Water For Elephant cards

Hello Everyone,

I hope ya'l had a relaxing weekend.We had some awesome weather this weekend & did a little gardening. I've been learning to use my gypsey and practiceing what I learn. Thankfully there are a lot of good videos out there to give you a hand.
Me & my sisters are Wild about Robert Pattenson and are planning on watching Water for Elephants when it comes out. What better way than send out invites & make it a Rob night.

I used Summer vacation cartridge for the Circus Tent,Animanl Kingdom for the Elephant,Country Life for the tub of water. I messed ups so much trying to cut out the tent that I gave up and painted the tent with acrylique paint & used Scribbles 3D paint for the yellow on the tent. Well I went to sleep still thinking about what I did wrong..& it was that I grouped the tents & copied them. So every time I changed the setting on the tent & shadow...whatever one I changed last was what both stayed. You have to ungroup!! Then I kept thinking I need water! The Elephant needs a water trough !! I learned in the process and I really like the way it turned out.
I made this card for the following challenges:
More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday - Manly Card (circus is for men right?)

Minnie Card

Hello Everyone,

I hope your weekend was an enjoyable one. I played with my new Gyspy & watched a few videos.
It's a lot like Design Studio..& NOT.I created this card & it reminded me of my girls teenage years.
Card Recipe:
Card dimensions are 6.5 x 5, Minnie cut at 4 inches, Radio cut at 1.5, stove cut at 1.4th.
I cut the stove and turned it on its side to resemble an end table. Musical notes paper made by Design Originals. The Wooden floor cut from wallpaper swatches, all other paper cut from my scrap pile. I also used Liquid embossing by Plaid on Minnie’s eyes and nose. Glitter Glue and Martha Stewart glitter for a little bling on Minnie’s clothes.

Sugar & Spice

Whew!! I made it through an awesome weekend with my family. The drive to Corpus is only a 4 hour drive...but trying to cram every minute with memories, is exausting! We had a tea party with real tea sets sandwiches and cookies. It was great!
I had another glitch with my Cricut Imagine!! This will be my second machine I'm having to send back! The positive thing about Provocraft is the process was real easy.The bar that holds the mat only stays up for the first cut. Then it won't go back up unless you turn the machine on and off.This card was made useing The Cricut Imagine.

My Thank You card & Gift to my sister

We are all Twilight fans, and my sister is a closet Twilight lover! To top it off she is way to easy to make her blush. The tulip flower was inspired by a post from DCWV. I used Prima flowers and acrylic paint.I bought 2 Cartridges and thought she would appreicate it more...than going the the hassle of returning it.

Hello Everyone,

Today I finished my card set for my Mom & my Owl card for the My Pink Stamper challenge,and Stamping Vacation.
I rarely play The Pink Stampers challenges, because there is so many you have to compete with. This time I thought…nothing ventured nothing gained.

I really enjoy making my owl; I can see myself using this cart more.

Exploring Forever Young

Hello Everyone,
Today I went to Fort Polk La to see my daughter. I took the day off and drove the 3 hrs for lunch and another 3 back. It was fun, but made me wish for more time with her. Say a prayer for her…she starts a new job on post, Friday. If you know Fort Polk and the surrounding areas you know jobs are in short supply. Small country living with one road as the main shopping area, & post shopping is atrocious. We were a military family and stationed in Fort Polk for a year. Thankfully his brigade moved to Fort Hood & I loved it there. Unfortunately for my daughter her husband’s next duty station isn’t coming up any time soon. As much as she despises Fort Polk I am happy she is close by.
This week I’m exploring my new Forever Young cartridge. My New Year resolution was to use my carts more. Exploring each cartridge is so much fun, why did I wait so long?
