Really? February?

Yes, it is really February.  Can any one else feel my pain?  Oh well.  At least it isn't June yet, lol!  OK, so I have not been terribly regular at posting here, but baby steps are what I intended, so I should just chill and post what I have.  It is definitely cold season here.  Four of us down with one this week, so I retreated to my room to have a go at some cards.

First up, a get well card for my niece.  I wanted to work around the whole "bug" theme, but found nothing much I liked on any cricut carts until I saw the bear catching butterflies on my Imagine cart, Enjoy the Season.  Fell in love with this little guy.  I kept it very simple, but intend to emboss a background cut for the scene next time I do it.  Clouds would be great too.
 Used my stickles and gelly roll glitter pen to dazzle up the butterflies...

 This next card is for my hubby for our 16th wedding anniversary this week Friday.  Got this adorable idea for a sentiment on the cricut craftroom messageboards, but for the life of me could not find it to give that person credit.  If it was yours, give me a holler!  The inside of the card says, "Nice package."  ;)  Cannot wait to see the look on his face!  He already gave me my gift--an official NFL Broncos Tim Tebow jersey!!!  He is usually not the gifting type--so now I have a problem!  Eeeek!

 My husband gets super lucky this week because he also gets a Valentine's Day card from me.   This one will also be entered into the Cricut Circle weekly challenge.  We were required to use ribbon and gems on a Valentine's card.  I know which ribbon I wanted to use immediately because I had ordered this CTMH spool a while ago and not opened it yet.  I kept it color neutral except for the heart to give it some emphasis.  All the papers are Reflections from M's.  My bling is from CTMH and Studio 18.  All three Cricut cuts are from Sophie.  Next time I would like to emboss the silver background cut.  Hindsight is 20/20. 

Are YOU ready for Valentine's Day?


  1. Such a cute cute card with the bird house, I love it.

  2. Great cards the images you use really show up well against the white card bases!


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
