Graduation Treat

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #302-GraduationMake a project about any kind of Graduation!This Weeks Sponsor
Dreaming Tree SVG's


The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!
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.  
If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

The University of North Texas Colors are Green, Black and White and our adopted college daughter (from Church)  is graduating from there.  Enclosed in the box are some hugs, kisses and $$$.  



The card is a Make-It Cricut Project you can find on the Design Space Home Page.   The Box can be found on the Tags Bags Boxes and More Cartridge or Pretty Packages 

The tassel can be made by making quick cuts across a long strip of paper, attaching it to a ribbon or string and rolling it, finishing with glue or scor-tape.  It just makes the graduation package!  There are hundreds of tutorials on a simple google search.

I hope you'll join us and play at Fantabulous Cricut!

Giddy-Up #Bugaboo

Penny's challenge this week has us using #Bugaboo stamps.  The sentiments that came with the stamp are "howdy" or "giddy-up"
I loved coloring this with my prisma pencils.

Rick-Rack, Brads
Fancy Pants paper


Giddy- up stamp with lasso clip-art I added. 

My next door neighbor just had a little boy and I delivered it with a huge box of diapers.

Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon

This image from Oddball art just spoke to me.  I have such great memories of traveling with my family growing up.  Putting stickers on the back of our travel trailer and hitting the National Parks.  




So I added a road from Cricut and enjoyed coloring the image.  Put it on a bunch of 70's type flower card.  This was just fun!

I LOVE PUNS!  In fact, way back in the beginning of my blog I did cards that were almost exclusively "punny."  


While I LOVE what I am learning with my Copic markers and coloring.  My first love will always be my Cricut and creating things with puns!

  • Go Canada Cartridge
  • DCWV Embossed Paper
  • Fancy Pants Paper Pack
  • Cricut SANS font
  • Twine
  • Neenah Cardstock Base
  • Zig Blue Glue
There's no sentiment inside yet.  It could be a joke, 


Thinking of You, Just Because, etc.  I send a lot of "Get Well" cards and jokes and amusing cards are always welcome.  

Hope you will join us at Fantabulous Cricut!

Gallbladder Problems

My friend, Mike, was in the hospital for a week before they finally discovered the problem was his gallbladder.  They removed it and he's good to go.  I made a card for him to make him smile a little.



This is a favorite die cut and stamp set from Close To My Heart called School Years.  I don't care so much about the school theme as much as I just love that there is a little boy with the group that I can use for male cards.


This Card is Cricut Print and Cut Word Bubble and Star, CTMH - School Years, Fancy Pants Paper,  #BradandEyletOutlet brads.  

I'm entering this card in 

As You Like It Challenge - Use Your Favorite Die

CHALLENGE 158 Anything goes - Crafting From The Heart

Challenge #241 - Anything Goes - Addicted to Stamps


As part of this same set, I made this card for Mike's wife, to encourage her when they didn't know what was wrong.  We've been girlfriends for 20 years.   Rare to have friends that long when you move around in the military like we did. 





I am entering this card in:

Summertime and tubin' in Texas

This week's challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty is Anything Goes.  Our sponsors are: 

ALL DRESSED UP and PAPER CREATOR

Image result for heart
This is my card:



Cricut water cuts from Wild Card -Grass
and the Water from Disney Princess
Eyelet Outlet for the ladybug and flower brads
Ribbon



I loved this image because of my Summer memories in Texas, tubin' down the Guadalupe river.  Youth group activities and family fun at the river are a huge part of my own teenage memories and then I passed those down to my own kids as well.  Plus, this little lady is not a skinny mini.  She is one of the Busty Ladies in the Paper Creator series.


Thanks for looking!
