August Birthday Cards

It has been quite a while since I have posted anything...not that I haven't been working on some things, I just don't have a working camera. My camera man has also been a little lax in remembering to have the camera available. My FH has quite a few family members with birthdays in the month of August. Here are three of the cards. The Party Time Dog is inspired from a post from the Cricut forums, I am sorry I cannot remember exactly who posted it. The dog is cut from Create-A-Critter and the hat is from Doodlecharms. The hibiscus card is inspired once again from Laverne at A Crafter's Haven. OOOH! By the way, I finally got a Cuttlebug. Hence, the embossed background. Finally, the gatefold butterfly card -the butterfly is from Picturesque, the bling is from Recollections (@ Michaels, by the way, Recollections stickers are on sale this week, hmmm!). Hope you enjoy...

Retirement Card

Two retirement cards made from Pagoda Cart and Far East DCWV Pack.

Father's Day Card

Here is the Father's Day card for my future FIL. It is an easel card. The chair and remote are from the Father's Day Cartridge that I borrowed from Laverne for A Crafter's Haven. The sentiment is a digital stamp from The Awesome Dad stamp is from Joy's Life stamps, (thanks again, Laverne). You see that we signed and mailed it off just in time for him to get it for Father's Day.

5 Carts for the price of 1

Shhh! I know, I should be working but I am shopping...I couldn't resist building up my cartridge stash. I went to and they have some cartridges for $19.95 and $14.95. Check out the screenshot to see what I ordered. This may not be a big deal to those of you who have been cricutting for a while, but to the newbies, like me - GET IT while the GETTING IS GOOD!

I won a Blog Hop (Pool Party Blog Hop, that is) prize, a Purple Cow Trimmer from All About Me & My Scrapbook and Latin Scrap Diva - Ivette. I have been so busy, if she had not sent me an email I would have missed it. Thank you so much! My first win, YAY!

What's on your desk?

As I was perusing some blogs, Creations with Christina blog posted a challenge - take a picture of your craft desk/table right now. My table is a folding table (limited space). I clean up every time I use it (except for today for some odd reason) and put it away. I have been trying to put together a craft closet which has space for a desk, if I can ever get my DFH (dear future hubby) to pick up the desk from IKEA and put it together. OH well, until then I unfold  a table and fold paper to make cards.

Happy Birthday, Sir

I am loving the Paper Lace cart. This is the card that I made for my future daddy-in-law. I used the Paper Lace cart for the  "happy birthday" sentiment with the shadow option. The paper for the shadow behind it is from the DCWV Cafe Mediterranean stack and so are the stripes on the inside. VERY Pretty and these stacks have been on sale recently. But I keep buying paper, this card will  be for my ex future father in law... The sentiment is a digi from  I also added gold pearls for just a little pop. Pearls are the June birthstone, right?
