Friendship Warm the Heart

I love how this pink snowflake shaped card turned out. It was I cut it at 5 1/4" from the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge.  
My bow is made using Kimberly's White crinkle ribbon and Posy bakers twine, added a snowflake cut using Martha Stewart's snowflake punch along with a recollections pearl.
The hanging tag was cut out using the fun Tiny Doily Dies and stamped with the Stampin' Around Christmas stamp set. All available from My Craft Spot -HERE.

Wedding Gift Decorative Blocks

Hello everyone, I'm thrilled to share another project with you here on my blog and it's also being featured at My Craft Spot.
I'm sharing this quick and easy project that I made in between cleaning the house, being taxi mom, and then curling my daughter and another gal's hair; they were two of the bridesmaids for the wedding that I made this gift for.

Since I already had the wood cut this was super easy to make, I just needed to paint the wood then cut out the letters in vinyl using my Cricut machine.

On my Gypsy I used George and Basic Shapes cricut cartridge to make the sizes of the wood blocks so I would know the size that I needed to make each letter.
I welded the letters using my gypsy for Mr & Mrs using the Quarter notes cartridge. The last name was from the Winter Woodland (omitting the inside lines of each letter).
These flowers and leaves are from I am Roses. I love their mulberry flowers.
I tied up the block with cream organza ribbon then added the prefect tag, with a sentiment from Kimberly's "Happily Ever After" stamp set I love the saying! I tied the tag on using black twine. Both the stamp set and twine are available from My Craft Spot -HERE.
I'm really pleased how this turned out, what a fun home decor items to the new couple!
Thanks so much for visiting!

Chillin' Penguin My Craft Spot DT Project

Hi everyone, I seems so long since I've posted a project (really it has been so long since I have crafted). I have a few computer issues, and with the holidays life got quite busy... but I'm so glad to be crafting again and sharing a card with you.  
Today brings another fun challenge at My Craft Spot, this weeks challenge...
Frosty Days
(Winter theme)

My card is this cute "Chillin' Penguin" 
I cut my penguin at 3" from the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge... he's so cute with his rhinestone eyes and stickles added on his hat. The oval and scalloped oval are a spellbinders die, and the snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch and an old Stampin' Up punch that I've had for years.
I love the saying "Just Chillin'" from Kimberly's "Think Snow" Stamp set.
The denim crinkle ribbon and navy blue jute twine is also available from Kimberly store -HERE.
