The challenge was to make a card, scrapbook page or other Cricut project using your favorite Cricut cartridge, and the colors turquoise, green, brown and orange, with an additional color of your choice.

I was so excited that I could enter for this amazing opportunity.  I wish all of the applicants the best of luck and be sure to visit to check out all of the DT entries!

My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends!

Emma's challenge was to use Wildcard and some kind of embossing for her Throwback Thursday Challenge.  I have been feeling less than inspired these days, and thought I'd rummage through the handbook for Wildcard.  WOW!  I love it.  It has so many things to cut and make your own, but I was especially excited about the box toward the end of the book.  Oh My Gosh!  I didn't even know it was in there, and I couldn't wait to cut it.  I needed a box for a friend's birthday, so I was so happy that I found it!

On the "Cute Friend" label I wet embossed the stamp, as well as ran the black frame through my Cuttlebug.  The background on the envelope as well as the card was embossed with the Cuttlebug and the gifts were too!  I just love embossing.

Thank you Emma for hosting another one of your amazing challenges.  Be sure to visit to see all the beautiful entries!

Thank you for visiting!

Peachy Shower

Hi Crafty Friends! 

I have been trying to get this post up since we had this shower in March...  YIKES!  My computer has been having issues, but I think they have been worked out, so I can finally show you these extra cute invitations my SIL, MIL and I made for our cousin who had a baby girl named Jorja.  (When we offered to do the shower, the first and only thing that popped into my head was "Georgia Peach" and we ran with it!) 

The peach is from Preserves and that super cute face is the biggest size on the "Dolly Dumplins Assortment".  (My favorite!)   We made 42 of them and nearly every guest came that was invited.  It was a huge turnout! 

Thanks for visiting!!

Father'sDay Card and Tag

I feel so bad that Father's Day was a while ago but I haven't had Internet for almost 2 weeks and it's finally up, so I thought I would post my card I made for my father-in-law and my Dad's tag.  I really liked my Father's Day stuff this year.  Thanks for visiting!!

 This my first attempt at using burlap... I'm in LOVE!  It's certainly messy, but so worth it!!

My dad loves snacks of any kind, but especially nuts.  We decided to do a little basket with snacks in it for him.  I completely loved this tag and my 5 year old was giddy that her "peanut" was jumping!  Hee Hee.  Thanks to my Peachy Faces for making those nuts a new fave!!
