Nuts About U

I don't know why but I love these card! Made this one for my Great Aunt Marge in Cali.

Dragster Thank You

I made this for a friend who works with me but also works at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. My daughter and I are into NASCAR and the NHRA. We had never been to an NHRA race before and my dad wanted to go so I asked if I could buy tickets cheaper from him. He said just meet me at the track and I'll get you in. So we drove out there to find my friend with Platnium tickets, primo seating! My dad couldn't make it but my DD and I had a blast! Got him a $50 gift card to Famous Dave's as a thank you!

Matryoshka Russian Thank You

Made this for my boss for giving me a nice woman's polo shirt with the company logo embroidered on the sleeve.

Birthday in a Box

Had to share my latest project. I made this with a Close to My Heart box that I purchased at my local scrapbook show. It was for my BFF Shannan who's birthday is on October 31st AKA Halloween! Her nickname is Newt, hence the Eye of Newt bottle on the cover. Her favorite color is purple and if I do say so myself, this came out spooktacularly! Mwahhhahahaha! The inside is filled with a cake mix (not Devil's Food, although I was tempted), cupcake wrappers, frosting in Sunset Orange, sprinkles that are Halloween colors and candy bones, purple balloons and horn blowers from the dollar store that had princess crowns on them and I altered them with the cats. Thanks for lookin'!

Berry Sweet LO for Roxy

Made this during one of my Expression demos @ M's. Berry is from Paisley cart, font is from Birthday Cakes and the photo mat is from Ashlyn's Alphabet (I think). We just got a new puppy in June she is half Jack Russell & half Rat Terrier, we named her Roxy.

Rebel Skull - Rock Princess Sample Project

I made this card for a co-worker of mine. Her last day is this coming Friday, so it'll be a good bye card. Her favorite color is teal, but when I was at my LSS I couldn't find the shades of teal I wanted to make the card. So looking around I found this polka-dotted paper and used the purple as my accent color. It turned out really cute!

This card was inspired by my beautiful daughter! She loves those t-shirts from Wal-Mart with the cute sayings like the orange to the orange juice - Mom is that you? She is my little Van Gogh when it comes to art and she drew this adorable dinosaur that said RAWR means I love you in dinosaur. So I made this card and put it in her lunch box when she wasn't looking. She loved it. The dino was from the Cricut Lite B is for Boy cartridge too.

Lil' Tykes Car Card

We have a friend whose son has one of those lil' Tykes cars. Nico is so sweet when he says vroom vroom. The card was made with the new Cricut Lite B is for Boy cartridge. I just had to make this card for them because I miss my Nico.

Field Day LO

Trying to upload a picture on the Cricut Circle MB however it's not like it is on the other board. Hoping this will work. I love this LO I made for a scrapbook I made for my DD's PE teacher as a Teacher Appreciation gift at the end of DD's reign at the elementary school. :)

Happy Birthday to me!

Today is my 38th birthday! I am taking a break from the computer and uploading my pics of my crafts today. Happy birthday to me! I posted on my facebook account and asked everyone where my handmade birhtday cards were! ROFL!

Snail Mail!

Well...sometimes life gets in the way and you have to do what you don't want to, like do the laundry or paint a room when all you really want to do is make cards or play with the Cricut. I got behind in my birthday cards and now have to make belated cards. I really love the Paisley cartridge and this cute snail. I also caught up with a friend from elementary school, Dawn. She was so cute and now we are mothers and raising our kids. I love finding "dear" friends on facebook. I felt bad missing her birthday but wanted to make it special. She loved her card and posted a nice comment on her profile page.

Viva Las Vegas!

Finally a card for a family member! My favorite cousin Nick, my mother's twin sister's son. Nick loves everything Vegas, including Elvis. I share his love of Elvis and since I live in Vegas and it's so hard to make a masculine card, I came up with this one. It's kind of fuzzy, but the outside says...If after the first 20 minutes you don't know who the sucker at the table is...IT'S YOU!

The inside reads:Here’s to not being the sucker this year.Happy Birthday!

Oh Happy Day!

I recently have connected with some dear friends from the past on facebook. I met Melanie at a church in Port Orange, FL when I was going to Jr. High. My dad used to give nick names to my school friends. Maybe it was easier than learning their names. Who knows? Dad called Melanie "Melon Head". Remembering her nickname I totally thought how cute it would be to make a tri-fold card (my first one) and use Don Juan's Oh Happy Day with the smiley face. :)

Magical Birthday!

I have to apologize for neglecting my blog. I hope to be able to post more often this year and to catch up on my posts. January was a busy birthday month for me. This card was made for another friend that works for Disney. It's not Disney related but I really love the way it turned out. The unicorn is from the Paisley cartridge.

Belt it out!

This card was made for my High School friend, Jennifer. She is in a band and loves to sing. She even got me signing karaoke! We both love the color green too! I left the #17 open because that is her birthday. I scraplifted this design from the Custom Crops website & my favorite designer Donna Mundinger!

May All Your Wishes Come True!

My goal this year was to make birthday cards for all of my friends and family. This was for my friend Christa who works for Disney and is a huge princess fan. Christa had the honor of getting the first card of 2010! This card was the example from the Sweet Treats cartridge.

Lipstick Bday Card

So my picture was too big to post to the Cricut MB. I made this lipstick card for a co-worker of mine who's a "girly girl" through and through. Used the Paisley carts lipstick and cut off the XO part.
