What would we do without a greeting......card?

I just love to make my own greeting cards. There are endless possibilities. You can personalize them to fit the person or the occassion.

Someone New

What's better than a new card? A new puppy!!!  Here is a picture of my new grandpuppy. Her name is Smuckers - just like the jelly. She is a real sweetheart! She is a yellow lab and is 11 weeks old. She is getting along very well with her older brothers Pontius and Stoli. She likes to play and keeps up with the boys pretty well. I will be getting back to card making very soon and will have a new post for you. Thanks and see you soon.

Paper Cutz Challenge 104

Hi Everyone,
Here is my latest entry into the Paper Cutz Challenge. I had the best time making this card. I have wanted to make a card using the saddle shoes for the longest time. The cuts on this card came from the Nifty Fiftys cartridge. It has lots of fun images to choose from and most of the color choices fit perfectly with this challenge. The background paper is from the Colorbok stack that I think is called Brights. This stack has many cute and colorful papers in it. I like how the four colors for this challenge came out. I am happy with the results of this card and I hope you like it too. Until next time.  Hugs to you.

Cricut Card Challenge Thank you card

Hello Everyone,

Here is my entry for the Cricut Card Challenge. I used the Give A Hoot cartridge. I wanted to do something very different for this thank you card. I choose a color for the sentiment that matched the color on the background paper which is a DCWV paper. I like how it turned out. It is a little plain, but I could not see adding any more to this without spoiling the effect. I hope you like it. I had a great time coming up with the idea and creating it. Truly love hearing from all of you and joining in on these challenges. Look forward to what my come next. Until next time.

Paper Cutz Challenge

Hi Everyone,
I have my entry for this Paper Cutz Challenge. I used the Simply Charmed and Elegant Edges cartridges for this one. I like the blackboard background as it looks like school. I used more than three colors, but the challenge did not say only three colors. I like how the card turned out. I printed the sentiment out on my computer and it took a bit of doing, but it goes with the three color theme. I hope you like this one. I enjoy your comments. I still plan to get some of my other cards on my blog soon. I am however having fun with the challenges. See you next time.

Tutti-Fruitti Card Challenge

Today I have this cute little cherry card that I made. I used the Preserves cartridge for this card for the cherries and the circle in the background. I also used an  EK  punch for the border. The cherry paper came from the DCWV stack called All About Girls (really). I like how this card turned out. Cherries happened to be my favorite fruit, so of course I like this card. I hope you like it. I had a great time putting it together for this challenge. Inside the sentiment is "A cheery cherry hello". I have some other cards that I created and will be posting them very soon. Thanks for taking a look see. See you soon!
