My husband asked me to make a card for a friend of his that was in an accident and broke his back. This is what I came up with. I hope it brings a smile to his face.

Baby cards

Here are 2 new cards I made using the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. There are some really cute cuts on this cart. I got the idea from Mary at Cardz TV.

Baby cards

I just love the images on the New Arrival Cricut Cartridge. I made these to send to OWH. Hope someone can use them. On th ebottle I embossed the bottom paper with a Fiskars plate with little hand and footprints. I added some ribbon and a little button from my stash.

Getting a bunch of cards together to send to Operation Write Home and thought I would take a break and make a card for a soldier to go in the box. I found this image as a free coloring page online and thought it was perfect. I just searched for Military coloring pages and this was one that came up.

New Arrival

This is my first card with the New Arrival cartridge. There are so many cute images on this cartridge I can't wait to play with it some more.

Thank you card

I made this Thank you card for someone who is helping with with some images. I sure hope she likes it. Again I used my copic markers to color her and to make the dotted background. I think the colors came together well.

Secret Tilda

Another card made with my new Magnolia stamps. This is the Secret Tilda which I colored a little differently then my earlier coloring tutorial.I used distress ink to go around the edges of the bottom topnote and then of course colored with my copics. I am lovin these markers. I also added a little white gel pen to her cheeks for some highlight.

Wobble Valentine

I just got these Action Wobbles in the mail and I couldn't wait to give them a try. You can not tell in the picture but I put one of the action wobbles behind the Bee so that when you flick the side of him he wobbles back and forth. I wish you could see how cute he is when he wobbles. I hope this will make a cute card for Operation Write Home for someone to send home to their child.


Here is the first card I made with the Pagoda cricit cartridge. The wording is Celebrate and since I had a stamp that said Celebrate, I stamped that on the inside. Stop by to see what I make next as I want to make a card using something from every page of the book.

Secret Tilda

Here is an example of what the process looks like when I color stamps with my copics. I'm always amazed at the difference that the copic markers make. Hope you like this little preview. The stamp is Secret Tilda from the Magnolia stamp line. I have a few more designs I am working with so come back and see what I do with her.

Panda Bear Cutie

I made this adorable Panda Bear with my cricut Pagoda cartridge. I thought he was just to cute. I used small googly eyes instead of the parts that were cut out with the face. I used distress inks to edge around the bamboo. This is the first item I made with this cart so come back and check out what I do next. I want to make a card using something from every page this coming month.


This is a Magnolia stamp that I just got. As soon as I got it I had to color and use her. Since I had a friend's birthday coming up it was perfect. Hope you like it.
