A fourth friend is doing a destination wedding and sought my services for her reception invitations. The picture here is the original sample. I will post the finalized design when it is all done.
As I work on all greeting cards & gifts, I'll post those too! Thanks for stopping by!

I have the honor and privilege to help a friend out on her blog & I am so excited! Her goal is to create the sample projects for each of the Cricut cartridges. She owns a bunch of them, but is still missing a few & that is where the special guest designers come in. We get to help her achieve her goal by filling in the gaps.The first project I am doing for her is this "Tweetheart Card" from the Straight From The Nest cartridge. The booklet calls for a series of green, cream, pink, & yellow papers and ribbons... well, those aren't really my favorite colors, so I decided to work with what I had and went with black, white, and silver. The project was actually very easy to do and the instructions were very straight forward. I used my Fiskars Rotary Cutter and my Martha Stewart Score Board to make sure all the pieces were properly measured and scored. I also used my ColorBox Cat's Eye pigment ink in black to ink the edges of my paper pieces (I used paper instead of cardstock on the card, using cardstock for the base & for the Cricut cuts). The finished project is a 7"x6" gatefold card. Hope you like it!
I am also able to use this project as I work to complete my personal challenge! Yay!
Stay tuned - I will also be doing projects for Forever Young, Zooballoo, & New Arrival in the next few days.

I visited my aunts in Louisiana and forgot to bring pictures of my daughter. Since I am going to be mailing them now, I decided to frame them and send them. But, I couldn't just put them in any old frame, now could I? So I decorated the frame & used it as an opportunity to play with my new bling tool! Yay!
I created assorted thank you cards for my co-workers who helped me with training our new volunteers.
