Love Link up Party - Getting Cricky with K. Andrew

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to mention that Getting Cricky is having a link up party you can visit HERE for the details. Have a great Day!

Carrot Box and Bunny!

Hi Everyone!

I have been trying to come up with an idea for gift bags/boxes for Easter, and then I saw a great idea on the Chic n Scratch website. Well I did not have any of the products or machines needed so I went to my gypsy and created my own petal cone box. It was pretty easy! You need the George Cart and that's about it. You can look at the shape of hers and see that it is merely a triangle and circle welded together (kind of like an ice cream cone).  Next I cut a bunny from the doodlecharms cart, but first I welded the bunny ears to the egg shape. The rest of the shapes(circles and ovals) were from the George Cart. too. I added some stickles to the ears and feet, PKS for the face, yellow ribbon around the bunny ear and paper crimped the whiskers and carrot top. Lastly, I added a scalloped circle to the top of the box and wrapped it with twine to hold tightly. I plan to enter a few challenges with my carrot box. Hope you enjoy!
Creative Sisters Monday Challenge - Make something with a  bunny.
Cricut Cardz Challenge - Create something for Easter.
Jens Craft Corner - Make anything that fits with the bunny theme.
Creative Cutter Room - Make something using the 4 elements of the blog hop.
Paper Cutz Challenge - Make a card, LO or craft project using a hand stamped, digital stamped or Cricut cut image of a bunny, lamb, chick or Easter eggs.

Love is in the Air - April Showers

Hi Everyone!

So many great challenges this week! I decided to participate in a few. My card looks simple but I had to piece it together because I didn't have a rain jacket on any of my cartridges.  I used the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge for the jacket.  I used the George cart. and created the cuffs, collar, pocket, and buttons with shapes using my gypsy. The umbrella & puddle are from Create a Critter and the splash drops are from Indie Art. The paper is K&Co & recollections.  The sentiment is a Studio G stamp and face is PKS. I used glossy accent on the jacket and final touches with my white gel pen. 
Whew..... Hope you enjoy.

Here are the challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut - April Showers - create a project using an umbrella or hat.
The Paper Variety - April Showers bring May Flowers
Get Inspired with Chatterscene - April Showers - Go visit Chris she offers some great inspiration and has some great giveaway.

Thank You Card

Hi Everyone!

What a weekend!  My hubby and I spent the weekend in Napa. It was an experience of a lifetime.  First we had dinner with my Dad at Bottega and I got to have my picture taken with the one and only Micheal Chiarello.... Second, we stayed at the Hotel Yountville (Fabulous). Third, we saw a comedian at the Uptown and last but certainly not least we had dinner at the French Laundry. There are no words to describe this eating experience. SENSATIONAL.....

Now for my card, I wanted to send a couple of thank you's for the weekend. Here is the first one. It was made without the Cricut.  The paper is from KI memories and Recollections.  I machine stitched the yellow paper, heat  embossed "Thank You" and added some ribbon.

CREATIVE TIME FOR ME - Cricut-less and follow sketch
CARD CUPIDS - Use Dots and/or stripes
