Thank EWE card

Here is a sample of my Christmas Thank You's
I used the cricut Animal Kingdom cut at 3" and embossed with the Swirls and Peachy Keen Animal Kingdom face stamp then I pop dot it to the card. The tag and sentiment were done on the silhouette.
I hope my family/friends understand that "WOOLY" means really......ha ha ha

Birthday card

Birthday card I made for my son.
Used the cricut cart. "Wrap it Up" and embossed the card with "tiny bubbles" and used liquid pearls to embellish it. The inside was done on the silhouette. I had to be creative and figure out a "high score" and figuring out his days instead of years worked out...HA HA I used a calculator....HA HA thats A LOT of days...........I think he'll get a laugh out of it.....

Gift card/Money holders

My Mom will be giving gift cards/money this Christmas and asked me if I could make something.......Uhhhh.......Yes MAM!!!
Found gift card holders in the silhouette store and made 12 of them for my Mom. They were super easy and super quick. I used the Recollections Christmas cardstock packs and red/green cardstock along with some Metallic red and green.
The 3rd picture is what it looks like inside, the phrase is from the sil store too......only 2 of the boxes will say Mom the rest will say Grandma...HA HA HA. Didn't want you thinking my Mom had ALL those kids...HA HA HA
I really LOVE how these turned out........you know what else?? it looks like a hershey bar could fit in there also.....hummmmm....I'll have to remember that Crafty Chocolatey idea.....HO HO HO

Christmas cards

My Christmas cards. Its a 5x7 card and everything is in the silhouette store (even the photo corners).
It didn't come out as I thought, the front is too BLAH!  I should of glittered or used metallic cardstock on the green cut out. For the star on front I released the compound path and cut the star.
I printed the sentiment on vellum. Again I ungrouped it and cut the star separate, then ran the star thru my xyron and covered it with gold glitter then glued it in place. I put tiny glue dots in the corners of the vellum and attached my photo corners then glued the photo corners down.

I thought it was cute that I have a "presents" tree but the inside tells you that's not important. HA HA

Moms Birthday present

My Mom turned 90 years young...Yes, she has been BLESSED!! she's in great health and even though she lives with me, she still can do things herself (no driving though). So the family and friends gathered and we had a GRAND celebration.
I used the svgcuts "thank you for the music" piano.
The patterned paper on top is from the silhouette store and then I color matched it for the music notes. I heat embossed (clear) the piano keys so they would shine. No, thats not a musical note ribbon around the piano.....ha ha....I made the trim using musical notes I found in the silhouette store, I shrunk them down and repeated the design. PRETTY HUH???
What woman doesn't LOVE chocolates and Starbucks!!!

you can't really see it but the keys are shiney

picture below..I slightly bent the tip and applied a tiny glue dot to keep the lid up.

without the top...its nice and big and deep

I would of put the whole box of chocolates but it was getting to heavy.....I also got her a new winter coat.
Not to BRAG! but my GRAND piano was the hit of the celebration...HA HA
I kept everything at its original size.

Here's the link for the piano:


scroll down on the above link and watch the video on putting it together...its really EASY!
