Minnie Mouse Thank You Cards

Hello all!  Just a quick post to share with you the Minnie Mouse cards I promised.   My hubby's coworker ordered 30 Minnnie Mouse thank you cards- purple and green & pink and purple. These were fun to make- I hope she likes them!  I used Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge and Martha Stewart glitter- that stuff is so pretty!
On this card I used Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious along with Bazzill cardstock-

 


For this card I used SEI Ally's Wonderland with some Bazzill cardstock-


The "minnie thanks" is from Gypsy font that I welded together. The gemstones are Jolie's from Michael's. The punch is Martha Stewart Arch Lattice- a fave!

Tomorrow we are headed off New York to my parent's house for the holidays and spend time with family. I'm so excited! Anyway, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope Santa brings you lots of scrappy goodies! Have a Blessed Holiday!

My Pink Stamper 12 Days of Christmas Color Challenge

Hi!  I'm so glad it's saturday!  I'll have plenty of time to play with my 3 new cartridges that I received in the mail yesterday! I got Rock Princess, Mini Monsters, and Simply Charmed ♥!  Yay!  They were my early birthday presents from my parents. Thanks mom and dad! Anyway.....My Pink Stamper is hosting a color challenge- Make something using 2 shades of pink, 2 shades of blue and black. So I decided to use Rock Princess for my card. I used Brittany on page 28. So here's my entry for the challenge:


I used Bazzill cardstock for the entire card except for the glitter paper which is made by Cooredinations. The ribbon is American Crafts and the gemstones are from Michaels $1 bin. I hope you like my card! Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!

The Greeting Farm Cards...

     Hello!  I've been playing around with a couple of stamps from The Greeting Farm Stamps and I gotta tell ya- I love them! I think they are so cute. I wish I could buy them all! I used prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits to color them in. I'm still learning how to color and blend but I love the way these turned out and I hope you do too.

This last card was a special order for a family member's daughter for her Sweet 16. She's a sweet girl and I wanted to make this card extra special. I used a digistamp named WS Audrey and I colored her in with Bic Mark-It markers. Isn't she sweet?


I hope you enjoyed my cards today. I'm also finishing up an order of 30 minnie mouse thanks you cards and a couple of gingerbread man cards like the ones that I posted earlier- so as you can imagine I've been busy, busy, busy! As soon as I am done with them I will post some pics. Thanks for visiting and have a good night!

1st post....here we go.....

   Happy Monday!  I am so excited to be able to share my cards with you through my blog.  I'm a nervous wreck- I've NEVER blogged before but how bad can I really mess this up? :)  If you have any suggestions or comments as to how can I improve my blog I would love to hear them!

    I was so inspired by many of you to start this blog- you ladies are so creative and I've learned so much from each and everyone of you. Thanks Emma Aguilar of My Creative Time with Emma for teaching me how to use my gypsy- I'm obsessed with that thing! And My Pink Stamper Robyn for those awesome cricut tutorials. If it weren't for those videos I'd probably still be trying to figure out how to turn on the darn thing! Thank you!  
    I want to share a couple of christmas cards that I've made using a Winter Frolic and Hello Kitty Greetings and Smiley Cards. I had fun making these!  I used DCWV's Winter Wonder Stack, Homemade Stack, Christmas Combo Stack, and Tis the Season Stack. I hope you enjoy them!
