You Blow Me Away! using Cardztv Stamps

Happy Saturday!!!

Is the wind blowing in your neck of the woods?  The weather is warm here....but the March winds have arrived early!!

Here is a card I made using the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge and Cardztv Stamps.

I love to make easel cards!  How do you like the pinwheels?   To celebrate the arrival of warmer weather, I will give away a couple of packages of the most adorable flowers so that you can make your own pinwheel card.  Just leave me a comment and a way to get in touch with you.  I will select a winner on Monday, February 24th!

Happy Birthday Card

Hello Everyone!!!

I have been making cards like crazy!  Do you ever decide to do that?  I looked in my stash of cards and I was low on birthday cards.

Here is a card I recently made.  It is a little bit "mod"...but cute too!

All of the papers are from Recollections cardstock which can be purchased at Michaels.  I used two cricut cartridges for the clothes (Paisley) and the background mat in yellow and white was cut using Elegant Edges.  The sentiment, Happy Birthday, is from CARDZTV STAMPS.

This is one of my absolutely favorite stamp sets and I use it often.  It is applicable to almost every holiday!  It even has a stamp that says "Happy Everything!"   And, "So Happy for You!" could be used for graduation, a baby card, a job promotion, wedding, about versatile!!!

I will have another super cute birthday card to show you on Valentine's Day, so stay tuned!
