It's a Boy

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails with a frog or two thrown in there. Morning! Here it is Monday again and time for the new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Diana is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to use a Cricut cut of a frog on our project. I'm not really fond of frogs, but sometimes we will have some teeny tiny ones that will get on our door going out to the deck. You can see their little sucked on feet as they cling to the glass. Now those are kinda cute.
I decided to make a baby card this week. Since I seem to always make little girl ones, I went with a little boy one this time. This is from the Nursery Tails Imagine Cartridge. I love how it turned out. Since it prints and then cuts our with the scallop, I decided to make a round card base. I took two circles from the Design Space Shapes and welded them together. I also cut two different sized ones to go on the inside. The inside sentiment is from the 'Congratulations' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Please head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and look at all the great frog projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, check in the sidebar and read the rules for our challenges. Then head to your crafty space and create a project using a Criciut cut of a frog.
So looking forward to seeing what you make!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

I Ruff You!

Morning my Crafty Friends!! Today I get to present the project at Cardz TV Gallery.
I decided to make a fun card this time. Kadoodle Bug Designs has some great SVG's. I love the Pampered Pooch set. This little puppy is just adorable!! I popped it up on the front of my card. I punched the grass from a punch. On the inside I put the doghouse that is with this set. So totally cute!!! I used the 'Barks and Bones' stamp set on my card. This set is retired but Mary has a great selection of stamps. You can check them out by going here.
I hope ya'll have been checking out the projects that my DT Sister's have been showcasing each week day. If not, then you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!!!

Made these for our Kiddo's

Morning!! Hope all is well with you. I had a great day off yesterday and played a little in my crafty room. Can't show what I made yet, but thought I would show ya'll a couple of things that I made for my Kiddo's a while back. I used my Silhouette Cameo on both of these.
This first one I made for our son. The file # is 74452. I printed and cut it out, applied it to the wood with modge podge and then modge podged all of the wood. I love this and so did our son.



This next one is the one I made for our daughter. It is #75490. Our daughter got a huge kick out of it and she loves it. Thought it fit her family perfectly since she and her husband have 4 children. This is outdoor vinyl in black.

 
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today. And I hope ya'll liked my projects. :)

Mother's Day

Morning everyone!! Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was beautiful with sunshine and just the perfect temperature.
Are ya ready for our new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Caroline is hosting this week. She has challenged us and you to make a Mother's Day project using any Cricut cut. My Mom loves Humming Birds so that is the direction I went for my card. Using my Explore, I print and cut the Humming Bird from the Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge. I think it turned out great. I print and cut two so I could pop the top one up. The frame around the Humming
Bird was cut from the Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge. I used the piece that cut from the inside as my sentiment piece on the inside along with a Humming Bird that I print and cut in a smaller size. The pattern paper is from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad called Quilting Bee. The ribbon/bow is some seam binding that I crinkled and dyed. The sentiment on the inside is from the 'Mother's Day' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I finished it off with some half white pearls from Hobby Lobby.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's have made. I'm tellin' ya, awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look over in the sidebar for the rules for our challenges. Then head to your crafty room and make a Mother's Day project using a Cricut cut.

I hope ya'll have been visiting every week day and checking out the projects that my DT Sisters have been showcasing. If you haven't, I'm tellin' ya that you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!!!
I seem to never have a birthday card ready when I need one, so I decided to make one. Kadoodle Bug Designs has some adorable Cutie KaToodles SVG cuts. I just had to use the Barn Owl one. It is so darling!!! I cut it in purple and popped it up on a couple of ovals that I cut from the Plantin School Book Cartridge, which I also popped up. The pattern papers I used for the ovals came from a Recollections 6x6 pad called Simple Pastels. The sentiment is from the 'For the Bird's' stamp set. You can get a set of your own my visiting Mary's Stamp shop right here.


I finished off my card with some Sequins in Lavender and Bubble Gum.
Come back everyday this week and check out what my DT Sisters have in store for you. You'll be glad you did!!!!

