Happy Easter!

Happy Happy Easter!!!
Just a quick blog tonite because I'm spent...from slaving over a hot srove ALL day to running errands and having 2 kids over at the last minute...and I still have an Egg Hunt to here we go!

This is an Easter Card I made for my Best Friend,  and I felt quite accomplished since I could never figure out how to make those beautiful Flowers I keep seeing...well this morning I set my mind to it and finally figured it out!  The Base White Cardstock is from AC MOORE,  the Patterned Paper is from DCWV, and the Solid Colored Cardstock is also from DCWV. I Cricut Cut and Mat the 2 pieces in the middle from the Basics Cart in CCR, then Embossed the White layer, then on a separate sheet of White Cardstock I Heat Embossed the Easter Greeting in a Pink Tinsel and adhered that with Foam Tape. I added the Rhinestones and finally created the Roses, using the Essentials Cart in CCR. 

Sooooo excited to add a new technique to my repertoire!

Jump Rope For Heart Jumping Bunnies

Good day all! The Sun is finally shining and the smow is totally melting, too fast however (thought I'd never say that!)....this is what happens where I live when it melts too fast...

That's right, ICE JAMS & FLOODING! Luckily,  I live above Flood Stage, so no danger here....Thank God!

It's been another crazy week, but I managed to get these lil guys done for our Daughter's Jump Rope For Heart Team, The Jumping Bunnies for the Annual American Heart Association Jump Rope For Heart event yesterday!  They are pins that her and her teammates wore during the event and they were soooo much fun to make!
The are Cricut Cut from CCR with the Create A Critter Cartridge, and a School Cartridge (the Jump Rope was made by cutting out 2 Graduation Cap Tassels and gluing them together). I Swirl Embossed and Red Glittered the Heart before adhering the Bunnies with foam tape for a layered effect. Then I added Black/ Red Glitter Glue to the Jump Rope, Pink Glitter Glue to the cheeks and added a few Rhinestones,  of course!
Our Daughter and her Teammates LOVED these little guys and so did the Teachers! 

Now it's time to hop back on over to the Studio to get some Easter projects done!

Gettin Busy With My Cricky!

Good Morning Monday Morning! I had a busy weekend in the Studio this weekend....and had a blast with my new Subscription to the Cricut Craft Room!!! I am sooooo excited about this purchase,  I can't even tell you!
Unfortunately,  I've been so busy creating new things, a lil bit here, a lil bit there, I haven't finished a thing! So I decided to post a card I made for my Parents Anniversary for thier last one. If I get a minute later, I'll share the details, but for now, pictures will have to do! Thanks for stopping by!♥

Monochromatic Thank You

Good Morning from Melty Northern Maine! Yesterday's snow did not accumulate,  Thank Heavens! So it's finally starting to feel like Spring! Yippy!!!

I thought I would share a Thank You Card I made recently for my Mom's Caretaker. She is a Sweetheart with a Fashionista/Diva side and Pink is her favorite color. The base is AC Moore Cardstock in White, Patterned Papers are from an AC Moore Cardstock Patterned Pack which came in 6x6 so it's PERFECT for Card Making. I Stamped and Heat Embossed the Sentiment in Glittery Pink on a Frame from the same Patterned Paper, added some Ribbon and of course Rhinestones.  I Love Love Love Bright Colors and Monochromatic Schemes, and this one fell together exactly as I saw it in my "Creative Thoughts", otherwise known as my "Pea-Brain"! Don't you just LOVE it when that happens?!

Card # 3 From My 1st Card Order...

Good Morning Sunshines! And yes, we've FINALLY seen the sun...for 3 whole days!!!'s the kicker...we're getting MORE snow over the weekend  :( Where we live, we strongly believe in what's called the Farmers Almanac, which is supposed to predict the years' weather, and this last one had predicted a long, snowy & very cold predicted 2 snow storms in April...well here's the first...and it also predicted a large snow storm in May...we'll have to see...but so far, it's been right on the money! The old timers have always said, during the last snow storms,"Well, we needed this snow to melt the old.", all I have to is come on storm of May so we can get on to Spring!!!

This is the final installment of my 1st card order, the 3rd card. It was for an expectant Grandmother at her Step daughter's shower, and I hope they all Love it as much as I did making it!

As always, Thanks for stopping by! !!♥
