MAG Challenge #15

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and again welcome to all the new followers.  Can you believe it is  Challenge number 15 at MAG?  Just think it all started with the idea of three ladies who met and started crafting on Skype.  Awesome and it has definitely been fun designing and choosing guest designers from all the talent that is available in the blogging world.  You guys ROCK!!
OMG!! Have you stopped by the guest designers blog  yet?   I am telling you this woman is fierce with some paper! Please stop by her blog and just take a look at her creation!! You will definitely not be disappointed.

This week's challenge is page 65 in the Wild Card Booklet.  I have always wanted to make this band-aid card with the matching envelope.  My nieces love those decorative band-aids (Me too) and so I just had to use the Cuttlebug to emboss it.  It turned out really well. I am also entering this card into Crazy for Cricut first challenge.  So get going--- I want to be amazed with what you create. Comments are welcome.  Enjoy and GOD Bless!

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I have been missing in action, but I just returned from vacation and I am trying to get back in the swing of things.  For all the blog candy winners I will be mailing your prizes this week.   It is so cold here right now and I want to make spring cards, but I just can't get past the snow.  We had a storm here on Monday (7 inches) and we are supposed to get another storm here by Thursday or Friday of this week (I am so not looking forward to it).   I am entering this card into the following two challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut--Embossing

Celebrate the Occasion--Challenge #1

Hello Everyone,

I am excited to share with you my card for this week's challenge at CTO.  I hope you like it.  This week's theme is a child's birthday.  Remember you are allowed to use whatever crafting tools available to you.  Crafting should always be fun.

I know that everyone knows this character (Nemo).  I love him.  He is so colorful and surely able to hold a child's attention.  (My nieces and nephews loved the movie).  I actually showed them the card when it was finished and they wanted to take it home (lol).

Note: If you want to know what cartridges I use for a project look at the labels underneath my signature for the post.

With Sympathy

Hello Everyone,

Last week someone asked me to do a sympathy card.  That is really a challenge for me because these cards are not cheerful to produce, but in order to help inspire you I decided to go ahead.  These cards are Cricut-less and were inspired by (Kim Burmeister--Stampin' Up Demonstrator).  I wanted clean lines, elegance, and simplicity.  Tell me what you think did I achieve it?  Comments are welcome.  Enjoy and GOD Bless.

Celebrate the Occasion--Intro of Design Team

Hello Everyone,

I am glad you stopped by. Welcome to all the new followers.  I have been bursting with such good news and I don't like keeping fun secrets.   I am one of the designers for the new challenge blog Celebrate the Occasion (CTO). This blog will have challenges each Tuesday that will celebrate the occasions in our lives.  I hope you join me.  This challenge blog is open to everyone.  That means you don't have to have a Cricut to participate!!!!  You may use what ever crafting tool  available to you.  You have until Sunday evening
(11:59 p.m. Eastern Time) the following week to enter in on the fun.

I made this card for one of my friends birthday.  When it was done I liked it so much that after putting it in the mailbox I wanted to go back and take it out (lol).  You know how it is.  Anyway, before I made up my mind to walk back out to the mail box the carrier came and so that was the end of that, decision made.  Comments are welcome.  Enjoy and GOD Bless!
