Hi all!!! I am sorry to have been missing for a couple of days! I have been making cards like crazy --a friend is selling them where she works, and she sold 20 of them in the first day or so--then she ordered 9 special ones-and I made 10 more to take to her as well. I didn't get pics of most of them--I have to try to remember to always do that! Anyways, on to more exciting news today--Serenity Scrappers is having a contest for a 2 page-8x8 layout of a place you have visited.
Last week I went with my daughter to Mackinaw Island, with the Daisy group. One of the places we visited while there was the Butterfly House--I took lots of pics, so decided it would be a grand idea to make a butterfly layout. Here it is-Hope you don't think it is too busy!

Ok, so do you remember when I posted this card?
WHAT WAS I THINKING??????? YIKES--that is scary! Well, I never did get this in the mail to my daughter--which was the reason for the sentiment.... that is one of her favorite sayings!! (When I found this on the My Pink Stamper set-I had to get it!!)
It just didn't fit--so this is what it looks like now...
And I have made a new card for the sentiment! Here it is....
Better? I think so, so I would love to hear what you think, oh, and I don't ever mind if you tell me a card is not all that great--like the first one!!Byyyyeee....
Hi everyone! I have had time to make a few cards today...I made this one for the Peachy Keen Challenge-which was a sketch for us to follow! I used my adorable Peachy Keen Stamp faces, on these little cute strawberries that I cut from the Preserves cart. The sentiment that I used is one from My Pink Stamper-fruit and Veggie Puns.
Hope you like it, and have a great day!!

This weeks challenge is to make a birthday theme project using the Celebrations cart. Unfortunately I don't have the Celebrations cart--so I checked out the images on it, and tried to come up with some similar images--I found a couple on the Doodlecharms Cart. Here is my card--hope you like it!

I am so excited about the new carts I have recently purchased!!! One of them is the Holiday Cakes made specially for the Cricut Cake--but I don't have the Cricut Cake! Boy '0' Boy does this cart have some really cute cuts though! For this card I have used the "baby1' image on page 31, and also this ADORABLE little elephant "love2 and love2-s" on page 38. I made the flower using the same papers, and added a little Prima flower in the middle. I added a metal accent heart and used my crimper for added detail, and I used one of my Peachy Keen stamps for the cutie's eye. Thanks for stopping by--and as always I would love to hear what you think!

I just love Thursday Throwback Challenge time with Emma!!! Wild Card won over Celebrations for the weeks pick--I was able to borrow this one, as I didn't have it. We were supposed to pick our favorite holiday using the Wild Card Cartridge. My favorite holiday is Christmas, and although there weren't a whole lot of choices for Christmas themed cards on this cart-I am pretty happy with how my card turned out!
Here is a pic of the inside too.Thanks Emma for the challenge!! They are always fun to do! Don't know what I am going to do next week though, I don't have the Celebrations cart either! My Zooballoo should be here soon though!!! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi ya'll! Over at Fresh Brewed today is a new challenge! I guess from my title you can guess what it is! Yep! Christmas in July! I have used this little cutie from Fresh Brewed. Colored her up with my copics, and then gave her dots to boot! Go on over and check out the other DT's as well! Have a great day!

Hello! Just chillin' today! I finally got some cards done for a giveaway at my daughters bridal shower--I am in charge of the games, and prizes. I made several cards today for it--and had it all packaged up and THEN thought--Oh I should have taken pics! Well, a little late--it was already all together--but I think they turned out cute. I can show you a card I made for one of my daughters though. I used the cricut cartridge Paisley. I also used a sentiment from the My Pink Stamper set Buggy Punnies. My daughter loves this saying, so thus the reason why I used it-even though I didn't have Bees on the card!

Yeah!!! I have another scrapbook page done! This one is for the Peachy Keen Challenge where the challenge was to make a card/scrapbook page of your summer destination-and add buttons, brads, or bling. Emily had lots of fun at the campground trying to catch chipmunks with acorns. So that is my page -I haven't had a chance yet to get the vacation pictures developed, but I have left two spaces here for them on this page. I used the cricut cartridge Mickey and Friends for the cute little chipmunks. I also used Peachy Keen stamps for the eyes,and face on the dot. Have a great night-hope to see you back here tomorrow!!
Hi! I am home from vacation, and I have made a card for Emma's Thursday Throwback Challenge.
The challenge was to use Zooballoo and make an "animal" project. Well, I didn't have Zooballoo- ( I have ordered it, but it won't be here til next week probably) so I made my card with Animal Kingdom using this adorable little lamb, and the cloud is from Create a Critter. The sentiment I made on my computer. The cute little lambs face is a Peachy Keen stamp!! Hope you like it Emma--I really am happy with how my little lamb turned out- soo cute!!!

HI folks! I have missed creating this last week terribly!! Lesson learned is: bring at least the bare neccesities, so I can make SOMETHING!!! Tomorrow we are running home in the morning to get Emily's friend, she is coming to the campground to stay the night with us. It has been very HOT here this year!! YUCK! I like it a little cooler!! I thought I would show you a pic. See you Sunday!!! (maybe Saturday--fingers crossed)

So, today is another exciting blog hop with new images from Fresh Brewed Designs. if you just visited Tracey then you are right on! To start at the beginning- you will want to go Stacy's. I decided to make another scrapbook page for my daughter Emily's book! Wow! That is like 4 or 5 that I have made now in the last couple of weeks! Yahoo!! I have used this adorable new Grace image--she is SO cute! When you are finished here, go on over to Heathers--she is the artist of these wonderful cuties!!
Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way.

I decided that I am really excited about the few pages I have got done on Emily's scrap book--so when Emma challenged us to make something with the older cart New Arrival for her Thursday Throwback--I wanted to make....yep, a scrap book page!! I made the pea pods from New Arrival--I think they are so adorable! I stamped little faces on the peas with my Peachy Keen Stamps, used a SU punch and also the Top Note from SU, and a couple of other punches for my page. I also used one of my new My Pink Stamper stamps--from the Fruit and Veggie Puns set. ( I know it is hard to see--I can't get my camera/computer to co-operate with me today!-but it says Loving you is Easy Peasy!) Hope you like it!
I also thought I would real quick show you the card I made for the DT call for My Pink Stamper--I didn't make it, so I am sure that it is ok to show now.
I used a digital image from Squigglefly and cut it out-cut out a couple more doggies and the tree with my cricut and added them to the card, and used a stamp from the My Pink Stamper set Punny-licous.
