Hello to all of my friends, thanks again for joining me in my little corner. For today's post I decided to make a card for My Creative Times challenge, hosted by Emma. For this challenge we are suppose to use an old school cartridge of our choice. I decided to use Paper Pups. This cart is definitely an old school cartridge, but it has lots of great images in it. I wanted to create something for halloween. I love this little dog with the whiches hat flying on the broom. Nothing says halloween more then this image. For the background of this card I used K&company Spook*tacular Cardstock. I used some orange and green cardstock too, along with some bat ribbon to tie this whole card together. I stamped Happy halloween and blended some orange distress ink on it along with inking around the edges with some chalk ink (black) . Finally I used my heatsetter tool to put a black crystal on for the eye of the dog. This was my first time using this tool and love it. Oh, what a fun tool to have and it is fast and easy to use. Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. I will talk to you next time in my lilttle corner.

Yesturday was my niece's birthday and I toadally forgot.... lol. To make up for it I created a cute card for her. She is sassy and I thought her card needed some sass to it and I wanted to cheer her up. So with my Create a Critter cartridge I cut this cute little frog. I used my sandblock and distressed around the frog, his cheeks and around the lilly pad. I then used some chalk ink and inked around the pearl and yellow cardstock in the middle. I seem to ink around all of my projects. I just love that look. I used DCWV for the flower paper. I needed some blue ribbon but did not have any, so I inked the white ribbon I had blue. I got this great idea from the designer Tim Holtz. The saying, sorry, I froggot. is from My Pink Stamper's collections of stamps. To finish the project off I added some bling to it by adding the crystal butterfly and dragonfly. I am very happy with the way this card turned out. Thank you for coming back and to my little corner.
I created this card to celebrate my sister's Birthday. I wanted it to be simple. I cut the cake out of the Cartridge Lyrical Letters. If you are a cricut owner and do not have this cartrige, get it. There are so many cute designs in it. I then inked around all of the colored cardstock to give it my flare. I used some markers, embossing powder and some stickles to add to the cake. I stamped Happy Birthday. I love to make cards and nothing is more fun then giving them away. Thanks againg for following me and joining me in my little corner.

This is my first blog entry. I became inspired by the challenge from MPS, so I decided to break out my Winter Frolic cartridge. I finished the card, however I was late to enter into the challenge. I am happy I did it because it helped me get my creative jucies going again. Thanks for visiting me and joining me in my little corner.
