It has been sometime since I shared on my blog but I pushed myself today to get some cards ready to go postal this week. Today I am sharing a card that I am sending to a child that has cancer and has requested handmade cards. Several requests for cards have been shared on facebook and posted as challenges on other blogs.
I used an embossing folder for the sentiment, the echo park deer came from the SIL store and was cut with the cameo, a layer of snow, added some stickles and stars and the card was complete. I am sharing this for week #48 anything goes blog challenge over at Scraps of Color, I have just one more project to post and I will have participated in this challenge for the entire year!

Hello Sunday and welcome to another week to celebrate gratitude! Today's post is an annivsary card that will be going postal within the next few days to one of my friends. I didn't have a plan or a sketch when I started this car I just pulled out some paper scraps from my stash. I also wanted to use the cartridge Something to Celebrate that I won from Cricutbarista over at A Cart a Week she is a talented crafter and her blog is full of inspiration. The love birds were cut from the cartridge at 2 1/2 and popped on a mat that was embossed with a Paper Studio heart folder. I like how the competed card looks, after all it is the thought that counts.
I am sharing this card for this week's #176 Freestyle challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.
Have a great week, if you see someone without a smile remember to give them one of yours!

Today I wanted to do a quick post sharing some Thanksgiving cards that I put together yesterday after seeing this post over at Scraps of Color Espire. They may be simple but they came together rather quickly since I needed to finish up my cards so they could go postal today. Yesterday was cloudy so this was the best picture I could get using my cell phone since I was in a hurry. All items used have been in my stask for a while with the exception of the pattern paper used on the card to the right which I purchased from HL earlier this month!
Take care and have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving.

Hello and Happy Wednesday, welcome to another edition of my Wednesday Wanderings.
I'm back today to share a card that I made using a video tutorial shared by Joy from Obsessed With Scrapbooking. The link goes to her blog not the specific card because she has several on her blog using the CTMH Artiste cartridge. The picture doesn't really do the card justice as I think it looks better in person and I will certainly be making more of these cards. My scrappy friend Felisa from The Scrapin Diva is the enabler that introduced me to the Sizziz Card Frame Dies, after I went out and bought one she then told me I could make them with my cricut and that's when she pointed me to Joy's video. So there you have the story behind the making of the swing card using the cricut, I will share the card I made using the sizzix dies once I finish it.
Take care and try to stay warm because it is so cold outside!
