Happy St. Patrick's Pop Up Box card

This is my 1st try at one of the fun pop up cards! I love how it turned out :)
I altered the cut file from the Silhouette Store by artist Lori Whitlock for the inside holder panels.
The 3 eyed monster is from Lettering Delights Mean and Grrreen cut it set.
Thanks for looking :)

Happy Birthday!

this is a quick card for my youngest daughter Ashton :) I didn't actually have it done in time for mailing or personal delivery.

I used Elegent Edges (loops) for the matting and resized the project idea shown in the cricut book to a card from a 12x12 layout. I used CardzTv stamps for the sentiment cut into a banner. The image is colored with my Copics. I cut the image with my Silhouette.

Hedgies have a special place in her heart and one day she will have one! but for now, Penny Black supplies them :)

card stock is from stash as is the ribbon.

Happy Birthday Ashton!!
Hugs and Love, Mom

Valentine Card

 photo B1322FD9-EE42-4C52-AD6E-DC08167334A4_zpsicdcbqob.jpg1st Happy Valentine Card for 2014

 I started making a few cards today, and this one has been on my list to do for awhile. I saw similar cards last year and had it on my TO DO List for this year.
I am really pleased how it turned out.
The silhouette is from A Childs Year Cartridge cut at 2.25. The white large doily is from 
Art Philosophy cut at 4.75. The small doily is a 2.25 die  from Taylored Expressions.
I also use an embossing folder by Darice called Hearts :). The Arrow is from the CCR digital images pkg called Arrows. I cut this at 1 inch and then cut into 2 pieces so I could fit it on the card which is 5.5 x 5.5. The mini hearts were cut and punched from various other cartridges using the CCR and my E2 and a Studio G mini punch.
The corners of the black mat were punched with a punch by All Night Media that I had in my collection.
All papers were from my stash and most from AC Moore and Michaels.

Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy :)

Have a great week everyone!

Rosette Goof Ups...

turned out pretty! well, at least I think so :)
The intent was to be part of the Rosette Christmas tree shown on the Close To my Heart Holiday brochere. I ended up putting the rosette together with the decorative side on the inside glued...bahhhhhh
I wanted to do a pre run with different papers before cutting the intended CLMH ones. I goofed not just once, but twice and I definately burned my fingers with the HOT GLUE!
I added a few sequins and a pretty dimensional flower sticker by K C & Co. that was in my stash to each of them and a tulle hanger with a bow.
Here's the result :) thanks for looking
