Burrr.....

Hello all, 
It is cold outside tonight.  It is going to be below freezing tomorrow.  I made one last card tonight for two challenges.  I'm trying to get them in before they close.  I may not be able to make many cards for challenges next week.  I have a large card order to fill...YAY!  It's nice making a few dollars doing something you love (even if it's to buy more stuff). LOL  First: Scrapbookaholic by Abby "pink by design" it's cold outside, you are to make anything winter related.  Second: CCCC create a critter challenge.  This was quick and easy to make.  I used scraps, a PKS face and some baker's twine.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks for stopping "bye". 

You're out of this world


Hello all, 
I have another card today, for one challenge.  Music Monday the song this week is "Satellite" by Guster, you are to make a card based of the song. You do need to add something space related.  I think this card is a cute boys card.  I went a little green crazy, it's a green galaxy...LOL  I had the paper laying around from earlier. Most paper is PTI, I used a PKS face and the sentiment is from Paper Make Up. I also used one of those AWESOME action wobbles for the space ship.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks for stopping "bye".  

Sweet Lil Pincess


Hello all, 
I have a sweet lil card for you today, it is for two challenges.  First: Throw Back Thursday you are to use Paper Doll Dress Up or Everyday Paper Doll and do some kind of embossing. Second: Made by Momo you are to make something princess related.  I tried to make a "princess and the frog" looking card.  I should have added a frog...Oh well.  I do love how it turned out.  My daughter said she doesn't look like Princess Tiana. LOL  I said it's you, in a Princess Tiana dress. She said Oh!  I used a discontinued PKS face.  The back was impressed with the PTI woodgrain impression plate.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks for stopping "bye".

Anyway, on to the card and all the challenges: First- Fantabulous Cricut, the challenge is Snowy Delights, use anything with snow.  Second- Paper Playtime their challenge is to use Faces, any face, not limited to Peachy Keen(which I love). Third- Made by Momo snow challenge.  Fourth- Cooking with Cricut another snow challenge.  
This was snow much fun to make...LOL

21 & Fabulous: MPS Challenge for Design Team


Hello all and happy new year,

I'm so glad to be back and right on time.  I would have been sick if I missed this chance.  I'm not yet settled but I just can't pass up the chance to be a MPS Designer.  I, like thousands, am an admirer of Robyn.  She is just amazing, someone with 5 kids and all that energy is a hero to me.  It is wonderful watching her evolve.  I bet the almost 5 years ago Robyn never thought that a little old blog about stamping and using a little Cricut would have opened up so many opportunities.  I know, like most, we wish we had the drive and motivation to be so passionate with our desires.  Robyn is the first person you find when you buy a cricut and your hooked.  
While on the road moving from TN to CO I would use my husband's phone to get on the internet.  MPS was the first site I would go to after checking my mail.  I was so sad that I could not be a part of the challenges going on in the 12 days of Christmas and to know she was looking through for designers makes me sad.  I'm so glad I have one more chance for this first half.  This is a great opportunity and I'm so glad that Robyn looks for new and different talent. 
Thank you so much Robyn.
So, onto my card and the challenge.  The challenge is to make a card or layout using your favorite cart and her favorite colors; pink, green and brown.  You must have a blog, cricut or imagine to try out for the design team. Check it out MPS  
It is hard to pick a favorite cart with 200+ out and I only have 100, but if I had to pick one I would pick Doodlecharm.  I don't know why I just really love that cart. I didn't use, it I used 5 carts in my gypsy to make this card.   I was designing this cards in my gypsy for my husband's sister.  She just turned 21 and she is an AKA and their colors are Pink & Green, HOW PERFECT!  




















 Recipe
 *A6 size card: 4 1/2 x 6 1/4
*Card base is a Kraft card stock by Recollections
*Frame is from; Just Because Cards, Large frame is 4.39 gypsy size in PTI dark chocolate card stock
