So excited...

I am just loving this file! It is from THE CUTTING CAFE. This is the Greeting Card Folder.
it will hold 6 regular cards and 6 envelopes or approx. 4 embellished cards....Also instead of filling with Handmade Cards, you can put Envelopes on one side and a Note Pad on the other side.... How cool is that!?!
I had so much fun decorating the outside...

...and the inside of this folder.
 I used Melody Ross designer collections papers. 

Here are the cards I made to go inside...

Have a great night!

Autumn card with MCT

I have a card to share with you today that I made with my new MY CREATIVE TIME items. I was so excited to get them in the mail-so fun to get crafty packages, don't ya think!!?!! I just had to buy the whole release this time-I couldn't leave anything out!
Well, they have a challenge going on to RECYCLE IT-so I had a brad that I had used on one of Chelsie's baby shower gift bags. Our pup Max had gotten one of them when my daughter set it on the bench and of course it had candy in it-so he grabbed it. I did save the brad, but the bag didn't make it! So, I have re-used it on this card.
I also used: MCT set Piles Of Smiles and her XL LABEL DIE along with XL Label Borders.
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

The Cutting Cafe and Halloween Trio

Hi all! Today I want to share with you a card I made for The Cutting Cafe. I have used the Halloween Trio and the Google Eyes Sets. (make sure to check out The Cutting Cafe Store, as there are lots of AWESOME Halloween and Fall sets available)!!
I just purchased a new sewing machine a couple of weeks ago, and this was the first time I had the chance to check it out a little. I did some sewing around the card for a border, I added some droopy goo I had in my stash and some google eyes to the Candy corn from the trio. I also added a crooked smile with a stamp from Peachy Keen, and a couple candy corn embellishments I had in my stash as well. Hope you like it!
P.s. make sure to check out all the DT creations and inspiration with this set and more on Wednesday evening over at The Cutting Cafe Blog.

I have a card to share with you today...I know...surprise!!
I have used WINNIE-a digi image from Squigglefly. I think she is adorable and such a sweet lil witch. Winnie is drawn by artist Jane Beljo. If you haven't checked out Squigglefly lately-you may want to do so, as there are lots and lots of NEW holiday images to pick from!
I colored her up with my COPICS. The designer papers and the BOO embellishment are all from Recollections. I found the Sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, but unfortunately that challenge was already ended!
Hope you have a great day!
Challenges entered; I will be entering this card into the Outlawz Friday Copic Challenge-Anything Goes.

This week over at The Cutting Cafe we are using the  RAIN BOOTS shaped card Template! These little Wellies are just adorable and so fun!!
 I have used a sentiment from Squigglefly -it is included in a set called: What Life Is All About by artist Ashley Summers.
Papers are from The Blossoms and Butterflies stack by DCWV. I have cut out the little butterfly from the same page and added a couple gems.

Baby shower pics

Hi all! Just a couple of Baby Shower pics to share with you...
This is Chelsie and Josh with their diaper cake that Josh's Dads wife made. Confused yet?
This is the cake and a few decorations, theme plates and napkins.
These are the goodie bags for the winners of the games.
I can not believe that in all the commotion, I forgot to snap a pic of the arch with all the little animals I cut out with my cricut, along with the Baby shower sign! I will have to see if Chelsie happened to get a pic of it, and show you later! UPDATE: she didn't get one either--what a bummer-it was so cute!!
Have a great day!
