I wanted to do something a little different than the traditional "Thank You" card. I made a distressed Easel card it says "Hay there" " You're a doll".
Before I get into the cartridges I used this will be one of the cards we will be making in Cricut Class on Jan 15 in Northern California if interested please email me at email@example.com
So this card I used alot of pop dots along with Cricut cartridges Stamping, Country Life, Freshly Picked, TBB&M
I also used a few punches, my Peachy Keen Laughy taffy stamp set, Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, ink, bakers twine, stickles, Pink by design stamps and a distressing tool for the edges of the card!
Soooooo Im sure your here to win something right? How about one of my favorite things....A pack of letter size dark brown cardstock (pack of 25)! (used in this card) Please leave me a comment and become a follower if you like my work! thanks

I finally used my Yudu, but only had one emulsion sheet so I used vinyl and cut it in flip mode. I then applied it to the back.
Then just turned it over and used the squeegee and paint to write the names !!! I think they turned out great! I used Winter Woodland for the font.
The back on the screen with the vinyl and tape applied
This is the front right before I put the paint on.
Thanks for looking and hope you enjoyed ~

I'm also happy that my house is in order, Christmas presents are done and wrapped, now just to enjoy my kids and some holiday baking.
I wanted to share what my daughter Lily (5) made. I saw this on someones blog and now cant find it to give her credit :( I LOVE this because my daughter did everything except for taking it out of the oven !!!! She is so proud of herself.
Here are her turtles, only 3 ingredients! little pretzels, rolos and pecans!
so here's the recipe: place pretzels on cookie sheet w/ wax paper( I use silpats so they don't stick) Place a rolo on top of each pretzel in the middle bake on 200 degrees for 5 minutes, lightly press a pecan on the top. THAT'S IT !!! and YES they are YUMMY !!! Let them cool for a few hours before removing them so the chocolate will harden back up ( I read where putting them in the fridge is NOT recommended) Enjoy ~

First over at the Fantabulous Cricut we are having a super easy challenge to create ANYTHING with a ribbon! How easy is that? Be sure to link up your project by Sunday !!!
The second challenge was over at Peachy Keen whom I am in love with, their challenge was to make a holiday invitation, so I made this for a Christmas neighborhood light party with a quote from my favorite movie "Christmas Vacation".
The third challenge is for the Cricut Circle to incorporate the color black and something recycled.
This invitation/card was created with Jolly Holidays, Christmas Cheer, Stamping, and Create a Critter Cricut cartridges, also used was Peachy Keen Simple Simon and Everyday face stamps .
I used pop dots for the elf and the red backing, I also made the adorable PK faces shimmer on the bulbs with glossy accents !!!! Also and of course I used many different colors of stickles !! Enjoy~

This card is my first easel card and Erin was right they are alot of fun !!! For the Peachy Keen challenge I needed to have PK stamps of course, polka dots and be mostly white. Soooo whats white? SNOW! !!!
This card was a process LOL...mostly because I bought some Course glitter which is bigger than normal glitter. I made the snow with white ripped paper and inked it. Then for the snowflakes I embossed it using my Cuttlebug then added glue to all the snowflakes, snow hills, and trees then added course glitter to make it really sparkle !! (yep it was quite messy but I like the effect it gave)
For the cute snowgirl I used Peachy Keen Princess stamps (PK-640), Snow Friends cartridge and Fruit Punch stickles.
The trees and tags were cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge and a MPS stamp used.
I wanted to keep this card clean looking and I hope I achieved that!
thanks and Enjoy~
