Happy Birthday to You!!! & Grandpa your the best!!!

Well as I've gotten more involved with blogging and more into the world of craft blogs have found many friends, amazing blogs and the most creative people I've ever seen. Everyone is so supportive, fresh ideas, and always has great encouragement on my projects. Another thing I've come to the realization is there are so many challenges out there I love to do them it is just finding the time to enter all of them. I have yet to win one mostly I hope because they do a random winner and usually pick from many of us who have entered the challenge it bums me out sometimes especially when I pour my heart into a creation. But then again it is fun to play, enter the contest, and see all those other talented ladies who are creating also.
The following creations were both made for a few challenges I hope you enjoy and wish me luck!!

This Birthday card was made using my Gypsy, and the Cricut Expressions 2. I used the Gypsy Wanderings Page 29 for the music notes, Cricut Essentials for the large tag/frame, Happy Day was cut from Just a Note, and Forever Young cartridge for the layered flower. I love the colors Orange, Turquoise, and Green had to be used for one specific challenge, along with the Birthday theme.

I made a 5x7 card, the colors turned out beautiful. It's so hard to make these cards and layouts and actually give them away they are like my children I just don't want to part with them.
I love this layered flower, I got the inspiration from Capadia Designs Blog. She has such cute stuff over there. You can see her blog and great designs go here Capadia Designs Blog.
The cute music note is off the Gypsy Wanderings page 29 I did this for the M.A.G. Challenge by the Page I think I may not have made it in time for this challenge, oh well still turned out cute!
Closer up of the card. I also entered a challenge at Birthday Sundaes, had to have a Birthday them but anything goes. I also entered in in the Pink Stamper Color Challenge had to use the colors Orange, Green and Turquoise. 

This card was entered in the following challenges:


This card I made for  my Grandpa for Fathers Day. I am also entering it in the following blogs.Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, More than Favors challenge. Both had to be a Fathers Day or Manly creation.

I used my Gypsy and used the Micky Font cartridge to weld the GRANDPA together. I had ribbon on the bottom and crinkled it, the tag is made from Winter Frolic defiantly not just a winter cartridge.

Thanks for checking out my blog and wish me luck on the challenges!!


  1. Your card turned out great for the M.A.G challenge. Answer to question: I just went on google and searched for the pages for that cartridge. Since it was a preloaded cart, there were no overlay or book. So, that helps to go out and search for it so you have a cheat sheet. Hope that helps!
    Cute card.. love the ribbon on the bottom of the Grandpa card:)

  6. Very Cute Cards!! Love them!


  7. You did a great job on both of these! I totally agree with you about challenges. I think they should be based on the best design as it is a "CHALLENGE", but that's just my opinion. Luckily I'm part of an awesome challenge blog where we do pick the top five based on talent and creativity! :0) Thanks for joining us this week at FCCB!
