Sweet friend


Hello, it's Monday already?  How is that possible?

Today I've got a cute little bear with a chocolate kiss.
This is from the Addicted to Chocolate bears set.
I am still trying to get comfortable with my new Cricut and I actually did the print and cut with that machine! I was impressed, no tracing, just import it and tell it to print then cut.  It even cut the little spaces between his head and his hat straps.

 I pulled out my fun acrylic embellishments to add to the fun.
I bought the jar die cut through Wish.com.  I was leary ordering from them since it was only a dollar but it it pretty cute.  It cut the paper fine, but I had to add a paper shim to get it to cut the acetate.
 My little friend looks kind of sad to be trapped in the jar, or maybe he's worried he will get eaten too!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope I made you smile today!

Tank you

 I made a fun shaker card today using the adorable aquarium set.
I made the litttle fish look like he's jumping up to relay the message. 
I used tiny beads and some tiny star sequins for my shaker elements.

Sweet owl

I've been watching the eagle cam a lot on Facebook, have you seen it?
It's an eagle couple down in Fort Myers who have a new hatchling. It's wonderful to see a live feed of their lives.  Very cool!
So, that is where I drew my inspiration from for this card.  I created a fun background using a wood plank paper and some green linen striped paper and created my tree using some glitter tape.
I popped the nest and owl up using foam tape.

Floating by

Design Team

I'm sharing another balloon character set.
I really have fun with these animals.
I used a new card base from Creative Kuts.



 I poked a small hole in their hands and threaded the twine through so it looks more like they are holding it.  I made it long enough so the card can be opened.

Christmas Thank you


So today I have a great thank you card for those gifts we all got on Sunday.
I used the wonderful gingerbread man image and some cute cookie cutter embellishments I found. 

 After I colored him I added crystal effects to his eyes, nose and gum drop buttons!
I then used liquid pearls paint for his icing.

Unicorn wishes


How cute are these cards?
I love these sets that Lisa makes, It's so fun to print them all out and make a set of cards at once.

 I used my gel pen to add glitter and some white accents.

Balloon friends


This is a new set, I made a several cards using the set.
These are so cute.  I used the outline of the balloon to make different balloons from papers to match.

Christmas Penguins


Today I'm sharing a really fun (if I say so myself) card.
I am really thrilled with this one.
I had my cameo cut all the pieces out for me and arranged them in a fun scene creating an easel card.


I added lots of glitter and used glitter paper for the background.
I also used a could of sequin snowflakes I've been hoarding (er, saving).

I used the candy cane and one of the gifts for the easel stop inside.
