Princess Paint Can Swap!

This is the can that I made for my paint can partner. It doesn't have a princess on it, but I loved this paper so much. I knew that it was fit for a Princess. My partner and I discussed what her thoughts on Princess was and she said "Girly". So, I knew that this would work. She received her can yesterday and said that this is her "Best Can Ever" I was thrilled to hear that. I'm so happy that she liked it.

This is the paint can I received from a PYT swap I was in. I asked for an Elegant can and this is what my partner came up with. My very first reaction was, Ohhlala! She did a great job and the goodies are pretty awesome.

My partner wanted a girly can this is what I came up with. Her favorite color combinations are pink and brown. I enjoyed making this can for her. I must admit that I had a really hard time departing from it. It came out beautiful.

Happy Father's Day!!

This is the card that I made for my husband for Father's day. He loved the way it came out.

I must admit that it was really easy to make. I used Wild Card for the saying and Jasmine for the photo corners. All the papers used on this one are from DCWV Green Stack. I love this stack. All the designs are amazing. The metal bbq accent on the corner was from M's dollar bin. Since we were going to be grilling on Father's Day, I decided to use it for the theme. Hope you all like it.

My very first flower pot card. I have been looking at all the wonderful flower pot cards that everyone has been making and I decided to give it a try. I became inspired with some orchids that I bought as a gift for my daughter's teacher. I didn't have a way of making the orchids, so I made some flowers using the Home Decor cartridge. I also used this cartridge to make the twigs and the butterflies are a MS bunch. It was really fun creating this. Hope you all enjoy this one!!!

I made this Baby Shower card for a very special friend. We've known each other since we were 7 years old. She tried for many years to conceive a baby, but was not able to. After many treatments and lots of doctor's visits, she became pregnant with her first baby. She will be giving birth to her baby boy in August. She is so happy. This is truly a blessing.

I used NA for the train and baby, used Jasmine for the photo corners. Lots of doodling, and skittles.

Happy Birthday to my dear husband. He turns 38 today. I love him so much. I don't know what I'd ever do without him.

I bought him a fishing rod for his special day. Yes we are fishing fanatics in our home. I wanted something to go along the lines of a fishing or ocean theme for his bday card. I used LIB for all the cuts. I hope you like it. I love the way it came out. TFL

Wow!!! Look at this! My very dear friend Jennie passed on this award to me. I have my very first blog award. Thank you so much Jennie for your friendship!!!

This will be my very first post. I am sure my friend, Jennie will be very happy to be able to see some of my creations here.
I made this card for my mom for her birthday which was on April 16th. I used several Cricut cartridges for this one. I used Indie Art for the butterfly, Jasmine for the photo corners, and Mini Monograms for the scalloped circles. The paper is from Basic Grey that I bought at M's, and I also used some crystals around the scalloped circle. I hope you like it.
