I was on the computer doing our dreaded TAXES.... This of course required my utmost attention. Candy our cat was of course trying to get some love and attention. After a while, I thought things were too quiet. I heard a little rustling from under my desk and found my crazy cat in the trash bin. All I can say is curious, curious, curious!
Wow I can't believe it has been a week since my last post. Oh where does the time go! I think my Baby Bug was probably getting lonely... hehe. Well,I made this card for my niece's upcoming 18th birthday. I am entering it in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #003. I bling-ed it with glitter and rhinestones. I am also entering it in the Cricutters Anonymous Womans challenge #30. I cut the cake with the Stamping Cartridge and the #18 with Base Camp cartridge. I used my cuttlebug for the embossing, then lightly inked over the image with a darker pink ink. Hope you like it. Have a great Wednesday.

I made this card for my Hunny-Bunny (get it..) LOL. I think it qualifies for several challenges. I used the sketch from CPS #159. It has an Easter theme with Pastel colors for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #002. I am also using this card for CCC #18- Easter theme since I used my cricut to cut the bunny. The shape is from Doodlecharms. What a cute bunny, just like my hunny. Hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.
This challenge really made me think outside of the box. I make tons of cards for my girlfriends but very few for men. Well, this is what I came up with. I made this card for my brother-in-law who is a TOTAL rock fan. He loves rock music and rock concerts. I thought this guitar would be great on a card for his upcoming birthday. I used Opposites Attract for the lettering, George for the white star, and Stamping for the guitar. Thanks for visiting.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all these great challenge blogs. I am having so much fun participating. I made this card for a friend. I want to thank her for being so inspiring to me. My picture doesn't do this glittered patterned paper justice. It is gorgeous in person. I am new to these challenges, so if anyone has some tips for me on photographing entries (especially for glittered items) I would appreciate it. Back to my card, I used the Storybook cartridge for the patterned and red paper. I didn't have the SYI cartridge for the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge but I thought this title would work as a flourish. The title is from the Home Accents cartridge. The sketch is from CPS #158. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day.

I made this card with 2 challenges in mind. The first was the Cricut Cardz Challenge #16. I used the Graphically Speaking cartridge for the butterflies and the Stamping cartridge for the scallop circle and rings. I went with a simple sentiment of "SMILE" since thinking of spring coming certainly makes me smile. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think.

I am so diggin' these challenge blogs. I am so excited to be getting so much more crafting done. I am ashamed to say my craft desk was starting to get dusty. I made this card for my sis who loves anything Irish, including Norte Dame. The sketch I used was from CPS #156. It also qualifies for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #14. None of my cartridges has anything St. Patty's themed but I remembered I saw some one had paper-pieced together a four-leaf clover out of hearts. I used Cricut Design Studio to weld the hearts from the George cartridge and the stem from Opposites Attract. I cut a large clover and traced the shape with glitter on the lt. green paper. I then cut a smaller one and completely covered in with glitter. I know how us girls like bling. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
