Happy Birthday

Hello my creative friends!  I made this cute little birthday card with My Creative Times Tag Die Layers.  The Happy B-Day letters were part of the dies in that set.  I stickled them all up! :)  The flower embossing folder was a gift from my sweet friend, Jessica Flynn!  Thank you Jessica!!!  I love it.  Then I tried a new technique I learned from my friend, Jo Ralph, putting ink on top of the embossed parts of the card with my finger dabber.  I think it turned out soooo cute for being such a simple card!  I love it!!!  I placed it on top of my sweet little friends birthday present!  Super cute! :)  Happy Crafting, my friends!

Window Shaker Cards

Hello My Creative Friends!  Okay, so I was sooo inspired by Emma at My Creative Time (  that I made all my team members an end of the year card to tell them how much I love and appreciate them!  I used our School Mascot Grizzly bear that I cut out really tiny using my Silhouette Machine.  I just love that machine!!!!  Then I used all the ideas from My Creative Time on how to put the window shaker card together.  All stamps and dies used were from My Creative Time.   (Sorry, I forgot to write down the exact names of the sets I used).  The hats were made by my Bestie, Melissa Mapes.  She does shirts and hats!  E-mail me if you want her contact info!  I just love, love, love her work!!!! :)  Super cute, personalized gifts!!!!  $25 a hat!  So impressed with this end of the year appreciation gift to  my third grade team members!  I love them even more! :)

MCT Designer Challenge

Hello My Creative Friends!
I made two cards for this challenge! :)  I was so inspired by the colors and picture, and sample card.  Hehehe  And besides, I have my anniversary coming up in a few days and Father's Day in just a few short weeks. :)  I used the following products:
1.  MCT Heart die
2.  MCT You're Brilliant Die and Stamp Set
3.  MCT Teeny Tag Greetings.

On the second Card I used:
1.  Story book Cricut Cartridge for Letters
2.  MCT Coffee Break Stamp Set for background embossed

I really love making these little window shaker cards.  I think they are soooo neat to play with!!! :)They are a little tricky for me to make.  But thanks to Emma at  I am able to watch the tutorial video over and over to make it happen.  Super cute!!!  I just love how it came out.  I put a lighthouse as the under pic since my husband just loves light houses and it fit the the theme of the challenge!  Happy Crafting! :)
