Fall is on the Horizon

Happy Fall is on the horizon!  Used in this project was Cricut Explorer cartridges - Photo Play Paper-Autumn Day and the All Occasion Box cards.

 I really enjoyed making this project.  I love fall and I love the fall colors and putting out beautiful things and create the warmth and smell of autumn in my house.

I used some small orange jewels and blue cornflowers with crystals in the center.  I also made the envelope out of polka-dot orange paper.

I made a white backing so there is room to write an encouraging note to the person who receives this card.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Come join us for our fall challenge at Fantabulous Cricut.

The Beach

I would love to go to the beach right now.  The hot weather in Texas has been unbearable.  I don't want to complain though, the fires in the west and the heat are truly heartbreaking..... THAT is unbearable. 

Thinking of the beach, and seahorses gliding through the water makes me happy . This card is from the cartridge Anna's Summer Soiree.  I used AdornIt papers, Water bubbles,  Copic markers BG72 and BG23 for the shading and dots. 

Thinking of You stamp that I designed myself at This is a simple card, but I hope it brings joy to someone else.

Whooo Loves You?

I needed a bunch of quick cards to make to send all my grandkids.... just to remind them that their Nana and Papa love them. 

This owl is a mixture of the Paisley Cartridge and Create a Critter. 

I cute some basic squares out of a lovely paper that I found at the Scrap store that we have here in Denton, Tx.  It's a wonderful place to lose a few hours and engage your creative mind. Any whoooo (see what I did there), I used some stiffened felt to cut with, white pen to outline stitching and googly eyes for the fun of it. 

The answer to this question is Nana and Papa! We had a wonderful time this summer getting to visit our 5 grandchildren.  They are spread throughout the United States.  It was fun driving with my husband, talking and dreaming as we go. 

I like to line the envelopes that I use with scrap paper.  It looks nice and provides a protective layer for the design in the envelope.  Here are some of the other owl cards I completed:

After a sabbatical

I had to take a sabbatical from making cards due to some house rearranging.  Boy was that all depressing. But, today, I'm back at it.  Happily.   Today's card is for Fantabulous Cricut.

Happy Birthday! 

 This card is from the original Wild Card cartridge.  Sometimes the oldies have some good nuggets to go back to.  I needed a birthday card and BOOM there it is.

I made a matching envelope and candles inside the card. I used Fancy Pants papers and card stock. 

Come join us at Fantabulous Cricut and make a birthday card.

Posey Puppy

Challenge 362 - Over at Penny's Paper Crafty challenge is Anything Goes.  I had the sponsor, Fred She Said


Most of the Fred She Said images are pre-colored, but I like to color and learn my practice, so I put the image in Photoshop and desaturated it until it was just black and white.  Then I colored it how I wanted to color it.   

 I uploaded the image into Cricut and cut the puppy 6 times so I could layer it on this card.  Then I cut a dog house from the Pop-UP Neighborhood cartridge.  I embossed the wood to create texture and depth.

I also cut two bones for the inside. On the front, I used a stamp from CMTH that says "Yappy Birthday" I also stamp one of the bones on the inside with a stamp from the same set that says, "I woof you"
and I stamped the little dog in the corner

I colored the puppy with E13, E17, E19, E39,
RV06, YG17, YG13, R29, Uniball White Pen

Tea Time

Challenge 361 - Over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges the theme is "Anything Goes."

The Paper Shelter is the sponsor I had to work with 

I used the Tea Time bundle.  They were all pre-colored images.  I cut them out and glued them up, put some Earl Grey tea in the holders and put them neatly in the box.  It makes a handy get-well gift or a hope you have a better day. 

The box holds 5 of the tea bag covers.  I added a brad to the little flower in the front to hold the box closed. 


It's a pretty cute set!
