I bought a Cricut Explore about 3 weeks ago, hoping it would help me get motivated and make more cards.'s still in the box!  Haven't even opened it yet!  What the heck is wrong with me??  As soon as I am done with this post I am going to my craft room and I'm going to open that box up and check it out!!  Oh.... please don't mention this post to my husband because he doesn't know I got this!!


I made this Christmas card with cherry cobbler and whisper white cardstock from SU.  I used an embossing folder that I think is called Ivy.  The pointsettia is a die from (let me think)............I don't remember, sorry.  Lol, this sure helps a lot, doesn't it.  But I do remember the die itself is blue in color!!  Before you know it the holidays will be upon us.  I need to make more!

Congratulations Graduate!

I made this card for a great nephew of mine.  He graduated from high school.  I used an embossing plate from Papertrey Ink for the circle background and a very old stamp set.  I don't even know who it was from.  I had some metal alphabet letters left over from another project and just happened to have the right letters for his name.  His school colors were black and red.  Hope you like it.

Baby Shower

Here is a card I made for my daughter's baby shower.  I believe I used the "Sugar and Spice" Cricut cartridge for the pea pod.  Stamped the background heart and used a heart embossing folder for the background.  Used a coral color cardstock from Stampin Up.

Love and Sympathy

I made a sympathy card using the love and sympathy stamp set from Stampin Up.  I also used the honeycomb embossing folder and cajun craze for the color.  Gosh, I believe the flowers were from another Stampin Up set but I can't remember which one.  That is what happens when I wait too long to post something.  I can't remember what I used.  Sorry!  Anyway, here is the card.  Hope you like it.'s June!

Well, here it is......June 2014.  And the middle of June too!!  I have made a few cards but for some reason have not posted them.  I know....that sucks!!  Life has been full of adventures lately that have kept me really busy.  But please stay tuned and you just might find something you like.  :)
