Count on Me

Simple and quick card I made to try out my new 3 Birds on Parade cart which is only sold through HSN as of right now. I feel in love with this card as soon as I saw it. It has something you can use all year round, from Valentine's Day to Christmas or Halloween. Not only does it have images for holiday, but it has many more everyday images.

For this card I used two cartridges, one for my images and the other for the card itself. My images were cut at 2.5 inches and the sentiment was cut at 1.75 inches. The little vampire is supposed to have his cape lined in red, but the cuts were too small I could not work with them. I'm thinking if the bird was a bit bigger, then I could've used the red lining of his cape. The card itself came from the B is for Boy Lite cart. I used one of the tags and welded them together to make a card. Then I used a single tag as the background.

I used all SU paper. I've slowly built up my collection so now I have almost every color :). Here are the colors I used:
Old Olive
Night of Navy
Tempting Turquoise
Basic Black
Whisper White
Daffodil Delight

Thanks everyone!

The "It's Not Easy Being Pink" blog hop was such a success! Thank you everyone for the sweet thoughts and prayers for baby Reily. He is doing better now. We thank God that he has made amazing progress these past 2 days. He is now off the IV and the oxygen :)

I wanted to share this card I made last week for a contest held by the Cricut Circle. We were asked to make a card that would be donated to the lymphoma and leukemia center in Arizona. We were only allowed to use Provo Craft and Bazzill products. The card will be judge by Bazzill employees and 2 lucky winners will be able to go to a special Provo Craft event in AZ. Winners will be able to take one guest. Hotel stay and events tickets will be provided. Even if I don't win I know my card will be used for a good cause :)


For this card I used 3 different carts. I used Cherry Limeade for the bird, tree, and Hi!. The cloud, sun, and Just 4 You came from Create a Critter cart. The card shape itself came from Just Because Cards cart. All the paper was from Bazzill. I did some embossing on the cloud and the bird with the Cuttlebug. I used the iRock to adhere the bling and Stickles on the limes.
I do hope this card brings a smile to whoever receives it.

"It's Not Easy Being Pink" Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the Blog Hop in which we are sending out a big Thank You to Robyn with My Pink Stamper for allowing us the privilege and honor of being part of her design team for the first term. We also would love to thank her for her creativity and sharing her talents with us. She is an amazing person who is always doing things for other so we wanted to do something special just for her! If you are starting here, this is a Blog Hop that includes 7 bloggers total which consist of the previous My Pink Stamper Design Team (Emma is still a current designer). Our theme is thank you so you will see that throughout each blog as you hop along. You will definitely want to check out everyone’s project and each blog has a fun giveaway to offer!! This is going to be so much fun, so let’s get started!!!

I made this post-it note holder I scrap-lifted from a friend. I thought it was the cutest thing! The only cuts I made were the flamingo from he Serenade solutions cart and the scalloped oval from the French Manor cart. Everything else was cut by the paper cutter and the edge puncher. I will post direction in a later post.

Now on to a small giveaway! I will be giving away all the 3 different sizes of post-its so you can get started on your own post-it note holder. It's not much, but it will sure get you started on your project. I totally forgot to get something for the giveaway. I've been at the hospital this past week since the newest baby in our family is in the ICU :( I promise to put something else in the giveaway once I get a chance to go to the store. Just leave me a comment with a way to get a hold of you. I will be picking the winner on Thursday.

Now on to the next 6 talented Ladies! The next person on the hop is Pam (click on her name to hop on over to her blog and join in on the fun)! If you started this blog hop over on one of the other amazing blogs just click any of the names below and you will be re-directed to the next blog to hop along to!
