Good Morning Crafty Friends! I can’t believe October is flying by so quickly. Halloween will be here in one week! I’m excited since it’s my favorite holiday and I love to hand out candy to the cute kids. But October is not just a time for tricks and treats it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To help promote this worthy cause, why not make a card for a friend or a loved one, as a reminder card for self-exams and mammograms, a card congratulating a breast cancer survivor, or a card of encouragement for someone currently going through the trauma of breast cancer. Also don’t forget to do your own self-exam and get your mammograms!

Challenge#119: “Let’s Hear it for the Girl’s” Make a card for Breast Cancer Awareness, using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

Think Pink!

I used Birthday Bash to cut out the letters and embellished them with white faux stitching.

To stamp the background I used an Inkadinkado stamp set called Friendship. I added my own pink ribbon and a tiny ribbon rose that came from my stash. Thank you for coming by and leaving me such sweet comments! I hope you all like this card and join us at CardzTv for this challenge.

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! 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).

Good afternoon Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having a good day. I apologize for getting my post up so late. My Chihuahua Bunny has not been well so I wasn’t able to work on my post. She’s fighting a liver infection so I’ve been giving her meds and keeping a close eye one her. We are really hoping and praying that she pulls through. She’s a fighter and a spunky little girl so we are keeping positive.

I do want to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #107. The theme this week is “There’s no other, like my Mother”. Make a Mother’s Day card using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

I hope you like my card. I used Create a Critter to cut out the flowers and Plantin Schoolbook to make the frame. The flowers are sprayed with perfect pearl mist and embellished with buttons.

This card turned out just how I wanted it to. Clean, Simple and Happy!

Six happy little buttons, tied five different ways!

 

Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my card. Have a wonderful day!
