Fishing Birthday Card!!

Hey Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing good today!! So on Sunday was my nephew's 9th birthday. He wanted a fishing theme birthday, so I decided to go with that theme for the card. So I recently got the Teddy Bear Parade cricut cartridge and it had a cute little fisherman bear. I loved it and thought how perfect it would be to create a fisherman bear. So I wasn't feeling the eyes that they do on the cartridge. It's too plain for my tastes so I created my own eyes. I did the card colors in green, brown and a light  khaki color. I inked it up in shades of brown as well. The bottom edge I used a Martha Stewart Scallop dot punch that I just bought. I tied a piece of string around the top of the pole to give it that realistic look. I hope you enjoy the card!! Thanks for taking the time to view my blog!!

Dragonfly Birthday Card!!

Hey Everyone,

I hope everyone is having a great day today. I didn't get the oppourtunity to get this posted yesterday but as promised I'm showing you it today. So my soon to be sister in law's birthday was June 26th but we weren't able to celebrate it till Forth of July. I smoked some ribs, chicken and corn on the cob and I made a mud pie cheesecake. I was nervous on how it would turn out because it was an experiment. Haha. I've never made it before. One of my desserts I always make for the holidays is a mud pie and EVERYONE tears it up. Well my sister in law loves cheesecake so I thought why not combine the two and see what happens. It turned out really good! I liked it. 
So my sister in law likes Dragonflys so I decided to make her a card with a dragonfly on it. I started out with a standard A2 card and cut a dark pink out in that size. I cut the orange out slightly smaller and then used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch along the top and bottom. I tied a coordinating ribbon in the center.  Then cut out another lighter pink square and swiss dotted and inked it. I cut the Happy Birthday using the Birthday Cakes Cricut Cartridge and added a little swarvoski crystal bling to the i. Then I cut the cute little dragonfly using the Create a Critter Cartridge. I popped it up with some pop dots. I hope you enjoyed the card!! Thanks for taking the time to view my blog!

Father's Day Card!!

Hey Everybody,

How is it going in your lives today?? I hope you are all having a fantastic day, if not I hope that it gets better for you! Well I want to appologize for being gone so long and not posting anything. : ( I've missed you guys!! I'll give you an update on what's been going on in my life. In a previous post I put that my parents had both went to the hospital at the end of May for two separate things. Took about a week for both of them to recover and get back to their normal selves. Then I got busy with some summer things and then before you knew it, it was Father's Day.

So I hadn't had the oppourtunity to work on anything till I made my Dad this Father's Day Card. I really missed getting crafty. I've been learning over the past few weeks just how much I love getting crafty and creative using my imagination.

So for the card I wanted to use shades of brown and green because my Dad's a hunter and loves Deer. I used a standard A2 card and then cut out some squares for the background. For the green part I embossed it with an argyle folder and just chalked the edges in brown. Then I cut a square and turned it and chalked the edges brown. I put a brown strip in the center and chalked it brown too. I pop dotted the diamond with the deer.  I used the Disney Classics cartridge and cut out a silhoutte of Bambi's Dad. Then to finish it off I added some brown buttons to the edges.

Well I hoped you enjoyed this card!! I will post another cute card tomorrow!! : ) Thanks for taking the time to view my blog.
