BRRRRRRRRRR....Its beginning to look a lot like....

Brrr, it was truly nippy out there today. We've had rain off and on again since Sunday and today was really taking on the feelings of Winter. I hear that we had snow a couple of hours from here. I would much rather see snow than all this rain.

I'm having so much fun playing with my new Cricut, but its almost overwhelming. I just got 2 new cartridges in the mail today so I'm anxious to learn them.

The card I made tonight is with the image "Henry, the Snow Angel Fairy," from Paper Makeup Stamps. I had a lot of fun working with this image and have already thought of a few new ideas. I colored Henry with my colored pencils; fun flocked the snow and used stickles on his wings. The ribbon was an RAK and I don't remember where the paper is from. I also used my copic for Henry's face. I'm entering my card on the J.U.G.S. charity card challenge and Truly Scrumptious. I hope you all like my card and be sure to check out the "Henry" image at PMS because the proceeds from this stamp will go to help a family memorialize their son.

Rainy Sunday!!!!

Well, I'm so excited because my husband got me a Cricut Expression for my birthday! I'm so ready to play with it, but have barely had the time since receiving it. I've borrowed some cartridges from my mom and have played some. I've also ordered From My Kitchen cartridge and can not wait to create with that! I so have planned to make a mini-recipe album with it and am drooling just thinking about it. For those who have cricuts, I'd love to hear what your favorite feature and cartridge is.

Happy Birthday to Me!

I needed to make a sympathy card, which I've never made before and of course I got stumped. I decided to go with the simple and I'm pretty pleased with the results. Tell me what you think. While I was at it, I used my new Bird Call embossing folder from Provo Craft. I really liked how it turned out for this project. The stamp is from an old set I had lying around; the ribbon is from Heidi Grace and the brad I don't remember. I just hope this card isn't too simple.

On a happier note, today is my birthday and I'm excited because we are going out for dinner!!! No cooking for me tonight! Now, where to go is the question. Addison is excited, as she is anytime its a birthday and wanted to know if I would like a "Big Baby" for my present. Can you guess what she wants for Christmas? I only hear, "I want a big baby for Christmas" about every other day or so. LOL. Well, since both kids are down napping I'd better get off of here and enjoy some crafting time!!!

The brown/cream card I made this afternoon for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. Phew..that was a tough one, but I really liked it. The image is obviously from House Mouse; I stickled the bubbles and everything else was part of their requirement.

I'm back...finally!

Ok well it seems like I'm hit and miss with this blog, which is not my intention, but with 2 little ones here the days are busy and the nights seem shorter and shorter. I think I'll have to start drinking coffee at night to stay awake so I can have playtime too! So, I decided to play with the card sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches and had a blast with it. Pretty much everything on the card is from an RAK. The image(also an RAK from Christa at cafemom) is adorable and I fell in love with her. I fun flocked her muff, earmuffs and top of her boots. I used my copics and Bics to color her. Enjoy!
