New Cricut cartridge

Here is my creation for today.  I just purchased the Create A Critter 2 Cricut cartridge yesterday and I love it.  I originally purchased it because of the cute owl but when I saw this teddy, I knew he had to be my first.

I used a sketch from Anyone for Anya's website but since I didn't use an Anya image, it doesn't qualify for their contest.   I still like the sketch though.

I'm a good hider

Finally, jumping back into the blogging world...

I found this sketch over at Technostamper.  

Here is my take on the sketch:

 The inside:

I've had these cute hiding monster stamps for over a year and this is the first time I've used them.  I love this hiding dragon.

My poor neglected blog. How I've missed you.  I should probably mention how guilty I feel about how I've neglected you.  Rest assured, I do.

I swear to post to you at least once a week (preferably more) until the end of the year.

Gruffies' pumpkin surprise

My darling kitty, Theodore Thumper (because of his giant rabbit paws), wanted to help with the display.  Or maybe he just wanted to lay on the green silk .

I love the Gruffie stamps! Almost as much as I love the House Mouse mice. Almost.  Who wouldn't love the scary surprise of this stamp?

I used the sketch over at Priscilla Styles, home of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, for this lovely card.

Masquerade, anyone?

I was at my weekly billiards league, watching my teammates playing pool when I had a sudden idea of a ghost trick-or-treating as a devil.   The ghost came together easily enough.  His costume, not so much.  First, his tail was too thin, then too thick.  The tip was all wrong.  And the staff...I kept trying to get it to look like a pitch fork but how many devils carry pitchforks?  A little tweaking and viola, the staff.  I hope you like it.

Cardstock (Recollections): Paper (DCWV); brads (Spare Parts); eye brad (Spare Parts); felt


Until next time...

Another swing card

I made another swing card and while I like the swinging of it, I am unhappy with this one.

I like the stamps (Craft lounge) and I like the paper I used.  I even like the photo corners and flower.  I just don't like all the brown.  It's seems so blah.  I keep telling myself  "it's clean and simple."  Unfortunately, I see boring.

Cardstock (Recollections); Paper (DCWV); Stamps (Craft Lounge "Peek-a-Boo"); Flowers (Spare Parts); Pencils (Prismacolors); Punches (Martha Stewart "photo corner", unknown "corner edger")

Until next time...
