The challenge over at Moving Along With The Times is a monochrome project.  I decided to use this challenge for my mother's day card and create this monochrome project:

I used 4 cut layers for the mom layer, the daisy flower embossing folder and the divine swirls folder for the background.

I used the Martha Stewart Branch punch for the white branches and white pearls for the center.

This is a close up look of the layers I used for the Mom and for the inside of the card.  Come Join us at Moving Along With The Times

For You Florals for playing over at Moving Along With The Times

This pop up flower box is a Elizabeth Design Die that I picked up at one of those Scrap Expos.  It really is a "wow" when received and that's good because it's a lot of work.
I used premade recycled paper flowers, "Stick-em" centers and a series of those centers to create the curlicue around the bottom of the flower basket. 

The paper is fancy pants and the card stock is Nina White. I know just who is going to receive this piece of hard work.

Happy Beard Day

Happy Beard Day! 

Created the man and the beard by welding two images from 2 Cricut Cartridges, Prehistoric Party and Male Hairstyles. The words are from Everyday Cards and a font I chose...  The paper is Fancy Pants and perfect for the 70's look of the man and the words. 

Creates a Great Man card.

Sentiments - No Images

The challenge at Moving Along with The Times this week is to create a project using a sentiment, but no images.  I have to use a lot of thank you cards.  So this one came in attractively handy. 

This card was made on the Cricut, the Thank You sentiment was from cartridge Hide and Seek Phrases.

Add a Sentiment

Thursday, 31 January 2019

DT Member Diane Louise chose the theme "add a sentiment to your card or project"

This is my add a sentiment card project.  So excited to be a member of this design team.

The elements of this card are from the Spring Fling Cricut cartridge. I used the spring flowers embossing folder, which also helped to merge the two papers together. 

Papers are DCVW, along with pop up tape and glue.

Heart of the Happy

I love the cut from the Cricut cartridge for the camper, I added the I'm Happy and the heart and the card itself made me so happy, that I just can't give it away. Do you ever do that?  Make a card and just can't give it away?

The paper is from Fancy Pants and I had a blast with this project.

Slow things down

I loved this card because this time of the year seems to fly and I'd like to slow things down, so I decided to make this sloth:

It was a lot to put together but afterwards, I really loved the look of this sloth hanging on a Christmas tree limb. 

Hope you get to enjoy every single day of the season! 
Merry Christmas!

I made two cards for this challenge so I could get ahead.... I like to think I will but every year, I'm still behind.  Ha ha ha, This is a "little Christmas pick up."  The cut is from JUST BECAUSE CARDS.  I used textured paper for every cut on this truck to give it some depth.  The tree is from Jolly Holidays. 

This is a cricut "Project" card.  Meaning it's already  made and designed you  just have to cut it and put it together and add your own special touch.  Mine was Stickles.

Halloween - Rob and Bob

I found this card on the series of Rob and Bob cards on the Cricut Design site and I love them! This was a very easy card to do and I love just using the creat it now feature instead of building my own complete card.  But I also love that I can customize it too! 


Our prize sponsor at Fantabulous Cricut is
I made this square card with this adorable blob monster

I added the boo from Cricut Holiday Cakes, some splats stickers, rhinestones and a bobble eye just for fun.  Printable Createables are great, give them a check out at..........

Happy Halloween - Join us at Fantabulous Cricut!

It's Pumpkin Time

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #336-Pumpkins
Make a project about pumpkins. But there has to be a least one cut from the Cricut Library!

And the prize is-

A $10 coupon code for anything in the store!
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

My contribution was this pumpkin box from It's Fall In The Details cartridge and I will tell you it was not an easy project.  It took me 3 hours! 
I had to stop to eat lunch because the project was taking so long. 

I am glad to get into the fall decorations and things though.  It's a fun season to decorate and soak in the rich colors of change.  It could go ahead and be cooler here in Texas.  I think I would like that. 

The box is fully lined, I forgot to take a picture of that, but you really have to concentrate that you're getting the top the right size to fit on the box and it does not feel like a good fit.  I would not recommend this particular project.  Cricut has many other pumpkin boxes that are better fits. 

That's just my opinion.

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.
