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for looking!!

Happy Camper

I have had a wonderful day in my craft room.  I finally got to sit down and do the challenge at .  The theme was vacation and we spent half of our vacation at our camper and that was the most relaxing part.  I used the Campin' Critters cartridge.  tfl.

Hang in There

As you can see, I have been going all crazy with my Imagine.  I can't stop using it, since it has been fixed.  I found the Wild Card 2 cartridge on sale at Michael's and since I am obsessed, I had to get it, lol.  The paper was from  Enjoy the Seasons.  tfl

Super Tweet

I used my Imagine again with this card.  The papers are from Lori's Garden, again.  The little bird house is from Cindy Lou.  The flowers are from Flower Shoppe.  Another scraplift!!!  tfl.

Vintage Flowers

I am soooo excited, I figured out what was causing my Imagine to malfunction!!!  It was a bad print cartridge.  I am so glad there was nothing wrong with the machine.  I will admit to scraplifting this from one of the Cricut magazines.  I used my imagine and used the papers from the Lori's garden cartridge.  I also used art philosophythe butterflies and flowers and Cindy Lou for the background piece.  tfl.

A HUGE thanks

I made this card for the challenge at BBTB2:  I used the elephant from Everyday Popup cards.  This paper is from Bubblegum Stripes, a pattern cartridge from the Imagine.  I wanted to use some bright paper. 

It is absolutely gorgeous here, today!!!  It is sooo motivating.  I even went out and mowed the grass.  It is starting to grow, now.  We have 70's here in Illinois and it feels so good.  We have had more 100's this summer, than I can ever remember.  Hope everyone has a good weekend and that it is nice where you are, too.  tfl.

Thank you very much!

Well, this is the card I made with my Imagine, before it decided to stop working.  It won't recognize my print cartridges.  Grrrrrr!  I used Kate's kitchen cartridge for this card.  There is some glitter and crystal laquer used on the card.  One of my friends gave me some tomatoes from my garden.  I appreciated it so much, as while we were on vacation, my garden dried up.  It has been soooo hot here!!!  tfl.

Life's Adventures

  This card was made for a challenge for:
I tried to use my Imagine to use the papers, but it won't work for me.  What frustration with the thing.  I love the concept of the machine and it has been a good machine, up to lately.  I guess I will be calling Provocraft, again.  I used the cartridge: Everyday Popup Cards.  tfl.

Vacation at the Smokey Mountains

We just got back from the Smokey Mountains and vacation about a week ago.  I have been trying to catch up on everything else this week.  We had a wonderful time and enjoyed spending time with two of our boys, daughter in law and grandson.  We rented a pretty house in the mountains.  We woke up to beautiful sunrises and went to bed with beautiful sunsets.  I think we all decided we would like to live there.  We took quite a few hikes and saw some beautiful waterfalls.  I usually brought up the rear.  I was out of shape from the previous winter and my struggles, but I got there eventually.  We saw some bears, also.  The week after we came back, we spent at our camper and got lots of rest.  I got to get some reading done, which I love, also.  During our trip to the Smokies, we took one day to go to North Carolina to see my parents.  This is a picture of them.  They are enjoying their retirement, there.  Hope to be doing some crafting, soon.
