Please come on in and relax and enjoy yourself. I give all the glory to God for any talent

I have. After all, if He hadn't created me then none of this would exist.

Dr. Who Birthday Card

One of my grandsons is a Dr. Who fanatic, so I decided to make him a Tardis Birthday card (those of you who love Dr. Who will know what I am talking about).

I have Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge that happens to have a phone booth card on it. I just had to do a few things to customize it. I printed the saying with my computer.

I hope you like it as well as my grandson.

First card in a box

I have been looking at those Cards in a box on everyone's websites and on Pinterest for a year now, but I was hesitant to try and make one because they looked too complicated. Well, my New Year's resolution was to try new things concerning my card making and scrapbooking. So I decided to try one. Guess what? It's not that hard after all!

What I like about the Card in a Box is that you can make one to fit just about any occasion. So here is one of my first efforts.

I am sure as I learn more and get more experience, they will be more embellished, but I thought it wasn't bad for my first.

Polka Dot Create a Critter

Found this lovely Polka dot paper by Core'dinations and knew it would make great animals with my Cricut Create a Critter cartridge. Here are two samples.

Close To My Heart Holiday Cards

I have been playing around with my Close to My Heart products lately. It is getting close to Thanksgiving and Christmas so I have tried to get busy.

My first card is made with CTMH Very Merry Christmas acrylic stamp set. The card is a pre-printed card from The Paper Studio.

Next I used the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge to make the poinsettia. The cardstock is CTMH Pear and Partridge retired paper.

I used the new Close to My Heart acrylic stamp set Reason for the Season and Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares for the next card.
Next I made a Thanksgiving card using the CTMH acrylic stamp set Always Grateful and a Sizzix Leaves embossing folder.

Simple Christmas Tree

Some times the simplest things are the most beautiful. I love how this card turned out. The die is Sparkling Tree Tile from Memory Box. The sentiment is from Gina K Designs Merry Tree stamp duo. The blue paper is very sparkly, which doesn't show up well in the scan.

Christmas Comes Early Challenge

Over on Stamp TV, they are having a Christmas Comes Early Challenge. You just have to make a Christmas themed card using Gina K Stamps. I used Gina K's Stately Flowers 6 by Melanie Muenchinger.

Tag, you're it!

The gang over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog is having a tag challenge this week. You have to have a tag somewhere on your card. It's fun to join and you get to see everyone else's creativity.

For my card, I made a crème colored tag and used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge. Then I embossed it with the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug embossing folder. The card base is from a Christmas set by Paper Studios. The stamp is called Christmas Joy by Justrite Stampers.
