Thank You Card

First I want to welcome all of my new followers.  It warms my heart that you have chosen to follow my blog and I love all your comments.  It is such a great motivation.  At this time in my life I could use all the motivation I can get!  Also spring is here and my flowers Easter Lily's are blooming.  Oh so pretty.  I just love this time of year.

Toady's card is pretty simple but I just love this paper from Die Cuts with a View.  It is from their Doodling Around stack that has been out for a while but it is still one of my favorites.  I picked mine up at Jo Ann's not too long ago.  The tree is from the seasonal April Showers cartridge.  The layers on this cartridge are so easy but the images are so cute.  It is one my newest and now my one of my favorite cartridges.  The stamps are from The Stamps of Life's 'Thanks2You' set.

Supplies: CS (Stampin Up!), Pattern Paper (DCWV), Stamps (The Stamps of Life), Ink (CTMH), Cricut, April Showers cartridge (Provo Craft).

Thank you for viewing and comments are always appreciated.  Be sure to become a follower too!  ;)

Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Tonight's layout is to participate in Robyn's (aka My Pink Stamper) blog hop.  I was ready and waiting for this one.  Initially she posted we needed to do a scrapbook layout so I got to work on that using the new April Showers seasonal cartridge.  Well I just popped over to her site before typing this up and she had posted the wrong challenge!  Ahhh but all is well because it was changed to a spring themed project which just happened to be the focus of my layout!!  :)  I hope you enjoy and I can't wait to see what everyone else makes.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Pattern Paper (Stampin Up!), Stickles (Ranger), Cricut, April Showers cartridge (Provo Craft).

Just a few more Canvases...

Okay - just a few more canvases from my daughter Ally.  She is really having fun making these.

This is the last of canvases for a little while.  I hope you enjoyed.  My daughter certainly enjoyed creating them.

More Canvas Art

Okay so my daughter made another canvas wall hanging.  Word is getting out she is doing these and we are almost out of smaller canvas (I am so happy they were used up).  Now we still have a lot of larger ones so she needs to get creative and use those up too!  Same as last time she did all the painting and assembling.  I just cut everything from my cricut.  Even though this was for a little boy I used the Disney Hanna Montana cartridge for the font.
 Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts & Stampin Up!), Cricut, Gypsy, Hannah Montana & Create a Critter cartridges (Provo Craft), Acrylic Paint, Ribbon, Fibers (Misc.), Staple Gun.

I hope you have a crafty day!

Wedding Card

Another Wild Card Cricut cartridge creation. A dear friend of mine got married last month and I had to make her a special card. She is also a scrapbooker so I knew she would enjoy a hand made card.

 I used my Gypsy so I could make sure I sized it to fit into a regular A2 size envelope since I needed to mail it.
 The sentiment stamps on both the outside and inside of the card are from My Pink Stamper.
The stamp on the back is a favorite from The Stamps of Life. I just get a kick out of it!

Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Stamps (The Stamps of Life & My Pink Stamper), Ink & Bling(CTMH), Stickles & Pearl Stickles (Ranger), Cricut, Gypsy & Wild Card Cartridge (Provo Craft).

Wild Card - Get Well Soon

I finally (FINALLY) got the Wild Card cartridge.  I have wanted it since it debuted forever ago but I had the baby bug and all the reviews basically said don't bother without the expression it is just not worth it.  I could see their point since you are limited in size with the original cricut.  But since I got an expression for Christmas I picked up this cartridge from Custom Crops on my last order.  This is one of the first cards I made (will not be the last).  It was so easy and I made the matching envelope.  I just thought it was too cute.

Supplies: Cardstock (Stampin Up!, American Crafts), Stamp (The Stamps of Life), Ink (CTMH).

Have a crafty day!
