Happy Blog Anniversary

Hello -

Can you believe it is the one year anniversary of the start of my blog.  Click HERE to check out that very 1st post.  This all started for a requirement of a design team entry.  While I did not make the design team I did discover the rewarding process of blogging.  I truly enjoy sharing what I create and I love to hear comments and see new followers.  Thank you to everyone to checks in from time to time. 

Today I am going to share a card I made with my favorite cartridge, Create a Critter.  I also used Kate's ABC's and Home Accents solution cartridges.  I welded the scallop boarder on the Home Accents cartridge to create the card.
Supplies:  Cardstock (American Crafts), Stickles (Ranger), Cricut, Gypsy, Create a Critter, Kate's ABC's & Home Accents Solutions cartridges (Provo Craft).

Thanks for hanging in there with me.  I hope I continue inspiring others.

Challenge and Recipe Share.

Hi Everyone - 

I hope everyone is having a happy father's day weekend.  Tomorrow we will be having a BBQ in honor of my dad!  Can't wait.  My brother is doing the actual grilling and I am making the family's new favorite baked beans recipe.  I tried a recipe called Ultimate Baked Beans that Amanda from shared and my family just loved it.  It is now my most requested dish.  Check it out HERE.  I promise it is so delicious.

Now I also wanted to share a card I made today for a My Pink Stamper Card Challenge.  You can see the other participants and details HERE.  It is a birthday theme challenge.  Everyone is sharing such great things.  I pulled out a oldie but goodie cartridge.  The Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge had such fun shaped cards.
Supplies:  Cardstock (American Crafts), Stickles & Pearls (Ranger), Cricut, Gypsy & Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge (Provo Craft).

I will be checking out everyone's  great projects.  I hope you do too!  Be sure to leave a comment or follow my blog.  Thanks for looking!

June Pinkalicious Blog Hop (a little late)...

Hi everyone - 

Even though I am 'behind' lately I could not let a My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious blog hop pass me by.  This month's theme was anything summer.  So far everyone has made GREAT projects.  I was inspired to make some shaped cards.  I thought the ice cream theme screamed summer. 
Both cards were cut using the card feature.  I just used my Gypsy to make sure they would still fit in a A2 size envelope.

Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Cricut, Gypsy, Sweet Treats cartridge (Provo Craft), Stickles (Ranger).

Have a Great Day!  I love Reading your comments.

Hi -

Okay, I have been super busy so I am a little late in joining this color challenge but I thought it was a fun color combo so I wanted to give it a go.  It was posted by My Pink Stamper.

Mushroom Card

Hi - 

Today's card features Kate's ABCs.  These mushrooms and the butterfly were all one button on the cartridge.  I also used my new Martha Stewart punch on the sides for a bit of interest.  It is called Double Arches and it is a large punch around the page set.  It is hard to tell but I also used some liquid glass from CTMH inside the polka dots on the mushroom and on the body of the butterfly.
Supplies: Cardstock & Liquid Glass (CTMH), Dimensionals (Stampin Up!), Pattern Paper (DCWV), Cricut & Kate's ABCs (Provo Craft), Boarder Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts).

Thanks for stopping by.  I love to read your comments.
