cute little basket

i saw Gina K make this basket on Stamp TV and fell in love with it. So I thought I would give it a try. It was so much easier to make than I thought it was. Hope you enjoy. Have a great day.

Graduation card

This is for a sketch challenge at Posh Designs Scrapbook Store. I had a lot of fun coming up with a design for this. Even though my daughter isn't graduating until 2013, I wanted to do a graduation card and I thought it would be fun to it in her school colors. Orange; Black and White. TFL!!!!

Mostly I used scraps that I had in my scrap bins. My goal is to try to use up most of my scraps for cards and such. I did use my cricut to cut out the graduation cap. I cut it out using Every Day Paper Dolls. The ribbon is I believe from Michael's. (Doing this project I wanted to use black ribbon too but realized I didn't have any. I am going to have to rectify that soon. LOL)

Cards I have made for my beautiful step daughter

I made these cards for my 9 year old stepdaughter , she moved back with her mother in June. I just haven't posted them. Sorry. But here they are. TFL!!!

Happy 4th of July. I used Desinger Calander for the July 4. My dots embossing folder for the blus and I went over it with blue ink. The ribbon I don't have a clue where I got but I love it!
Back to school card was done with devine swirls. (My favorite embossing folder) again went over it with blue ink. I cut out the sentiment from the Designer Calendar cart.
Happy Halloween!! I love this card. I really can't remember which cartridges I used for this one. I believe the Ghost paper is from Debbie Mumm's Harvest & Holiday paper pack. And stickles on the pumpkin
I love how my little Indian Girl came out. I used PDDU
for this one and again the backgroud paper was from Debbie Mumm's Harvest & Holiday paper pack. Stickles were used on her headband and feathers.

This is a 3 1/2" x 7" card. I used stickles on the tree ornaments and the penguins scarf. The snowflake is a MS punch.

A hello kitty head for her birthday card. I used stickles to color in her eyes the same color as my step daughters.
Valentines Day Card using Hello Kitty Greetings. My husbands little 7 old cousin helped me with this one. She picked out the heart and the background paper. It has glitter dots all over it. We used stickles on the wings. So pretty.
Happy St Patrick's day. Using Designers Calendar again. I had to cut 2 in order to get the green shamrock. Then I used the stickles (Can you tell I am addicted to them) on the hat. I am not sure where the paper is from but I have a couple of sheets of it. (it was lose paper)
Easter card, I used the walk in my garden cart for the butterfly. Designer Calendar for the word "Easter" and for "happy" I had to use another cartridge but I really can't remember which one. it was. LOL Sorry. Paper again a single sheet. It has all these beautifully colored Gerber Daisy on it. It is gorgeous.

Mothers. Day Cards

Ok here are the cards I made for our mom's on Mothers day. TFL!!!!!

I made this one with the Wild Card Cartridge for my Cricut.

I love how the next two came out. I cut a 7" card and scored it at 3 1/2". Used my lacey punch from MS. and the flower is cut from Hello Kitty Greetings and I used my Divine Swirls embossing folder for the blue and pink. I also used some stickles on the leaf. So pretty
