Friends are........PRICELESS!!!!

Hello everyone!! I made this card this afternoon, and I hope you like it!! I know I looooove it!! True friends are really priceless, and what better way to show them so by giving them this beautiful card!! This card was made with the cartridges Lyrical Letters, Wild Cards, and Graphically Speaking. The card and the border were both made from the "Wild Cards" cartridge, and were cut at 5" each. The word "Friends" was cut from the "Graphically Speaking" cartridge at 2". Now, keep in mind that in this cartridge you only get the word "friend", so I cut the extra "S" from the "Graphically Speaking" cartridge word "so".  The "Priceless" tag was also cut from "Graphically Speaking" at 1". The border for the priceless tag was hand cut to act as a border around the tag. I punched a hole in the top of the tag, as well as, the  top of the card, and tied a ribbon so that the tag would free float.

The "are" shown in the picture here was cut from "Lyrical Letters" at 1". I added pink rhinestones to accent the periods here. I also accented the bottom of the card with some glitter foamies I bought at Michaels.

On the inside of the card I placed a 4" x 4" lighter purple square for your written message.

Here is the completed card!! Its is a really easy, great card to give to a very special friend!! Hope you enjoyed!!

A Little play time for Halloween!!

Here are a few things I was just palying around with today. I will give the details for each ite below!!

This is one of my favorites. I just got my stretch your imagination cartridge yesterday and I have been waiting for over 3 weeks for it. I guess thats what you get from some ebay people. (not all are bad thoug  :)  ) Anyways, this is an invitation card I made with that cartridge. I cut the card out at 4". I then found some glitter sticker letters that I have had for a loooonnngg time and decided to use them. I found some orange ribbon and wrapped it around the one side of the card inside and out, and glued it down. I added a orange button that I just sewed on for looks, and to hide the cut peice. You can always tie it or make a bow, but I wanted something different. I hand wrote the invitation specifics all around the inside corners, and placed please come right in the middle so that when you close the card, you would see no writing.

Here I used the hello kitty cartridge. I will be using him in a scrapbook page for the kids. Just thought he was too cute to leave out!!

This is a treat bag that I made for halloween. These are great bags to give kids when they knock at your door, or to just give out as party favors!! Just fill them up sith candy!! I bought the black bags at Michaels, and they were $3 and some change without a coupon. They have all colors and sizes!! So if you have other bags in mind they can work for you!! I basically just cut a cardstock paper to fit the size of the bag and glued it on. I then cut letters with shadows and glued them on. then I placed a bat and a tombstone with a ghostly ghost on!! Really simole and easy to make!! I have others in mind and will share them once they are made!! Hope you enjoyed these small out of no where fun crafts!!

Hey everyone!! Well, today I decided to play, and this is what I made!!

I used the Wild Cards Cartridge to make this card. I love owls!! Isn't it cute!! I used K & Comapny design paper to cut the outer part of the owl out, and I used regular brown cardstock to cut the base of the owl card out. I cut my owl out at 5".
I then

I then cut out, from a lighter shade of cardstock, a 3.5" circle to place on the inside for writing. I got the circle from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.

I then started to accent my owl. I took a thin brown ribbon and tied it through the middle of the card, giving it a bow along the side. I then took glitter glue ( " My Bling-Bling" ) And decorated the peices that I pulled away from the card, thus giving it some definition. I also applied glitter glue to the eyes and the nose, for more accent!!

Hope you all enjoyed this one!! I know I did!! I had tremendous amounts of fun on this one!!

Hey everyone!! I just got my new cricut rewards free cartridge!! I recieved the Cricut Sampler cartridge today, and I'm sooooo excited!!! So I thought I would take the time to share the book with you guys so you could see exactly what was inside!! We all know there is more in the book than the back cover reveals!! Its a really cute cartridge, and I hope you all enjoy taking a peek inside!! To get a really good close up look, just click on the picture, and it should show you a big version of it.

Hi everyone!! This is a card I made today. It is an inspirational card!! I went to Michaels today to pre-order my Gypsy, and I'm soooooo excited!! While I was there, of course I had to use my 50% off coupon, I bought the DCVW Mi Casa stack paper!! I have been wanting that stack for weeks now. So I decided to make a card!! So here it is folks!!
I cut the letters and the butterflies out by lyrical letters cartridge. I used glitters glue to accent the butterflies also. The letters were cut out at 1", and the butterflies were cut out at 3.5" and  5".  For the base under the butterflies, I used the pocket full of posies matstack by DCVW. I did not have to cut this peice, but depending on the size of your card you may have to.

I used my new Mi Casa stack for the border at the bottom of the card.

Here are all the supplies featured in my card and what I used to put it all together!! I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my card!! I can't wait for the holidays!! I will have tons of things on here for you to see, so keep checking back with me for more fun ideas!!
