A Few Cards....

Hi Everyone!

I have a few cards to post for you tonight!

The first one is scrap lifted from the Cricut Circle blog with some minor tweaks.  A friend of mine had her baby boy a few weeks early so I had to put together a quick card.

Bee and clouds are from Create A Critter and the diamond background is from Paper Lace.  Frosted Lace Stickles were used on the wings and antennae of the bee.  Card is 4.25" X 4.25"

This next card uses a stamp from Sarasota Stamps which I embossed with black embossing powder.  The butterfly is colored in with Pearlescent Watercolors.  The colors looks weird without the flash, so I also took a picture with the flash on so you can see the colors and embossing better.

If you're on Facebook, would you please vote for my daughter...


If you already are on facebook and wouldn't mind, my 7 year old daughter - Sophia - would love to have you vote for her picture to win. She's on a competitive dance team with the Brookfield Dance Academy (BDA) and they are having a contest where she needed to post a picture showing her love for BDA and the picture with the most votes wins a prize.

I'm not sure if you have to like their page to vote, so hopefully someone can try it and let me know.

I've put the link below. Just look for the recent post by Lisa Brussow in their timeline - I've included the picture we posted below of her doing a Scorpion - a move she learned at BDA.

Thank you so much for doing this! It will make Sophia so happy to get votes!!!!/pages/Brookfield-Dance-Academy/121818181181154

Where does the time go...

Oh my gosh, I can't believe that my last post was August 8th - yikes!  Well, you know what they say about good you can tell, I never did get the time to focus on being crafty.

This could be either good news or bad news, I have a total of 10 people with birthdays coming up that I need to make cards for.  So, I will either have some stuff to post soon or will end up having to buy birthday

In the meantime, here are some pics showing what I've been up to in August...

Taking my daughter to dance competitions and dance performances....

Taking my daughter to the Victoria Justice concert at the Wisconsin State Fair...

Eating and drinking with family and friends at the Milwaukee County Zoo Ala Carte...

Getting school pictures and registration done.  I can't believe school is starting in 2 weeks...

Checking in...

Hi Everyone!

I'm super sorry about being away for so long.  Life got in the way as usual.  I started a new job a little over 2 weeks ago, so I've been trying to focus on learning that and have not devoted much time to crafting.

I truly miss it when I'm not scrapbooking or making cards, so I need to schedule some time to spend being creative again.

I signed up for the Cricut Circle again, but have not been able to get onto the message board (ughhh - so frustrating).  I don't have the luxury to call during the day since I'm at work, so I've sent an email and am hoping that I will actually get a resolution from that soon.  Hopefully I'll be chatting again with those of you whom are still in the Circle this week.

Hope everyone's summer is going well!
