Cricut Cardz Challange-House Card!!

Hi Everyone!! Are you ready for a super fun new challenge? This week over at Cricut Cardz Challenge our new theme is to make a card with a house and something that includes lace. I used the Downtown Stack from DCWV. I really love that stack, especially for men. The stamp that I used is from My Pink Stamper More Faithful Savings. The little black squares on the side are from the inside on the windows. I have some brads that are just like that, but I liked the idea of using something that was already cut out from the card. Head on over to Cricut Cardz Challenge and come join in on the fun!!

My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! This Pinkalicious is going to be so much fun!! If you went to my site first, please head to the beginning which is Robyn My Pink Stamper's website. The theme is something spring!! It's so cold here in Washington State that I love the idea of something spring!! For my project I used Wrap it up for the adorable white picket frame box(cut at 11 inches). Isn't it perfect for Easter??!! I could see it also for someone moving into a new home. :0) Any hoo, I digress...lol the adorable little girl is from Kate's ABC's(cut at 3 1/2 inches). I added some rhinestones to add some flair to the card. I can't remember which cartridge I cut the tag from...I'm thinking Wrap it up, but it could have been Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. :0) Sorry that I didn't write that down. I put tulle and pastel colored Junior Mints inside the basket. The Happy Easter sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Happiest Moments Stamp Set. I love that set!! It's got all the holidays wrapped up in one!! :0)

This blog hop is going to be fun and little different then I have done in the past. I was contacted by Linda at Fancy Framework.com. She asked to do something a little different which was not only to have a blog hop, but also to fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. I and many others jumped at the chance to help this worthy cause and really liked the idea!

I also mentioned that it would be really neat if we could auction off what we made and Linda and the other gals thought that would be a great idea too, so here's how it works. If you are interested in winning the amazing giveaway of the Lindy Stamp Gang products(photo available soon), which just happens to be the sponsor of this blog hop all you need to do is leave a comment!! It's that simple! You do not need to be a subscriber, although I would LOVE IT if you would!! :0) A huge thank you to Tracey over at Lindy's Stamp Gang for her support!!

For the bidding I made this recipe box using Lindy Stamp Gang Scintillating Silver over the entire box and Cotton Candy Pink for the ribbon. I used From My Kitchen for the die cuts on the recipe box. I love how this turn out!! Now I just need to make one for myself! ;0)


and this adorable Action Wobble card using From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge and My Pink Stamper Everyday Life Stamp Set:If you are interested in bidding on the card and the recipe box and recipe cards leave a comment and include the word "BID" and the amount you are bidding, i.e. BID-$10.00. Please note all bids are tax deductible and go directly to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. I will close the auction out on Sunday March 6th 12:59 PST and the highest bidder will get the recipe box and card after their donation has been completed. I will send a link to the winning bid my Monday March 7th.

Cricut Cardz Challenge Design Team Bookmark

Hi Everyone! Here's a bookmark that I made for the Cricut Cardz Challenge. This week we got to do something a little outside the norm and got to make a bookmark. I love this idea for two reasons, it's something fun and different and I have been wanting to make a bookmark for my Bible so it was perfect timing!! For this challenge I used the Playtime Cricut Challenge and Forever Young for the skirt. I recently purchased a second expression since my other one was acting up and it came with this cartridge. I am so happy with it. It is soooo cute! If you would like to purchase Playtime but you don't need an expression, I have seen them on sale on Ebay...you know me and Ebay!!! LOL The darling sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper More Faithful Sayings Stamp Set. I added a few rhinestones, a brad and a cross charm that KraftyKatsy had sent to me. Enjoy!! Make sure and head on over to participate in this challenge!!! XOXO

Made by Momo Inspiration Challenge

I had so much fun with this Made By Momo Challenge because it was open to interpretation. It was all about what inspires you. I am most inspired by colors. I find colors in all things such as, clothes, bedding, and design magazines. I like to find something that really stands out to me and then make a card from that. It gives me a starting point. When I see the colors and then I think what can make with those colors? It's kind of like how Project Runway has people take pictures of something that is interesting to them and then makes an outfit from that. My inspiration for this card was this pretty chair that was refurbished to more modern colors. It was in the March Family Circle Magazine. Here's the picture:



I used Paper Trey Ink PaperTulle, rhinstones, and My Pink Stamper Everyday life Stamp Set.
Head on over to Made By Momo's blog and join in the challenge!!! To see a video of how I made this card, please click on the link below:
