Cupcake Birthday...

Hey ya'll!  I hope everyone is doing alright!  Been busy painting the house.  FINALLY!  I was able to talk the hubby into finally letting me paint.  Hehe!  I wouldn't let him hang anything on the walls and it was annoying him so he finally gave into letting me paint!  :)  Haha...I'm sneaky! 

I've been trying to finish up the invites and party stuff for my friends boys birthday...but she's dragging her feet on getting me the numbers.  Granted his birthday isn't until October 19, but I have other orders I need to do as well.  I'm one of those people that needs to focus on one thing at a time.  Well...I can do more then one, but when I have big projects I like to knock one out before I move onto the next.  So since I have to wait...I decided to work on birthday cards that my mom ordered.  This is what I have done today.....



~Paper: CTMH - all card stock, Nook&Pantry - Cupcakes
~Ink: CTMH - Chocolate, Blush, Sunny Yellow & Heavenly Blue
~Cartridge: Hello Kitty Greetings - Cupcake cut at 2.5" in height
~Ribbon: Crinkle ribbon purchased from Pink By Design
~Gems: CTMH
~Stamps: CTMH - Cupcake Sprinkles "Hey there cupcake" & candle on inside of card; PBD - Birthday, Birthday for "happy birthday" on inside of card. 

This card is being entered into the CPS #236 challenge.

It's a farm life...

Good morning ya'll!  Hope everyone is off to a great morning.  Me?  It's good now that I've got my buddy with me.  I babysit a little girl that used to go to the day care that I no longer work for.  I fell in love with her.  I watch her in the morning so her mom can go to college.  I had a rough night and my morning didn't start off so great, but I'm happier now.  Kids seem to bring out the better in me!  :)

Speaking of....I have been working on some stuff for my friends lil boy who is turning to in October.  He's one of my lil buddies too!  She's doing a farm theme and asked me to make center pieces, goodie-bag toppers, and invites.  Check it out....

 This is the front of the invite.  I thought it would be cute if she put a pic of her son behind the doors.

 This is the back of the invite where all the info will go.

These are the bag toppers.  She only needed 8, so I made 2 of each.  I don't have picture of the center pieces.  However, basically it's these animals (+ a chick & barn), but bigger and they will be glued to sticks and arranged in a pail.  Kinda like flowers in a vase.  She just asked me to make the animals, bc she doesn't have this cartridge.

Cartridge: Create a Critter - animals & barn and Birthday Bash - "you're invited"
Cuts: Barn 4.5", Toppers: 6x4 (folded at 3") animals 2.5", Center piece: Animals 5.5"
Paper: CTMH - White, black, blush, watermelon, bubblegum, cranberry, chocolate, dessert sand  Recollections - grey
Stampin Up - whatever color that blue is (haha!).
Stamps: CTMH - It's Your Day
Ink: Cranberry

Fall Wreath...

Hey hey hey!  So I if you don't know of Sarah from Pink By Design, then you guys are missing out!!!  She has her own line of stamps that are AWESOME!  Check out her store by clicking the link above.  She also has her own blog ----> Pink Cricut AND a community where everyone can share projects and ideas ---> Pink By Design Community.  It's a very fun place to visit and share with others. 

I've seen Sarah get into doing wreaths lately and I decided that I wanted to try and make a fall one.  I started it a couple days ago and was finally able to get to Michaels this weekend and get a glue gun and stuff to finish my project.  So I wanted to share that with you all today! 

I used Simply Autumn paper pack from Recollections.  Got it at Michaels for $11.99 on sale!  I also bought my leaves from Michaels for $0.95. 
I cut my strips for my flowers at 1", 1.5" and 2". 
I glued my flowers to an 11.75" circle cardstock cut with my cricut. 
Here is the video where I got my idea from. ----> CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

Thanks for lookin!

Finally Clean...

Today I finally cleaned off my desk and my scrapbooking table!  YAY!  LoL!  So hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to start making cards again.  The house still needs a little work, but it's more organization then anything.  So be on the lookout for some projects! 

I also wanted to let you all case you didn't...that PINK BY DESIGN is hosting a ustream tomorrow evening and revealing new stamps!  (  Friday 800-1100pm! 

I've been getting a bit bored and going a little stir crazy!  So I found this on someone elses blog and thought that I would also give it a try!  I'm always looking for an excuse to play with my camera!
