A friend just recently had her second girl so I created this card for her.  I will post later which Cricut cartridge I used.  The butterfly maker is from Creative Memories.  It is the perfect size for cards.

One of our nephews got engaged!  He proposed during sunset overlooking the bay on Cape Cod.  The lad can do romantic.

Next on the card creativity list is a birthday card for one of my Peeps.  I have got to have the most talented Peeps so I felt I needed to step the creativity up a notch.  The double mat is vellum, the top layer is cut from Ornamental Iron (I believe, I will double check) on the Cricut.  The paper used is from Creative Memories, from the Nancy O'Dell collection.  I love the soft muted colors.  I used sheer ribbon from Joanns Fabrics to make a triple bow.

This card is for a colleague of mine.  One of my Peeps is a huge Peachy Keen fan and stamped the smiley face for me.  I put Stickles on the candle, and the cupcake is on a bobble.  This card just makes me smile. :)

It's been awhile since I've updated my blog, here's what I've been up to.  The first is a Mother's Day card for my Mom.  A friend's husband made us wooden bow makers so I had to try it out.  That tool makes the best bows.

Money card envelope

My niece will be turning 17 next month and as with any teenager, she is hard to buy for, so I usually give her money as a gift.  When I came across a pattern for a pretty money envelope, I thought I'd give it a try.  I was disappointed that the inside liner didn't line up well with the envelope but I'll play with the directions a bit more.  I am hoping by the time she is opening the envelope she'll be so excited about the money she won't care the lining isn't perfect. :)
Many pieces on this set of cards was cut on the cricut from the same pattern from my gypsy, however  after finishing one card, the second card morphed out on it's own. lol  The one on the right was the first card, the one on the left the second.  I guess this is the best I can do making identical cards. hahaha

This card is for a sweet furball that I know who will be seven in June.  She is going to get a box of Trader Joe's gourmet doggie treats from me.

Got the card mojo going!

I've been away from my scrapping room for far too long.  First it was the holidays, the room became wrapping central, then I was under the weather but I've ventured back into my room, started to organize and straighten things up, and in between I've made a card or two.

This first card is for a colleague of mine who was recently deployed.  I wish him well, and a safe return.
