Hubby's Valentine's card

Well, I totally went un-traditional for me this year!  I am more a cute-sy type gal, with hearts and romantic type themes... but I bought this embossing folder, that looks like a tree, and I thought this would be perfect for an "olde fashioned" look...Using Sweethearts, I cut the couple silouettte at 4" and VOILA!  The simplest card yet!  My Hubby will look at it and say, "that's nice..." but I think it is just a s cute as any card I could buy in the store... that will probably be tossed anyways...Hahahahaha
As always, so glad you stopped by to take a peek...

Valentines-Candy Bar Sliders

I always have a tough time coming up with Valentine ideas!  I went with an old classic... the Candy Bar slider...  They are easy to make, and who doesn't like a little chocolate for Valentines?  I cut out the cute little frog from Paisley at 2.75"...I think they turned out kind of cute!!  Thanks for looking...

Nuts!

Work has been "NUTS" lately!  My staff has been very busy the past several weeks, and I thought I would make something for them to let them know how appreciative I am with all their hard work!
I used the "Peanut Man" from Create a Critter... as he was probably the main reason I bought this cartridge...I cut him at 3" with layers... Filled up little white bags I bought at Michael's and filled with some healthy/not healthy "NUTS!"
I have to mail 4 of them, so I didn't want them too big or clunky!!  What do you think?

Cafe gift box

Now about how cute are these... I bought the cartridge for this cut really, it reminds me of a Starbucks cup- which you could replicate very easily... however, I wanted a "softer" look, so I stayed with the original cut and made it soft pink and browns.  I am always in need of a quick "Thank- You" or Birthday gift.  I used Holiday Spring Cards for the boxes, cut at 4.25 and the cafe cup cut at 4.87.  Perfect for a gift card from Starbucks!!

Love you a Latte...

I have been wanting this cartridge since it came out... and now, I have it!!  So many little fun cuts on it if you like Coffee or Tea.  I decided to make a card, using this particular cut.  I welded the base together, really just a long rectangle would do, and then cut the layers and put this quick card together.  I made a couple of cards.  I thought about making an extra card each time I make one, as it is so nice to have an arsenal of cards to choose from, when you are in a hurry!
Thanks for looking...

Grasshopper!

OK, you have to admit, these are kind of cute!  I have had my eye on this little Grasshopper for sometime... and I finally, decided to cut him out! Once cut, I had no idea what to do with him... I wanted to put him on something...so here he is:  Hahahahha... one can not have too many cards... even though I am not a big card maker!!  Stretching It (?) was the cartridge used...I make up my own names sometimes...hahaha

Running Shoes- Princess style

Well, it seems I can't go too long without making something to do with running!  I wish Cricut would make a running cartridge or someone would come up with a line of stamps that incorporated running... I would rush to buy...
Using Rock Princess... I cut these shoes welding them to make a card.  I have lots of friends that run, and it would be fun now and then to send them something special for a race or encouragement... so I thought I would try and make a few running cards here and there to have on hand...What do you think?
