FCCB is having a ribbon or bow challenge.  When I think of bows I think of Hello Kitty.  I flattened A hello Kitty image in design space, then used the print and cut function.  The HK paper is by Cricut.  The ribbon is from the DL.ART Baby Bundle

on Thursday Night someone broken in to my sons apartment while he was sleeping. They stole his laptop, his roommates laptop and his roommates wallet
 He is the middle of mid terms and can’t  be without a computer. So I lent him mine. We have a brand new mini iPad that I am trying to get used to. So please understand if it takes me a while to comment on your blogs . It could’ve been a lot worse if he would’ve woken up who knows if the burglar was armed.

The Cricut Anna Griffin Pop up card cartridge is so much fun to play with.  On Cricut Access the card is pictured in pastel pink and purple.  I wanted to match some DCWV paper that I had.  So I played around with the colors in Design Space to change up the look.  The foil papers are DCWV, The Pearl Black is Core'dinations and the bright floral on the front is Paper Studio.  I embellished the front with AG floral die cuts and vellum butterfly

My nephew Daniel has worked so hard at college.  He is on the Deans list and got into a great Nursing School.  He is such a great kind and will be a wonderful and caring nurse.  I wanted to give him a little something so I made this card for him. I flattened some images from the DR Checkup cartridge, printed them then cut them out with my Cricut.  I also cut a big "Congratulations" for the inside but forgot to take a picture of it.  Way to Go Daniel


I made this card for my friend Patty, who love pets.  This is another Anna Griffin Pop Up Card.  I have made this card before using primary colors.  This time I chose the colors based on the aqua kitty paper by Doodlebug. I know Jackie will love this card

Hello.  Spring has arrived and it is time for a new Thankful Thursday challenge over at DL.ART.  Guess what? Spring is the theme of this challenge.  You can always substitute a Thank You card.  I made a Spring Thank You card.  There are lots of pretty Bundles of Crinkle Ribbon.  I used Sweet Pea from the Sweet Bundle.  Diana offers my readers a 10% discount just use the code KA345 at check out.
Daffodils are my favorite spring flower.  When I saw Elizabeth Craft Designs "Garden Notes Daffodil dies" I knew they would make a great spring card.  They are 3 dimensional.  I water colored all of the pieces and added some flocking to the stamen.  I centered the flowers on a center label by Spellbinders.  then I added a beautiful Sweet Pea bow.
Be sure to stop by the DL.ART Blog to check out what Diana and her creative team made. Spring projects are so fun to make-I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Art impressions is having a Gatefold Challenge.  They allow you to enter 2 projects.  Yesterday I posted a pretty floral card.  Todays project is a fun play on words.  I found the perfect paper to go with the Spring Chicken Set-Barnyard by Bella BLVD.  I began by water  coloring the image with Marvy Markers.  Then I cut it out using MCT dies.  Then I added the fun farm scene paper to the panels.
