Card #5, Fishy Kisses....

from the Animal Kingdom cartridge....one I seldom use........

I used my I-Rock with the heart--I got a great price of the hearts after Valentines Day, and aqua 'bubbles' jewels.

The inside is a solid blue mat--stripe mat and solid white mat with aqua 'bubble' jewels!

Thanks for stopping by!


Card #4...All Wrapped Up...

From the Imagine cartridge All Wrapped Up....

I believe the stamp is from Mary @ Cardz TV.

And now for the inside.......

I just cut out the card in parts and added a mat on the inside with a plain mat of either a sentiment or a place to write a note.



Thanks for stopping by!

A couple of cards I forgot to post......

I know I'm in the middle of my challenge, but did these before I started them alphabetically!

Stamps from Close to my heart!

No Cricut cut, but I love this Sentiment!

Card for my brother-in-law--has a bleeding ulcer! :-(

This is from Country Life--my favorite cut from this cartridge!

Cuts from Art Philosophy!

Hope you like!




For my challenge--Card #3...A Child's Year!

This one reminds me of my sweet angel, Little Laura Lynn, who will be 20 in September!  LOL!

Such a sweet memory of playing dress-up and prancing around!

Inside of card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Card #2--Accents Essentials....

This was hard to decide on!

The outside with the stamp from Fiskars.

The inside of the card!

Moving on to card #3!


I'm challenging myself--card # 1...

I've challenged myself!  I can't remember the last time I used some of my cartridges, so I'm going to try and make a card from each cartridge.

Card #1--3 Bird's on Parade!

I love this little birdie (actually I love cupcakes!), and I used a stamp set from Mary at Cardz TV!

This is also a cut from the cartridge, on the inside of the card!
Thanks for stopping by!

Another Birthday card with Art Nouveau

The stamps are from a Fiskars birthday quotes, and the mats are from Elegant Edges.

A new cartridge--first cut I've used from this one--Art Nouveau cartridge.  The Vase was a lot of little pieces-two pinks and two greens--but was fun to see it come together.

The cupcake and flowers on the inside are mini-punches from EK--love them!

Thanks for stopping by!  I love comments!

Another an apple a day idea......

This is from the Country Life cartridge-another one I haven't used alot, and after flipping through the booklet, I see some new possibilities!

I made this for my mom, she's been having some health issues, and thought this might let her know my thoughts and prayers are with her.

I have so many ideas in my head--need more time!

Hope you enjoy looking around!

Have a blessed day!


An Apple a day...

I love this basket of apples.......
The basket is on page 116 of the Doodlecharm booklet.  I used ink to make it look 'used' and brads.  The apples are from page 118 in blackout and doodled some white dots on them.  Can be used as a friendship-love card or a get well card with the "an apple a day..." stamp from Mary's Cardz TV stamps.

I've been trying to look at some of my old cartridges and the Doodlecharm in my past has been neglected!  It has some darling cuts.  You may be seeing more from this cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by.....


Simple card

This is from my Art Philosophy cartridge.  I took the disposable cut-out and attached it to another card I cut out and added a rose.  Didn't get a pix of the card with the "love-bird" because my dau whisked it away for her boyfriend!

So simple!


Two quick Valentines

Two quick Valentines Day cards from my nieces twins.

Easy to make once I got the sizes set right.

Kinda plain for me, but I'm sure the $5 bill I slipped in behind
it made it look better! ;-)

Hugs, Storylady!

The Buccaneer....

 Terry's best friend is celebrating a birthday this month.  Not only has he been a best friend to my dear hubby, he has been a serigate father to my daughter!  He is a wonderful guy and is greatly love by our family.

I couldn't decide which page to be the front or the inside, so I let dear hubby decide...he chose this as the front of the card....

I can't remeber exactly what I cut it at, I know I couldn't use the 1st one on an A2 card.

This guy was so much fun.  The face, hat, bottle and cuffs are all popped up on pop-dots and are so cute.  The sentiment was suppose to be Arrgg-but I had this stamp that seem to fit perfect.

Hope u all enjoy!

Another Birthday Card...

I made this card from the Yummy Imagine cartridge.  After I took the picture, I added some bling to the upper right corner and the lower left corner.

This is the inside.  I love decorating the inside.  I added the little party hat in the corner.

Hope you enjoy. 

Playing with some of my Imagine carts......

I was a little disapointed in the Greeting Cards Inside/Out, but made a few cards today, and changed my mind. I will post the other on tomorrow.

This is the front of the card and I printed and cut at fit to page.

This is a gift card holder and fit in an A2 size enveloe.  How cool is this!  No more fiddling around making a gift card holder card.  I think there are more on the cartridge also.

It's Been How Long?

I made hubby's Valentine card today.  Earlier I did 10 using the same cuts but with different embellishments and papers, but they all look so different.  Hubby and I have been married for over 40 years, and we don't to mushie--we do sincere!  So this is what I came up with....

The lemons are cut at 1.8 on the front of the card and one I used the 'flip' option.  I lemons are from the Preserves cart.  The inside lemon was cut at 2.5.  The heart is from Doodlecharms cart and I think the one on the front is about 2.5 and the inside ones are about .3!  Small--I love my Imagine for those small cuts!  I use a Imagine cart to cut the color on the lemon and hearts.  I used Lemon Flower DCWV paper for the mats.  The sentiments are from my new stamps from Mary at Cards TV--love them!
