Martini's

Hello all, 
I was able to get a card in today after cleaning and painting.  I hope I get all this painting done before we have to move in and the carpet gets put down.  Cross your fingers for me!  
Today's card is for the challenge over at the pink by design community.  The challenge is a cricutless challenge.  I love my cricut but I can make many cards with out it.  I love making drink cards and the cute stamp set Cocktails by PBD is just prefect.  The sentiment is done on my computer.  The card was really quick to make, I just love how it came out.

Awesome Dude

Hello all, 
Today is design team Thursday, I'm late at posting (again) because of painting(again)...LOL This week we were to make something related to cooling off.  I used the surf guy from Luau, the sentiment is from Joy's Life set Fathers and Sons.  Great set to have right now for Father's day.  I did a sponged background.  The card was very simple to make.  I hope you like the card.  Also I will do a tutorial on the sponged background and ribbon technique in a few weeks.  Go check out all the design teams great projects here

Hello all,
Here is a quick wallet card I made for the pink by design message board. This wallet was so easy to make.  Here is the link to the video I watched.  The sentiment is from PBD Our Father's set.  The pictures are of my three children Robert, Andre and Jai-Marie.  I hope the video helps you like it helped me.  

Chill-ax

Hello all, 


Welcome to BugBites first ever Bug Hop, Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop!  

To celebrate the beginning of summer, Barb over at BugBites is hosting two consecutive weekends of Bug Hops.
This weekend it is all about the Chillin’, June 4-6.
If you've come from visiting Jenn you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop, click HERE to start from the beginning.
Each designer along the bug trail is featuring a project based on the Chillin’ theme. What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at BugBites for a chance to win a Big Prize.
But, there’s a twist. Your project must included at least one Cricut cut and at least one of the critters that have been hidden within some of the bug stop blogs. Be sure to visit all the bug stops to find all your critter choices.
While you are looking for the critters, be sure to check out the blog candy that each designer has to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
Thanks for joining me in my very first blog/bug hop.  I'm so excited the line up is great.  The card I made is using my favorite sponged background technique.  I just love Summer cards for this very reason!  I used the umbrella from Life's a Beach, the fly is from Boys will be boys and the margarita glass is from Taylored Expressions.  I just love chillin with a Margarita.  It's my favorite cocktail! You know there is always a fly somewhere bugging you while you're chillin....LOL  I hope you like my card and the bug hop.  Oh, what is bug hop with out some candy.  I'm giving away one of Joy's new stamps sets "Everyday Occasions".  You need to leave a comment on this post and I will announce a winner on Monday.  
Blog Candy
Next stop...Britt. See what she has in store for you today.
Remember, once you have hopped to all the bug stops, it's your turn to show us your Chillin’ project.
Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project, include one of the hidden critters and link up your project over at BugBites by Midnight CST June 6 to be eligible for the big prize.

Herd you were ill

Hello all,
I have missed blogging so much the past two weeks.  I have been painting every day and still have 5 more rooms.  My post today is for Joy's Life design team Thursday.  I got this card done at the very last minute.  I really think it came out super cute.  I used Joy's new set BurnYard Puns, the set is super cute.  You should go over to Joy's and pick one up.  
I used scarps for the card.  The cow is from Create a Critter, I used two cows to flip one for the sad face.  The bandaid is from B is for Boys, the grass is a die from MFT.  I hope you like my card and go look at all the great projects the design team made using BurnYard Puns here.
Also stop by on Saturday for my first Blog/Bug hop.  I will have a super great giveaway!
