Baby Shower Card

I'm going to a baby shower this afternoon.  I made this card to go along with her gift.  I used the Cricut New Arrival Cartridge for the onsie (cut at 3" ).  I just love that cut! :)

Snowman Soup, Anyone?

I was inspired by Bridget's Snowman Soup packages she made for her boys... they are ooooh sooo cute! For Doug's family Christmas at his parent's house each person has a stocking hanging on mantle. Each family brings something fun to stuff in the other stockings... it's an easy way to buy for everyone and it's always just fun little things. With the families quickly growing, buying everyone a big gift is too hard. So.. again, inspired by Bridget's cute idea, I made this one. Yes, I see the typo... luckily this was just a prototype and I only made the one, just didn't retake the photos! :)

This is the front:

Happy Holidays

This is my favorite card so far this year..

Christmas Card

I really liked how this one turned out, but I must admit, it went through several "drafts".. lol 


Christmas Bell

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas

A similar version, two different cards

The card on the right is a version of the card we made with Kimber McGray, I just changed the background, the card on the left is very similar... just a little of my own touch

A VERY simple Christmas Card

Just messing around... I've got to get my cards wrapped up.  This is so basic and not really my style.. but I just couldn't get my mojo going... I plan on getting more done later today.

tweaking my blog

I have been tweaking my blog. I changed the format.. first to a three column, then back to a two column, but with larger images... tell me what you think... can you see the sides on your screen? I added a different signature, deleted the post dividers and just a few other little tweeks.

Christmas Cards for the day

I messed around with a couple of cards today.  Couldn't get my mojo going.   The second card is my first attempt at using colored pencils with gamsol.  I really enjoyed the process, but definitely need some practice.

My Thanksgiving Blessing Mix

I made these to put on the table at each place setting.  They are really cute in person, the pictures look a bit washed out.  Each one contains a bag of blessing mix (Bugles, Pretzels, Raisins, Peanuts, M&Ms, Candy Corn).  Ashlea helped me assemble them today, so we're ready to go.

 We're having 17 guests for Thanksgiving, so it's good that they are done and out of the way

Christmas Card Class with Kimber McGray

I took a card class with Kimber McGray on Saturday.  Actually I took two classes.  This set of cards is from her Christmas Class.  Aren't they adorable!  I made these all during the class and they are all her designs, we just had to stamp and assemble.  Loved the class, hope she comes back again soon!

Everyday Cards Class with Kimber McGray

See the next post above this for the Christmas Card Class with Kimber

This was the second class with Kimber McGray.  Again, all her designs, we just stamped and assembled.  If you ever get a chance to take one of her classes, I highly recommend it.  Very laid back and casual and lots of great ideas.  I bought her new book which she signed.  It's her third book.  Amazing talent.
