"thinking of sunshine and butterflies"

Well I told you guys I would have a couple of cards to show ya, I don't know what the heck happened here with my pics I hope this straightens out as it is posted if not, you can get the idea the pics are what is important anyway. I was looking around on blogs as always and in a couple of the challenges which I already had my cards made, one was for birds the other for flowers and buttons, can't remember what challenges those were but if I had, these 2 cards together has it all. In the tree card, as you can tell I used my wonderful cricut, and all the paper is from stash except the sentiment which is from a paperpack from colorbox. Yeah, I know Im not stamping, but Im kinda waiting around til I gets me some new toys, as for now my new toys are my scorpal and my cricut which I absolutely love both. The tree I wanted to give the theme of a tireswing in the tree, do you guys remember those, I sure do and loved that ole tire. now the card with the butterfly is so bright and cheerful, makes me thnk of sunshine..Sorry for not havin all the deets on which cartridges I used but Im kinda away from all my stuff at the moment, but I do hope you enjoy the cards..God Bless to all

short note"not"

Just wanted to throw in a short note just so ya know Im working with my cricut expressions still, and yeah I have been able to figure some things out or so I think I have. I know now that I also need me a cuttlebug for embossing so that will be my next investment along with some new markers paper stamps and etc., want some of those twinkling H2O's, you know stampers the good stuff, I know I want be able to get it all, but I'll have a good start. my hubby and I have decided to turn a bedroom less used into me a craft room, Im excited because right now I work inour bedroom, on the bed, the dresser, no wonder I can't find any mojo, I need my own crafting space and Im sure my hubby wants his side of the bed back, so we all know he will be on that craft room pretty quick. Yep, Im ready to move forward and make my own little office so that I can dedicate my extra time into a full blown job, join challenges and try to get on me a designer team all the good stuff, i have surfed blogs and like the idea of craft shows and new friendships..Ok, the whole point in what should have been a short note, I don't have a card, but will have a couple tomorrow. God Bless

love and butterflies

Got one for ya. This card is created with alot of help from my new cricut expressions, Iknow it is pretty basic but I still got alot to learn with this thing not quite the easy peasy thing for me. Its so out there for me Im still searning to stamp and color. The paper is from colorbox and basic occassions, I did use my butterfly stamp from art impressions? I think it is, anyway then I used a butterfly punch that I have had for ages popped up its wings. the sentiment love is from my cricut and well as the layering behind it, I used what is called a shadow effect to get the light beige layer, I used a heart punch that I have had forever and layered them on my border its all sponged with timber brown and used the martha stewart lace border punch and added ribbon, I really like how this card turned out if it is a practice one. Hope you like it. God Bless
