I used 2 different Cricut cartridges, the butterfly is from Storybook & the swirly twirly is from Elegant Cakes. The embossing is from Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, I embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder, it's from My Pink Stampers Family & Friends stamp set.

My 1st set of Peachy Keen Stamps!

Yay! My Peachy Keen stamps came in the mail today! I had so much fun today stamping with them.. They are so cute! I am entering this card in the PKS: Sketch Challenge #46!

I used 2 different sets of PKS, the eyes are from Everyday Character Face Parts & the mouth is from Basic Paper Doll Faces. I got two different sets so I could mix and match the face parts :) I used some glossy accents over the eyes and mouth to give it a lil pop.. I used D'vine Swirl embossing folder for the Cuttlebug, the sentiment is a stamp I got in the $1 bin @ Michael's and for the lil' clover I used Design Studio to weld a few hearts together & a "j" for the stem :) I am still learning, but having a great time in the process! Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments! I really appreciate all the encouragement and new followers!

Cricut Cardz Challenge #62

This card I am entering into the Cricut Cardz challenge, we were to make a card with a cup image from any Cricut cartridge.

I don't have a cartridge with a cup on it so I used the George Basic Shapes & Design Studio to weld the shapes together to make mine :) It took 5 minutes and I think came out so cute! I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the cup and TPS~ Sweet Pea cardstock pack for the patterned cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate all the views, followers & comments :)

I used the Cricut cartridge "Wedding" for the outside cuts and DCVW "All dressed up" paper stack.
