Snowman Card

I made this card from patterned paper with glitter :) to resemble using an Imagine since I do not own the Imagine. ;)  I still wanted to participate in Emma's (  Imagine Nation Mondays Challenge using buttons this week. ;) I'm sorry but I can't remember what paper pack this paper is from.  (I think it was last year's DCW Holiday Pack, but I could be wrong).  The snowman is a sticker bought at Michael's and the Sentiment was printed on the computer.  I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the red and green layers.

Cupcake Birthday Cards- Thursday's Throwback Challenge

I made these two cards for my nieces, Cheyenne and Savannah.  Their birthday party is next month in December but it popped into my head when Emma at  challenged us to make a card incorporating some sort of food.  What is better than a cupcake on your birthday, right?  Cheyenne will be turning 4 and Savannah will be turning 1.  Their birthdays are only three days apart.  Can you believe it?  You can tell when their parents are getting busy..heheh. Just kidding.  I hope I didn't offend anyone.  I am in a silly mood this evening. :)
I seriously love these challenges.  I have never had more fun creating things and sharing them.  Even though I have never won any challenge I've entered, I am enjoying every minute of creating.  So blessed to be off track this month to really get into this month!  Loving it!  Anyway, I'll quit rambling on now.....enjoy my cards. 
Oh, I almost forgot.  I used the Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge to make the shape of the cupcake card and the cherries.  The 1st and 4th numbers and letters were cut using the Tear Drop Cartridge.    The Happy Birthday Stamp is from  And the cute little cherry faces are of course from Peachy Keen's Stamps Everyday Character Face Assortment.  The beautiful green jewels are from the $1 bin at Michaels and I also used Pink Stickles I purchased at Michaels.

MOJO163 Challenge

I decided to  make my mom a Thanksgiving Card with this weeks Mojo Monday Challenge.  We are so very thankful for my mom in our lives and I really hope she likes this card.  The turkey is a little goofey looking, but other than that I am happy with the way it came out! :)

Christmas Theme Throwback Thursday

I made this Christmas card using the Christmas Cheer Cartridge.  I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the swirls on the background red paper.  I colored my snow man's features because none of the Peachy Keen Faces I have matched my snowman. :(  (I need to get the Snowman Face Asst.) hehehe  Then, I used some Christmas Ribbon I had from last year.  And last, but not least I finally got to use my Stampin' Up punch to cut out the title.  I hope I win this challenge!  I love entering every week.  It is so much fun to keep inspired by entering Emma's challenges every Thursday at !  I would never of been keeping up making up cards without these challenges to keep me motivated. :)

Baseball Birthday Tag

This is a birthday tag I made for my husbands birthday next month.  It follows the sports theme that Emma requested for her Thursday Throwback Challenge over at .I didn't have any sports cartridges, so I went with a baseball (Dodger Blue of course. hehehe)  and used the STREET SIGN cartridge to do the letters and the George Basic Shapes Cartridge to do the circle shape of the card and for the mini-balls.  Then I used the Peachy Keen EveryDay Face Asst. Stamps for the cute little faces on the mini-balls.  Of course I will use ribbon to attach it to his present as the tag. :)  Last, but not least I stickled it up to add a little bling!  I am also going to enter this tag into Peachy Keen's Challenge ( )to make something related to a gift. :)

Pig Tag

In honor of my son and I running into a pig this past week during an afternoon walk, I decided to make a pig tag to attach to a gift sometime.  Can  you beleive we ran into a pig on our street in our neighborhood.  Life really is funny!  It is an animal themed project so it qualifies for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge over at  This card/tag was made using the Animal Kingdom Cartridge since I do not own the Paper Doll Cartridge Emma requested.

I Eat Sight Word Book





This book was made for a very special little girl for her 2nd Birthday.  It was made to help her learn the sight words I and eat.  I am also entering it into the cricutcardz challenge #45.  The only requirements were to make it a fall theme and to use a Peachy Keen Face Stamp.  Hence, I used apples and candy corn to symbolize fall and the Peachy Keen, Cutie Pie Face Asst. for the apple. :)

Turkey Thursday Throw Back Challenge

This card was created for Emma's Thursday Throwback Challenge.  I used Create a Critter Cartridge.

Throw Back Thursday Challenge: September 24, 2010--No Cricut....

Okay, girls.....this time the challenge was to not use our cricut.  OUCH!!! I am addicted to that thing. :)  The only other requirement Emma set was to use patterned paper.  So my creation is a beautiful patterned paper with flowers on it.  Then, I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the paper I used as a mat (orange).  After that, I used the cuttlebug to emboss the zigzag on the yellow cardstock.  Anyway, it was fun as usual. :)

Girly Birthday Card

This is a birthdy card I made that was so much fun to make. :)

BOO Board Book

After many attempts, I finally completed the Boo Book I started.  I copied the entire idea off of Emma over at My Creative Time.  It was not easy figuring out how to cut chip board with my cricut.  However, with  much instruction from Emma (She is always so helpful, I just love her!), I finally finished it and gave to my BESTIE! :)  Hope you like it!

Throwback Thursday- Scarecrow Card

After a long, really hard day, I decided to come home and do one of my favorite things.  Paper Play.  I made a scarecrow card to say thank you.  I did it and want to enter it into Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge.  You can enter too.  Just go to .  Emma is great, you will love watching her videos.  She always inspires me!  Her only requirement was to use an old cartridge.  I didn't exactly stick to that.  I used the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cartridge to make the scarcrow, pumpkin, and harvest letters.  It was so much fun!  Such good therapy after a rough day! :)  Then, I used my Peachy Keen Stamp Set, Cutie Pie Faces.  I just love those little faces! :)  The paper is from a DCW Paper Pack.  I hope enjoy my card.
