~~ Kiss me, I'm Irish ~~

I decided to play along with the Cricut Cradz Challenge this make a card using any card feature on any cart.Well, I decided to use the frog from Paisley.It might have been helpful to look at the booklet before I started cutting using my G, maybe then his mouth would have been done correctly, but I improvised and I think he turned out alright.I cut the card, as large as my 12 x 6 mat would allow. The frog himself, cause y'all should know by now I LOVE to layer, was cut at 4.34 x 3.86, 3 times. The pot of gold, from Paper doll Dress Up was cut at 1.95 x 4.21, 2 times in black and once in gold.The shamrock is from the same cart, cut 3 times at 1".His hat, also from PDDU was cut at 3.35 x 6.29 , 4 times , 2 times using the black paper, once in the polka dots and once in gold just so I could get the buckle. I painted on some stickles, added the bling in the corners, the ribbon and the computer generated sentiment. Ok y'all...kiss me...cause I really do have Irish blood running thru these veins !!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a lil look see !!!!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
