This is my project for the Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday challenge. The challenge this week was to have a sunshine in our project. I made these cards for my mother to give out to friends. Don't look too closely at my bases. For some reason I could not measure tonite. :)

This is my card for cricut challenge B week. I used the cartridge Boys will be Boys. It was for our babysitter's 3 year old son. I have been loving the shaped cards lately so here is another one to enjoy!

Good Morning all. I have been in the shaped card fling lately. :) So here is another one to share.
Last week was my daughter's first day of school. Due to a miscommunication she went home on the wrong bus. When her bus came to drop her off and she was not on I freaked a little. :) But called the school, figured ot where she was and got her home safe. The secretary was awesome so I wanted to apologize to her for the confusion. So hopefully she likes this card.
Stamps: Faces from PK and Thanks from My Creative Time with Emma

I ended up creating two cards for the cricut challenge. I am part of a challenge on the cricut boards to use our cricut cartridge more. Since this is A week and I have 4 a carts, figured I better make at least two cards.
Now this card was for my mother for Grandparents day. I asked my dd what she should make (she is 4 1/2). She said a pink cow! Well if we have previously made a princess alligator, figured a pink cow is not a big deal. How else do you get strawberry milk?! :)
I also used two stamps on her I have never used also. Did not have anything for grandparents day, so we went with a pun on I love you. So not only am I using carts I have not used in a while I am also pushing myself to use some stamps I just had to have and have sat in my drawer for a while! :)
Cut: Cow from Animal Kingdon with all layers
Face Stamp: PK
Sentiment Stamp: My Pink Stamper
Happy Grandparents Day and a somber 9/11. I have been watching a bunch of the coverage today. Just amazing to think it has been 10 years. So much has changed in that time.
Well on to some crafting. I have been working on a few projects over the past few days. I am going to start with the 3x3 cards I made. I made two for people at work and then ended up making 2 more for my mother and aunt for all they do for me. Very simple card. But I think they came out so cute!

I needed to make a card for my niece. I probably would have gone to one of my regular carts. I joined a challenge on the cricut boards to use the carts we have. This is a great idea for me since I probably have close to 80! :) This being A week you need to use a cartridge starting with A that you have not used. I decided to use All Mixed up. This is really going to be a fun challenge.
Carts: Tag shape, shadow and circle from All Mixed Up. Scalloped circle from Easter 2010

This week at Peachy Keen, the Lets Face it Friday challenge was to create something back to school. Luckily, because of Tropical Storm Irene, I have been working on these longer than usual. School was supposed to start for DD (kindergarten) and DS (preschool) on August 29, but Irene had another thing to say about that! :) So school starts for my DD tomorrow and DS on Thursday since preschool got flooded. So because of the delay I get to enter these in the LFIF challenge.
