My LAST post for THE CUTTING CAFE DT...for now...

Hi all!
Well, today is a sad post for me!!
This is my last post as part of the THE CUTTING CAFE DT!! As a rule, you can only be on the DT for two consecutive terms, then you must sit one out. So, maybe...just maybe... at a future time, I will be listed as part of TCC DT again!
Todays card I have made using: FUN WITH SILHOUETTES--which includes 66 images, and now has been updated with 36 of the images that are cutting files!! ( I used my cricut and MTC to cut out the two background trees) I also used: EVERYDAY MINI WORDS  which I then punched out with my SU tag punch.
AND....this is your lucky week--you will want to make sure to visit and comment on each and every one of us THE CUTTING CAFE DT's who are participating... as you have the chance to win the file that each DT member has used for their card! The drawings will be held Saturday--so make sure to check back too!!
My thoughts are with all of you who are in the path of Irene!!

Happy Monday-hope your weekend seemed to last longer than mine! It didn't help that I had to work from 6am to 5pm on Saturday!! (I did get an hour and a half for lunch--so was at least able to get home and let poor Max out!!)
Today is the start of a new Squigglefly Challenge: Waterworks. We would love to see you do anything water related--there are so many different options--surprise us!!
Here is my card:
I have used the Squigglefly image by Mark Hicks called Baby Shower.

The Cutting Cafe and Gumballs! (updated)

Hi all! Today I have a card I made with another one of the newer files available over at The Cutting Cafe--Little Gumball Machine   I just love this new set---so cute and there are two different Gumball machines to pick from and two different sizes-and lots of sayings!

Hope you all have a great day--I have a BUNCH of catching up on to do today! And so far, (and it is 11:24am) my hubby seems to have forgotten today is our anniversary!!! I think I may have to whip up a - your in the dog house" card for him!!!

Here is the card I made--then asked my hubby to look at--yep--he had totally forgotten!!! This image is from Squigglefly and  is called In The Dog House--by Marlene S. It was so perfect for today! He did take Emily and I out to dinner (late lunch) at LaSenorita after that-so all is well! Wow--what weird weather we are having today--it thundered and rained so hard while we were at the restaurant that the lights went out--so we hurried home , we figured our puppy Max was scared to death by himself--and it hadn't even rained here!! But boy those clouds are sure dark ones!!

The Cutting Cafe with Silhouettes

Hi all! I love this new file FUN WITH SILHOUETTE SET-there are 66 awesome silhouette images on this file---you can make a card for most any occasion! I have used the flower pot and added some dried lavender stems to it-(from my own yard!) then made the flower pot a bit bigger and popped it up on top of the flowers. Not only is it a pretty combination--it smells great too!! I have also used another new file-EVERYDAY MINI WORDS for my sentiment. Both of these files are available over at THE CUTTING CAFE--so hurry on over and take a look!

Have a great weekend--and thank you for stopping by!

Back to School with The Cutting Cafe

Hi! I am so not ready for the kids to start back to school---but it is only about 4 weeks away...
The summer has been HOT and SHORT!
I have made this card with several files from THE CUTTING CAFE -
I colored her all up with copics and used printable papers from Pink Petticoat ( I think that is where they are from--I had them printed already)
I also used a little stickles on the apple on her jeans.
I wanted to tel you, too, that Regina is having a Design Team Call!! You can find all the details HERE. I can tell you that it is super fun to be on this design team! And I have to say THANK YOU to REGINA, she made me my very own HANDMADE JUST FOR YOU CUSTOM CIRCLES---and I totally LOVE them!!! Now I can personalize the backs of my cards--SWEET!!!

Squigglelfy Challenge card and news...

This card was made for the Squigglefly challenge this week---to use hand writing on you card-isn't this little Farm Froggie just adorable? He is available over at Squigglefly and is drawn by Eline Pellinkhof.

On another note, I have actually now heard from the folks at the Cricut Rewards program--they basically said that cricut rewards are shipped direct so therefore the cost is determined by weight, value, and destination....and they will be looked into to see if there is a better way. There was no mention, however of my complaint of the cartridge cutting the #5 dancer out backwards.

Emily's appointment went very well--looks like her wrist is healed now too---no more splint!! Yeah!

Just a couple updates....

Hi all!  Sorry I have had no new cards to show you in the last couple days....time is just getting away from me again!! I thought I would let you all know that even after emailing Cricut  about the problem with the Twinkle Toes cartridge--I have had NO REPLY....guess everyone is right-their customer service could sure use a make-over!!! Maybe they should start there, rather than putting a "new" cricut machine out every couple months!!
On another note--we go again tomorrow to take Emily to Grand Rapids to the DR.--Emily has been going to Physical Therapy now for about three weeks, (and Kevin and I and Emily are soo impressed with what a difference there is in her arm) I can't wait to see how the Dr. feels about these improvements!!!
Well, hope to be back soon with an actual card to show you! Have a great day!
