Pumpkin Card

Today I am at home and enjoying all the beautiful snow that is falling outside my office window. We could get up to 24" of snow by they end of Thursday. The kids are hoping for a "snow day" tomorrow. They may just get their wish!
Here is a spooky little card I made using the Cricut cartridge Wild Card. I am finding that this cartridge is not as user friendly as the other cartridges. I would have like to have more paper piecing options rather than having to cut the card out a few time in order to get all the colors I needed. All in all I do like it and plan to create some more cards today.

Happy Halloween!

Sorry For Being MIA

This month has been a sick month for me. Last week I came down with what I thought was a bad cold. Then last night I ended up in the ER with difficulty breathing, a pain in my right shoulder and right lung. Had a few test done along with some ex rays to find out that I have Pneumonia in my right lung. Needless to say I have not been doing a whole lot of scraping or card making. As soon as I am well I will get creating again.

Halloween & Thanksgiving Cards

My friend and I had a blast creating cards all afternoon for World Card Making Day yesterday! We decided to create cards using Close To My Heart's Wishes Card Confidence Program. We used the "Just Because Card Workshop" from the program to make 20 cards using only 4 sheets of cardstock, 2 sheets of B&T Paper plus 20 card bases. WOW! That is a lot of cards for not a whole lot of paper!! Unfortunately we did not complete making all 20 cards but still had a great time. The cards pictured are what I created with the program. All cards excluding the first card pictured below are from the Just Because workshop.
