It's been a long time since I've made a card. Here is one I made the other day using flocking. Enjoy.

Mother's Day

Wow, it's been a long time since I made anything in my craft room. I'm trying to concentrate on some things I need to finish (my dissertation). I made this yesterday for my Mom for mother's day. I got the pattern from Stamptv. I really like the basket, I think I will make some more...but not until I finish the big D. :)

Here are some purses I made this week for a womens' gathering at my church. Each one has a bottle of hand santizer from Bath and Body Works inside. I used my Cricut and the Tags Bags etc cartridge to cut the shape. Then I dry embossed it with my Cuttlebug and one of the Fiskars texture plates. I rubbed some of the Tim Holtz Distress Ink across the pattern and then used my heat gun and embossing powder to create the shine. You can't tell from the picture, but the tag is also inked and embossed. I can't believe it took me all week to do this. Oh well, it was the ULTIMATE procrastination project. It kept me from other things I should be doing. :)

Some new cards I made tonight. I hadn't made any cards in the last few weeks. I'm procrastinating again (should be doing other things) here are some cards.

God's Love Card

Here is another card I made for one of the challenges on the Cricut messageboards. I am so glad I discovered the challenge boards, they get my creative juices flowing.

Wedding Card

Here is my latest card. It is a wedding card for my cousin. I used my cricut to cut out the bride and groom from metallic paper (love this paper) which I emossed with my cuttlebug. Thanks for Looking.

Valentine Bear

Ok, so I'm tryin not to go to my craft room while I have other things to do. But...I am allowing myself 1 hour (ok, 1 1/2 hours) to make ONE (and only one) card. Here it is. This is the first time I used my sewing machine to put stitching on it. I like the effect. I think I'll do it again...but not tonight. :)

Some more V day cards I made. The funky colors are because I wanted to enter a challenge on the one of the Cricut Boards.

More cards

I said I was going to go to bed early tonight because I have been up the last few nights late. Well, it didn't happen. Here it is 12:46 a.m. and I am posting cards. I may need help.
The White and blue card I made for a challenge on the Cricut board. The challenge was to make an all white card with a pop of color. It was supposed to be made totally from scraps (I forgot that part) and since I used new paper, I didn't post it for the challenge. Oh well... I used my cuttlebug and my new flower board folder and the thank you folder. The butterfly came from my Walk in My Garden cartridge and is embossed with one of my Fiskars swirl plates.
The other card is my first attempt (first successful attempt) at a step card. I scanned my new cupid stamp ($1 bargain from Michaels, Yay!) into my computer and used SCAL to make the cut out in paper and chipboard. Then I stamped it. I did post this one on the Cricut boards under an ad challenge with these colors.

Still Awake

I told myself I would go to bed in just a few minutes. That was two and a half hours ago. Here's what I've been working on. I'm going to bed now...really.

Paper Pups

I used my Paper Pups cartridge for the first time last night. I have had this cartridge for about a year and had never used it. I made this card for a challenge on the Cricut Board.

Cards I made today.

I spent the day making cards. I haven't been able to do that in such a long time. I used my Cricut Wildcard cartridge for two of them and my new Cuttlebug flower folder.
