Good Afternoon
I needed to make a new home card for a friend of mine who has just moved house with her 2 daughters so it could be girly colours! I also received my Cricut Wildcard Cartridge last week and decided to have a play just using the cuts and accessories in basic form to have a go with this cart which I love.
Poppicrafts are having a challenge for cards that feature pink, white green and black so I thought I could enter this card even though it's a simple one! If you haven't yet visited Poppicrafts I suggest you do. Not only is the blog fab but Poppicrafts has a wonderful online shop and ebay store which sells fabulous ribbon and flowers as well as many other gorgeous goodies for your card making and the service is marvellous!
My card is the House cut at 7 1/2" on white card. The accessories ie the window, roof , door and little trees were cut from printed papers from various of my Pink Petticoat papers CDs and pop dotted on to the card. The roof cut already has the little tile marks cut and i just curlede them up. Black ribbon and ric rac from my stash and 'nets' at window and door from Poppicrafts. I added some gems to the trees and door for doorknob.strip of green card was put through my threading water punch and the 'smoke coming from the chimney is a tree decoration hook! Sentiment is computer generated Ts Curly. Thanks for looking

Good afternoon everyone

This is my attempt at a bauble card for the BBTB (Bitten By The Bug) contest hosted by Regina.

We had to use the circle cut from George, Plantin School or Accent Essentials cart on our card as an ornament! I used Plantin 2 circles @ 5"welded together to make the card base then another circle cut @ 5" for layering on top. Gold mirricard for the top of the bauble which is a stocking top from Christmas Cheer. I embossed the bauble with swirls cuttlebug embossing folder leaving a blank through the centre. I had the gold wired balls in my stash which I bought last year with the idea of doing a bauble card and just never got around to doing it! I twisted 3 strands together and adhered with glossy accents across the centre (Glossy accents will glue anything and everything I love it!) I broke of individual gold balls from the wires and adhered them on the swirls and also to the white net tied around the top of the bauble. The decorated bauble then adhered to the card at an angle. Greeting is a gold peeloff on white then matted on to gold.

There are some stunning entries so go have a peek

I've never entered a contest or a challenge before so be gentle with me!

Good evening
Just wanted to mention that there is a UK Cricut forum! It's a relatively young forum so I thought I would let people know about it so hopefully membership will grow. So if you have tips and inspiration to share or are looking to chat with people who have been bitten by the bug pop on over and check it out!

Sorry about the flash!

Good evening everyone
It's our friend Geoff's birthday next week. Geoff plays guitar and is also a DJ so I made him this card! Luckily for me I received my DCWV stacks from QVC this morning!
I used the guitar 8x8 full page folded in half. I found this wonderful site where you can put your own greeting on a vinyl record!!(not a real one of course!Llol!) There are all sorts of things to customise and it's free! I printed the record on photo glossy card and offset it with 3d foam pads at the corner of the page then cut off the excess. A bit of bling an waalaa finished card! I hope he likes it! Thanks for looking and please excuse the flash these dark evenings are a nightmare for taking photos!!

Good Evening

I am blessed to have lovely neighbours John and his wife Mal. John is 70 tomorrow so I made a simple card for him. I spied this photo of him a few weeks ago when I was over at his house and 'borrowed it and scanned it!' After a bit of photo repair on my computer getting all the scratches off it looked as good as new. This is a picture of John when he was a young Naval Officer. I thought he looked a bit like Gene Kelly! I found this gorgeous metal ships wheel in my stash added a jump ring and hung it from the photo which I backed on to silver mirri card. Font is dragonwick. Hope he likes it! Happy Birthday John!


Good Evening
As the title says I have been making cards just not new creations! The last couple of days I have been doing a few duplicates, some have been requested and the others because I'm not feeling very creative at the moment! Lol! I think we all have these creative slumps now and again arghh I hope it goes away soon!
Anyway this is one of my duplicates just used different colour flowers but I'm going to show it anyway as I just love these Funky Fairy papers!
