A Berry Special Friend

Wow!  I don't know about you, but I am always so thrown off when I don't start the work week on Monday.  It seems to make me confused the rest of the week!  I certainly enjoyed the extra long weekend though :)  My mom got me the Everyday Pop Up cartridge this weekend and I was so excited to use it!  

I made this card for the Cricut Circle challenge.  The challenge is to make something with the shape of your favorite "sweet" item from summer and to incorporate stamps somewhere on the project.  My favorite summer time treat is a bowl full of strawberries!  The pop up on the inside was much easier to figure out than I thought it was going to be!  Enjoy!

Thank you Flowers

I have fallen in LOVE with creating flowers!  I think they are so much fun and love the way they turn out.  I had to make a lot of cards this weekend for teachers at my school, I only show a few below.  Using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge I made these beautiful flowers and added a sentiment with My Creative Time So Grateful for You stamps.  I hope that you enjoy these cards as much as I do!!!

Green and Yellow Challenge

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  I hope that everyone is having a great weekend.  I am very sorry to those of you who I regularly comment on your blogs.  Blogger is still not letting me leave comments on most blogs.  I have been looking at all of your blogs though and have seen many beautiful creations that I love :)  So keep up posting all of the great inspiration!

I have created a card to enter into My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge.  The challenge is to create something using an older cartridge with the colors green and yellow somewhere.  I created this card using Stretch Your Imagination.  Hope you enjoy!

CC May Challenge

I hope you are all having a great Saturday!  Today I created my submission for the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge.  The challenge was to use three of the prompts in a row from the tic-tac-toe board. 
I choose to use the bottom row and make a wedding card for my friends who are getting married in a few weeks.  I am really excited with how the card turned out!  Enjoy!

Last of NSD!

Here are my last NSD challenge projects for MPS.  I wanted to get them posted last night, but was too exhausted!  My first project was for the 3D challenge.  We are starting to learn about bugs and insects this week and I thought how cool would it be to start out the day with these awesome "antennae" glasses!!!  The kids thought it was a blast ;-)
Now my last project I am a little partial to because I LOVE these photos.  I am always so behind on my scrapbooking so I decided to make a page with my monkey photos from last summer and bought this frame that works perfect with the lo yesterday at Joanns!  The cuts are from my favorite cart Create a Critter.  I can't wait to hang this on the wall!!!!!!!  Enjoy!

Every year, we always get my mom a gift card to buy flowers in the summer.  I was just going to put it in a card I already made, but I decided to make a gift card holder for her gift card.  Works perfectly :)  Have a great night and I plan to finish the last 3 projects tomorrow!  Visit the other submissions here

Happy National Scrapbook Day Everyone!  I will be in and out today with projects as I have some other things I need to attend to here.  However, I will kick things off with MPS Challenge 1 for National Scrapbook Day.  The Challenge is to make something with a cupcake theme.  Last week I bought the Cuttlebug all in one Cupcake Celebration Folders so I thought it would be great to do something with that since I haven't had a chance to use it yet!  I made this card in about a 1/2 hour and really like it!  Enjoy!
