Good morning all and happy Sunday to all!!  I hope the sun comes out today, was dreary all day yesterday and poured all night.  I need the sun to dry the grass so I can mow it before a need to hire some sheep or

I put together a bunch of cards yesterday, had to make up for lost time.  I found some single pieces of 6x6 papers, not sure what they are from, but were so pretty, I needed to use them up.  One of my favorite cards are the Easel cards, so I took out my trusty Art Philosophy cartridge and cut out the butterfly, flower and sentiment layers.  If you do not have this cartridge yet, you need to get it. You will find that you will get a LOT of use out of it.  It comes with 3 coordinating stamp sets, and 3 sheets of chpboard coordinating pieces, all for $99.00 and you are in luck, I am a consultant for Close To My Heart and you can go to my link below and place your order for it through me :)))

I of course added some bling and some flowers I got from a friend, and some ribbon.  

I hope you like how my card turned out, I love the colors and print!!  Please come back again!!

Have a GREAT Sunday

finally made a few cards!!


Hello everyone, long time no hear from me.  I have not really felt that good for about 6 weeks now, I had a bad stomache virus that wiped me out and then a respiratory infection, and then recently, I had a front tooth shatter on me and so i had to have the rest of it pulled (sniffeling) because there was an infection. still batteling the infection and pain that started after I had the tooth pulled.  Still have pain up in the gums, hoping it goes away quickly, I run out of antibiotics on Monday.  Well enough about me.  I got the Cricut Campin Critters cartridge today and had fun making a couple of cards...Finally.

I also got the wood grain embossing folder by Darice..Love it.

I had fun with the new cartridge. Should be able to make some masculone cards with it I think.
Hope you like the cards I made with it.
I entered this card in the Craftin Desert Divas challenge here
