I saw this card in the "Cricut Cards" magazine that I won and just loved it. I love the hot air balloon. This was a great idea made from 3 different Cricut cartridges. The book did not have a cartridge listed for the clouds. I used "Straight From The Nest" for the balloon which on the cartridge is a "Birdcage".  The bottom of the balloon is from the same cartridge and is a "Flowerpot".  Punch holes in both and used Embroidery thread in green.  Put the entire thing on pop dots and this is what I got. I used another cut for the dolly from "Easter Seasonal".  Clouds from "April Showers" with different blue papers and layered them. Background paper from a stack from "Big Lots" in a pattern blue. This card is an odd size 5 X 8.  I have never made a card this size...I am thinking about adding a pearl to each cloud. The saying is from Kristal Andrew stamp set "Winged Things".  This stamp set is full of so many possibilities. Visit her blog and tell her you saw my card: http://www.kandrewdesigns.com/  Hope you enjoy this card and please leave a comment because we all love comments.


Walmart Bargins...............

Everyone is always talking about "Bargain's". I seem to miss the most of them living in a small town with one place to get things. I made some "Hello Kitty" invites for my neighbors little girls birthday party.  She called me last week and said she stopped at the "Walmart" in Williamsburg, Ky. and said they had cartridges for $10.00.  She was on her way to Knoxville Tn.  I was getting ready for a reunion and though another lost opportunity.  Tom said lets go. So we hopped in the car and went about 15 miles down the road to Walmart not our Walmart.  They were remolding and had almost all the crafts on sale..... This stash cost me $120.00.  I got the mats for $9.00 and 6 cartridges for $60.00 and the bling is Jolee's Boutique which is usually $3.00 which was .50 off each pack and I got 7 packs.  I got 2 tape refills and 2 packs of deep blades which I don't think were on sale but cheaper than ordering the.  I was just happy with everything. Its so great to not have missed the cartridges............. Don't forget to look at my last posting below this posting..........


A Special Friendship

This card is made from things from my crafting friends. The paper was won from Mary at Cardz TV sometime ago.  The "Teacup" was from my new Cricut Cartridge "Love You a Latte".  The wonderful stamped saying was made from my friends Kristal Andrew's stamp set called "Coffee & Tea for You & Me". Visit their blogs from the badges located on my blog page.  I added a pink heart from the cartridge also and a red bling heart in the center. Hope you like it. Please leave a comment because we all love comments. I will be back soon with a picture of my haul from Walmart.


Shoe Sole Sister Birthday

I love this card. I finally got the cartridge "Forever Young". I love the shoes.  Then I used girly paper that was free on the internet. I love this paper shoes, bags, lips, all girl. I added a white tag and a white dollie on top.  Then I use a stamp from Kristals stamps the "Fashionble Friends" set.  The happy birthday was from "Sweet Treats" cartridge.
Added bling and a small heart in bling on the right bottom. I love this card and it was so much fun to make. Hope you like it and be sure and leave a comment.

Hello Kitty Invites...........

My neighbor wanted me to help her make some "Hello Kitty" invites for her daughters birthday. So here are the invites made on different color backgrounds. These were really fun to make. The "Hello Kitty" had very small pieces. Her party is the 28th. Hope she likes them...
