Happy Birthday!

It is so nice to have some time off at Christmas!  I have not left my home for the past three days!  Who needs to leave when I have all the scrapbooking supplies to keep me busy for several months.  Well, okay a 50% Michaels coupon is a good reason to venture into the cold frigid air.

Anyway, here is a card I made for my brother's birthday next month.  The inspiration for the card was the Mojo Monday sketch. As you can tell from my posts I love the Cricut. I used the Sweet Treats cartridge for the cupcake and Accent Essentials for the rosette.  I inked the paper using Tim Holtz distressing inks. It is entered into the following challenges:

Let It Snow!

Well, here is yet another holiday card.  This one seemed to take forever as I kept changing things, such as first the background was white but it looked too stark.  I am happy with how the card turned out.  The snowflakes and paper are from Michaels.  I used the Cricut cartridge Stretch Your Imagination for the image.

Construction Invitation

A co-worker and I have decided to switch services.  From her I got this cute wooden Rudolph ornament (which my kids love) that her husband is making and selling, and I will be making her son's birthday invitations.  Below is the design I came up with.
