This was made with the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge.

I love this cartridge it is so versatile.

Cricut inspiration and more ....

The inspiration for the card with the bees is from a card I saw made on you tube.

A while back I found this wonderful paper at Michaels and just fell in love with it.
Today I made 2 cards with it and might make more tomorrow.

Cute cute I have to admit ... made this sachet that is filled with aroma beads. Next to it is a quarter, so you can see it is not very big. The beads are not very strong smelling just enough for the lingerie or sock drawer,or maybe for the purse. Off to make more :0)

Crochet Projects

I made 2 new crochet projects. 1 was another trivet for my mom and it's already on the way to her, all the way to Germany :0)
The other is a sachet. This is my first sachet.
I played around a bit yesterday and this is what happened. 
I think it's cute. 
I will make more and think I will post the pattern here.
So be patient with me and I promise I will come up with a pattern.
I have NEVER done a crochet pattern so this will be very 
NEW to me.

Our friend and neighbors are getting married tomorrow. So, as a gift I thought we give them something unique.
Of course I made a card, and that was inspired my my cyber friend Valita.
Her heart couple was so cute I had to make it for this card. You can find her video tutorial for it HERE on her blog.

The "money tree" was pretty much all my idea. I made bows with REAL money and attached them to a tree branch. I used some glitter spray first for the branch and some little white flowers. 
Well, you see the results below....

Amigurumi Duck & Turtle ...

I love to craft other things besides cards. This week I found some amigurumi patterns online and thought I give it a try. This is my first time trying anything like that. I know the basics of crocheting but did not really know how to read patterns, but I got the hang of it after a while. So here are some pictures of the duck & turtle I made.
Here are the links to the patterns I used:

I would like to thank these ladies for posting these patterns FREE on their blogs :0)

New Dies ...

I got some new Spellbinders dies and love the look of them on this card. 
These are actually available at a local big box craft store here in town.
The border was done with a Martha S. craft punch, inside and out.
I used a  strip of the contrasting paper on the inside, to show the punched edge more on the outside. 
It is a really pretty contrast when you close it (not shown).

On the castle I have used my watercolor crayons, that were tucked away under a bunch of paper and where crying for me to use them again.
