Create a Critter Birthday Card

I made this card for a girl I work with using Create a Critter and an acrylic stamp from the $1 section at Michaels.  Gotta love a bargain!

Daughter's 1st Birthday Invitation

My baby girl turns 1 next month and instead of doing the normal Evite I wanted to make her special invitations because as the 4th child she probably has not had as much "special" attention this year as I would have liked to have given her.  The theme for the party is pink and green polka dots because I am obsessed with that color combination right now!  Here is the prototype invitation.  I used a leftover bow my SIL made using ribbon I picked out for her to make a hair bow for Mady for the big day.  Only 25 more invitations and bows to go :)

Green, Yellow and Brown???

So green, yellow and brown are not colors I would normally pick for a card...however Robyn from was having a challenge and I needed a Thank You card for a Parent Party for my son's school that we went to over the weekend so I thought I would give it a try.  Here is the result:

I used Lyrical Letters for the Thank You and the dragon fly.  I used an embossing folder for the brown background.

Hippo Card

I needed a graduation card for a co-worker, I wanted to use Create a Critter so I decided to do HipHipHoray with a graduation twist.  I used Paper Dolls for the cap and diploma.  Hope you and my co-worker like it :)

Finally being productive...and I got Create A Critter!!!!

Today I was finally able to get my care package for my aunt in the mail (I used the Get Whale Soon card for her) and I was able to get the baby gift done for a girl at work (sorry the pictures are not so great).  Nothing fancy but just a cute little gift "box", I thought it packaged well!  I was also (finally) able to find Create a Critter at Michaels today.  Although I did not get to use it yet I plan to this week to make a graduation card and a few thank you cards.  Can't wait!  Well here is the baby gift.  Now off to work on making some journaling boxes for my 3rd graders class to write notes on for the end of the year teachers gift.  Good night :)

Mother's Day!

So what did I get for Mother's Day??? Not Create a Critter :(  But not for lack of trying.  My hubby did try to find it but Michael's was sold out.  Hopefully it will come in soon.  My girlfriend Stephannie on the other hand was lucky enough to find one and was nice enough to have me over Saturday.  We had planned a day to Scrapbook.  I did get about 6 pages done (which I of course forgot to take pictures of but will) and I also made a card using her Create a Critter.  I also made some cards today for Mother's Day (a trifold that Stephannie cut out and I decorated for my mom) and a card for my sister-in-law.  I enjoyed being able to play with the Cricut this weekend! Hopefully I can get some more scrapbooking done soon.  I also baked some cupcakes and made a flower out of them to take for the cook-out at my sister-in-laws today.  They were yummy!