I Want to Ride my Bicycle...

Good Monday morning all my Crafty Friends!!! Isn't it a beautiful day? I sure hope ya'll had a great weekend. I did, even though I worked both Saturday and Sunday. Are you ready for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented leader Susan is hosting this week. She has challenged us and you to make a project using a Cricut cut of a Bicycle. I ended up making two cards. I made the red bicycle card first and wasn't really sure that was what I wanted. Then when I got the free 2 week subscription to Design Space, I found these bicycles on there. It said the cuts were called 'Bicycling'. Well, I called them perfect for this challenge!! I cut 2 different ones. Then I went in search of the perfect bg paper. I thought I could remember having a 6x6 paper pad that had a sheet with bicycles on it. And I found it in the MME-Sunny pad. The sentiment on front of this one is from the 'Simply Said' stamp set and the inside sentiment is from the 'Ticket Talk 2' stamp set. The sentiments on the other card are from the 'Be My Valentine' stamp set. These stamp sets are from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
We sure hope you decide to play along with us this week and make a project using a Cricut cut of a 'Bicycle'.
Hope ya'll like both of my cards!!!! :)

Partly Cloudy

Morning my Crafty Friends!! Hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great even though it rained most of the weekend. We are singing Rain, rain go away..... around here!!!! :)
I have the honor of hosting the challenge this week over at Bitten By The Bug 2. I decided since we are having so much rain that we should make projects using a Cricut cut of the sun and/or clouds. Taking advantage of the free two weeks subscription from Provo Craft, I print and cut this from the Something to Celebrate cartridge. Love the happy smile on the sun. The little clouds on the inside were cut from the Paper Pups cartridge. The inside sentiment is from the 'Congratulations' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I decided this would make a great graduation card since that is right upon us, too. Please hop over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there look at the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then head to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut cut of a sun and/or clouds. Can't wait to see what you make!!!

Happy Birthday

Morning!!! It is my day to present the project at Cardz TV Gallery. If you follow me regularly, you know there is this little girl of a dear friend that I sent cards to. Her birthday is coming up, and like so many, the theme is Frozen. So I just had to purchase on of the print and cut files. I really like this Anna with Sunflowers. It is so Spring!! I backed it with this yellow cardstock. I used the 'Happy Days' (front) and 'Good Times' (inside) stamp sets. You can purchase these and all of Mary's stamps by going here.



I finished my card off with a little bling from Bo Bunny-Key Lime Jewels.
I hope you have been checking out all of the projects that my DT Sister's have been making and presenting at Cardz TV Gallery each Monday through Friday. If you haven't, then you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Pam is our hostess for this week. She challenged us to make a project having something to do with April Showers/Rain. I decided to use the umbrella from the Paisley cartridge and to do it with the print and cut feature on my Explore. I so love doing the cut and print when I don't have a lot of time to work on a project. I cut it four times to give it dimension instead of using foam tape. The bg DP is from Bella Blvd-Summer Breeze. The enamel dots are from Doodlebug Designs-Spring Assortment. The sentiment is from the 'Good Friends' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there, check the sidebar for the rules for our challenges.

Everything is better....

Morning all my Crafty Friends! Hope ya'll had a wonderful Easter. We did. We had a wonderful service at church and a great meal and fellowship afterwards.
Today it is my honor to present the project over at Cardz TV Galllery. I let time slip up on me and had to decide what to make in a hurry. I had cut these darling cuts from the Disney-Pooh Font cartridge out and decided to use it for my card. I just love baby Tigger and this sweet little ducky. I cut several so I could stack them to have depth instead of popping them up. The b g paper is from Kathy Davis-Poppies 6x6 pad. The enamel dots are from Doddlebug Design-Birthday Boy. The sentiments are from the 'Just Saying' stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps.


I hope ya'll have been visiting Cardz TV Gallery each day Monday thru Friday and checking out what my DT Sister's have been making. If not, then you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
