I'm back!!!! And I hope regularly :)

So I've been gone for quiet a while now. Dare I say I lost interest in my crafting, but with Valentine's just around the corner, I have my creative juices flowing! While I was taking a "break" from my Cricut I started playing around with stamps and Copics and I fell in love! My favorite stamps are from The Greeting Farm. They are absolutely adorable and great for coloring with Copics. Here is one of my many Valentine's to come.
Recipe: Patterned and glitter paper from K & Company "KP Valentine" stack
Stamped image from The Greeting Farm "Stella"
(Copics used to color Stella -Dress: RV 21, RV 23, RV 29, R 27 Skin: E 50, E 51, E 53 Hair E 79, E 74, E 71)

Think Pink!

For this week's challenge we were told to make a card using pink, scallops, flourish, glitter, jewels, and ruffles (picking any 3). I think I incorporated more than 3 hehehe oh well! Of course this all has to do with it being October and breast cancer awareness month. So here is my entry for the challenge. I hope you enjoy :) I made an "any occasion" card so I can have it handy whenever I need one.

Here is the recipe:
Sugar and Spice - Scalloped rectangle 4 x 5 1/4"
Sweethearts - Scooter gal 3.18"
Stickles - Black Diamond, Cinnamon, and Cotton Candy
Stick on pearls
Black ribbon and glue dots to keep the ruffling together
My Pink Stamper stamp set - "Everyday Occasions" for the sentiment and swirls



This was my first attempt at gathering ribbon so don't laugh :)

MPS Imagine That Wednesday Challenge

Here is my entry for Robyn's challenge. I made it using the Best Friends Imagine cart.
My cat was cut at 3.8"
Tiny birds were .8"
Meow banner was .8"
Yellow patterned paper was cut at 4" but i had to trim the side to make it fit onto my card
I added bling with the iRock and Stickles to the birdies' wings

Boy have I been bad!

I'm such a bad blogger. I have neglected my blog for who know how long! I noticed I had been a little down. I was super excited for my Imagine to arrive, I neglected my Expression :( I wasn't in the mood to make anything. Since my Imagine was on backorder I waited about a month for it to arrive. Well now it is here and I'm loving it!!!!

Cricut Circle Calling Card

As part of the Cricut Circle we were encouraged to create calling cards to carry with us to any Circle event. We could enter a card for drawings at the events and hand them out to other Circle members as a way to keep in contact. Here is the card I made a while ago. On the back I printed out a white square with my real name, message board name, Circle member number, and email address. Per request of Gramjak I have put up my card on my blog :).
I used the Create a Critter cart to cut the raccoon at 2 1/2". I do not remember the exact measurements, but they were along these lines hahahaha. I know that the card itself measures 3". The white is cut at 2 3/4" and the pink is at 2 3/4" x 1 1/2".
Here is the card holder to go along with it.
I cannot take credit for this. Another Circle member made the template. I cannot find the post where she showed how to do it. Once I create a template for it I will post it :)
