A huge thank you to Audrey for her kindness.

Wow! I received another Sunshine award this morning from Kelley at http://confessionsofacrazycrafter.blogspot.com/
Thank you so much Kelley... If you have not visited Kelley's blog, stop by. She has some awesome cards and amazing talent.

Another card...

I created this card for a woman who is dealing with Breast Cancer surgery. It was done through the Cricut Card Fairies. In creating all the cards I am making, I am trying hard to use scraps and cartridges that I never use. For this card I used George to create and cut all the shapes and the Hugs title was done using the Candice Font with my Pazzles. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the lower edge of the card.

I created the following cards using Design Studio and the Dreams Come True and Happily Ever After cartridges. The first one only uses Dreams Come True and the second card uses both. These cards were made by me as a part of the Cricut Card Fairy group. The cut files for both cards are below the pictures of the cards.

Hello Mailbox Card

I'm having a lot of fun doing Cynthia's challenge to use Doodlecharms cuts. I decided to use the mailbox and weld the words hello or howdy to the mailbox to make cuts for cards. I have included the cut file with all four font cartridge cuts included. I used Ashlyn's Alphabet, Old West, George and Plantin Schoolbook. Below are samples of the cuts you will find. I also included a cut to create a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card and the front of card that can be cut in patterned paper if you choose.

Below is a picture of a card using the Ashlyn's Alpahbet part of the cut file.

Below is a picture of a card using the cut file with the Old West Cartridge.

Have a Sunshine Day card...

Today on the Cricut Board there was a challenge from Cynthia to create something only using cuts from Doodlecharms. As I have never used my Doodlecharms cartridge, I thought it would be fun to do this challenge. We could use any other cartridge for the font so I used Base Camp. I welded the words to the Sun using the Shadow feature. I then cut the sun and letters in regular size and pieced together. I thought it would make a cute and happy card. The pattern paper is also cut from Doodlecharms.

Two new cards

I created two new cards today as a Cricut Fairy to send to a boy 9 and a little girl 7. It was fun making these. The boy likes sports so I designed the bear and basketball in Paint Shop Pro and imported into my pazzles. The paper for the basketball is basketball textured paper from JoAnn's. It almost feels like a rubbery paper. The little girl's card was created using Mickey & Friends and my cricut.

Barnyard Bunch

This layout was created by me using Paint Shop Pro to draw all pieces as vector designs. I then imported into my Pazzles machine to cut and piece the pieces. It was a fun layout to do. I enjoy the aspect of designing more than anything and am thrilled that I can now use a cutting machine to cut my own creations.

Puppy Card...

I created the following card using my Pazzles machine. I first drew the puppy sitter in Paint Shop Pro and saved the file. I then used Pazzles to trace the image and cut it. It was fun to make this card.

Making Cards...

I have been busy making cards to send to special folks through the Cricut Card Fairies and below are some I have made. If you are interested in joining the Cricut Card Faires - check out this link...

The first card design was scraplifted from my good friend Karen's design. I used Design studio and my Cricut to cut all the shapes.

This card was done by me using a vector file I created and then imported into my pazzles machine.

This card was also done by drawing the file as a vector file and then importing into my Pazzles machine.

Mug Cup Card with Cut Files

First off... HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! My sweet hubby got me a huge box of chocolates that he said I could eat while pondering in my scrap room. He said whenever he walks by my room it looks like I am in deep thought. He said he figured I was trying to figure out what it is I'm trying to accomplish. LOL!!! He does know me well.

I made a couple of cards to send to Capadia's neighbor's children who experienced a fire in their home. I added a packet of Hot Chocolate in each card. If you would like to send a card, please visit Capadia's site and go down toward the end of the page to find the info...

I created this card in the following formats: WPC, WPC14.
Here is a picture of the cut file.. Here are the cut files...
