Here's another card that I made on the whim, again with the cricut! This was another critter that I made earlier in the summer and saved.  I used the Tiffany blue scalloped card again on a Heather gray card, I used the thick double-stick tape to give it the raised look.  Accented the coral card with my fave white metallic pen and stamped the image in black.  For Dino, I made him in bright neons to really make him pop!  The inside of this card is blank.  

I hope you have something to celebrate this weekend! If not, it's the weekend! Celebrate! 
Happy Friday!

Hello Kitty Tag

 Earlier in the summer, I made a bunch of different critters and other cutouts with the cricut.  I made some Hello Kitty for back to school books and memory game cards.  Since I had some left over items, I've been using them for cards and tags.  I used Hello Kitty paper tape same as I used with the composition books.  I recycled the ribbon from a banner that I made and tie it on to the tag.  Another quick and simple project.  This tag can easily be used for any occasion. 


Fruity & Sweet

So sweet!! I cut this watermelon using the cricut.  I really wanted this watermelon to look as authentic as possible, so I used green zebra print card stock to get the lines and colors or the outside of the watermelon.  I used some scrap pink polka dot card stock for the cheeks, and scrap black card stock for the face.  To make the watermelon pop out a little more, I used thick raise double-stick tape to lift it off the card.  I stamped the "so sweet" in black on the scalloped Tiffany blue card stock.  I didn't take a picture of the inside of the card, I used a pink card stock with pinking edges.  I left it blank to write your own sentiments.  This card can be used as an all occasion card.  Super simple and quick to make.

Here is another "sweet" card I made with strawberries! I think I was inspired by the hot days of summer and eating lots of fruits?!  These strawberries were also made with the cricut.  I felt is was a little too plain, so I cut out the "sweet" also with the cricut to give it a little something extra.  I used the thick double-stick tape again for all of the strawberries and the word.  It really does make a big difference in the overall look.  The inside of this card is also blank for writing your own sentiments.  This can be an all occasion card as well.

Hope everyone gets to enjoy some sweet fruit!

I guess all in all it was a good summer!  As you can see it was filled with delicious eats & treats! That is why I am doing the Master Cleanse again!  I need to reset and start off fresh! Get a good start on the holiday season!  Planning on fitting in a lot more fitness and exercise! Even if it's just a walk around the mall! ;) Luckily I don't have to worry about the weather changing to much, so there is still time to get outside and get a dose of some adventure!
