Hi Everyone!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas filled with lots of love and laughter!! I had such a great Christmas, but does anyone else feel like December came and went in the blink of an eye?!! Way to quick! :0) I made this card using the Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge along with the My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas Stamp Set. I love that stamp set, so many darling saying on there! :0) I made this card easel style with sequins ribbon that I purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics.

My Pink Stamper November Design Team Post

Hi Everyone! This month for the design team post we got to do something super fun and creative which was to make a unique card fold. I choose do do a Tri-Fold. So many times, I just use the standard landscape fold. When I am really feel like "spicing" it up I will do a portrait card rather then landscape. I know, crazy right?!! LOL

For my card, I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up for the fence cut at 1.51 inches x 5.71 inches on my Gypsy and Create a Critter for the grass cut at 1.25 inches. The flower are from Sweet Treats cut at 1.54 for the small and 2.0 for the large. The darling sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's Flowers and Friendship Stamp Set. To make the Tri-Fold Card start with a 4 1/2 inch card by a 8 1/2 inch card and score at 1 1/8 and 6 3/8.





Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! :0)

My Pink Stamper Design Team Post

Hi Everyone! This month's design team post was to make a Christmas/Holiday card. I used the My Pink Stamper, Biggie Christmas Stamp Set. The Cricut Cartridge that I used was Winter Frolic. I cut the snowmen out at 3.5 inches and the banner cut out at 1 inch. I added a glitter heart and rhinestone that I purchased from Michael's and the sequins ribbon was purchased from Joann's. A couple tips is to always check out the ribbon at Joann's. They have the most incredible rhinestone/glitter section. The ribbon that I used was from the Little Mermaid collection. I just love it!! :0) Another tip is if you don't want to cut out the smaller features with the Cricut and glue them on, you can use a marker instead. You can take a look at the cheeks on the snowman to see how I colored them in. Make sure and head on over to Robyn's at My Pink Stamper to play along with the design team for the Christmas/Holiday Card Challenge! XOXO

Sympathy Card with My Pink Stamper Stamp :0)

Hi Everyone! Sadly, I had to make a sympathy card for my co-worker who lost his mom this past Monday night. She was a very special woman who touched a lot of lives and I had the pleasure of knowing her. We will be celebrating her life on Monday. I know she is in a much better place free of any pain and I will see her again someday. I used the Gypsy Wanderings and cut the trees out at 2.75, 2.5, and 2 inches. The bird was cut out at 1 inch. The mound of leaves and grass were cut out from DCWV Indian Fall Stack to make it look like a hillside. The stamped sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases.

Cricut Card Challenge- Things that go bump in the night!

Hi Everyone! First and foremost there is big news!! Cricut Cardz Challenge had now been moved to CardzTV. This week's challenge was to make something scary! I couldn't really find anything super scary with the cartridges that I owned so I tried my best. I used the card feature from the Wrap It Up Cricut Cartridge cut at 5 inches. I also used the Wild Card Cartridge to cut the bats and spider web. I use that bat and spider quite a bit around Halloween. The fence is a sticker from K&CO.



Come and join in on the fun over at CardzTV and play along! I can't wait to see what you make!!

Cancun and Donation Cards

Hi Everyone! I hope you all are having a great start to your week. My husband and I just got back from a week in Cancun. It was to celebrate my 40th birthday and our anniversary(both belated) but the timing worked out for both of us. Here's a couple of pictures from our trip.




Before I left for our trip I made a few cards for a gal that reached out to My Pink Stamper about making cards for women that are battling breast cancer. They will be passed out during a breakfast for the gals. Here's the link that Robyn at My Pink Stamper put together to learn more:
