Create a Critter Cow card

I finally decided to start making some cards to send in for Operation Write Home last night.
I like to make all different cards but wanted to keep it all very easy and simple.  I used Create a Critter and made 14 cards.  Hoping to make at least 11 more this weekend.
I'm not sure I'll show them all so thought I'd just share this one for today.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Cricut less cards

Wow, where have I been??  I have been busy crafting, just seriously neglecting my blog lately!!
I made a small 8x8 album for my future sister in law's bridal shower, I made an exploding box easter basket - got the tutorial for that from Paper Phenomenon - and I've done a ton of personal scrapbooking.  Easily 100+ pages!!  Not sure if I've made anything else recently but I've been keeping busy that's for sure.
Tonight my dear husband and son went to AC Moore to buy me some glue dots, they ended up getting me 4 different kinds and picked up a pack of clear stamps that were clearanced!! I tell you, they are worse than me!!  Anywho, I wanted to test out the new stamps so I made 2 cricutless cards.  My son than wanted to make a card so I've included a pic of his as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by, perhaps I'll get back in to the groove of the blog and start posting a little more regularly!!

Watermelon thank you card

Mary at was is also having a challenge/giveaway for National Scrapbooking day.  You just have to use fruit in some sort of project.  I did this one this morning and my son did help me out.  He absolutely LOVES watermelon and we even went and bought some today to eat at our picnic we had at the park!!  I just wanted to keep it quick and simple and something I can just have on hand for when I need a quick Thank You!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
