Smooth Rider Card!

My mom has a picture of herself from the 70s that she absolutely loves. It's a picture where she's leaning against a car similar to the one in this pic ans she was wearing a tiger print shirt and red tight pants. So I wanted to recreate it in a card based on that pic to give her. And don't you tell her I said anything about her in the 70s, she'll kill me! Anyways, here my best interpretation of the pic into a card.TFL!

Peace Out Card w/ Groovy Times!

This is another one of my cards I had designed in my gyspy and hadn't created. For this card I used several stamps i thought related to the groovy theme and the Cricut Cart Groovy Times. The girl doesn't have any layers in the cart so I colored in the layers myself with the BIC Markers. TFL!

Hang in there Card

I have a few cards I've designed on my gypsy at one time or another and never made them into actual cards. So the next few cards I'll be making will be cards that were stored in my gyspy. It just happens that I get some inspiration from somewhere or I get a new cart a forget about the previous design. I hope I'm not the only one who has long lost gypsy files! I created this one about 2 or 3 weeks ago when I received Straight from the Nest. I finally got it out of that gypsy and made it into a card. TFL!

Thanks Card w/ Best of Pixar!

I was at the grocery store today and was looking at the cards and I got the idea to make this card from one of the cards there. So here;s my version of that card. Inside it says: It may not have seemed like a big deal to you but it was to me Thank you. TFL!

Boo's Room Card-Monsters Inc.

I got Best of Pixar yesterday and I just about died when I saw all the tiny layers needed for a lot of the cuts! So luckily I like to color everything and decided to just cut out one layer and color it with my BIC Mark it Markers. It went so much faster and easier than having to piece everything together! And I know you could do the same thing with the Imagine but I like to color so it's not a big deal. Anyways, here's my card!TFL!

Critters exercising- Wall hanging!

So I've been exercising an hour a day for the past 4 days and haven't missed a day. I do the wii fit plus and if you do the harder exercises it's pretty challenging. Anyways, I really want to do it an hour a day. I do yoga, strength training and step aerobics while on it and I really like it but I don't want to skip it one day and make up excuses so I put up this wall hanging in front of my bed to remember to do it each and everyday. TFL!

One good friend card w/ Nate's ABCs

Okay so here I am again with another card from Nate's ABCs. Can you tell I really like this cart? This card probably looks like it was pretty easy to make but the different techniques I did today took a little bit more time. Like I heat embossed the one good friend phrase and I used my new Irock to put some gems as stars on the card. Well Hope you like it, TFL!

Buggy Card!

I hope I'm not boring all of you with my continuous postings with Nate's ABCs! Well I'm sorry if I am but I just love the cart and for now I can't stop using it! This card is for my 7yo nephew who loves it when I give him cards, so I try to make cards that are "just because" to give him every so often. This card is filled with bugs because he loves to read all those books about beetles and different kinds of bugs and where they live and what not. So when I saw Nate with the little jar with the bug in it I had to make a card based on bugs! TFL!

Critter Friends Card!

Here's another card I made with Nate's ABCs. I took off the goldfish because I messed it up when I tried to draw his face so I just used stickers instead. I drew the faces on the dog and cat because they just looked odd without faces. Still love the cuts on this cart, they're so versatile!TFL!
