Cricut Circle weekely challenge

Good afternoon my friends,
I was so nice to come down into my craft area and create again, it has been too long. Today I made my first shaker card for the "sweet summertime" challenge on the Cricut cirle blog. I used Preserves Cricut cart and the stamp is from My Pink Stamper-fruit and veggie puns. On the inside of the shaker I punch out watermelon seeds. Hope you like it. I will see you back again this week with another project. Take care.

ps-I have tried to go to many of your blogs to "follow" you back and many won't let me. I'm having hubby look into it since I'm not very good with computers.

Eiffel Tower meets Teresa Collins

Hello my friends,
I made one of my favorite projects this weekend. I had gotten an Eiffel Tower wood cut-out from a Cricut Circle meet-up and wasn't sure what to do with it. This weekend I got thinking and came up with a great project. I had the honor of helping Teresa Collins in her class at the Dallas Stampede and decided I would use a photo from that day and her line "Timeless". Everything on the tower is from TC line except for the string of pearls I added to highlight the necklace Teresa was wearing. The sides are glittered with Martha Stewart white/clear glitter. I LOVE this project and I can't wait to show Teresa. Have a great Sunday.
ps-I even took a half-way decent photo.=)

Mothers Day card

Good evening,
I went to a crop all day Saturday and colored with Copics the whole time, so many projects will be coming. This week is a bit crazy because we are still working on kitchen and then I have to go help my daughter move  Wed night-Sat, so little time for crafting.

I made this card for my mom using Teresa Coliins papers (timeless collection) and then stamped a chandellier on the inside. I hope she likes it. I'm working on a Teresa Collins project tonight and hope to finish tomorrow so I can show it to you. Have a wonderful evening.
