Just some fun cards I made.  A birthday frog, A wedding card, and an all occasion card.

A fun sock monkey card for any occasion.
My husband and I went to a placed called Main Street Grill on our first date.  It was one of those cute little cafes with iron tables and chairs on the sidewalk with an awning above. I didn't know, but he had gone to the restaurant before he picked me up and talked to the manager.  While we were eating the manager came out with this big bouquet of red roses and a stuffed bunny.  He had left them with her earlier to surprise me. It did! Oh it was so precious. I still have those roses and the bunny. On our first anniversary, we went back to that restaurant and sat at the same table.  This is an Anniversary card I made to look like the place we had our first date and celebrated our first year together.  He loved the card and "said oh this is Main Street." He knew, I was impressed.

This is a 10X12 house my husband built in my in-laws back yard.  I call it The Cricut House.  It has a 4ft porch.  He built this so I would have a place of my own for crafting while we were staying at his parents house.  It has hardwood floors, a ceiling fan, and etched trim.  It's so beautiful inside.  He did such an amazing job building it. I took pictures of the entire process, start to finish.  Here is a lay out of my husband painting the porch railing.

This is the invitation I made for my Grand daughter's 3rd birthday party.  I got the idea to use a lady bug for the card because every time she would have a lady bug land on her, she would just laugh and laugh.  There is nothing more precious then a baby's laughter.  This card was published in the 2013 issue of Cricut Birthdays magazine.

This is a scrapbook page I did of my little dog, Turtle.  He was eating treats out of the daisys and it looked like he was smelling the flowers.  The flowers I put in the lower right corner is an extension of the flowers in the picture.  It just brings them to life.  This page was published in the April 2013 issue of Cricut magazine.

This is a set of cards I made to represent the four seasons.  I thought the bike in each setting was just cute.  These cards were published in the 2013 May issue of Cricut magazine.

These are the Christmas Cards I made last year.  I loved all of them and It was so hard to choose which one to send to which loved one. I sold a lot of these styles to customers and was happy to receive positive feed back.  I love making cards. 

This is one of the invitations I sent out for my family beach vacation.
I thought a sock monkey in pink was a good way to get out the message to sock it to cancer.

This is the Birthday card I made for my husband's last birthday.  I always want to make specials cards for him because he has been so good to me about my crafting.  He goes with me to check out all the fabulous finds that I have found on Craigslist. Gives me his opinion before I purchase stuff.  He has hauled a lot of stuff home for me.  He is a pretty wonderful guy.

This is the birthday invitation I made for my beautiful grand daughter's 4th birthday party.  We were on a family vacation on the Oregon coast, so we decided to have an Under the Sea party theme.  It turned out really cute.
I made her name, Nicole, with mermaids holding each letter for a center piece.  The party turned out so nice.  We all had such a good time.
