Happy Birthday to my sister!

Hello crafters! Hope everyone is staying warm in the midst of all these freezing cold temperatures! Brrr!! Nothing to do but stay inside and craft right? lol. Well I have been making some cards over the past few days. Today's card is a birthday card for my sister. I used the new Cricut Create a Friend cartridge as well as the Cricut Best Images of 2006 cartridge for this card. It is an easel card (which is one of my favorite cards to make!) and I used various papers from my stash as well as some googly eyes for the dog! My sister has a sweet dog named Rocky so I decided to create a card for her depicting her taking Rocky out for a walk! (That little doggy is too cute and it looks just like Rocky!) I'll be posting some Valentine's Day cards in my next post!

Happy 2014!!

Hello crafters!
Hope everyone had a wonderful time with your families and friends for the holidays! I thought I would share some of my Christmas card creations I made for my family and friends! First up is a card I made for my dad...Oh Christmas Tree! I used the Christmas tree from the Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge along with some buttons I found at Hobby Lobby (for the toys and snowflakes!), some white glitter paper for the snow, and snowflake paper from the DCWV "Arctic Wishes" stack. I used a CardzTV stamp from the stamp set, "Very Merry". The next 2 cards were for my mom and my sister. For those cards, I used the Winter Frolic cartridge for the little girls, some holly buttons, ribbon/bows from my stash and Christmas papers from Michaels's Recollections, Bo Bunny and DCWV paper pads. And finally, a cute snowman from the Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge. Again, I used some snowflake papers from the DCWV "Arctic Wishes" paper pad, some white glitter paper for the snow and buttons for the snowflakes! Oh and some googly eyes too!
