FCCB: Challenge #124 - 2012 Olympics

This was just the challenge I needed to get my bootie in gear. I have been scrappin' a little, but it has been forever since I made something for a challenge. The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge was to make a project with a sports theme. I am changing my son's room to a sports theme so this challenge was perfect. I used the Sports Mania cartridge for all the cuts Modge Poged on to these wooden wall hangings. I think they are gonna look great in his new "Big Boy" room. Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think.

My two babies!

I had to get a picture of these two asleep on the couch. My hubby had just put Justin down after his feeding, when Candy came over and made herself comfy as well. They just looked so cute and comfy.
I am very excited today because I made the Top 5 over at FCCB. Yippie! Thanks for stopping by.

FCCB #31- On the Wall

I was so happy to see this challenge over at FCCB. This project had been "in progress" for a while now. I lost my poor kitty Ashes to cancer in 2007. When she was so sick and it was time for her to go, her vet was so caring. They gave us a momento box with her collar and a small paper mache box with her paw imprint in clay. We thought this was so sweet. I always knew I wanted to display it. I made this shadow box to honor her memory. I used the Storybook cartridge to cut her name. The Home Accents cartridge for the plaque I mounted her name to. Then because the background paper I used had butterflies, I cut some butterflies with the Create a Critter cartrige. Let me know what you think.

CPS Sketch #187

Yippie! I got to sneak in to my craft room yesterday. I had a BoBunny card kit from last year that I never used. I figured since I don't have much scrap time these days, I better start on some Christmas cards. I loved this sketch from CPS this week, simple and very versatile. So here is my take on the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

CPS #185

It's been forever since I have been able to participate in any challenges, hopefully I will be able to get back into things. I made this card to congratulate a co-worker on her new baby. I stamped the baby image and colored it in with my new prismacolor pencils. These are very new for me, I am still practicing. I hope to be as good as some of the other people that enter these challenges one day. I based the card on CPS Sketch #185. I hope to sneak into my craft room again to get the creative juices going again. Thanks for stopping by.

CPS #178

This is a quick and simple card I made as a thank you for a baby gift that was sent to us from a friend. I used the card sketch from CPS #178. I actually used only scraps of paper and ribbon for this card. I love when I can use all those little bits and pieces. I couldn't believe I even had a scrap of ribbon to match. I am not sure if anyone else does this, but I save all the ribbons from gifts for use later. I have re-used some really nice ribbon. I just love to save some cash when I can. Let me know what you think.

Another card for CPS#177

Yeah!! I got to sneak back to do a little crafting today. Here is another card for my hubby's co-worker using sketch #177 from CPS. Yup, here comes another baby. Doesn't it make you wonder, "WHAT IS IN THE WATER????" Anyway, I really loved this sketch. You can really do as much or as little you want and your card looks great. I did a little embossing, I love the way an embossed stamp looks but I am just not that great at that process. I guess practice makes perfect. Let me know what you think. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
