Hi everyone!  Here's just a few things I quickly put together last night from the Preserves cartridge.  I highlighted this cartridge over at The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog for Fantabulous Friday today.

Make sure to head over there to see what this cartridge has to offer!

This red tag using My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Puns is my favorite!  Have a wonderful Friday!!

Hot Dog!

Hi everyone!   Two posts in a row, can you believe it? :)  Here's a quick card for a small challenge.  It needed to be picnic related and have a gingham print on it.  I was looking for red gigham, but only found the green.  I thought it would work though.

Here are the details:
  • Hot Dog cut at 2 3/4 inches from Simply Charmed
  • Gingham paper cut from Elegant Edges at 4 x 5 1/2 inches
  • My Pink Stamper More Punnylicious stamp
  • Cuttlebug Dots folder
  • Recollections Green Gingham paper
  • Yellow and xmas Red Stickles
  • Lemondrop twine from The Twinery
  • pop dots
I thought it turned out kind of cute!

Have a great day!

I Scream for Ice Cream!

Hi everyone!  I am really trying to get back to regular posting, I promise :)  Today, I have a card for you that goes along with the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week called I Scream for Ice Cream!  I happen to LOVE ice cream.  And my favorite time of year to eat it is summer.  My kids and I have been going bowling once a week, pretty much, and there is a Dairy Queen on the way home.  So it's become a habit to stop and get a milkshake after our fun.  I don't think my waistline likes it!  Here's the card I made.

And here are the details:
  • Ice Cream cut at 4 1/2 inches from Sweet Treats
  • My Pink Stamper Sweetest Cupcakes stamp
  • The Paper Studio Sugar and Spice Stack
  • Sizzix folder for ice cream cone
  • American Crafts Ribbon
  • iRock
  • Frosted Lace Stickles
  • pop dots
As I was finishing this card, I thought it might work for my daughter to give to her BFF's sister (she just turned 6) this weekend.  I showed it to her and she said that it's perfect--she loves ice cream and pink!   I'm always glad to have a purpose for my cards, but do tend to let them pile up :)

Now make sure to visit Fantabulous Cricut and see what the Design Team posted on Monday.  Then, be sure to make and post your own cool treat project!

Have a great day!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #68

Hi everyone!  So sorry there have not been posts from me lately--we were on vacation.  I am glad to be home in my own bed, but sad to have to go back to work--LOL!  I need to get back into the swing of crafting though. 

But I was able to work ahead for today's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday theme of Let's Go Camping!  This was fun for me since I purchased Camping Critters a bit ago and had not used it yet :)

Here are the details:
  • Moose cut from Camping Critters AT 4 1/2 inches
  • My Pink Stamper Freedom Rocks Stamp
  • Imaginsce Happy Camper Tree Hugger pattern paper
  • American Crafts ribbon
  • Black pen
I thought you could make this for kids coming home from camp or someone from a long trip.  It was really easy to put together and this cartridge has the cuttest cuts!  I just might feature this one for Fantabulous Friday so check back :)

Now, make sure to go over to Fantabulous Cricut to see all the Design Team's amazing projects.  Then, make you own to enter in the challenge this week!

Have a great day!
