Wedding card

Here is a card I made for my cousin's wedding. It's another one of my simple cards. I made to look alot like their invitation, simple but elegant.
Most of the papers are from the scrap bag. The white ebmossed is from a paper pack I bought on clearance at Target earlier this year. I think the L came from Jasmine cricut cartridge.
Well there it is.... like I said, simple! : )

Thank you for looking, sorry I don't get to post more often but hopefully that will change soon!  Thanks again and God bless!

Finally got one done!!

 My Mom recently got re-married and I wanted to make them a little something to have to remember their day. I was going to do a double pager but since she doesn't scrap she wouldn't have an album to put it in, so I just done one page that can be framed and hung on the wall.
 I think she really liked it, least I hope so. I did really want to do more on it but thought it would be too busy so there's not alot of cricut on it. So hope you enjoy looking, thanks for stoppin by......
See not a real complex one, but I liked it.
Just love those little clips with the hearts!
I did take a couple of the hearts off the clips so I could use just the hearts.

Well thats all I have for now, thanks again for looking and hope you come back again. I hope to be posting a little more often. Have a wonderful blessed day!

This is a LO I worked on at a recent crop. I had some help with this one though. My sister glued it down and added some stickers to it, so I must give credit where credit is due. Thanks Tammy! I don't remember the papers or carts I used, sorry, I didn't write it all down this time. So here it is..........

Hope you like it. Think she will love it! She is due about any time now so have quite a few more pages to do for her, so need to get with it (lol). Thank you for stopping by today, God bless!

LO for my niece

Here is a layout I made for my niece, my sister and I are making her an album in secret.
I have to try to think of something on page 2 above the journal tag, may end up putting a monkey up there.
I used my I-rock for the lion's eyes.
I used some rub on's on the tag. The tag slides out 
from behind the picture mat. 

You can't really see it here but I put a drop of stickles in the eyes of the elephant.
That's all for now, thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day.

I used:
cardstock- coredinations and AC cardstock
designed paper- Nana's Kids DCWV
Font- Jasmine (shadow feature), "Limited Edition" from Cricut Sampler

Ribbons- from my sister
buttons and rub-on's

My Pink Stamper challenge card

Here is a card I made for the My Pink Stamper challenge. The challenge was to use orange, turquoise and green. All the paper was scraps, so not sure where they came from. Do know the striped paper is from DCWV Citrus stack. Hope this meets the criteria for the challenge and hope you like it!
The flower and vase are from Walk in my Garden cricut cartridge cut at 3". I used my i-rock to put a little bling on the vase.

I used swiss dots to emboss the striped paper.

Inside the card. This is a stamp I picked up at Michael's for $1.00. I am not the best stamper so is not perfect.Well thats all I have for today, thanks for stoppin by today. Have a wonderful day and God bless.

MIL Birthday card

I put this card together today for my dear Mother-in-laws birthday on the 21 st of this month. She will be 88 years young. So Mary if you see this before her birthday please don't let her see it!  I think she will like it.

This is the first kind of card I have made like this, so it is far from perfect.
The inside is blank for now, need a sentiment stamp to put in there. I did use more cardstock to make a double mat for thr sentiment.

Here I used some little sticker jewles for a little bling!

Here I added a little ribbon to the bottom.  So not a real complicated card, but still cute.
The recipe:
Base: 6.5" x 11" plain cardstock
Designed paper: Totally Girl from My minds eye
Flower Purples: Coredinations (Neutrals?)
Yellow: AC Cardstock
Black: from a mat stack (glittered) (Christmas/DCWV?)
Ribbon: American Crafts

Thanks for looking today, hope you liked it. Have a wonderful day and God bless.

Baby shower card

Here is a card I put together for my neice's baby shower. I used mainly scraps along with a couple sheets of plain cardstock.
Its a pretty simple card. I thought the monkey was cute, and thats her theme. He was cut from the Paisley cricut cartridge.
Close up of the monkey's face. I used some stickles on the tassel on his hat.

Inside the card. Below you can see I also made an envelope to go with the card.

I used a Dew Drop ink pad to make "leaves" for the envelope. I used and ink pen to make the "veins" of the leaves.
Well thats all I have for today. The shower is saturday, so I hope she likes it! Thank you for looking today, please feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy reading your comments. Have a wonderful day, God bless!
