Quick Father's Day Card using Wild Card


Happy Monday!
Today I wanted to share a quick Father's Day Card using the Wild Card cart. I wanted to get a semi-early start on these, so I can began to make some scrapbook pages. I am so behind with scrapbooking. I designed this in my gypsy. It only took about 15 minutes to actually make the card.

Sympathy Card Using the Wild Card Cart

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday. This week has been kind of busy for me. I made this card for my cousin. She passed away last Saturday while attending the graduation ceremony for the local high school. I was sitting approximately 6-8 chairs away from her. She watched as two of her nieces graduated, then upon walking to the car; she simply fell backwards went unconscious and stopped breathing. The hospital is next door to the facility, but they were unsuccessful in reviving her. She was only 37 years old. She had some health problems, but no-one expected her to leave that way. I plan to give this card to her mom. Sympathy card are harder for me. I want to make them somber, but not sad. My prayers are with her mom,brother, sisters,and son.

Door Hangers using TBBM!

I can't believe this is my second post this week! I am on a roll! I am out for summer break, but my kids are still in school until later in the month. I try to do some crafting several times a week. Today I want to share two door hangers I made using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cart. This cart was a free download on my gypsy. I made these for two 13 yr olds. I designed them in my gypsy. I used some medium weight chipboard that I got at Joanns (with a coupon of course). Covered the chipboard in some thick black poster board-like paper that also came in the pack then decorated one with the gypsy font and the other with Storybook. The patterned papers are DCWV. Feel free to click on them for a closer look. I used glimmer mist on the flowers to give them a little "bling." I hope they enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by :)

Birthday card for my mom and more graduation cards!


My mother's birthday was last Thursday. She gets to celebrate her birthday along with Mother's Day (Lucky!) I made this card for her using the Mother's Day seasonal cart and Gypsy font. The super cute pattern paper is American Crafts Dear Lizzy Collection that I picked up from Marshalls at a super deal. The flowers are from ebay and the beautiful pearl center is Martha Stewart. I also made more graduation cards, but in a different color. I try to match the school's color. This one was made with the Locker Talk cart as well, but I used Cricut American Alphabet on the new E2 for the font! I found a Stampin Up! graduation cap stamp in my stash and used gold embossing powder to stamp the back of the envelope. I don't remember the brand of stamp on the front of the envelope, but I know it was purchased at Joanns. Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Teacher Appreciation Card

Hi !

I made this card for my 4 yr old's preschool teachers. They are pretty amazing women and I am so grateful for all they have done for her. I used the Create a Critter cart for these cute cuts. I love this cart! Most of the paper is scraps of PTI and Stampin Up. I hope they really like it.

Thanks for stopping by:)
