Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #48 Emboss It!

This is my card for the "Fantabulous Cricut Emboss It! Challenge." I love my Cuttlebug so this challenge was a lot of fun for me. I went through my folders and picked one I rarely use and challenged myself to put it to work. This is what I came up with.

I'm not sure which folder this is but it has this elegant paisley on it. I lightly rubbed a color box gold ink pad over it to highlight the pattern a little. I got the ribbon in a grab bag of ribbons pieces so I'm not to sure what brand it is. The black paper is Recollections and the gold is DCWV. The stamp is from a Heidi Grace, for you stamp collection. I thought this was a classic card than cam be used for just about any occasion. I hope everyone likes it!  Be sure to head over to to see what everyone else made.

Whoops!! Cricut Cardz Challenge Maybe Not

Whoops!! Well I was so excited to do the "Cricut Cardz Challenge". I love St.Patricks day. I just think it's fun and I don't even drink. I put my card together, of which I had in my head since I got my "Simply Charmed" cartridge. DOOH! I did not read all the way through, and I have a shamrock or two in my card so I will not be entering it into the challenge, DARN! However, I still wanted to share it with you because I think it turned out cute.

I put my leprechaun on a wobble I had a video to show it but can't seem to get it to upload correctly:( Well I hope you all enjoy. Happy St. Patricks Day to all of you Irishwomen/men and Irish at heart! 

Cooking with Cricut Swirls and Twirls C-18

Well I will say I do not have too many cartridges with swirls and twirls so this "Cooking with Cricut Challenge" was a bit challenging for me, and let me know it's time to go shopping. I love Easter so I thought I would somehow incorporate that into my design. I grabbed my Easter cartridge and went to town. I also used my Disney Tinkerbell cartridge for the beautiful swirly and twirly butterfly. So, this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy.

As you can tell I love glitter, lol! I used DCWV glitter paper for the butterfly pieces, Colorbok paper for the basket base, AC glitter paper for the handle and a little Martha Stewart glitter for the border around the butterfly. After putting the butterfly all together I realized the underneath was white and a bit plain so I added some green DCWV sticker paper underneath, however when I cut it out I did shadow instead of the actual cut of the image so I had a bit of hang over, lol, so I threw some Martha glitter on the sticky part that hung over and gave it yet another color. I tried to take the picture in the sunlight to get the pretty "bling" of it it didn't come out all the way but I hope you can see it a little. Thanks, in advance to all of my followers, viewers and commenters. Now head on over to and see what everyone else has come up with!
