Wow, I actually got in two cards today =) This one was created specially for MoMo’s Tuesday Challenge. She challenged us to make a card with a princess theme. I decided to make a princess of the flowers and named her Princess Flora. The princess is from the Simply Charmed cartridge — what a super cute cartridge. This is the first cut I made from it but I can see myself using this one often! Using my Gypsy, I created a shaped card using the weld feature. I use a sheer fabric on the dress and my absolute favorite stamps – Peachy Keen — for the face. Hope you enjoy!

Hi everyone! Hope you all are staying nice an warm. We got hit by a big snow storm today which cancelled school for my girls. So, we decided to make a card this evening. My daughter just loves cupcakes so that was the basis of our card. I like this one so much that I’m entering it into two contests (1) Peachy Keen Lets Face it Fridays where we have to make a thank you card with a PK face stamp and (2) Pink by Design Team challenge where we had to make a card with a stamp sentiment for a chance to be part of Sara’s design team. How exciting!!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day. I had a great time with my youngest daughter today. We shopped at Michaels, then she had 3 hours of gymnastic practice, then we at lunch, then she had a 1 hour gymnastic private lesson, then we did more shopping.
Thought I’d share with you my finds from this week. This was a big week for me for Cricut cartridges. As you probably have heard, Michaels has their clearance Circut cartridges marked down to $9.99 today. Wow, I’ve never seen such low prices — not even on eBay. I was able to pick up 6 new cartridges there. They are the bottom 6 on the picture below. This week, I also receive my CricutMachine.com order. They had cartridges on sale for $14.95. I got Simply Charmed and Forever Young. Also, my free Sampler cartridge arrived from CricutMachine. There was a mixup with the Post Office and they shipped my cartridge back with an address not found. CricutMachine was so nice and mailed it back to us! My final cartridges were eBay wins. Yes, I got more Imagine cartridges and I don’t even have one yet..lol. I’m still waiting for them to go on sale at HSN for $399 so I can use my 15% coupon — but it’s really hard waiting. I won the Best Friends cartridge for $10.50 (awesome) and the Nursery Tails for $13.
Lastly, I stopped at JoAnns earlier this week and picked up a few items on clearance. The cardstock was less than $2; the two DCWV glitter mini stacks were $2.99 each and the bell trim was $1 (marked down from $10). Cannot wait to use the bells on a card.
Thanks for stopping by.
