Easter Share

I did a little Easter Card for my granddaughter (who turns 1 today), Kaileigh.  I made the bunny wobble with a homemade wobbler.  Hopefully you can see the side view clearly enough to see the wobbler.

I used the bunny from the Create A Critter cartridge.  He is just too stinkin' cute!  And to see him wobble just makes me giggle.  I'm not sure who got more of a kick out of it....Kaileigh or me!

Hope you all have a very Blessed and Happy Easter.

Happy Easter!

I'm looking forward to doing a little crafting this weekend.  Need to make a birthday card for my granddaughter's 1st birthday on Easter.  Also need to make a sympathy card.  Hoping to play a little and be a little crafty with my Cricut.  If I do, I'll be sure to post.  Until then, I hope you all have a very Happy and Blessed Easter.

Wooden Frames

This was done for a friend with a recent adoption.
Baby Shower Gift for a Boy
So, I thought I would share a few of the wooden frames I've done over the past few months.  I generally do these for gifts or to donate for fund raisers and auctions.  Now that I have my Cricut and SCAL, I am thinking about all the wonderful things I can do to incorporate that into my frames. 
For an Anniversary Gift

Did a matching card too!

For my Boss's Birthday.  He is a hard person to buy for, so I got a little creative.  This is his favorite pet, Tosca.

This was for a fundraiser.

More detail.

I buy my frames at Michael's.  They are just unfinished frames that I paint and then decorate with various things like paper, stamping, dried/silk flowers, tiles, shells, etc.  No two are ever the same.  I did a bunch of them with a beach theme for bridesmaid gifts for my daughter's wedding two years ago.  They were so unique and a big hit.

I would love to hear your comments.  And if you have any ideas or suggestions, I'd love them too!

Happy crafting!

Super Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky

Oh! I forgot to tell you! I decided to enter my tire cover in the Super Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky. Check out this blog!!  It's fantabulous!


I know it has been eons since my last post. Thought I'd give this blogging thing another shot.

I've been trying to do more crafting lately (and less complaining, lol) so I'm going to start sharing some of the things I've been working on.

I've recently gotten into some new things, like my Brother Embroidery Machine and my Cricut Expression.

One of my creations I completed this weekend. It is a tire cover for my RV. I was sick of the plain old white one, and the designer ones are sooooooo expensive. So I ordered some outdoor vinyl for my Cricut and used the Campin' Critters cartridge for the scene. Then I added the lettering cutouts via SCAL. The cover is wrinkled since it's not on the tire yet. But I really like the way it turned out. Not bad for a Cricut newbie!

Well, enough rambling for now. Will be posting more later! Happy Crafting!
