Today I am sharing a card that I made for one of my co-workers that recently announced her resignation, she has a new job.  The inspiration for this card came from one of the free project flyers that I picked up at JoAnns.  The paper used on the card came from a Crate Paper paper pad that I picked up from Tuesday Morning on clearance last Spring.  The bird and cage are cuts from the cricut  Serenade cartridge,  the ribbon and bling from Recollections and a Sandylion Essentials flower.  I am so looking for some downtime so I can work on some LOs

Card Sharing

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!

Something to Celebrate

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!

Black Friday

Hello Friday and this is a first no shopping day for me, I really don't need anything so I am at home trying to finish up a few projects which brings me to what I am sharing today.  It's a TH tag that I created to include in care package to a very special person.  I just stenciled the tag using some distress ink and a stencil from The Crafters Workshop, added some glimmer mist and stamped one of my favorite sentiments..  Other stash items used included  the MS bird cage sticker, the wood veneer typewriter and ribbon.

Today's tag is being shared over at Scraps of Color for week #46 blog challenge Power of Words.

Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend.

Hello Monday

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.

Wednesday Wanderings

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!

Happy Thanksgiving

So much to be thankful for, I would never be able count all my blessings, just trying to complain less and live a life of gratitude and thankfulness.  We have less than two weeks before Thanksgiving so I decided to put together some really simple cards.  I sure hope I am able to finish them and get them in the mail.  This simple card was made using some paper scraps and a cut from the Thanksgiving cricut cartridge, I used some stickles on the stem.

Today's card is being submitted for the week #45 Give Thanks blog challenge over at Scraps of Color and  for the  HIMCR #174 Think Fall challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Take care and have a wonderful week.
