Cupcake Card

My daughter has a birthday party to go to this weekend and I thought I would try making a shape card as I have seen so many cute cards on the net.  I used some of my new ribbon and bling that I got at Michaels on clearance a few weeks ago.

Valentine's Crackers

I wanted to make a quick gift for my daughter's classes at her schools so I came up with these crackers.  They were really fast to make.  I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the phrase and the Peachy Keen stamp for the face.  Inside I put some Valentine's candy.  I am having so much fun crafting that I am already planning what I will make for Easter!  My daughter is enjoying helping me create the projects also.

Love Bug

Well, time to get ready for the next holiday!  I wanted to try out my new cartridge Create a Critter.  I debated for a long time whether to purchase this cartridge or not, but after I kept seeing all of the cute projects others have made I caved.  This is the first time I am also putting ribbon and a bow on a card.

Make a Wish

Time for the first challenge of the year!  I used the Mojo Monday sketch.   I find working from a sketch so much easier, so this card came together fairly quickly.  I used paper from Michaels, bling from the $1 store, and the Sweet Treats cricut cartridge for the wording.
