Hi Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is doing great and ready for a new Cricut Cardz Challenge! For Challenge #118, “Anything Goes!” Use your Cricut to make a card, layout or craft project using any cartridge(s), any theme and any colors you’d like. Super easy and super fun!

For my design team card I decided to make a New Baby card. One of my best friends had a baby girl recently so I made a couple different baby cards. I think this card is really sweet and of course the Peachy Keen face is adorable. I used the Simply Charmed cartridge and patterned papers from Basic Grey and DCWV.

I added dry embossing, gems, pearls, ribbon & faux stitching for sweet embellishments.

Thanks for checking out my card and leaving me a comment.  Hope to you play along with us at Cardz Tv!

Hi Crafty Friends! I hope you’re ready for a spooky Cricut Cardz Challenge! Challenge #117 is to make an S-fold card for Halloween using any cartridge(s) and any colors you’d like. If you’ve never made an S-Fold card here’s a link to Mary’s cute card and instructions.

It’s been a while since I made an S-Fold card so it was fun to do that fold again. To cut the pumpkin’s I used the Smiley Cards cartridge. The patterned papers are from DCWV. Everything is inked, chalked and popped up on pop dots. Halloween cards are so fun to make and I look forward to posting more in the coming weeks.

Don't say they didn't warn you!

Thanks so much for coming by today and seeing my “spooky” pumpkin card. I am really looking forward to seeing your Halloween S-Fold cards!

Good afternoon Crafty Friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I’d like to share with you my DT card for Cricut Card Challenge #116. The challenge is to make a Halloween card using the card feature from any cartridge and using any colors you’d like.

For my card I used the Wild Card cartridge. I think I’ll add a couple more embellishments because he doesn’t feel quite finished. If I do, I’ll be sure to post an updated photo. I just love making Halloween cards and hope you like mine!

Just a cute little monster going Trick or Treating as a human.

I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder in Bubbles to add texture to the lil' monster.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. I look forward to seeing your Creature Feature cards at CardzTv!

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m excited to share my DT card with you today. I made this for Cricut Cardz Challenge #114. The theme this week is “Critter Cuties”. Make a card using a “critter” (dog, cat, cow, chicken, duck, horse, etc.) from any cartridge(s), and using any colors or theme you’d like.

I made this kids birthday card using the Create A Critter cartridge. I cut the dog, party hat and the balloon out using CAC. For extra fun I added fringe, glitter and a rhinestone to the party hat. I stamped on the balloon using a dollar stamp and then tied it with thread to the dogs tail. Then I popped all three up on foam adhesive. To add interest to the plain card base I used a strip of patterned paper and stamped the birthday sentiment. Last but not least, I added Crystal Effects to give him a little wet nose! I hope you like this card and be sure to join us at CardzTv!

I love this little doggie! He's so happy and cute!

Thanks for coming by and I hope to see your Critter Cuties! 🙂

Good Morning Crafty Friends! It’s August 1st and the start of a new Cricut Cardz Challenge! The theme for Challenge #113 is “School’s Cool!”. Make a card for Back to School using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.

I decided to keep my card clean and simple for this challenge. The apple is from the Create a Critter cartridge. It’s stamped using VersaMark and an ABC border stamp. I hand cut the stem from kraft paper and inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then I tied a piece of green cord to it and popped it up on foam tape. The border and apple are stamped using the HamptonArt Border Number stamp set.

Reading, Writing and Arithmetic!

I hope you like this card and come join us at CardzTv for this Back To School challenge!

Hi Crafty Friends! How are you doing? I hope your summer has been a fun one! Today I’m sharing with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #112. The challenge is to make a card with a tag or tags, using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

My card below was made using one of those little dollar stamps that so many of us love and love to collect. The cute crab is from Imaginisce’s Splash Dance collection. I colored him with Copic Markers and added Crystal Effects to make him shine! The tag is cut from the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge.

The cute sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set called Crab & Company.

Crystal Effects adds a perfect shiny gloss.

Thank you so much for coming by today. I know I’ve been absent for a few weeks. I’ll be posting a personal update soon to explain where I’ve been. I hope you enjoyed my card and will join us at CardzTv for this fun challenge!

Good Morning Crafty Friends! Are you ready for Cricut Cardz Challenge #108? The theme is “May Day”, make a card for any occasion using flowers from any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

For my 4 x 5.5 inch card I used the Give A Hoot cartridge. After cutting the tulips out three times, I used Copic markers to color the tulips and the rhinestones. I used my Nestabilities to cut a circle from the center then popped each of the tulips up on pop dots. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, Everyday Greetings.

Happy May Day!

I love to color clear rhinestones with Copics, Bic Mark It's or Sharpies. It's an easy way to get the perfect coordinating color.

Before I go, I wanted to give you an update on Bunny. After being very ill for two weeks she is is finally feeling better. She just finished two of her three medications and has been getting stronger each day. She’s still a bit slow but it’s so nice to see her getting back to her old self. Thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. I’ll leave you with a cute picture of Bunny napping with her new toy from her Grandma (my Mom).

Bunny Boo & Lambchop.
