Summer Card :)

Happy Thursday:)
I wanted to share a card I made last night.. actually I made 10 of them for a swap :)
The theme this month is "Summer" and it was so fun to make !!
I used my Silhouette, Cameo to cut out the bike and the "hello Summer". The clouds were punched with two sizes of Fiskars punches. I embossed the card base with a "Paper Studio" birds embossing folder from Hobby Lobby.  Twine is from Paper used was, DCWV "Mod Retro" stack and the basket was a scrap of brown card stock that I embossed with a Embossalicious, small dot folder. The bike and sentiment are from the Silouette store.

Thanks so much for stopping by.. Hugs, Jen

St. Patricks Day Card

I wanted to share a St. Patricks day card with you.. I am loving the "Teddy Bear Parade" Cricut cartridge.. so many cute images ! I purchased mine at Wal-mart.   For this card I used some green cardstock from my stash for the card base.  I used four different Washi tapes and layered them diagonally on a white piece of cardstock and matted that on plain white cardstock.. whew !!  

 I cut out the teddy bear at 3 1/2 " with all scraps, and added yellow Stickles to the pot of gold.. The felt four leaf clover is from Diaso.

This is the inside of the card.  The clover punch and the border is also from Diaso.  Sentiment says..
"May your blessings outnumber the
Shamrocks that grow and may trouble
avoid you where ever you go.."
This card was so fun to make and I know I will be using this cartridge a lot..
Thanks for stopping by and you can also visit me on you tube.. sgit56 or Jennifer Cruz..

Hello Kitty card

Happy Friday !!!!
I'm back with a little card share. I'm in a card swap on youtube with Betty (scrappassion01) and the theme is Hello Kitty Spring... I joined because at my age I needed an excuse to play with the Hello Kitty cartridge I borrowed from my friend Lisa, thanks Lisa :)... I used the DCWV "Pastel Cardstock Stack" and the Prima "Meadowlark"  6x6 pad. The little purple flowers are from Michaels. I used my Cricut Imagine to cut and print the topper. Pearls, google eyes, pom pom, and ribbon from my stash. I think they turned out very cute.
I just noticed a little butterfly fell... lol... will have to fix that !! Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Jennifer
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always
greet it in a garden..

Hi everyone,.. Well, I'm finally getting around to my new years resolution, to pay more attention to my blog and I can't think of a better way than with my new digi stamp by Sherri Baldy.. Sherri has a naming game on facebook to name her stamps and I won with the name "Pippa" for this adorable little girl !!  I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils, I'm a little out of practice so don't judge :)  I used the "Happiness" paper pad by gcdstudios ( hobby Lobby )  I added a lollipop flower I made with some lavendar satin, the rest of the flowers are from " Wild Orchid Crafts ". Trim and butterfly from my stash..and added lots of stickles..  I had so much fun coloring her and I can't wait to color up some more images:)  Thanks so much for stopping by,and go check out Sherri's etsy store,  hugs, Jennifer
