Die Cuts R Us - Challenge 36

Here is my entry for the Diecutsrus challenge Double Duty. I decided to make two cards using the Create a critter cartridge that I am completely in love with. I have nearly made my way across the top line of the keypad. Still a ton more to create but it is so much fun. I hope that you like them.

Sketch and Stash Challenge 34

I have made this weeks card using my new Whimsy Sentiments collection stamps with My Basic Grey Ambrosia papers. My neglected item is the Papermania Butterfly stamp that I have used and also the flocking that is on top of the butterfly. I also used a technique that can be found at Above Rubies Studio to create the centre of my flower. The video shows how to create large flowers for on scrapbook pages but I just used a small piece of my left over paper to create the centre.

Anyways here is my card. x

Sketch and Stash Challenge 33

This is my entry for the Sketch and Stash challenge. I decided to pull out some old papers that I "needed" and then never used to complete this card. I think that it turned out pretty well.

Create a critter Cartridge

I am completely in love with this cartridge. I am planning on making a card with every critter on the cartridge. Here are a few of the cards that I have made.I am selecting my cards with the cute critters to enter momos challenge.
This last card that I have made is an accessory to one of the critters on the cartridge.

Hubbys Birthday Cards

Here are the cards that I made using my Cricut for my Hubbys Birthday. I used the Soccer Cartridge and the Once upon a princess cartridge. I hope that you like them. The Daddy card backing paper is from American Crafts and I think matches the cupcake nicely.

Die Cuts R Us - Suprise Challenge and others

I am really enjoying taking part in these challenges and I hope to be able to find others as it is so exciting working to a specification rather than just messing about with stuff.

I hope that you like it.

Sweetie Jar for Emilee's friends Birthday

I love making a gift rather than buying one for the friends of my children. I made a sweets jar for Emilee's school friend who was 7 yesterday. I also made her a really cute cupcake card using my craft robo/silhouette and some stickles.

Easter Bonnets

Last Satuday I spent the morning making two easter bonnets, One for my Daughter and one for my son Every year I never know what to make and sort of see just how they turn out. I think that this year they turned out quite nicely.
The two of them both seemed to like them so I think that they were a success.
 The rain managed to stay off long enough for the parades to take place so that was good too.
All the kids seemed to really enjoy taking part.

Mothers Day Cards

Here are a couple of pictures of the Mothers Day Cards that I created this year. I hope that you like them.
The Embellishments are from two different K&co Die cut collections. The Blue are from the Tim Coffey, Blossomwood Collection and the pink are from The Handmade collection. I love both collections and made a number of cards with them and still have tons left.

Mothers Day, Cards and Basket

I have been so busy this month with Mothers Day cards, Easter Bonnets, Easter cards and treats and I am finally coming to the end of my creations for easter week.

Mothers Day was really nice as my daughter made her Brownie Promise at church it was really special and she loved being the centre of attention with her friends. After Church we went out to Ladyheyes in Frodsham for lunch and I spent my mothers Day pennies on craft goodies at Crab Apple crafts. 

I had made a basket of goodies for my Mum and Gill to share and they both were really pleased with all their favourite things included, DVD's, wine, Chocolates, Perfume, Slippers etc. I was really pleased at how it turned out as it was a first attempt at Basket Making.

I have decided to make some little buckets with treats for easter and I am going to wrap them in Cellophane too and make them look special.
I still have some Easter cards to make and then finish off the buckets and I think that I will be done. I will upload the pictures when they are done later
