Our challenge from Susan from bbtb2 is to use a 3-D rose or flower cut from Art Philosophy or another cartridge that has a 3-D flower.  Thank you so much Susan!!!  I love, love, love making flowers.  I love making any card with flowers.  I made this card using my gypsy to weld the shape from Elegant Edges and also the frame from the same cartridges.  The flowers are from Artiste and the leaves from Flower Shoppe.  tfl.

Way to Go!

Hello, today is my baby's 24th birthday.  Wow, time flies!!!  He is my youngest son and he loves sports of any kind, especially soccer.  This winter, he was in a soccer league.  All of his friends had a great time!  I made this center step card for him using the Boys will be Boys cartridge.  The stars were made using George.  We are expecting a big snowstorm this evening.  I have to work the evening shift and hope it starts after I get home from work!!!  I hate driving in snow.  Well, I guess that we were due for it, because we haven't gotten too much snow this winter, yet.  Well, thanks for taking a look and for all your kind comments!!

Hope your Birthday's as sweet as you

I haven't used my Artiste cartridge that much and was trying to explore some of it's images.  I decided to use the acrylic stamps that came with it.  This card was made using a Mojo Monday sketch, also.  The challenge over at bbtb2 is to made a card with a cupcake and using the color amethyst.  I struggled with this card and still am not sure about it, but here it is.  tfl.

You're my Love Story!

This is the valentine card that I made for my husband.  I know it is kinda girly.  My other passion is reading, so I really liked this sentiment for his card.  My husband likes to read his newspaper to me, while I am trying to read a book and it is somewhat distracting, lol.  The card base and the frame is from Elegant Edges.  I used my gypsy to weld the shadow of this shape.  The little girl is from Kate's Abc's and the tag is from Art Philosophy.  So this is my last valentine of the year.  tfl.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I have to be honest, I totally scraplifted this treat envelope from "Obsessed with Scrapbooking" site.  I just loved the idea and thought it would be great to hold some mint m&m's for my boss.  She loves mint anything.  This card went with it.  The treat envelope came from Artiste cartridge and the flower from Flower Shoppe.  Now to the card.  I have gotten tired of making the usual card shape and used the center step card for this card.  The heart is from Sweethearts cartridge and the Koala bear is from Create a Critter 2.  tfl.

Butterfly Kisses

I am so excited that I was asked to be part of the design team sisters at BBTB2.  I have enjoyed posting my projects to this site in the past and have enjoyed sharing with these ladies, so much.  Brenda gave us a challenge of using a heart or cupid in our project, using our Cricut.  I just finished this valentine for my grand-daughter.  I used the cartridges:  Doodlecharms, Art Philosophy and Create a Critter 2.  I put an action wobble on the butterfly to make her jiggle.  Please come join the challenge.

Blu Birthday!

Hello, another of the ladies that I work with wanted a birthday card for her two year old grand-daughter.  She loves the movie "Rio" with the parrots.  It took me a while to find the only parrot I had on Wild Card 2.  I hope she likes it.  By the way, that was a really cute movie.  Very colorful.  The card shape came from the Art philosophy cartridge.  My husband who is my greatest critic, which I don't always enjoy, said the parrot was hard to see with the background.  I cut the bird a little larger with a yellow shadow and that helped a little.  I took this picture before I did that.  The inside says:  I will be Blu if I don't wish you a Happy Birthday.  One of the parrots is named "Blu".  tfl.

Bananas for You!

I just can't stop making these valentine cards from Create a Critter 2.  This is a pedestal card that I made for my grandson.  There is an action wobble on the monkey and crystal laquer on the hearts.  Valentines are so much fun to make.  They are such "happy" cards.  tfl.

You're my Cup of Tea and You are the Cherry on Top!

These two cards were made from my Imagine for Valentine's Day.  Both cards were made with the Kate's Kitchen cartridge.  The sentiment from the tea pot card was on the cartridge and the cherry card sentiment was computer generated.  The card bases were made with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  We have had snow every day for the past three days.  Glad it wasn't that much each time.  I am looking forward to spring, which is my favorite season.  tfl.
