Here is my card for the forum this week. We were suppose to use a tree somewhere on our card. I used the Christmas tree as my focal point!!!! I spend alot of time surfing thru wonderful videos others make on utube and someone made showed all how to make this christmas tree using the martha stewart punch that all have from a couple years back and winter frolic tree as a base. It sure made it easy to make up for this A2 size card. Did a little embellishing on my tree with some bling and pearls to spurce it up hahaha!! Spruce tree get it!!!! Also tried out a background stamp (working on my stamping technique and new christmas sentiment stamps!!!

Well i got up this am and decided to create!!!! I pulled out the Jolly Holiday cart and a set of new xmas stamps I bought and this is what I came up with. I also did a layer from Elegant Edges to add just a little to the card design (A2 size) The tree (3.5in) and Bird (1.75) is from JH. I used my stamp on the background and stamped on white and cut the penants for the sentiment.
This is the first time I have used my iphone to take a picture and I was pretty pleased with the clarity!!! Of course my new room has plenty of light and I am sure that helped!!!!

I did change it up a little by gathering some sheer fabric in back of the foam board circle i used and layered mine on top of each other a little more than she did. I have a few friends that might like this so I plan on making a few more wreath as they go together quickly!!!
Go watch maybe you to will make one of these up for Halloween!!!!
Dom just loves cars and trucks. He spends hours playing with matchbox cars and all the different trucks and vehicles he has gotten over the past year!!! I found the Cricut lite cartridge Beep Beep last week and thought this was perfect for my grandson. I am sure to be using it alot. I think I might try and make a mini album from it!!! I know he will love it!!! I hope he loves his card!!!!

I was impressed with how it defined the image more and gave the embossing a deeper looking image. I used a new butterfly punch i bought recently. I really have to stay out of the stores. Seems like I am buying more than I am scrapping!! Thanks for taking a look!!!

I haven’t posted or made a new card is so long. I have been busy working on a tag challenge (my first) and have neglected my cards. On My Craft Spot, this week they are challenging all to make a project for a friend. I just purchased a couple of the newer Cricut Lite cartridges with Bump in the Night being one of them. Even though we are all a little different we have friends of all kinds. These cute little monsters reminded me of that!!! I have watched Utube , visited different sites trying to get motivated to make a card. I am sure you will see other cards similar to mine but I changed it up and combined different things to get my card!! A few embossing folders and some ink button and bows and I have a card to send to a friend!! Hopefully this card has broken the ice on the freeze I have been in making cards!!!

Even though I haven’t been scrapping very much I have found the time to get a few new carts for myself. Damask décor was used on so many pretty cards I had to have it and used it to make my card. And imagine my surprise when I was able to get into the Cricut Craft Room and actually use it!!! I cut the card base and pumpkin out with it of course I had to run them through some embossing folders to give them some texture. Now the little crow I cut using my imagine and the imagine more cartridge. He is many layers cut at 3.3 and pop dotted and inked. And yes I bought myself some white seam binding and inked it myself using Andirondak inks to match the color of my cards… a button and some pearls from my stash.
The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael’s. I love the fonts on this series!!! The papers are some I have had forever and from some of my scraps from other projects but seemed to work with the card.
Hopefully I will be able to do more in the coming days because I am so much more relaxed and happy when I am working in my little room. Thankyou for stopping by and hey let me know you were here!!!!

And cut the mouse from Create a Critter at 3 inches for the inside of the card. I love using embossing folders to give added interest to my papers. The sentiments are rub ons that I picked up a long time ago at Big Lots. They are made by American Crafts. The card is a A2 size card and many layers and popdots used with small touches of chalk ink and pop dots for dimension also.

We took another mini vacation (working one for my husband) and went to North Myrtle Beach. A very nice couple generously offered their condo on the ocean for us to use while we were there. It was so much nicer than staying at a hotel!!! I wanted to send them a little note to say how much we appreciated their generosity!!!
I used Life is a beach for my little crab and some Debbie Mumford paper that I have had like forever. I put some googly eyes on the little guy that I got at M’s I just love the eyelids on these!!! I used a little crinkle paper twine like ribbon to finish off the design.
My mind is still relaxing at the beach, I sure need it to return so I can get back in the swing of being at home!!
Thanks for looking and stopping by and saying hello….Sandi

There were a few challenges going on this week that I used to make this card for my hubby for Father’s day.
I used my heritage cart to cut the auto out and ran thru my embosser. And I bought some spellbinder dies so I could use my computer to print out my sentiments when I didn’t have quite the right stamps for my sentiments. The metal gears are from my stash of embellishments I have been stocking up on and I used eyelets to run some cotton twine thru at the top of the card. I have to say that every time I use a challenge to make a card I learn something new and enrich my knowledge in Card making!!!
I hope you all stop by these challenge sites and take a look and have fun playing with paper!!! Let me know what you think!!!

We were gone a total of two weeks finishing our travels visiting my friend since the fourth grade Marcia in Charlotte NC. Good Times!!!!!
I think that I will need to take some time and get back into the swing of things but thought I would post this little card I made using Once upon a Princess in honor of keeping all that rain up in the north while I enjoyed all that wonderful sunshine down south!!!!
Now I just have to get busy with all these ideas floating around in my head!!!!

Only a few more to go!!! I need lots of practice on using the sewing machine!!! For some reason on paper I cant sew a straight line or get the paper to feed evenly on my machine. You would think with the type of machine it is I wouldn’t have much problems!! I will Have to make another because I am not quite satisfied!!! Not by a longshot!!!!! Once again the Bloom cartridge was used with K&Company paper.
Well I know what I will be doing!!! Practice Practice Practice

Well I almost had my post all done when the power went out here and it is not even storming yet!!! Lost it all so lets try again!!!
There are a few mother day challenges going on and I will be doing some traveling over the next few weeks and wont be able to scrap!!
Cricut lite cartridge-bloom
Cuddlebug embossing folder dots
Making Memories- English Garden paper pack
Studio G’s Best Mom stamp set
Made this card from a frame that was on the bloom lite cartridge cut at 4 inches and used the paper and inked the edges to give it some depth!! I love using ribbon on cards and this bow seemed to round out the design of the card!!
*The butterfly is from a floral pick I tore apart and put on the card using glossy accents
I hope to get a few more cards done before I leave and I am sure I will be stopping at LSS’s along the way and looking for treasures to use on my cards when I get home!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!!!!!!!!!
