Under the Sea

So sorry I haven't posted for a couple of weeks, been working alot, so I have not had much time to make any cards :(.  Found a few hours the other day and thought I would make a few to post.  With the end of summer I got quite sad that I would not be going to the beach as often so this was my therapy..LOL...Hope you enjoy. I am also listing the Sealed With a Kiss Card in the Sept. Challenge. I encourage everyone to join in it is a blast.

                                   This was made using the cricut cartridge "Lifes a Beach".

                             This was made using the cricut lite cartridge "Bump in the Night".

                 This was made using the cricut cartridge "Create a Critter" and I flocked the Seal.

This was made using the cricut cartridge "Create a Critter" and two different embossing folders. On the seahorse I used a Cuttlebug folder "Mesh Texture" and the blue square I used a Darcie folder "Swirls".

What little boys are made of........

     How is everyone doing I have been inspired so much lately from everyone on the web with there beautiful cards,  that I thought  would try some Boy cards and hopefully inspire some of you.  I just got the Cricut Lite Cartridge B is for Boy when Wal-Mart decided to stop carrying them and they went on sale, so that was the start of the Boy cards to follow, although not all of the cards I made were from that cartridge it was what got me started with the Boy theme.  I hope as always the you enjoy them.
Loads Of Fun
 This card was made using the Cricut Lite "B is for Boy" Cartridge.
I Robot
 This card was made using the Cricut Lite "B is for Boy" Cartridge.

The Eyes Have It

     I thank you for all your kind comments and your continued support, if you want to see more of the boy cards that I made this week you can go check out my YouTube video here.

Pink Power

This is for the challenge over at "A Pink Paper Digi Delight"I am not the best with markers but this was such a cute stamp and with the USA girls soccer team bringing home the gold I just could not resist.

This card was made using the Free Digi for Friday - Go Girl's Soccer,
 from the ScrapHappy Paper Crafter. The paper came out of the scrap drawer,
I used a inkadinkado stamp for the sentiment and flag.
I used Spellbinders Classic Large Ovals and Scalloped Ovals for the main image.

Once again thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Bugg'in OUT

    Hey guys so I am so excited to show you the cutest bug cards I have ever made.  The Cricut Chirp Challenge # 3 "A Buzzing Bug Bow"  inspired me, so I thought I would give it a try. Please stop by and join in the challenge also at it is so much fun.  There are three cards so I am tryig to decide which one to put into the challenge but I have not made up my mind yet. It is also back to school time around her, my son is grown now but all the nieghbors are getting theit little ones ready so hopefully some of you moms out there will have a little more time to yourself and maybe a chance to cricut,,,, wouldn't that be great.

Here are the cards.
 This was made using Cricut cartridge "Straight from the Nest".
The scalloped circles were done with Spellbinders Nestabilities "Classic Scalloped Circles Large".
 The embossing folder used for the back is a Darice folder "Dot".

 This card was made using Cricut cartridge "Walk in My Garden".
 The circles were done using Spellbinders Nestibilities "Standard Circles Large".
  I used a Sizzix "Tim Holtz Alterations" embossing folder "Woodgrain"
 for the texture on the middle piece.

 This card was made using Cricut cartridge "Stretch your Imagination".
 The two embossing folders used were both Cuttlebug folders the one the cricket is on is "Bird Call" the large background came in a group of folders, sorry don't know the name.

As always thanks for taking the time to stop by and please feel free to leave a comment.

     How is everyone doing?  Got back Monday and have been working on some Cowboy Cards.  I used the Old West Cartridge and DCWV "All About Boys" Paper. It is always a challenge for me to come up with masculine type cards and I have a few birthdays coming up real soon so this is my attempt. As you can see I love to add texture and bling to my cards, and I am not afraid to ink something up. I want to thank everyone that takes the time to stop by, I hope you get some ideas.

     Hope everyone is having a great week, I have been working all week, and I am getting ready for a trip so not much time for card making but I just had too get this one in for the challenges over at CWC #95 (Buttons & Brads) and  July #2 (To Sweet To Eat). I have so much fun with these challenges and the inspiration at both sites from the DT's and everyone that enters is amazing so if you get a chance I encourage everyone to check these blogs out. I also hope to enter a few more challenges at different sites in the weeks to come so stay tuned.

This was cut out using the Sweet Treats Cartridge. The patterned paper came from DCWV Nana's Nursery "Baby Boy" and the I used two cuttlebug folders to add texture. I used stickels on the top layer. The blue background piece was cut with sizzix framelits. And a button for my cherry on top.

Summer Fun "Scuba Steve"

     So I made a card for challenge #111 and I think I might enter it as well at challenge as well I think it meets criteria, but let me tell you I must be crazy, the pieces to this card our so small that my eyes are now crossed. Oh well, I think it turned out pretty cute anyway.

   The cartridges I used for this one was, "Lifes a Beach", and for the sun "Everyday Paper Dolls". I used the Cuttlebug Folder Divine Swirl for texture on the water, and some really cute fish brads I had gotten at Micheals. By the way all my cards are A2 sized cards unless I otherwise note.

Sunny Days

     Let me start out by welcoming my followers, thank you so much for your support. I also would like to thank everyone for your kind comments on the blog.

     These two cards are for the challenge over at "A Smiling Sparkling Sun" and the July OWH challenge.  I hope you enjoy them and hopefully get a little inspiration from them.  If I can find the time I will get another one up for the "A Smiling Sparkling Sun" that I can also enter in the challenge over at Please feel free to leave comments and take ideas, that is what this blog is all about.  Enjoy the rest of your week.

 This card was made using the cricut cartridges "Everyday Paper Dolls" for the dog,  "Country Life" for the landscape. I used the cricut craft room and cut the dog out three times using the hide, contour button on the bottom layer taking out all the detail marks, and cut the head off for the top layer to give him dimension. I also used the hide, contour button on the top layer of the landscape. For some texture I used the Sizzix embossing folder "Plaid" on the very back green layer. I just loved the expression on the dogs face he looks so happy with himself, reminds me of my little dog "tiger" he is a Shitzu we got from a rescue group that is our "little sunshine".

     I just love this little stamp, I will find out exactly what company it is made by and let you know. I did stamp the image twice just so I could cut out his nose for dimension. and colored hem using the Gamsol tech. along with a pink SU marker for the udder. This card makes me smile I hope it has the same effect on you.  I am sending out a package today or tomorrow for OWH with about 75 cards in it and I made this card in multiples just because I thought it was so darn cute.  I would encourage everyone to visit the OWH site and get involved.

Christmas in July

Mary over at Cardz TV is having a Christmas in July Card Challenge, the only rule was that it must be an animal and a Christmas Theme these are my entries.
Although this is the first challenge that I have ever done it will not be my last, I had an absolute blast putting these two cards together while the mecury outside reached almost 100 degrees. 

This card was made Cricut Lite Cartridge "Hoot'n Holler".

This card was made with 2 different Cartridges,
 Cricut Lite "Four Legged Friends" & Joys of the Season.
