Princess Wagon!

Happy Sunday!!!
Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!
I want to share a little Princess themed "basket" I did for a little girl who just turned one.
Her party was Princess themed and they LOVE Disney so I thought Disney Princesses were perfect!
They are sitting in a wagon that came with some little people sized sand toys.

The princess were cut from the Happily Ever After and Dreams Come True cartridges. I don't remember which cam from where. But there were 3 from! I jazzed them up a little with adhesive gems and stickles!
Thanks for stopping by!

St. Patty's Day Lunch Box - Scrappy Frogs Challenge

Hi everyone!
It's time for another Challenge from the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog. This time our team leader Mindy challenged us, to Challenge our self. We were to do a project that we don't normally outside our comfort zone.
Well, being that I RARELY alter items, I decided to alter a little lunch box. I ran out and bought a bunch of these back before Christmas when I saw that "Okie" from the Cricut message board was altering these. She does such fab work...I wanted to give it a try. Well, needless to say, I never got around to it so I figured it was a good time to try! Okie has a cut file on her blog to cut the pieces to cover it. Then you just have to decorate! Easy peasy. Find the cut file here.

The paper was single sheets from Hobby Lobby. The little shamrocks are foam that were in a package. The ribbon was also from Hobby Lobby! The adorable little owl is a Digi stamp from Pink Cat Studio. They have the most adorable images over there. I colored him with my Bic markers. No Copics yet. :( He is cut out using Nesties. I doodled a little here and there!

Thanks for checking it out.
Why don't you Challenge Yourself and hop on over and join us. Click here.
Have a great rest of the weekend!

Happy Birthday Sadie!

Hi there,
I wanted to share a card I made for my neighbor's pooch. Our dogs are both around the same age and they play constantly in the summer months. Well Sadie just turned two today so of course I had to make her a card.

I used Paper Pups for the pup and the balloon. I cut the string off the balloon and added wire instead as the "string". To spruce her up a bit I added some pink adhesive gems and a googly eye. The back white layer was embossed with swiss dots.

Thanks for checking it out!

Happy Birthday Sadie!!

Hang in there

Hi there,

I wanted to share a card I put together last week for my hubby's uncle who was having some back troubles. He had to get a round of shots in his back to help alleviate some pain.

He is doing much better that was GREAT news.

The sketch was last weeks MoJo Monday. I LOVE their sketches!

The stamp is a House Mouse colored with Prisma pencils. I mounted them on some scalloped circles cut with Nesties. I embossed the blue layers with the Swiss Dots folder and the Herringbone folder. Hang in there is a stamp from Stampendous and cut out with a Nesti.

Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!!!

Feel better soon!

Hi there,
I am on a roll with my posting....feels good :)
I wanted to share a card I made for my hubby's cousin that had to have surgery today. She is doing well and can go home this weekend. We are so relieved!
Her favorite color is light blue so I wanted to go with a blue themed card.
Anyway, here is the card I made her....

That adorable little bear is a digi stamp from KLMdigi stamps. I just fell in love with him. I colored him with my Prismas and added a little tiny bow on the blanket to give it a little oomph. The paper is from a Boy stack at Hobby Lobby. I can't remember the actual company. The flowers are Prima. The little photo corners were punched from an EKsuccess punch then I added a few adhesive gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sta - we love you and are glad you are doing well! :)

Mardi Gras!

Hi there,
Did everyone have a fun Fat Tuesday otherwise known as Mardi Gras!
I'm sure the folks down in Louisiana had a blast celebrating. Plus, the Saints winning the Super Bowl...wooohooo!
I wanted to share a Mardi Gras themed basket I did for a party at the Senior Center.

I cut the state of Louisiana from 50 States and the Fleur de Luis came from Sweethearts. I cut the crown from the Paisley cart and the balloon came from Celebrations. The masks and Mardi Gras are cut from SVG's I found at the Paper Yoga blog. Click here. The beads came from a cut file created with George and Basic Shapes that I found at the Fun 2 Cricut website. Click here.
Thanks ladies for sharing your cut files!
Thanks everyone else for stopping by!
Have a good one!

Happy Thoughts & MoJo Monday

I'm just about out of my mind with all this snow now! I can't take!
Hope the rest of you are surviving this VERY long winter.
I wanted to share a card I made for a cousin of DH and I, she is having surgery on Thursday. I wanted to send her a "pre-thinking" of you card before she goes.

The layout is this weeks MoJo Monday! Click on the link in my sidebar to check out the sketch and give it a try yourself! Awesome stuff! The paper is from the new DCWV Mariposa stack. Oh how pretty those papers are...lots and lots of butterflies!!! The lacy border punch in a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is a stamp but I have no idea who's it is. The butterfly is cut from a Spellbinder die. I sprinkled adhesive pearls all over the card.

Thanks so much for checking it out!

Sta- We're thinking of you and love ya!!!

Froggy Valentine

Hi there,
Hope everyone is ready for the weekend!
I wanted to share a valentine that I made for my niece. She is all about green. Loves it! So I wanted to create a Valentine that had a little green in it.

The paper is some I had left over from last year so I'm not sure who's it is. The frog was cut from the Paisley cartridge and he's mounted on some scalloped circles cut from Nesties. I gave him some googly eyes and I stickled the heart on his chest. The sketch is an older MoJo monday sketch but I can't remember the date...sorry :(

Have a great weekend!
