My new Cartridge "Lacy Lables"

Ok so I have to say I love this cartridge however, I am having difficulty getting my Cricut to cut it well because of the intricate cuts. I used my Cuttlebug folder on the background paper, I believe it was the "Victoria" pattern and I used my brand spankin new "Lacy Labels" cartridge I got at Walmart the other day. I have to figure out a way to get the lacy trim on without getting my glue on the rest of the area, as you will see in the picture (any hints would be greatly appreciated.) I used Bazil cardstock for everything but the card base that was from a print paper I got at Big Lots. I really like the way it turned out minus the glue. Oh! I also used some stickles on the recess patterns.

Hope Moo Get Well

Well this card I made for my step-dad he is going through a tough time and I just wanted to make him smile. I looove cows so you will definitely see them often on my blog. lol. I used "Create A Critter" for the cow and the milk jug. I embossed the paper with "D'Vine Swirl" folder from my Cuttlebug. Hope everyone enjoys. I'm off to create a little something for some challenges!

I'm Baaack!!

Ok. So as I said initially I had to borrow my friends internet to get going on my blog. However, I now am up and fully running with my own connection and ready to go. I am going to challenge myself to make three cards a week or more. I bought a few new cartridges and I think I'm going to give em' a try and dust off a few of my oldie but goodies. I have been reading a few blogs on my cell phone, but will be back commenting now. Thanks to everyone who has been commenting in my absence! I am going to add a quick picture to this post of my favorite card that I made. I am a bit of a Christmas enthusiast and LOVE making Christmas, well... anything. This was a card I made before I had embellishments, pop dots, stickles etcetra. Hope everyone enjoys!! :)
