Fun Sunday

I was invited to do a demo for some ladies and had a lot of fun.  I met some new friends and got to visit with a friend.  We made a quick little card, then I tried to show them how to cut and make a box from the Art Philosophy cartridge, but my Cricut quit! Bummer, they were very understanding and even invited me back!
Here's the card, they really liked it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sit Down Saturday

How funny, I just can't figure out how to create a blog title so I'm going to 'wing it' for awhile until I come up with just the right ones.  But if you're reading this I appreciate that you're not running off.  Thank you!

The card I created for today is so cute and simple.
It's a 4x4 card.  I used Colonial White for the card base, Sarita for the mat, Goldrush and Buttercup for the flower, cut using Artiste (pg.55) and the banner cut from Buttercup using Artiste (pg.35), Happy Birthday is from the Banner Wishes, My Acrylics stamp set.  All are products from Close to My Heart.

Don't forget to make a comment and/or follow my blog to be entered into this months drawing!

Have an enjoyable day and get creative!

Timely Cards

I'm a member of a card club.  They are a super group of ladies, monthly we take turns hosting and coming up with ideas for cards or, well, sometimes, anything.  This month the challenge was sympathy cards, sadly something that we all need occasionally.  The girls made some beautiful cards and I am very appreciative for all of them.

This is the card I made.  I'm pleased with it and everyone seemed to like it.

I used White Daisy cardstock, Twilight ink, the design element was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (pg. 26), the stamped element was from the Swirls Around stamp set.
All are from Close to My Heart.

I did make two designs but opted to use only one of them.


I'm getting a late start this month, but there will still be a drawing.  This month the prize will be one of each of the items I post each day, that I make.  Sometimes there may be items I share that are made by others and those won't be part of the drawing and I will remind you of that if it happens.

The drawing will be over at midnight, August 31, 2014, Pacific time.  You can enter by making a comment and you'll get an additional entry if you follow me.

Have a great day, now go get creative!

Happy August

I have been traveling around this summer.  Not a lot by some folks standards but for me... a lot!  I've acquired a few things along the way and want to share with some of my BUNCO peeps.  I play BUNCO twice a month with 11 other girls each time and on Fridays I organize a group at the Kennewick Senior Center.  So my craft today sort of shows a bit of craftiness and frugalness.
(I did my best with the photography.)
I found some really cute post-its in Disneyland.  There were so many of them I decided to divide them up to share with lots of my friends.  I cut the tag from White Daisy cardstock using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I sponged the edges with Blush, Creme Brulee, Heavenly Blue (sorry all retired colors) and Sweet Leaf. So there you go with some tightwad craftiness.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
