{so} thoughtful


hello! Here again with another card, this time a thank you card. You can never seem to enough of these on hand. This card is for this week’s card challenge from Cas-ual Fridays Blog.


I used my new wood grain plate from Paperink to emboss the white card stock. I used my Cricut to cut the butterfly, it’s from the Paper Lace Cartridge. And I stamped the sentiment.


Penguin Challenge


After a long break I’m back and ready for some card challenges! Yay! And I’ve got a lot of new goodies to try. Bring it! This week I’m entering the Cas-ual Fridays Blog challenge, CFC#36 Penguin Suit. This challenge allows you to use only black and white, *no other colors will be allowed-not even a speck*.


I cut the scroll design using the Botanicals cartridge and added glossy accents to the edges to add depth. I also cut some butterflies, layered them with vellum and added glossy accents to them as well. /blockquote>


CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 30 part 2


I had so much fun with this challenge that I made another card for the CAS-ual Fridays Blog. This time I chose aqua, Kraft, and scallops.


I cut the ornament with the Christmas Cheer cartridge. I embossed the Kraft paper with a beautiful snowflake folder. I added a deep aqua ribbon and stamped the sentiment. Hope you enjoy.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 30


Hello! Here with a card for the CAS-ual Fridays blog challenge. It’s a really fun challenge this week, bingo! You have to choose three squares either across, in a row, or diagonally, just like bingo. I chose green, stripes, and scallops.


The tree is from the Christmas Cheer cartridge, but I was disappointed with how thin the detail cut was on the inside, I was hoping you would see more of the beautiful green paper. So I had to improvise and I kinda of curled up the cut to hopefully get more contrast. I made the little scalloped medallion using my gypsy. I also used some beautiful glitter papers that I got from JoAnn’s.


CAS-ual Fridays Blog Challenge #29


Here again with another Christmas card for another challenge. My sister told me about this blog, CAS-ual Fridays, it very cute and the design team is very talented. I had a lot of fun completing their sketch challenge for this week.


I used my new snowflake embossing folder which I got this weekend from JoAnn’s for 75%+ off! I cut the snowflake from my Wrap It Up cartridge with beautiful glittery paper. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom with with ink.



Kept it simple on the inside with a Merry Christmas that I welded together using my gypsy and the gypsy font and more snowflake embossed paper.

365 Cards’ Sketch Challenge 265


Hello! I made another Christmas card! I tried to make this card during a sister craft day, but between the wine and teaching my sisters how to use the Cricut I got little day that day. :) Oh well, we clearly had fun. But I did kinda of get to plan this card out.



I made this card for 365 Cards’ Blog Sketch Challenge 265 and I found this sketch really fun to work with. I was also greatly inspired by the design team, you should check them out. I cut the snowflake using my Cricut and the Accent Essentials cartridge and I cut the “Joy” from the Create a Critter cartridge. I used gorgeous glitter aqua paper and a really cute retro star burst paper.



365 Cards Sketch


Hello again! Here with another Christmas card for another challenge. I completed this card for the 365 Card Blog sketch challenge. I really had to play with this card to get it together. I’m embarrassed to say, it took me two days to finish. But its done, phew!


I used my Cricut to cut of the big ticket shape using the George and Simple Shapes cartridge. I texturized the background and brown medallion using a cuttlebug folder and my pasta maker. I stamped the sentiment using a stamp I just got at Michaels for .50 and red ink.



For the inside, I welded together “Merry Christmas” using the Gypsy Wanderings font. Thanks for checking out!
