Good Afternoon.  It is beautiful here but super cold.  I made this card for a friend who had a tough mom week last week.  I wanted to give her "BIG HUGS" and let her know that I was thinking of her. I used the Cricut Explore to cut the Hippo. It came from the Cartridge Create a Critter.  I actually used the IPAD app and bluetooth adapter.  I love it!!  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper stamps.  It is hard to tell but I used a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to put glitter in the ears and flowers.  It looks very pretty in real life. The paper is Recollections from Michaels.

What a Tweet Heart

Good Afternoon! Today has been nice but this weekend brings us a fair amount of snow.  I am sharing a card I made today.  Let me start by saying the lighting is not very good and doesn't do the card justice.  I cut the card out on my silhouette.  It is  the center panel step card by Lori Whitlock. The bird and balloon are from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  I used a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I love the way it turned out.

It has been a chilly day.  We got about 5-6 inches of snow yesterday but a lot of it melted last night.  I got another layout done today.  It is from a trip we went on to San Diego last September.  We stopped at the beach where my husband had proposed to me in 1998.  I used my Silhouette Cameo for the title and my Cricut Explore for the scalloped rectangle and the journaling.

Here is another layout I did this weekend.  I love the way it turned out.  My daughter is almost 4 in the pictures.  She is playing in the snow and painting her snowman blue using water and blue food coloring.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes and title.

All Star and All American

I have been battling a nasty cold but felt better today and managed to get two layouts done.  My daughter is almost 1.5 and the other one she is a little over 4 years old.  She is now 11 years old.  I used both my Cricut Explore and Silhouette Cameo.

Whale You Be Mine?

I have been fighting a bad cold for almost two weeks now and I finally got into my craft room.  So I made my daughter this Valentine Card.  It turned out so cute.  I use my Cricut Explore to cut out the Whale from Create-a Critter and my Cricut Expression to cut out the Scalloped Squares from Elegant Edges.  I used the Pink Stamper stamps called "I Heart" Punny-Licious.  I had the twine in my stash. The Whale is on an Action Wobble.

You are the Milk to My Cookies

I made this Valentine Card for my husband.  It turned out so cute!  I cut the cookie and milk out on my Silhouette Cameo.  The sketch for my card came from Die Cut Diva.  I ordered the stamp set that has this sentiment on it from Scrappy Moms Stamps but they haven't come yet so I wrote it using the Don Juan font using my Cricut Explore.
