Cricut Cardz Challenge #75/Challenge 15 "Masculine Cuts"

The challenge for this week is to make a masculine birthday card using something 
with wheels, and any colors or cartridges you'd like.

and for the Challenge 15 "Masculine Cuts" over at

Ok So I made this card using the Fathers Day Cricut Cartridge.
Cuts: The motorcycle(forgot how big ) and the word "cool" (4"). 
Just used a simple blue for the base and the embossed foil is a piece of reynolds wrap (the ones that are individually for tacos) embossed w/ my cuttlebug. It took quite well I was impressed.
 I did two types the 1st card is for challenge #75 making it a Happy Birthday card !
and below the 2nd card I changed up only a little bit to make it a Fathers Day Card. I used my 1" hole puncher and a stamp that was the perfect fit for the wheel to make it a Fathers Day Card. I also in the 2nd one used Tim Holtz Glossy Accents to make the gray shine. Everything else is the same. 

I really like how this card came out and the foil embossed. Thanks for stopping by !!! I love the fathers day cartridge !!!

Creative Sisters Monday Challenge #8

Here is a birthday card that I made for my neighbors 8 yr old daughter. 
I am entering this in the Creative sisters Monday Challenge #8 which you can find here
Challenge is anything b-day theme.

The image is the favor from the Sweet Treats cartridge and I just love it!!! I don't remember how big I cut it maybe about 3" or so. I used Martha Stewart glitter pens to go over the yellow red and blue streamers because it looked plain before that. Thanks for coming by and taking a peek. 

Animal Card Challenge

I just made this card for the Animal Card Challenge found here

I used Nifty Fifties cricut cartridge cut the cat and the blue background at 4".
The words cool cat were cut at 1" (I think)
and I used a stamp that I had CELEBRATE fr Michaels dont know the name of the set.
I figured this could be a b-day card or any celebration that somebody might have. Kept it simple I suppose but I really had a hard time with this cat being that I don't care for cats too much lol (more of a dog lover) but Im pleased with the outcome.
Thanks for stopping by !!!!

Design A Clipboard

Hello Just a quick craft I did this weekend, I enjoyed my Sunday crafting How Wonderful !!
I had a brown clipboard I didn't think to take a before picture because I honestly didn't think I was gonna pull this one off good enough to post. Im sure everybody knows what a boring old brown clipboard looks like right.  And now here is my new fabulous clipboard.
I got the idea from Michaels they had a flyer posted with this same exact idea. 
Top is the front view
Bottom is the back view 
All I used is duct tape Michaels has a variety of colors designs paper 8.5"x11" and roll duct tape.
I used 3 of the sheets measured and cut the black i cut in strips and folded in half to the width and wrapped around the clipboard. Finished it off with a bow!

Im so happy with my clipboard before it was ugly and now im going to use it all the time. I love this print it's my favorite. I'm tempted to decorate more using this pattern and if I do I'll sure post them. 
Here is the flyer from Michaels. Thanks For stopping by !!!

Get Well Soon Card

Well today was good and bad !! Bad because my poor baby (10yr old) got sick he had fever, chills, throwing up, and loss of appetite. So I picked him up early from school and he rested all day sweating it out. The good thing that came out of it was I was able to stay home with him (instead of going to my night job) and had plenty of time to cook him chicken soup (which he didn't eat and ate a PB & J sandwich lol & later threw it up) and make him a card. NOW I CAN NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THIS CARD !!!! A while back i saw it on Karli's blog She is very talented lady if you haven't checked out her website you probably will now!!
Here is a direct link to the video for this card:

The bear I got from sizzix die the paper is fuzzy and soft; the brown strip i cuttlebugged with dots folder, I then sanded it a little, and used different markers to color the dots. Also used Martha Stewart border punch which i love and just recently got; 1st time using it. 

The heart he's holding and on the inside were leftover hearts I had made from the V-day projects earlier.
My sons name used Old West cartridge, The balloon hearts is from Sweetheart cartridge. The words Get Better & Ah Choo are from Wild Card Cartridge.
I used my white gel pen to outline the hearts and right a little poem inside. 

The 2 sided paper i used is from Martha Stewart and I used 1 sheet to make the card and tissue box. The poem i made up real quick says: Hope you feel better! Your pillow couldn't have been wetter! Mommy will take care of you; when your sick and feeling blue! I love you always Love Mom
alittle corny but i was just trying to make it rhyme and finish to give it to him. ( The pillow being wet cuz he was sweating ALOT !!)

side view (just used half a tissue and  I made the opening by hand)
