A birthday card and bad photos!

I realized that I don't like how my photos look on my blog... so I am going to be working on taking better photos! It is my friends birthday so I made this really cute card for her. I also have been working on my bows as seen on this card, and I was given a quick tip from another person thanks Paper Jewels!

My Dream on Paper...

So I had this dream last night about making a card and when I woke up I had a clear image of the card in my mind. I jotted it down because I had to go to work and this is what I made when I got home.

It is a little different than the one in my dream, because the one in my dream was super big and really long, it had many more scallops and desgins on the front! This one is just the right size! (I LOVE the high heel shoe!!)

Did someone say party??

Party planning can be so stressful! I completely obsess about every detail. But when I look at these adorable party invitations… it melts my stress away! Invitations can really set the mood and excitement of an upcoming party. Image having one of these tacked to your fridge while waiting for the greatest party ever! These were made with my Cricut Cutter the Doodle Charm cartridge and the Wild Card cartridge. A little glue, a little sparkle and you have yourself an adorable invite!

This is one sided. Here is the front:

My Chicks Do as I Do!!

My little chicks do as I do, so they have been watching me on my Cricut and decided to pull out their Crayola Cutter machine and they have been hard at work!

This beautiful Earth Day Card was made by Chick #1

And this Thank Goodness School is almost out and Summer is Here card is from Chick # 2.
For Clarifications Chick # 1 is my first daughter and Chick # 2 is my second daughter. And they are chicks because they have always followed me around like little baby chicks!

How did I get started??

I owe it all to my husband I guess! I am not a scrap booker, but I have always enjoyed sitting down and doing some kind of craft. Nothing to serious, sewing, painting, play doh, whatever the kids would enjoy. So when it was my birthday and I opened up a big box that said Cricut, I just assumed there was something else inside. But there wasn’t it was the Provo Craft Cricut Expressions machine. I did not even know what it was so I just set it aside. A few months later I was feeling guilty that I wasn’t more appreciative of his gift so I took it out. And I’m addicted now! I have all these ideas in my mind and I can’t cut quick enough. I LOVE my cricut!! It gets a thumbs up!
