Cricut-less card!

Here is a birthday card that I made with a digi image that looks identical to my aunts dog.  Her dog turned 5, so I thought this was perfect!!!  The digi image came from Delicious Doodles.  Hope you are all having a great relaxing weekend :)

Turtle Cake

Here is a delicious chocolate cake that I turned into a turtle :)  The spots (fondant) on his back were cut out with the Cake Basics Cartridge with the Cricut Cake.  This was my first time using fondant as well.  I am not really a fan on fondant as I do not like the taste.  I made marshmallow fondant which tastes a little better, but still is not my personal favorite.  The cake recipe came from here and was delicious!!!  The only thing I did not do was add chocolate chips to melt on top when the cake was done baking.  I also made buttercream frosting which the recipe can be found here.  Enjoy :)

Peachy Keen Challenge #57

Hello Everyone!  I finally got some crafting done today!  Here is a card that I made for the Peachy Keen Sketch challenge with color combo of Coral, Robin Egg Blue, and Honeydew.  

I used the Ballin' Bunnies stamp set which I just think is so cute :)  I popped up the Kleenex box with an action wobble which I love!!  Enjoy and make sure to check out the other challenge entries here.

Hoppy Birthday!

Here is my last post for today!  I made this card for the My Pink Stamper Design Team call.  The challenge is to make something with orange, turquoise, green, brown, and an optional color using your favorite cartridge.  If you do not know about My Pink Stamper, you can check out the website here.  You will find great inspiration for all levels of crafters :) 

My card was inspired from the Creative Imaginations frog paper that I used on the background.  Everything else was cut out with the Create a Critter Cartridge which is my favorite.  I finished my card with the perfect sentiment from My Pink Stamper Buggy Punnies Stamps (not just to be used with bugs!).  I hope you enjoy and have a great rest of your weekend!  Don't forget to check out all of the other amazing entries for the challenge here.

Strawberry Bread!

Last weekend, I went strawberry picking and picked some delicious strawberries!  I decided to make some strawberry bread and it turned out so good that I made some for friends.  If you like strawberries and have never had strawberry bread you should try it :)  Super easy to make and DELICIOUS!!  I got my recipe from here. The only thing I changed was that I added chocolate chips of course!  I added a little decoration to the bag using the Imagine Better Together Cartridge.  My Imagine needs new ink which is why it turned out kind of light.  Enjoy!

Flower Shoppe

Happy Friday Everyone!  I hope that you all have some great plans for the weekend :)  I am entering this card into the Pumpkin Spice Design Team call.  The challenge was to make a new card, scrapbook page, or project using at lease 2 of the paper lines listed here: Bo Bunny, Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper, Echo Park, Graphic 45, or My Mind's Eye.  I choose to use Cosmo Cricket, and Echo Park paper in my project.  

Another requirement is to mention your favorite paper company.  This is one of the hardest questions as there are soooooo many awesome papers out there!  However, if I have to choose I would say that my favorite papers come from DCWV and Cosmo Cricket.  Both of these companies have such beautiful papers with a wide variety to choose from.  Do you have a favorite paper company?

Hope you enjoy!

Moo-chas Gracias

Here is one more super quick card for today.  I used Create a Critter to cut out the cow and My Pink Stampers Even More Punny-licious stamps.  

I am also behind, and want to thank Donya over at Ok Scrappin Mama for the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.  That is very nice of her. You can see who I passed the award onto here

Have a great night everyone :)

Picnic Time!

This months challenge over at the Cricut Circle is to make a project using the theme of BBQ, picnic, or patio.  You also must incorporate some gingham or checker pattern.  

I had a hard time deciding which to use, but I settled on a picnic theme.  I really love the way the basket turned out :)  Now I want to go on a picnic!!!  

I am also entering this into the Cooking with Cricut: Anything Goes challenge.  Enjoy!

Happy 4th of July Weekend!  I hope that everyone is having a great weekend.  Yesterday, I worked on some projects with my sister.  I just got the Sugar and Spice cartridge and wanted to test it out.  So I picked out this little sheep to make a cute little card.  I think the sheep is adorable!  My only problem was I couldn't seem to write straight for anything yesterday!?! :-(  Oh, well!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
