Sympathy Card

Hi Cricutjunkies,

I am sharing a very Simple and Elegant Sympathy card I made for a friend, using Memory Box dies. All of my Sympathy sentiment stamps were to small for this large area, so I used a Thinking of you sentiment by Simon Says Stamps. Hope you enjoy!

Washi Tape Birthday Card

I am entering a challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  The challenge this week is to use Washi tape and I have plenty of Washi tape collecting dust. My card came out so nice, that I put all my Washi Tape in a jar so I can remember to use it more often.

I've been taking a distress marker water coloring class at my local scrapbooking store. I love distress markers but water coloring is definitely new to me but I decided  to give it a try. I think the coloring came out okay but I still need some practice. Stop by SOS and play along with the challenge, who knows what you might discover.

50th Birthday Card

Hey Cricutjunkies,
I want to share a Birthday Card I created for my brother's 50th Birthday. Since he is such a classy guy and a die hard LA Lakers fan I turned to my trusty Cricut Explore to help me out. I used images from the Suburbia and Basketball Cartridge. I welded the Images and the Number 5 together to create the base. I think the card came out really nice and was fairly quick to create, it took longer to decide on a color scheme. I am entering this card in several challenges today.

Paper- From My Stash 
Sentiment - Simon Says Stamps

Hiding In My Craftroom - Super Scraps Saturday #198
Little Scrap Pieces - Show it off Saturday
Sister Act Challenge - Anything goes #105

Mothers Day Card - SOS 200 Challenge

Hello Cricutjunkies,
I am entering a card in the challenge at SOS shopping our stash. The theme this week is Big, Bold & Beautiful. Use something big or bold. This is a great challenge and a reason for me to brush the dust off of my Simon Says Card Kit Stash.  I get so excited when I receive my monthly card kit from Simon Says Stamps . I love the stamps and use them often but I rarely use the other Goodies in the box.

For this Mother's day card I used the Feb 2013 and May 2013 card kit. Each kit comes with an inspiration page (easy peasy) I followed the inspiration page with a little modified. Pull out your SSS card kits and get inspired. Hope you enjoy!

I embossed the flower on velum and colored the back of it.
