TCBS D/T~ So Soft!!!

Hi!ya All!

How is everyone this Tuesday? I hope all are well, you noticed that I didn't say Happy Tuesday in my opening. That is because it is a sad one to me. This will be the last post for The Cuttlebug Spot today. Our leader will be shutting it down for a while, hopefully not too long, so don't forget about us.

Our last assignment was to use Felt on our project. I used some felt I had purchased a while back from M's. It is kinda stiff so it worked good in my Nesties and punch. The flower is from the Nesties and the owl is from the punch. Border at the bottom was already done. I will miss all of my D/T members but will still continue to visit them and I hope you will too. Have a great week everyone!

Hugz, xx

MTC~Some Friday Fun!!!

Happy Fri.!

Hi~ya All!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday. You might have heard about the settlement between PC and MTC. You can no longer use your Cricut with MTC if you had not downloaded the program before the settlement. For those of us lucky enough to have it before this disaster happened we can still cut out SVG's with our Cricuts. I still use my Cricut because I can't afford to get another cutter at this time. My personal opinion is that if PC had worked with MTC, it would have worked out well for everyone. I use my MTC software to be more creative than just what is offered on the Cricut cartridges. I understand that the cartridge are PC's bread and butter, we still would purchase them, but would also have the freedom to cut SVG's if we choose. I hate to fussy cut anything out by hand. Check out this video, we have so much talent out there, and to keep it bottled up,.....Well!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love and support MTC!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Wed.!

Hi~ya all!

I hope you are having a great Wednesday, and are staying dry. I am a day late posting my DT card, but I am sure everyone enjoyed the wonderful creations over at TCBS.

We are continuing to share with you some embellishments that I am sure everyone has around the house. Buttons!!!

For my card I used a real button in the center of my flower, and the tiny buttons are from a CB folder that I have, I punched a few out with my SU punch and placed them around my card. A very quick and simple card this week. Come and play along with us, and have a great rest of the week.

MIA???~ That's ME!!

Happy Thurs.

Hi~ya All!

I hope everyone is doing well since my last visit here. I have been MIA for the past week, I missed my CB challenge this week due to a bad toothache. I'm still dealing with it, which is no fun at all. Dental problems can be a pain in the butt!!!

Anyway, I thought I would share a blast from the past with you. This is one of first Cricut designs dust covers I made. I gave them away as blog candy. I found a piece of this material hidden away in my stash, so I sewed them up last week since I had a request for this material. They will be available on my store sometime tomorrow. If you like it better grab it because when it's gone It's gone! Have a great rest of the week all.

Happy Tues.!

Hi~ya All!

A very happy Tuesday to you all, I hope you are having a good start to your week.
I would like to welcome my new followers and past visitors back. Thank you for stopping by!

This week over at The Cuttlebug Spot we are focusing on "Charms." We were to create a card using a charm, and I decided to make a baby card for a boy. A couple of weeks ago I made a card for a baby girl, so a baby boy was due. I used SU card stock, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight, along with matching SU ribbon. For the frame, Spellbinders diecuts were used and popped with dimensionals. The CB Swiss Dots folder was used on the first mat, and DS paper was inserted under the frame which is also popped.

The cute little blue foot at the top is a paper clip which I attached the first charm "It's a Boy". The second charm "Baby feet", is attached to the two ribbons at the bottom. I finished the inside off with matching colored card stock and paper, and added a little blue bear to the bottom. I left the card blank until I decide on a nice sentiment. Be sure to check out my D/T brother and sisters creations. Show them some love and leave a comment, and while you are visiting and getting lots of inspiration, play along with us this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. Have a great rest of the week! Catcha' Soon!

CBS~D/T ~ Pins...!!

Happy Tues.!

Hi~ya All!

A very happy first day of March to you all. It is such a beautiful day today, which makes my day better. I am late posting my card due to Internet issues again.
This week over at The Cuttlebug Spot, our theme is using hat pins. With that I decided to use a Cricut cut from the Forever Young cartridge, as I liked that hat better than my original design. I am also using this cut for my challenge this week over at Cricut Cuts & Stamps, since I wasn't able to design a card for that yesterday. I used the swiss dots folder along with a SU plate for the background. It is a little hard to see, unless you look at the side view. There are 6 layers to my hat, which is popped with dimensionals, to get the different colors. Think, Red Hat Society..., lol. I hope you will play along with us this week, and don't forget this card will be on my challenge blog, Cricut cuts & Stamps. Catcha later!!
