I started out making a hippo card, but ended up with a lamb--LOL! It's perfect for the Fantabulous Cricut Monday Challenge. Here's what I used:
Easter Cart for all lamb cuts -- 3 1/2 inches
MPS More Punny-licious stamp
Martha Stewart Punch
I also have a giveaway! You may remember that I won an awesome prize package from the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog. I had these already, so I thought I would do a giveaway today since I hit 200 followers. I have a double of one more thing that I'll save for a later date to giveaway:-)
Cherries from Preserves cut at 3 1/2 inches
MPS Fruit & Veggie Puns
Bazzill Cardstock for cuts and background
White Signo Pen for accents
I was just in love with the idea of the iRock, but it dissapointed me tonight. It stopped working before I was done and I had to glue one last gem down. I hope it will work again (this was only the 2nd time I've used it), or I'll try to get a replacement.
Oh, and since I've hit 200 followers, I think I'll do a giveaway tomorrow!! Thanks so much to all my followers, new and old :-)

I'm slowly working on cards for a card swap I'm in. We're doing 16 cards -- 1 for each month plus 4 more. So here's one for July. I used the Independence Day mini and cut the hat out at 3 1/2 inches. I used the Gypsy so was able to do the band and the stars in different colors. I added yellow stickles to the stars and white faux sticking around the rim. The stamp is a Studio G, I think and the ribbon was some old Stampin' Up! that I'm almost out of. Then I just finished it off with some skittles. I'm not sure where the patterned came from, it was just in my stash.
I have to say that using my Gypsy makes creating so much easier and faster. I usually design while hanging out with my family. The hardest part is picking out the papers, but this one was super fast today :-)

My Pink Stamper Friends & Family greeting on the tag. I used some pretty pink ribbon and tied it like a bow on a present. I finished it off with some white Signo accents. The size of this card is 5 x 5 inches.
It is very pink--I guess I'm in a Pink mood right now!

All the paper is Bazzill. I was making a card last night for the Bazzill Circle challenge so it was all out already. I used D'vine Swirl folder for the background (I think that is my favorite!) and Swiss Dots for the heart (my 2nd favorite!). The cut came from Accent Essentials and are 3 inches. The with love is embossed on the bottom and came with my Rasberry Cuttlebug. I inked it a bit so you could see it. I added pink self-stick ribbon, white Signo pen for the stiching and pop-dotted the heart on.
This was a very easy card to put together!

I have lots more projects in the works, but have family coming in town Sunday for only a day and 1/2. But I hope to get some more done when my Gypsy is finished charging!

I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #18. This week the challenge is to make a cool sweet treat with an optional shape card. I wanted to try the shape so I used the card feature for the ice cream sundae on the Sweet Treats Cartridge. The size is 6 1/2 for the card and all the pieces. This is actually a small card, but I thought it was cute. I pop dotted the whipped cream and cherry and they are also stickled. I also added some white gel pen to the ice cream. Then I stamped the So Cool at the bottom from MPS Punny-licious set.

I might send this card for a card swap I'm in so I made two. The other one has brown paper for the background. I thought it would make a cute boy Valentine card!
Have a great day!

French Manor Cricut Cart Bird & Branch cut at 2 1/2 inches (I think)
Bazill Basics Berry Blush, Carob, & Carob Cream cardstock
DCWV Safari Kids patterned paper
MPS Friends & Family Happy Birthday stamp
American Crafts ribbon
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
I took the picuture with plenty of light, but it's not showing the colors very well--there's a bit of orange in that patterned paper. I think if you click on the picutre, you can see it a bit better. And I just love that ribbon! I got it in Archiver's. It's very nice ribbon and has a color on the other side as well.
Oh, I have a blog button now! Pam at The Posh Box installed it for me yesterday. Isn't it cute?!
Have a wonderful day!

I love everything Emma (My Creative Time) makes and wanted to play along with her Throwback Thursday. This week she asked everyone to use New Arrival and make something with a baby theme. If you don't have this cart, just use an older one to keep with the Throwback part of the challenge. http://www.creativetimeforme.com/ I don't have this one, so I used the baby buggy off of Stretch Your Imagination. Here's the supplies I used:
- Stretch Your Imagination cuts at 3 1/2 inches
- Die Cut with a View Baby Boy Text paper
- D'vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder
- Baby Blue Stickles
- White pen for stitching
- My Pink Stamper Friend & Family stamp (baby on buggy)
- Blue Ribbon
- Pop Dots
