OH MY GOSH!!!! I'm becoming a BETTER crafter. It must be do to my new craftroom. ha ha ha
Mothers day is coming up and I just LOVE GRANNY, isn't she ADORABLE! I cut her @ 3".
Let me just say my Mom is 90 years young and I made this card especially for her.
I'm trying to add "stuff" to my cards....they're usually FLAT. I went to JoAnns and got a couple of DCWV mat stacks -white core - cardstock. I embossed and sanded. Then I printed/cut the banners and granny from the silhouette store.........hhhhmmmm Oh, wouldn't it be DARLING if Granny wobbled!!! ha ha ha oh....but I don't have any "action wobbles" (YET!) but I want I went to youtube and decided to make one. Surprisingly I have 30g wire..that will do. It took three tries ha ha but I finally made one and now my Granny wobbles.....LOVE IT!!!! After watching all the youtube videos, I think I might stick to making my own. My action wobbles MORE than the real ones....  The inside is a tag from the silhouette store too and I added a little bit of stickles in the corners (theres suppose to be holes for brads but I deleted them...I don't have brads..yet....ha ha ha
I can't wait for my Mom to see her card. She is going to get a KICK out of it...HA HA HA

I know...the inside needs some work..its FLAT....ha ha at least the outside looks GOOD!!
for my action wobble, theres a lot of videos....I practically watched them all and wrote down info and then figured out which one works for me. Thats why it took 3 tries...ha ha

Easter cards...PEEP PEEP

Aren't they DARLING!!!! I love how colorful they are, so Springy and Eastery..HA HA
I did about 2-3 of each design that will cover all my family/friends.
I found the bunnies in the silhouette store. The big bunnies are cut @ 2.03"w x 3.0"h and the little ones are 1.35"w x .91"h. I embossed the background and attached the bunnies and tag with glue dots. On the inside I used the font PC Thick  pt48 and glued the letters down...argh What was I thinking? HA HA. lesson learned.

I made envelopes with bunny address labels. I cut the bunny @ 3.875w x 3.0"h and printed family/friend addresses.  (My Mom lives with me).
LOVE IT!!!!!

HA HA HA!!! even the mailman LOVED my bunny addresses....HA HA HA

HA HA...I LOVE how it turned out. I used the cricut Animal Kingdom for the lion cut @ 2.62h and I used the Peachy Keen stamps for the face....HA HA isn't he ADORABLE!? then I used the cricut Lyrical letters for the NO LION cut @ .75h. The ribbon slider and the inside of card was done on the silhouette.

SCORE!!!! at WalMart.....

OH MY!!! I went to WalMart to get groceries and LOOK!!! I said to myself "OH MY, These would be  PERFECT for all those little embellishments. GREAT organization cause they are SEE THRU!!!! LOVE IT!!!" no more sticking brads and buttons on boxes so you'll know whats inside.
Theres 50 containers (2oz.) WITH LIDS! and for $3 thats like .06 cents a container. HA HA I think I can afford it......I found them in the paper plate/cups isle. After setting up my craftroom I'm TRYING to be a better crafter and I'm getting into embellishments. They look so NICE on cards!!!
