Tweet Tweet

So I heard it is your Birthday.  How Tweet!  I made this with the Imagine and Imagine More Card cartridge.  The card base is from Michel's and then I printed the pink background and punched it with MS hearts punch.  The Bird Cage in from the same cartridge and I layered part of it.  Added the topper in contrasting colors.

Have Fun In the Sun

Challenge me Monday #65 Summer Fun.
Today was another busy day with the Wedding Project, but I just had to get this in and do something creative.
My stamp is from My Creative Time with Emma.  I use the silver duct tape and embossed it.  Nice effect.

You are the Best

I have been busy with my Wedding Project the past few days.  The card has 4 mats and one embossing on the mat, so there is a lot of cutting.  I thought I'd take a break and make this cute card from Anna Griffin paper and sticker.  Just needed a break and something different to look at.

Tennis Anyone

This is for a friend of mind who plays Tennis, well at least she use too.  I haven't seen her in a long while so when I found this in the Cricut Decals cartridge I thought of her and made it for her.  Maybe when she get this she will call me and we can talk over old times.

Happy Anniversary

Hello crafters.  Today is Saturday and I have been busy playling most of the day.  I am just enjoying the Cricut Decals cartridge.  It is so much fun working with this cartridge.  I cut the figures at 4".  The card is 5x7.  I really started out by wanting to make a birthday card for next weeks party.  This got in the mix.  I did make the Birthday card also. 
Happy Fathers to all.

Sing & Dance

Happy Friday to all.  Today I was working with PK stamps.  They are so cute.  I left a space on top to put in a name.

So today is already Thursday.  I worked with HP to fix some issues on my computer.  Got it done.  After all that which was about 2 hours I was ready to play.  I got a new cartridge yesterday, Imagine More Cards, so I thought I'd give it a shot.  Some really nice prints and cards.  I chose the Heart.  Pretty simple.  With the Imagine you do not need to much "Imagination"  They do it all for you.  I like to use the patterns and pieces for the cartridge.  Any way here is my Heart.

USA PK Challenge Patriotic Project

Good afternoon and I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.  This morning I started to gather my ideas about this challenge.  I wanted it  to be totally RED WHITE AND BLUE.  That to me is patriotic by itself.
I used my scrap pieces for the background to represent the flag and then just kept adding.  Of course the cute little faces from PK how can you go wrong.

#1 DAD

Happy Saturday fellow crafters.  This morning in bed I was watching on my little lap top, Youtube and got a great tip from Gina,  It was Using Your Scraps Part 1 and 2.  Great tip.

So I tried it and I made  this card with scraps.  I think it is a great way to use our many strips of paper we are always saving.  Real easy but it looks nice when done.

The #1 Badge is from Just A Note on the E2. 

Try it you will like it.

Believe..Throwback Thursday #196

So for this Challenge I used Cricut Lite Twinkle Toes.  A sweet cartridge for any little dancer in the family.  I went a little brighter than I usually do.  I guess I needed a change from all the soft colors I have been working with. 
This was a flash back, way back when I was a little Ballerina.  I'am talking way back.

Love You

Happy Friday Everyone. It's so funny when you are retired like me, you never know what the day is. I guess it is only important if you have something to do. All I do is craft. I have all the time in the world do to my fun things now.
Today I was learning how to MASK. I got my new PK stamps and they have different faces for the bodies. Not too hard after a few tries. Just have to make sure you have a clean cut of what you want to cover. PK has a Tutorial on their How To Page.
For today I made this cutie pie but with the original face.

Free Hugs

So today I received my new stamps from PK. They are so cute. I did one today. I need to find out how to mask a stamp because it comes with different faces. The search is on. Still learning on the Copic's too.

Stay Cool In The Pool

Today is already Thursday. Another week is almost gone. Well today I was thinking about my Grandchildren who live back east. Don't get to see them often at all. The last time we were together was last July for Maria's 8th Birthday.

Well they just got a new pool so they are all enxcited and ready for summer fun. I though I'd make this card to start off the Vacation. At least they will have my creative touches around them and a check for spending on some summer goodies. Don't forget the check, that really makes them remember you.

Today is Sunday and I have been working of getting my cell phone fixed with no luck. My phone is an on going saga. Great phone when it works but it has many situations. Went to T-Mobil and they said just order a new phone which I did but when I got home I decided to call T-Mobil customer care and add this situation to the list. Spoke with the REP and he said he would get back with me in an hour or less!!! Still waiting. Told me how to fix it which I did but still does not work. Lets see what they come back with when and if they come back.

In between I was working on a card for some friends that just lost their dog after only 9 years. Always a sad day. Hope the card expresses my concerns.
