Well I got the new Paisley Cart also for Christmas!!! What a fun little cart. It screams for bright colors and embossing to me!!! Seeing as how I need to replenish my Birthday stash I thought this would make a good start!! This card is a 5X7 and i pulled out my sewing machine to try my hand at a little stitching!! I cut the owl at 31/2 inches and he just layered up super. I have so many flowers that this card seem to find a home next to the owl. The Ribbon and the stamp i used I have had for I dont know how long to long to remember where it is from!!!!

Nick, my son, asked me to make a few Christmas cards to give to a few people in his office!!! Of course I in all my calm unstressed life said sure!! I thought i could give him a few of the ones I already made. But he asked that i give him four of them that I hadn't posted because he was afraid someone would of already seen them!!!!! Then he asked me to wait to post them so no one would get a sneak peek!!! I made four!!! This one is the guy one!!
Used some pop dots to lift the deer on the card!!! I Just got Christmas Noel this year and just love the cuts on this cart!!!
The cards for the girls in his office got the swirly xmas tree which i was really looking forward to using!!! I cut them out in four different layers so that they would pop off the card better and be a little better when handling the card. Made them in three different color style papers !
I was somewhat pleased with the out come and would definitely make this card again!!! I did do embossing in gold and matching colors for the sentiment on the cards!! Made the the lettering stand out more than just stamping or using my computer for the sentiment at bottom of these cards!! Colors are somewhat non traditional but hey I am a little like that myself!!!
Well I probably wont get in my little haven until after the holidays to create much!!! Really need to make some New Years Resolutions so that I am not so stressed next year when Christmas rolls around!!!! Have a Blessed Holiday Season everyone!!!!

Well I got one more done today!!! Thats five down and I don't know how many to go!!! I saw all these cardinals on different cards and thought they would look nice with the Doodlecharm snowman!!! A little different version than one of my other cards!! Once again this is a 51/2 inch card!!! Found them at Michaels last year and thought i would use them this year!!! Snowflakes I picked up at Big Lots last year also!!! The bird seed is stickles a cardmakers must!!! Doodled the snowman up stuck a ribbon around his neck for a scraf and used a G Studio $1 stamp and voila another Holiday Card!!!

Well when I think of Christmas I always think of iced gingerbread men and houses. So I pulled out Stretch Your Imagination and thought I could do this!!! Of course I didn't use the traditional Christmas colors but I think it still looks like a Holiday Season Card don't you??? I am going to try and make this layout in another color hope it compares to this one!!! Thanks for Looking

I have been traveling and not really getting to much time to spend on my card making lately. This makes Sandi a very sad girl. I needed something quick and easy to make to little guys a card for a party I was going to Today! Elmo is a very easy cut to work with!!! With a little embossing and inking he really comes to life I think!! I made a couple tags to put on the package to liven them up a little! Now on to some Xmas Cards I think!!!!

Good morning!!!! Saw this Sketch from Cupcake Design Sketch and thought why not give this a whirl!!! I use to make fabric country dolls and this little girl so reminded me of them!!! I used my cuddlebug to give a little dimension (Fiskars). I just love that you can use different company's embossing plates with the little guy!!!! Used Doodlecharms and Storybook Cartridge. Made my sentiment using word again (Oh I just love being able to do this) And now I am trying out making a post with Word!! Hope this works because I just love this new font!!!!
Please Leave a Comment and let me know what you think!!!!!

I made this card following a post on Cricut Message Boards. A great group of Ladies over there!!!!
When I started this I thought doesn't look to tricky, well that was before my mind started working!
(I need to work a little larger not good at small pieces yet)
I used lots of pop dots for dimension on this!! Stickled and put pearls on the little snowflakes that I layered about 5 times.
Ribbon is from my huge stash I have!!!
I used Wild Card for the Argyle layered over DCWV paper I had from last year cut at 5x7.
The snow flakes are from the Winter Woodland cart cut at 1 1/2 about 5 times.
Used George Basic Shapes to cut the Diamonds and ran thru my cuddlebug with swiss dot folder inked with white, powdery blue and silver ink. ( I had to use ds to get diamonds the right size)
Did use a silver gel pen to define the diamonds also.
I really enjoyed this card and am a little proud because I learned so many new things while making it.
* A special thank you to Custom Crops for posting how to make words in the shape of a circle. I was able to make my own little circle sentiment using their instructions.
Let me know what you think!! Leave a comment!!

Well starting to think about some winter cards!!! I was looking at Okies challanges last week and there was a snowman card made with snowflakes. I had gotten the Winter Woodland Cartridge and thought one of the snowflakes would make a cute base for a little snowbuddy so Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr came to life! Please let me know what you think!

Ok this is the first time I have tried to upload one of my cards into a post!! I bought the Cricut SpongeBob cartridge specifically for one of my granddaughters birthday. She turns 3 as you can tell. Picking out paper little embellishments and making a five inch character was such a challenge.
