~~~You Make Me Smile ~~~

Good morning y'all.....It's time once again for a challenge over at My Craft Spot! This week the challenge is Cute Critters ! The 1st time I saw the darling Sweet Sentiments Stamp Set, over at , I knew I wanted to make this puppy and use the sentiment from the collection. Thanks Darlene for letting me use the Paper Pups cart to cut this lil fellow out with! I used Bloom for the background scallop and circle, A Child's Year was used for the bone and Country Life was used for the hat. I added some beautiful Crinkle Ribbon and Bakers Twine, also found on Kimberly's blog. I used Core'dinations paper for the pup and ran only her ears through the Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots folder ( an all time favorite !) I used it on the bone as well and used a Sizzix folder for the BG circle. The puppy paws punch is by EKSuccess. Added a few punched butterflies, did lots of inking and popping and added a little hand doodlin. His teeth were made all sparkly by using Star Dust Stickles. I used a black gel pen for his nose and used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheek,which I dusted with pink chalk. Gave her some googly eyes and smiled right back at her !! I hope y'all join us at My Craft Spot this week. Kimberly always has some great prizes for the winner of the challenge!!

Have a great week !!!

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!!!
