Happy Birthday

Morning!! It's Monday and that means we are starting a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Mayra is hosting this weeks challenge. She has challenged us and you to use a Cricut frame on your project. Now I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this challenge. I checked out the frames that are on the Elegant Edges cartridge. I picked one out, cut the back of it. When I started cutting the top piece with the design on it, it got chewed up. Well, the design did. Tried again, and it happened again. So I decided that I would just use the back piece. I then used the Birthday Bash cartridge and cut the Happy Birthday sentiment. I popped up the frame and glued the sentiment to the card front. The bg designer paper is from My Mind's Eye-Happy Day 6x6 pad. The dots are from Doodlebug Designs Inc.-Snow Flurry Sprinkles. The inside sentiment is from the 'Make a Wish' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Hope you head over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look in the sidebar at the rules for our challenges. Then how about heading to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut frame cut. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Sentiments on both cards are from the 'Easter Blessings' stamp set. You can purchase a set by going to Cardz TV Stamps.

Happy Birthday To You


Morning! Hope ya had a great weekend. I sure did. Today I have the honor of presenting the project at Cardz TV Gallery. I sure hope ya'll have been visiting each Monday thru Friday each week to check out what my DT Sister's have been creating. If not, well, you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!! You just never know what is going to show up. It could be a card, an album, a frame, an altered item, just anything. And each uses Mary's stamps. My Mom had a birthday the middle of last week and this is the card I made for her. I am so loving the print and cut feature of both of my machines. For this one, I used my Silhouette Cameo. This cut is called House of 3 Spring Butterfly, by House of 3. It is file #9610 at the Silhouette Store. I totally love it, and so did my Mom. I used some ribbon that I had crinkled and colored and also some Dear Lizzy Enamel Dots. The sentiment is from Mary's 'Good Times' stamp set. You can get a set for yourself by going here.
I masked the stamp so I could stamp part of it on the front and part of it on the inside.

Thank you for coming by an visiting me today. I hope you like my card!!!! :)

Old Stuff Day........

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I sure did!! Was off for 4 straight days and I loved it!! Got my crafting on for 3 of those days. Since it's Monday, it means we are starting a new challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2. My wonderfully talented DT Sister Emily is hosting our challenge this week. Emily has challenged us and you, too, to make a project using a Cricut cartridge that you haven't used in a long time. I checked through my cartridges in the Craft Space and realized I haven't used the Art Nouveau cartridge in a super long time. Went through the cuts and picked the cattails. I'm loving the print and cut feature so I print and cutted the cattails. I flipped one in the opposite direction. I wanted a pond so I print and cut this one from the Create A Critter cartridge. The clouds are a Fiskers punch. The bg designer paper is from Kathy Davis-Poppies 6x6 pad. The sentiment is from the 'Think Spring' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Hope you plan on heading over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and checking out the projects that my DT Sister's have made. I can assure you that they are awesomeness for sure!!!!

Too Cute

Evening everyone! I know this is so unexpected of me. I usually don't have a post if it isn't DT related. But I was crafting DT stuff the past few days while I was off and decided to make a card that had nothing to do with a DT. I have a friend that I send her little girl cards for the holidays and decided to make her a St. Patrick's Day card. I found this adorable image in the Silhouette store. The file name is Baby Girl Holding Shamrock. She is by Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings. She is file #75433 and is a print and cut file. I enlarged her to fit most of the front of my card. Sorry, I didn't write down the size. I think she turned out adorable!! The pattern bg papers are open stock from Hobby Lobby by Paper Studio. The sentiment is from the 'Happy Days' stamp set by Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I finished up my card with a little doodling on the shamrock and some enamel dots by American Crafts-Studio Calico.
Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

She has challenged us and ya'll to use a Cricut 'Clock' on our project. I've just started good using the print feature on my Cricut Explore and am loving it.

The bg designer paper was printed from the Silhouette Store. It is called Retro New Years. It is design #72337. I thought it was perfect for Mr. Rabbit. The sentiments are from 'Build A Birthday' stamp set from My Craft Spot. I finished my card with some enamel dots from Bo Bunny Lemonade Stand.

It is a Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings Design and the # is71176. The bg paper was also printed from the Silhouette Store. It is called Paper Winter, by Digital Pink Ink and it's #69850.

The Lord Is....


Morning Crafty Friends!! Today starts a new Linky Party at PDE Linky Parties. This week we are to make any project that isn't a card. Now, ya'll know I just love making cards, but was ready for this challenge. I have discovered a new love for using vinyl. I love to cut it using either my Silhouette Cameo or my Cricut Explore. For this project I used my Silhouette Cameo. I did some glass cutting boards at Christmas and loved how they turned out, so I decided to make one of those. I cut the title using the Ancient Script font. Love how it looks. The shepherd and sheep are from the Silhouette online store. It is called Full Nativity and is by Lori Whitlock. It is file #70556. I just pulled the shepherd and sheep from the file, cutting the sheep twice. Everything was done on mirror image. I'm really pleased how it turned out.
Head on over to PDE Linky Parties and check out what my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a project that isn't a card and link up with us!!
Hope ya'll like my cutting board!!!! :)

Today starts a new challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2 and our wonderfully talented DT Sister Caroline is our hostess this week. She has challenged us and you, too, to make a Shape Card. There are several cartridges that have shaped cards on them. I decided to go with one from the Wild Card 2 cartridge. I thought this fish one was cute and I think hubby will like it. It was really simple and easy to make. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the eye and top fin. The sentiment is on the inside. It is from the 'Amusing Animals' stamp set from Scrappy Moms.
Please head over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the shaped cards my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there check out the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then head to your crafty space and create a shape card using a Cricut cartridge.

Love

Morning Crafty Friends!! I'm tellin' ya. This Alabama weather just can't make up it's mind what so ever. Cold as could be the first part of last week and then over the weekend-Spring weather!!! Loved it, but I'm wanting Winter to come and go quickly, not tease us with this Spring weather every other week!!!
But I know you aren't here to hear about Alabama weather. I bet you are here 'cus today is the start of a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 and you want to see what I created for it, yeah? Our wonderfully talented DS Sister Brenda is hosting this week. She asked us and is asking you to use a Cricut 'Charm' on your project. These are on quite a few of the cartridges. I've never used one before, so I wasn't sure I was even going to do this challenge. Then I decided to just go for it. I used my Cricut Explore to cut this silhouette charm from the Disney Princesses-Happily Ever After cartridge. The I got to hunting for the word 'Love.' I found this one in the Silhouette Online Store (#30004), so I cut it with my Silhouette. I did some doodling around the heart in the 'Love.' I also used what I thought was my Clear Wink of Stella Brush on it and turned out to be the White one. I decided that I like the effect and did the one on the inside the same. The bling in the corners and heart on the inside are from Recollections. The pattern paper is from the Recollections-Love 6x6 pad. I haven't added a sentiment to it yet, but will when I decide who I will give it to.
I hope you plan on going over to Bitten By The Bug 2  and checking out the projects that my DT Sisters have made. I'm tellin' ya, they are awesomeness for sure!!!! While you are there, check the sidebar for the rules to our challenges then head to your crafty spot and create a project using a Cricut 'Charm' on it. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
