BRrrrr! It's cold in Georgia today. We had freezing temps last night, and it's supposed to be back in the high 70s by the weekend. There's a saying here in Georgia, "If you don't like the weather today, wait until tomorrow, it'll change." LOL!!
While you're here I want to share a birthday card I created with the oldie but goodie, Create A Critter Cricut cartridge. It's a Birthday Birdie!
I used papers from Echo Park's Beautiful Life 6x6 paper pad along with Stampin Up cardstock. I went outside of my comfort zone a little on this one and added a few extra embellishments.
I even decorated the inside with a couple of brads and left over scraps from what was used on the front.
I figured why stop there? I had a gift to go along with the card so I used the card (slipped in a plastic envelope) to attach to the front of the bag and a tag using an oval shaped die and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to decorate it.
This card and gift bag was easy to create and the recipient really loved it. :-D I love when that happens!!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope y'all have a great weekend!!

Here today to share a few awesome little Easter Treat bags! We're going to have a few guests this Easter Sunday and there will be a couple of little ones in the bunch, so I wanted to have a few treat bags ready for kiddos.
Using scrap papers from a 12x12 Bo Bunny Back to Basics sheet and papers by Stampin Up, I was able to create these pretty quickly.
I just love having Action Wobbles to add to projects like these. The kids will love them and they are a great way to captivate our young guests while they're visiting. If you're going to whip up a few Easter cards and projects why not add Action Wobbles.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a fabulous rest of your weekend!!!

Remember earlier this year, I said I was going to start sharing more of myself? You may have wondered why I haven't been posting papercraft projects as often, that's because its takes two hands and quite some time to KNIT! I've been knitting in most of my free time. Sometimes after work the last thing I want to do is put my hands on a computer and that's where knitting comes in.
What's on my knitting needles now...
What's on my knitting needles now...
An Afghan!!! Here's a quick picture of the start of the project. I casted on 107 stitches to get started. Talk about counting sheep!! Well, in this case counting Alpacas!
Once I got going you can start to see the pattern form. This is a basket weave pattern and it should turn out really nice. Sorry the colors are a bit off but it's the same project, just my camera behaving badly.
Here's another picture of more of it done...remember, afghans are huge...this one will measure approximate 50" x 60" when finished.
I'll be sure to keep you all posted on my progress.
Thanks for taking time to stopping by today!!

Hello there Crafty Peeps!
Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a really nice weekend. I did a little craft hauling and couldn't wait to start playing with some of my new goodies. I'm on a birthday card kick. I don't have any birthday cards in my stash. I have a couple of birthdays coming up in the next few weeks and thought I'd get crackin' on some cards. Here's one I created for one of my managers.
I love this image from My Favorite Things stamp set called Cheers. I colored the image with my Copic markers and added a little Wink of Stella to to glass for a little sparkle. It doesn't really show on this image but believe me, it's super cute!! The papers are from Stampin Up and Papertrey Ink.
I'm really enjoying playing around with my stamps and markers and you just might be seeing more. Later this week I'm going to share a peek at what's on my knitting needles. Hope you all have a great day!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Yes its me, back on my blog today to tell you about the newest challenge over at Cut It Up Challenge Blog! Our challenge #42 is Easter!!! Here's the card I created for the challenge.
I used paper from Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pad called Primrose. I was in the mood to color the other night and this cute little stamp I got at JoAnn last year was easy enough to cover. I used the Stitched Circle Die by My Favorite Things for my colored image and added a few flowers to accent the circle.
I did a flag banner for the sentiment using My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments stamp set. The brad embellishment is from the Primrose coordinating Broches set. Like always we have fabulous sponsors and for this challenge we have
Offering a Coupon Code of $20.00
and we also have

Back on my blog today with a birthday card! Check out this big elephant! I thought this elephant was a great image to go along with the sentiment.
I used my Cricut to cut this cute elephant from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge and adding an Action Wobble adds to the big celebration!!
Wobbling like that, he best keep one eye open! Action Wobbles are a lot of fun and you have to get yourself some. Action Wobbles are always available at the Royal Castle Shoppe!
Thanks for stopping by today and see you back here tomorrow for more Action Wobble inspiration.
