Gift Card Holder

My cousin has a birthday coming up and I couldn't help but get her a present that might help her get her Cricut collection a little bigger!  I have been dying to try a new way to do a gift card holder.  I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, Simply Sweet, Sweet Treats and Create a Critter.  The envelope was a "tag packet" from TBBM which I welded another tag to it to make it the shape that I liked better.  I cut the bird, the "Happy Birthday" and the grass from Create a Critter and the envelope flower was from Sweet Treats, and the name is from Simply Sweet.  I have really loved how this turned out and cannot wait to make some more.  Thanks so much for visiting!!

My Creative Time Challenge - Old School

I was so excited to be able to join Emma at for another of her exciting Throwback Thursday Challenges.  This week, she challenged us to not use our Cricuts!  I was pretty excited about that, because for many, many years, all I had was brass embossing templates.  It was so fun to break those out and use them for her challenge.  I really miss doing embossing, but since the Cuttlebug and Cricut, most of my old hobbies have taken a back seat to my ever changing skills.  Thank you Emma, for hosting another great challenge!  Be sure to visit her website to see all the other  "old school" entries!

Thanks for visiting!!

Roar Like a Lion...

My big brother and his darling wife are expecting their first baby any day now!  They have the most darling nursery for him and wanted to add one more element of decor for him.  My dad always told us kids when we were growing up to "Roar like a lion!" anytime we were scared.  This was what they wanted to do with vinyl for their nursery.  I was happy to do it for them!  Sadly though, I only cut the vinyl and my husband did everything else!  Isn't he amazing!?  He truly is such a talented person and can make anything look like a million bucks!  I cannot wait to see it in the baby's nursery and I am just so proud that my husband could take the time to make this extra special for my cute brother.
