Create A Critter Monkey

This evening I went to Cricut Club at Craft Warehouse. It was about layering and they used CREATE-A-CRITTER!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this cart!!!! I have had it for a week but hadn't gotten a chance to use it yet. After tonight's club meeting I HAD to make SOMETHING!
I decided to make a card for my niece. Her favorite color is BLUE and she collects MONKIES so I thought she would really like this.

Good Friends are like Chocolate!

These cocoa cards went like hot cakes! I think I made about 10 of these. My Mom almost didn't get this stamp set back. :)
I used the chocolate chip stamp and stamped the edge of the card, the corner of the inside and the envelope flap. The stamp says "Good Friends are like Chocolate, something to be Savored" I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page for the lacy part around the cocoa mug.

Kitty Birthday Card

A lady at work requested a Birthday card for a friend of hers who loved kitties so this is what I came up with.

Valentine Cards

I made these Valentine cards to sell this year.

Cards from 2009

Since I just recently started this blog I have a lot of pictures of things I have made that obviously are not posted on here. I thought I would post a bunch of the cards I made from 2009. They won't have the recipe to them but enjoy....
**Christmas card I made for my Uncle and Aunt.
**Christmas cards I made for my nephews.
**Just a card I made. I LOVE it!!

**Baby boy card

**Blank note cards for my boss.

**Sympathy card I made for my Uncle when his Daughter passed.

**Card I made for my Grandmother.

**Baby card for my Cousin's first baby.

**Father's Day card for Daddy.

**Baby Card for a dear friend.

**Birthday card for a Lady at work.

Pearl, Rhinestone B-let, Lilacs & Tea cup

I took some more pictures and picked them up from Walmart last night. I really liked them when I uploaded them but they printed so much better! This is my FAVORITE one I have taken. I had it printed at 5x7 but I think I am going to print this one at 8x10 and have it the main picture the smaller ones go around. My boss suggested I use them on my cards. I think I am going to have this one printed smaller for some Mother's Day cards. I don't know how it would look but maybe have velum over the top. I can picture it but am not sure how it will actually look. I will post a picture once I make them. Have a Wonderful Sunday!!!

Lilacs, Pearls, Lace and Rhinestones

I stopped at Mom's on my way home from work and cut a big bouquet of Lilacs. MMmmm...the house smells so good!!!! While there I also raided her jewel box for colored broaches (since all I have are clear). I put a small vase of lilacs in my bathroom and when I started to take some pictures I grabbed some. I am really liking this grouping. Here are the ones I liked the best! My cameral battery died while taking pictures so I am now waiting for my battery to charge.

Lace and Pearls

I want to re-do my bathroom. My bathroom has pink and white tile counter top and shower so I decided I want a fru-fru girly bathroom. I could not find any pictures I really liked or if I did find something I liked then I certainly couldn't afford them. SO I decided to take my own pictures and have them framed. Here are a couple of the better pictures that I took this morning.

I think I am going to go take some close ups of some of my old rhinestone broaches. I have some old perfume bottles so maybe I will try and see what I can come up with.

I sure hope the bathroom turns out like I see it in my head.
