CONGRATS CARD FOR NEW JOB                                                                                    

My daughter has a new job and it has been one she has wanted for sometime.  So I had to send her a card to let her know how proud we are of her.  The digi stamp is Coffee Break from The Paper Shelter.  For the Congrats word art I used the cartridge Cindy Loo.

 I have posted this card over at Raq's Card Sketch Challenge.  Also entered it in the   The Paper Shelter Blog Challenge 97 All Wrapped Up (She is all wrapped up in her new job).

VALENTINE CARD                                                                                                                           
 I have been busy with my Granddaughter lately due to her having surgery on her leg again... She had broken her leg back in April of last year and they had to put it back together with 2 plates and 15 screws... well the bones mended  ok but for some reason she has been fighting infection after infection since April.  So they decided to take the plates and screws back out so that the infection will go away.  Wow she is feeling so so much better now... she has to have antibiotic  IV therapy for a while at home but she is on the mend....and she will mostly likely be out of school for 3 weeks.  So all her grandmothers are stepping in to take care of her while she is out of school.  So I have not been in my craft room for a while but I wanted to post this Valentine card.  TFL....

 The lips are from the Indie Art Cartridge.

CANDY SUCKER FLOWER ARRANGEMENT                                                                              
 Hi    wow it is cold outside!!! and I am staying inside  today.  I am so ready for spring.   So today I made a   cute little flower arrangement made with suckers and valentine conversation heart candies.  It was so easy to make.  I use flowers from  Art Philosophy cartridge (flower8 in two different sizes cut 1 at 3 inches and cut 1 at 2 1/2 inches  and 2 each of the  flower1 cut at 1 3/4 inches).  Glue the 4 flowers together, made a hole in the middle of all four flowers and put the stucker stick through the middle.  The vase is just a little plastic wine type glass that was located in my local grocery store filled with valentine conversation candies then I added the stucker flowers. Now that was easy and if you have any questions I would be glad to answer them.   TFL!!!

FLOWER FROG                                                                                                   

Hi!  It is Sunday here and we are still having a bit of mild weather before the cold comes roaring back...just hope not too cold and I am already done with the snow... let's more on to spring!!!

I have seen that some of you are standing your cards up on a stand that looks like a bunch of nails... so I went looking for a picture of that item but had a hard time finding a picture because of not knowing what it was called so I did some asking around and a friend told me that it is called a frog.   So I went looking and it seems that they are called Flower Frogs... so I told my hubby I wanted one made, showed him a picture and he made me one. :)

  Wish BIG!                                                                                              

For this card I didn't have a candle on my cartridges that I wanted to use so I made up my own using pieces and parts from the cartridges I have... For the top (drippy wax) part of the candle I use the cake from Everyday Pop Up Cards... for the stick part of the candle I use the rectange from Plantin Schoolbook... and the flame is from the Everyday Pop Up Cards made into three different sizes.  I really like the Cricut Craft Room.
