Dropping you a line

Hello all,
Here is my fifth card in my Life's a Party series using Joy's Life "You're so Punny" stamp set. I used the cute monkey on page 36 with Dropping you a line sentiment.  I just love this little monkey!  The kraft cardstock back ground came from DCWV playtime stack.  That is just a great stack if you like kraft and fun backgrounds.  I used some twine for the sign the monkey is holding. I really think this is a cute card.  
Don't forget that I'm giving away a set of Joy's "You're so Punny" set.  All you have to do to qualify is comment on all 6 post and I will announce a winner on Sunday.   I hope you are enjoying my card series.

Ahoy Matey

Hello all,
Here is my fourth card in my Life's a Party series using Joy's Life "You're so Punny" stamp set. This card is also for Joy's Design Team Thursday.  This card came out so cute.  I used the skull and the shape card layer on page 34. I added some twine and red rhinestones.  I really think this is a great card for a little boy.  I also stamped the inside with a sentiment from this set.  This is just a great set and I am giving one away.  Remember you need to comment on all the post from this series.  Also check out all the DT's great projects here.  I hope you like my card!

You are a Treasure

Hello all, 
Here is my third card in my Life's a Party series using Joy's Life "You're so Punny" stamp set.  I used the treasure chest on page 24 with "You are a treasure" sentiment.  I sponged the back ground, which is something I haven't done in awhile.  I used some bakers twine and two different nestabilities.  Overall I love how simple it is.  I think the sponged back drop came out good.  
Don't forget at the end of this series I will be giving away a Joy's Life "You're so Punny" set.  All you have to do is leave a comment on all the post in this series for a chance to win.  I hope you like my card!

You're Da Bomb!

Hello again, 
Here is another last minute card for a challenge.  The thing with this card is that I made it 3 days ago and just kept forgetting to post it.  The challenge is CCCC Indie Art.  I love this cart and do find myself using it from time to time.  I chose the bomb off the cart and I see my girl Sarah aka Pink Cricut is coming out with a set that would have been prefect for this.  I hate it isn't out now...Oh well.  I think this card is super cute and hope you do too!  

Good Times!

Hello all, 
This is a last minute card for the BBT2.  This week you were to use the pineapple from Wall Decor and More.  I think this card came out cute.  It's was quick and easy to make.  I hope you like my card.

Hoppy Easter

Hello again, 
This is my last post for the day.  It's just a simple Easter card, it's not going in any challenges.  I used the Spring Holiday Cards cart and added a PKS face to it.  The paper is from PTI, Sweet Blush and Lemon Tart.  It's a simple and sweet card.  I hope you like it!  

Happy Easter

Hello again, 
Here is my second Easter card for today, it is for two challenges.  First: Wacky Wednesday "Easter Theme".  Second: Cooking with Cricut "Easter Theme". 
 I had a lot of fun making this card.  I used my Imagine and the Nursery Rhyme cart.  This little bunny looking at the butterfly is so cute.  I only popped up the flower.  The settings on the imagine are a little off.  The sentiment is from Pink by Design, Spring has Sprung set.  All the card stock is from PTI, Sweet Blush and Spring Moss. The ribbon is from PTI also, Spring Moss stain.  I really love this simple Easter card.  I hope you you do too!

Happy Easter

Hello all, 
I have my first of three post today.  My first card is for the Scrappymom's New Arrival challenge.  It is a Easter card and there are so many Easter challenges, but I made another card for those.  I chose the bunny off New Arrivals.  I think it's so cute!  I used one of the new cute and cuddly PKS faces.  The card size is 5x5 and I did my favorite ribbon technique.  I'm really happy with the way it came out.  I hope you like it too!

Graduation cards: 3 of 3 post

Hello again, 
I have my last set of graduation cards to post tonight.  I think I saved some of my favorites for last.  I hope you are somewhat inspired by the cards, it's time to get started.  


Happy Birthday!

Hello all, 
I wanted to share a cute little card I made with my daughter.  As some of you know my daughter stands over my shoulder every time I make a card.  She kept asking me when are we going to make another Hello Kitty card.  I finally gave in and I think it turned out really cute.  She picked out all the paper and colors.  I used the imagine to color fill Hello Kitty.  The balloon strings cut to thin so I cut them off and added twine.  I think it looks better anyways.  I embossed the back ground with the cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder.  I hope you like my daughters card!

That's Cool!

Hello all, 
I just want to thank all my new followers.  I'm so glad you are coming on this card making journey with me.  I will get around to all the blogs of my new followers.  I have been a little stressed lately.  
I have two cards tonight (at the last minute) for one challenge. MAG you are to use Doodlecharms page 110.  I have not played in awhile. I'm happy to be playing again. Each card is so different, the first one I used the shapes from the page.  I thought about a snow cone.  I just took my children to Disney on Ice and they had snow cones.  The sentiment is from Joy's Life "Lot's of Puns" set you can find it here.  The second card is just using the hats off the page.  I really like them both and I hope that you do too!

Fish you were here

Hello all, 
I want to say thank you to my new followers.  I'm so glad you are coming on this journey with me.  I have been a little down lately, so I haven't' made many cards.  I did make one card for a challenge. I wanted to show case one of Joy's Life new stamp sets called Wild Life Puns.  Joy is coming out with another set very soon called Burnyard Puns.  I'm sure that there is a lot of use for that set with the Country Life cart. You can pre-order here.  
Anyway the challenge is CCCC to use the From my Kitchen cart.  I choose the fish to use and a fun pun from Joy's Life.  I think the card is cool, my son said I should have added some other colors like blue...Oh well.  I hope you like my card.

Looking a little Melted!

Hello all, 
I have 2 cards for 3 challenges.  It's April Fools day so I had to make some funny cards.  The challenges are for funny cards.  I think that bought these cards are funny.  First: More than Favors  Second: Card Cupid Third: Cooking with Cricut 
I just love the sentiments on them.  The sentiments are from two different companies. On the ice cream card I used glossy accents to make the ice cream look melty the stamp is from Clear Dollars. The Bunny card I used Skipping Stone for the saying.
