Hello Crafty Friends! I hope you are all having a great week. My week is going good and I’m looking forward to the weekend! St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and if you haven’t made a card, now is the perfect time. Crafty Cardz Challenge has a fun themed challenge just for you.

Challenge#127: “ERIN GO BRAUGH”
Make a card for St. Patrick’s Day using GREEN, BLACK and WHITE ONLY!

My 4×4 St. Paddy Day card is below. I used the leprechaun hat from Paper Doll Dress Up and the clover from Give A Hoot. I stamped the background with a Studio g stamp, embossed the hat, glittered the black trim, inked/chalked around each element and even though it doesn’t show the hat was dusted in green Pearl X powder and the clover is painted with green pearlized paint.

This is one time I wish I had an Action Wobble. Oh well, pop dots did the job!

I think the argyle embossing really adds a nice touch to the hat.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you create for this challenge. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and be sure to enter this fun challenge at CardzTv!

Hi Crafty Friends! Are you ready for the next Cricut Cardz Challenge? I hope so, because it starts now!

Challenge #120: “Attitude of Gratitude!” is the theme this week. Make a card for Thanksgiving using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.

For my card, I made a shape card using the sweet little squirrel from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I think she tuned out darling.

She is just the sweetest!

To embellishment the card, I sponged the darker brown pieces with brown inks, embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped them up on pop-dots. Lastly I gave her a twine bow and an acorn with a handwritten sentiment on it.

I love making shape cards with my Gypsy and Cricut. If you have never made one, be sure to give it a try. They are so fun and always a hit!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please join us at Cardz Tv for this fun Thanksgiving 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).

Today marks the start of Cricut Cardz Challenge #92 and I’d like to share my Design Team card with you. This weeks challenge is “Hootie Halloween”. Make a Halloween card using an owl from any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

This sentiment from Hero Arts was perfect for my 4 x 4 card.

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a fabulous time hopping! I would like to say welcome and thank you for participating in the Fall Blog Hop! We are excited to have you play along today. If you landed here from Chris’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you just came across my blog and want to play along or if you lose your place, below is a list of all the blogs in the hop.

My project is a Vellum Tea Light Topper. This is my original idea and I’m super excited to share this with you. I think this project is great for adults and kids. We are using a battery operated flameless candle. So this would be safe for kids to display in their rooms. I also think this would look beautiful on a fireplace mantel, end table, night stand, your desk at work or even as part of your table setting for the holidays. It’s really versatile and can be changed up for any holiday or season.

Today’s card was made for Cricut Cardz Challenge #23. We had to make a card with red as the main color. I decided to make a 4×4 card featuring an apple from my new Cricut cart, Give A Hoot! The sentiment stamp is from Studio g, polka dot ribbon is from the Target Dollar Spot, green polka dot paper is from Me & My Big Ideas and the red gingham paper is from Joann’s Peppermint Forest paper stack.

Thanks for checking out my card! Your comments are really appreciated and loved. Have a wonderful day!

A perfect card for someone special!
