Hoppy Birthday Card...

Today's card is another cut from Create-a-Critter.  I'm thinking this would make a great little boy birthday card.  I used the Storybook cartridge for the top note shape in the background.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts & CTMH), Gel Pen (Signo), Stickles (Ranger), Ink (CTMH), Cricut with Storybook and Create a Critter (Provo Craft), Stamp (My Pink Stamper).

You've Got Mail...

That's what I calling this card.  I am not sure I am crazy about my color selections on this one but I love the cricut cut.  I don't know maybe I will try it again with different colors?  Oh and I actually tied a real bow on this one.  I normally cheat and just do a knot.  ;)
Supplies:  Cardstock & Ink (CTMH), Stickles (Ranger), Boarder Punch & Dimensionals (Stampin Up!), Ribbon (American Crafts), Stamp (My Pink Stamper), Cricut & Doodlecharms Cartridge (Provo Craft).

I want to thank everyone of my followers.  You make me want to craft more and hopefully inspire you.  I love comments so thanks for taking the time.  I am also having fun checking our all of your blogs!  Thank you for sharing your creativity too!!

Thank Goodness it's the Weekend!

It has been a really long week in our house.  Between snow days, colds, and work I really needed this down time.  I hope to get to a  lot crafting done this weekend.  It is a long weekend for me too since the office is closed for MLK day. 

Okay so earlier this month I made a submission to the My Pink Stamper design team.  Although I was not one of the lucky ones chosen, there were so may talented entries.  I enjoyed looking at all of them and can't wait to see what the new design team comes up with.  It also lead a few new people to my blog.  Thank you to all who have left comments and decided to follow.  It means so much to me and I hope you stick around.  I will try to continue sharing my creations and I hope you will find this blog a source of inspiration.  Robyn is hosting a blog hop to get things started with her design team.  I went through all of them to get her code words for her first challenge.  What fun and so many great projects and cards!  I am going to link the following for the challenge.  I hope you all decide to join in.  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

Mouse Valentine

Hello -

Today's card features yet again another cute creature from Create a Critter.  I used the flip feature on my Cricut Expression (can be done on the Gypsy too) to get two mice to face each other and the rest was my daughter's creation.  The concept was her idea and when she explained it to me I got excited to try the flip feature.  She used a sponge dauber to create her back ground.  The little flower in the girl mouse's hair and the flower the boy mouse is holding is from an EK Success boarder punch that she pieced together.  I think it is just the cutest card.
Supplies: Cardstock & Ink (CTMH), Stamp (My Pink Stamper), Ribbon (American Crafts), Stickles (Ranger), Boarder Punch (EK Success), Cricut & Create a Critter Cartridge (Provo Craft).

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a crafty day!

Design Team Call

Okay so one of my favorite stampers and cricut users who has a ton of you tube videos and has provided a constant source of inspiration to me has announced that she has two spots to fill on her design team.  Robyn from My Pink Stamper has inspired me for over a year on you tube.  I am a big fan of her DVDs and her stamps so I had to at least submit an entry.

The full details for the design team call can be found on Robyn's blog here.  The basic rules are to use Pink, Green and Brown plus one additional color of your choice.  I chose to make a Valentine card featuring a stamp from My Pink Stamper's Punnylicious set.

Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts & Stampin Up!), Stickles (Ranger), Stamps (My Pink Stamper), Cricut with Create a Critter cartridge (Provo Craft), Ink (CTMH), White Gel Pen (Signo), Dimensionals (Stampin Up!), Ribbon (misc.).

I'm crossing my fingers I get chosen because it would be such an honor.  Wish me luck!

PS:  I would love to have more followers and/or comments.  I would welcome the feedback.  :)
