Happy Wednesday!  Everyone looking forward to the weekend to get some crafty time or some outside time in?  ;)

Today's card I know I needed to make summer.  It is definitely getting warm here and my kids can't wait for school to get out and go swimming.  One of the best summer carts I think is Life's a Beach.  Looking through the booklet I wanted to use a cut I never used before and thought these fish were too cute, especially once I put a Peachy Keen eye on them.  ;)

Exploring Cricut Daily Post

Happy Wednesday!  I love when the weeks just seem to fly by!  ;)  Well another Wednesday means another post for Exploring Cricut.

Well I decided go to with my new favorite cartridge...again!  Doodlecharms.  All of a sudden I can't seem to stay away from this cartridge.  I saw this flower in the booklet and new the middle would just be perfect for a little Peachy Keen Face.  Isn't she just a cutie?  ;)

Exploring Cricut - Here comes Summer

Happy Monday!  It is time for another challenge at Exploring Cricut, Here Come Summer.  Since Summer is right around the corner, it is time to get us all in the mood for that special time of year. 

Of course I realized after I made my card that we were supposed to use two cricut cuts.  OOPS!  Sorry Diane!  ;)

I went with my new favorite cartridge, Doodlecharms.  I seem to keep coming back to this cartridge lately.  It seems to just go perfect with all the ideas I have in mind.  I will try and use another cartridge next time.  I think I have another cart or two in my collection.  HA HA!

Happy Wednesday.  We are half way through the week.  Yeah!  ;)

Time for my daily post for Exploring Cricut.  With summer coming, time to break out those summer cuts.  I decided to go with the popsicle cut from Doodlecharms and just cute it up a bit.  I just love those Peachy Keen stamps, especially this new set.    Hope you like it!

Exploring Cricut - Mother's Day Blog Hop

Happy Monday and Welcome to the Exploring Cricut's Mother's Day Blog Hop.  We are all showcasing projects for our mother's!

I decided to go with this just adorable little bear from CAC2.  Now of course I wanted to use a Happy Mother's Day stamp and I had just bought some.  Do you think I could find them?  Of course not!  LOL!  So instead I went with a more general sentiment, but I am still thinking of my mother so I think it works. :)

Exploring Cricut - Daily Post

Happy Wednesday.  Just a few more days and we can have another weekend.  Anyone ready for another one?  I am!  ;)

Today's card was done for a 7 year old boy.  It was quite hard not to go all crazy, as it usually is when I do these birthday cards my kids go to.  First of all, they just want whats inside and don't care about the outside.  LOL!  But I guess you can't blame them.  I know we did it all as kids too. 

So this card is pretty simple, but still cute.  ;)  Hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. Our challenge is called "April Showers Bring May Flowers". You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft using at least one of any kind of flower.

I went with a cart I have not used in forever, Walk in my garden.  I just spend the weekend with a good friend of mine and I wanted to send her a card to say thank you for taking in my crazy brood.    It is a very simple card, but that seems to what I am doing lately.  But I really liked the contrast of the black and white and color.

Exploring Cricut - Daily Post

Happy Wednesday.  Hope geveryone is having a good day!  Another Wednesday and another daily post for Exploring Cricut.

Have you ever had a card you were really happy with and you were going to take a picture of it and put it on your blog and you go to look up the picture and realize you forgot to take the picture?  UGH!  One of my peeps always says to make two of a card you make so you have a spare, so I just made the card again.  ;)
The original card was for my daughter's student teacher who's was leaving her classroom, so this card will just go in my stash for that special someone.  ;)

Exploring Cricut Challenge - It's a Spring Thing

Welcome to our new challenge here at Exploring Cricut. This challenge is called "It's a Spring Thing".  You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft that must include at least  1 button, 2 Cricut cuts, and 3 colors of pattern paper or cardstock.

I wanted to go with a  cute little bird since all the birds are finally starting to come back.  Soon our flowers will be here too, but for now she can use a little paper one.  I even put her on a little action wobble!  She just made me happy and I plan on sending this to my mom for all she has done for me lately!

Exploring Cricut - Daily Post

Happy Wednesday!

Finally, I have been trying all morning to get my post up and Blogger has been giving me a hard time. 

Today's card is a shaped card from Happily Ever After.  One of those carts I said I am never using again after trying to put together one of the princesses!  ;)  But my daughter had a birthday party to go to.  Her favorite princess is Cinderella.  I made her a banner, which I will post tomorrow.  So figured I would make her a glass slipper card to go along with her banner.  I know it is a pretty simple card, but there is lots of stickles around the outside and the 5 year old who got this just loved it.  It was nice to use a cart that I thought I was NEVER going to use again.  LOL! 

Paper:  Recollections and Coredinations
Nice and simple!  ;)

Exploring Cricut - Happy Easter

Happy Monday and it is time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut.   This week our challenge is called "Happy Easter". You are to create a card, layout, or papercraft celebrating Easter.

I will admit mine is not exactly Easter.  I just needed something for spring.  I figured this would work for Easter and go right into spring, if it ever arrives.  Plus I was happy with the way this came out and wanted to leave it out for more than just a week!  ;)  I just received the faces on the flowers they just make me happy!

Here is another treat that I found on Friday, so of course I had to quick make them.  I found them here.  Are these not just too cute!  I already had my pots in mind to make, but when I saw these I had to make them!  So after a quick trip to Target yesterday I was able to get all my supplies.
