I created this card for my dad’s birthday. Making a masculine card was difficult for me and it took a while for me to contemplate what my color scheme would be. It’s so easy to put cute bows, critters, and glitter on a card. But, I wanted this to be a guy’s card. My dad is a Jeep fan and had several of them (me too). His current Jeep is the same color and a similar model as the one on this card. So, I stuck to the color of his Jeep plus black, white and gray. I think it turned out awesome. Surprised me =)
I’ve entered this card into My Sheri’s Craft Challenge #24 where we had to create a masculine card. Thanks Sheri for another great challenge.
Peachy Keen is having a “Friday Face Off” challenge where we have to create a container to hold treats and must use a PK face stamp. I was eating some candy corn and thought “hmmmm, I should make a candy corn box.” I used the cake box from the Tie the Knot cart and made it my candy corn. I love it when I can take a cut from one of the cartridges and use it for something it wasn’t meant for.

Yay!!! I won a set of Peachy Keen stamps on the Fall Blog Hop hosted by September Nineth! I’ve been wanting a set of these for quite some time now. They came in the mail yesterday and I love, love, love them. Thanks so much Ruthie for the awesome prize! I created a project with these stamps today. Once it is done uploading to YouTube, I’ll share it with everyone.
My very first slider card. Thanks to Everyday Cricut on their demo on how to make a slider card. I’m entering this one into Emma’s Throwback Thursday Challenge. The challenge was to create a card not using a machine i.e. no Cricut, no Cuttlebug, no computer. Wow was that tough! I will try to make a video of this card tomorrow and post it sometime next week.

Here is a cute birthday card I did for one of my daughter’s friends. Her favorite animal is a cow and her nick name is Mary Moo Cow. So, putting a cow on it was a must. I couldn’t resit to bling out his nose. lol. The light pink paper is open card stock that I Cuttlebuged. The cow I created using Make The Cut. This was the first cut file I made. Not too shabby.
My hubby made me an embellishment center today. I just love it!! He custom built it so that it would fit the space and my embellishments. I need to paint it white yet. But, I was so excited to get it hung on the wall and filled with my crafting goodies.
My hubby made the other shelves too. Isn’t he great !
