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

Welcome to Ruthie’s Banner Blog Hop! I know all of you are having a blast and getting inspired this morning. This Hop has so many super talented and creative ladies in it. Thank you to our Hop hostess Ruthie for hosting another fun Hop!
If this is your first time to my blog, I want to say hello and I hope you’ll enjoy your stay. If you have landed here by way of MoMo’s blog you are in the right place. If you get lost along the way or came across this post by chance, please click here to start at the beginning of the Hop.
Ok, let’s get started! I’m very excited to share with you my Christmas 2010 Banner! This is the first banner I have ever made. I really love how this turned out and think it makes a really cute decoration piece. Each banner piece was cut into the shape of a Christmas ornament and hung with gold cord onto gold ribbon. I decided to have each ornament represent a Christmas theme or scene instead of spelling out a word. I thought this was a fun twist on the traditional banner.
Here’s a list of products I used on this project:
The Cricut cartridge Christmas (digital download) was used to cut the Ornament & the House, Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge was used to cut the Christmas tree. Sure-Cuts-A-Lot was used to cut the poinsettia’s and the reindeer. I decorated the ornaments with, Peppermint forest patterned paper, gold bead trim from Joann’s, gold embossing powder, Distress Inks in Fired Brick & Broken China, pigment ink, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Scribbles iridescent gold paint, DecoArt Snow Writer, DecoArt Glamour Dust, gems, flock (it’s on the teddy bear), The Greeting Farm, Inkadinkado and Martha Stewart stamps. If I have left anything out or if you have any questions, please let me know. You can also email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for hopping with all of us today! Before I send you onto your next stop, I have some Blog Candy!!! I’d like to giveaway a set of Pearlescent watercolors.
For your chance to win, just leave me a comment telling me which ornament on my banner is your favorite! Winner will be posted on Monday November 8th. As for me, I like something from each of them but I especially love the little animals and snowman all bundled up in the snow.
So now it’s time for you to hop on over to the sweet and talented Sarah! Just click the button below and you’ll be taken to her blog. Thanks again for hoppin’, have a wonderful day!
Go Ducks! Any Oregon Duck fans out there today??

Hello! Today I’m sharing with you my DT card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #44. This weeks challenge is to make a Z-Fold card for Halloween. You can use any carts and colors you’d like! This was a fun card to make. I did keep it simple but I think it turned out pretty darn cute.
I used iridescent vellum paper to cut the ghost. I cut him at 4 inches using my Paper Doll Dress Up cart. To cut the word BOO, I used SCAL. I used my Creative Memories wavy cutter to cut the top of the card. The edges are stamped with a spider web stamp from Inkadinkado and embossed with iridescent ice from Stampin Up. The pattern paper is from Recollections and Target. Both of these papers are from last years Halloween collections. The ghost and pumpkin on the patterned paper are popped up using pop-dots. The orange cardstock on the inside of the card has been distressed using Tim Holtz’s paper distresser and inked with pigment inks. Stamping on the inside of the card is also from Inkadinkado. To complete the card I added white stitching around the ghost and the lettering.

I hope you can join in on the fun at CCC! We can’t wait to see your cards! Have a wonderful week and thanks again for stopping by.
I also entered this card into challenges at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays and Fantabulous Cricut. Both challenges required us to use real or faux stitching. Check out all of these challenge sites they are each a lot of fun!
