I have a new look!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

I redid my blog and I am loving it! What do you all think? I am offering custom blog design too:)
I realized that a lot of the custom blog designers charge and arm and a leg so I set out to learn how to do it myself. So I can have a fresh look when I want and so I can offer to do other peeps blogs for a much cheaper amount than most of the bloggers out there.
Here is the link if you wanna learn more.
I also just gave my friend a make over too if you wanna check out her blog. Kimberli's Creations

Also time is running out for the following chances at some fun Candy:

Be Merry And Bright

Good Morning. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Mine has been good unless you count the constant bickering my boys do. Boy they act like they are mortal enemies instead of brothers.

I have still been working hard trying to use my gypsy more. And I have been working hard trying to get all of my Christmas cards done early. So I am sure you will see a lot of Christmas card posts over the next few weeks.

This card was made using the Cricut Cartridge Christmas Cheer. The Santa was cut
about 2.75 and the base of the card is a 4.75 circle welded together.
The sentiment is one of those I found in the dollar bins in the craft store.. lol

Triangle Birthday Card

Good Morning. I hope you all are having a good day so far. I have been working hard at catching up with my card making and scrap booking. And I have been trying to get to know my gypsy better. I have had the thing over a yr and really never play with it. So my challenge to myself is to use it as much as possible.

I made this card using the Birthday Bash Cartridge and my gypsy.

The card base is a triangle at 4.75 then copied and flipped and welded together.
The Balloons came from Birthday Bash and they are cut at 2.75.
The banner is cut at 2.75 as well and is from The Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge too.
The sentiment plaque is from Birthday Bash and is cut at 1.75.
The sentiment is from CTMH.
And I used Cranberry CTMH ink as well.
The balloons are glittered up with Martha Stewart glitter.
And the banner is glittered up with stickles:)

Thanks for looking!

Kimberli's Creations Challenge

Hi everyone:)
Today I am sharing a card I made to enter into Kim's Challenge. Here challenge was to use a cartridge you hardly ever use. Well Since I hardly ever ever use my gypsy and I want to start using it more I chose to do this challenge using my gypsy and the gypsy wanderings cartridge.
The base of the card is actually a tag function on the gypsy wandering cartridge.
I chose the tag I liked and did it 4.52 in size. Then I copied the tag and flipped it and welded it together to create the card base.
Then I took the same tag and cut it at 4.
The cute owl is cut at 2.50. It is also from the gypsy wandering cartridge.
The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Woodland Critters stamp set.
Well it has been a couple of posts since I mentioned checking out my message board.
I would love to see you guys there sometime. It would make my day:)
