Mickey has his foot to the metal to get to you...

Well its been a while since I've posted anything. Things have been kind of crazy around here. My lovely daughter told me this morning that I need to start making Christmas cards! Can you believe that, she's four and she had to tell me to start making cards! Well I listened to her and I made one today for a good friend, however I have more to make. This card was a lot of fun to make, I used the Mickey and Friends cart for the car and for Mickey ( this idea came from joy on the circut board) and I used my snowflake and swirls cuttlebug folders. I went over every embossed part with Diamond Stickles. The car and the snow are all 3D thanks to my Zots!! I used my new snow marker for the snow accents on the car, it was my first time using it and I love it! Well I hope you enjoy the card...

Until next time,

Autumn is on the way....

Well believe it or not is a nice cool day in Texas, however it is only because its been raining all day long! I figured with such nice weather, Autumn is right around the corner, so I decided to make an Autumn card. This card was made with scraps believe it or not! The pumpkin is from the Cricut Cartridge Wildcard, I attempted to make the card (blackout feature) and at 3 3/4 it was too small for what I was trying to do. So I just cut the Pumpkin off and used it for this Autumn card. I then used another scrap sheet to emboss the Autumn phrases (a cuttlebug folder, sorry I do not remember the name) with my cuttlebug. The leaf brads were purchased at the scrapbook convention in Texas this year from the outlet. The plaid mat is a sheet from the DCWF Fall pack. This card was my first Autumn card to make, and because it was so much fun, I plan on making many more...friends get ready to receive Autumn cards!!

Until next time...

Wow... What a weekend

This weekend has been a little bit of a challenge, however I still managed to complete some cards!! So far I have completed 7 cards this weekend...WOW!! I am posting two now and plan on posting the rest at a later date.

The first card is for my Aunt, who always seems to call when I need her most!! The phone is from the new Cricut Cartridge From My Kitchen and is cut out at 3 inches. I used DCWV for my mat and ribbon, Prisma flowers, and embellishments are from M's.

On the second card I combined Inakadinkado scroll stamps with my recent shipment from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. The SCACD sentiment reads" Nothing is impossible to a believing heart" . I strongly suggest you check out her site!! I used a DCWV Fall mat that I purchased last year, along with ribbon I purchased at M's.

That's it for now, but there is more to come. Please leave comments to let me know what you think!! Until next time continue to Create, Create, CREATE!!
