CTO Challenge #50: Valentine's Day (must use a heart)


I am so glad I still have a few hours to enter this card at the CTO challenge blog. I made this card last week but didn't have time to post until today.
This card is my favorite from all the cards I made for V's Day...
I used CDS to cut the puzzle with My Community Cricut cartridge and the heart from Create a Critter.
The sentiment is from MCT and I think it goes perfect with the puzzle heart.
Thanks for visiting!

3 x 3 Valentine's mini card

Happy Monday blog friends!
This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge me Monday is to create a 3x3 Valentine's card.

Such a great idea to create some mini cards because they are so much fun to make and also they go perfectly with Valentine's Day favors.



I made this little one using some paper that I download from Paper Craft inspirations Isn't it cute?
The sentiment is from MCT which happen to be this week's sponsor at Fantabulous Cricut.
The cupid cut is from Sweetheart cartridge. It was cut at 1 1/4...

Then I embellished my card with a little piece of ribbon and those little stick pins that I learn to make thanks to my talented blog friend Georgiana from Carson's Creations. She made a picture tutorial that really encourages me to make some of those adorable stick pins. I didn't have bigger pins though, so I used some small ones which happened to be exactly what I needed for my mini card... THANKS so much Georgiana!!!
I am also entering this mini card to My Craft Spot Challenge: Anything goes.
There are BEAUTIFUL projects done by the MCS talented design team for our inspiration... you won't want to miss it!

Hope you like my mini card and thanks for visiting my blog.

To my SIL to be...

My brother is getting married next week, so last night we (the ladies of the family) went out with my SIL to be.  We wanted to make her so very welcome to the family. I think she knows that she is part of the family already, but yesterday we made it "oficial"...

So, I made a card for her.  
My brother and her are both biologist/ornitologist so they world spin arround birds, so I couldn't stay away from birds theme... With so many cute cuts of birds on the cricut cartridges the hardest part of making this card was to choose the one that works with the ocassion.
I went with Sweethearts cartridge and the sweet couple in the nest.  The card basse is from A child's year cartridge which I cut twice in 2 diferent colors because I wanted to use the light color for the inside and the dark one for the outside. I love how you can see the birds through that window on the card. Then I dry embossed the front of the card with my cuttlebug birds and swirls folder. I finished the card by adding the string and the tag with the sentiment.
 
This is a shot of the inside.

Hope you like it and as always all your comments are so very welcome... it makes my day to read comments on my blog.
Thanks for visiting!

My Sweet love



I have always wanted to use this cut and for one reason or another I just haven't.


So this year I decided that I would make a Valentine's day card with that cut from A child's year cartridge... (It sounds like I am fullfilling my new year's resolutions) LOL
I love how this cute little card came up... I love the brown with the red and I LOVE that background paper which is from a DCWV stack that I've had for about one or two years. (There you go, I am using what I already have... another new year's resolution accomplished!!!)
My sentiment is from MCT, I am delighted with my stamp sets... who woldn't?

Hope you like my little card, and as always, thank you for visiting my blog.

I am entering this card to MCT Throwback Thursday Challenge! : Valentine's day.



Get well soon Damask Decor cartridge card.


I love Damask Decor Cartridge although the cuts of that cart are not the type of cuts I usually make. I have to say that sometimes I just seat and look the booklet from start to end just for the pleasure of see the nice damask images. Today I feel brave enough to cut on of those images and place it on a get well card.

What I love from Damask Decor is that any of the shapes is enough to embellish a card... so I came up with this very simple card.
My tag is from Spellbinders "Fancy Tags". Sentiment is from My Creative Time. The green ribbon is a recycle one that I had in my statch... (I knew I had to save it from a Christmas present I received) Added a little ink to all the layers, a pearl and call it done.

I made an extra cut of the center of the Damask design and I used to decorate the inside of the card.

I am entering this card to the One Stop Craft Challenge (Under the weather) at the very last minute.

Hope you like my card and thanks for visiting me.

P.S. i love you


A clean and simple card with a tag on it...
I love to use red and white together. I think that is one of my favorite color combination and I love to use it both in Christmas and Valentine's cards.
So to meet the challenge of The Paper Players I made this card clean and simple. Just a little bit of dry embossing and a simple tag stamped with My Creative Time "You had me at chocolate" stamp set.


Thanks for visiting my blog!
