Over the Hill....

This is for my Brother-in Law, and was inspired by the sentiment on the stamp! The car and the trees are from Doodlecharms, and the hills were from Plantin Schoolbook ( stretched in Design Studio).

Get Well Soon

This is for a friend who is about to have a hip replacement. The letters are from A Childs Year, and I welded them to the ric-rac (from Plantin Schoolbbok) in Design Studio. The flowers are also from Plantin Schoolbook.

Congratulations Grandma

A colleague of mine has just become a grandma for the first time, so I made this card to congratulate her! It is all cut from Doodlecharms, and was inspired by the example in the handbook.

Happy Birthday Belle!!

My friend's border collie will be 16 next week, so this is for her. The dog and the bow are both from Doodlecharms, and I welded them in Design Studio to make a shaped card....hope Belle approves!!

Paisley cat

This card is for a cat lover! I cut the cat from the lovely Paisley cartridge, and the sentiment is from Storybook.

By the Seaside

This is a combination of a new stamp, and some cricut cuts. The sun is from Doodlecharms, the waves are from Plantin Schoolbook, and the boat is from New Arrival. It is for my husband's step-father, so I included his initials on the sail!!

Inspired by Donna Mundinger and Kazz!

I get a lot of ideas looking at the Cricut message-board...and this card is no exception. Donna has a lovely Christmas card on her blog, where she has stamped a snowflake on acetate....and Kazz out a picture on the messageboard of an easel card with the hibiscus cut from the Storybook cartridge. I merged the two elements, and this is the result! The pink frame is cut from Stretch your Imagination.

Bat Mitzvah

A friend asked me to make her a Bat Mitzvah Card (up until then I had only heard of Bar Mitzvah..excuse my ignornace!)

I sought advice, and was told that the Star of David from the Joys of the Season cartridge would be appropriate, and that good colours would be blue and silver. I used Opposites Attract for the lettering, which I welded together in Design Studio. The silver frame is from Stretch your imagination.

Hoppy Father's Day

Another side-stair-step! The frog is from Paisley, "DAD" is from Mickey Font, and the other lettering is from Plantin Schoolbook.

Happy Birthday Ryan

This was my first side-stair-step card. The child is from A Child's Year, and so is the lettering.
