I Woof You!

On to the next V-day card!

My niece is in love with pets but unfortunately cannot have one.  So I thought this little pooch would be perfect for her Valentine's card. I am loving that paper by Pebbles.  Hearts and kraft colored paper...what more could you ask for?

How Wonderful Life Is...


I am so happy it's Friday.  I will just spend the weekend unwinding, catching up on some TV shows and catching up on some rest.  Oh, how I love lazy weekends!!

I finally got a start on my Valentine's cards.  I love this sentiment on the Yours Truly element sticker sheet.  I think it's perfect to send to my nina (Godmother).  This sticker sheet was full of sentiments that I adore so you will, of course, be seeing more of them.


I tried my hand at mixing pattern papers and I'm not sure how well I did.  I also tried to keep it simple.  I'm not sure yet how I really feel about it but it's really starting to grow on me.  Especially with that sticker!

2012 First!!

I can't believe this is the first crafty thing I've done in 2012.  And one of my resolutions was to make at least one thing a week.  But a new job has been killing me lately and I just haven't been up to playing with my Cricut.  And I got some new things for Christmas, too!! =(

My niece did a really good job this semester by bringing home all good grades.  So, I decided to make her a little treat.  I got this idea from Alex over at You Had Me At Craft.  Except I made this little beaut with an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of black card stock.  It's real simple, but real cute.  It was looking a little bit blah, but I added some Stickles to it and dressed it up a bit.  I know it's not much but I was so happy to be making something with my hands (finally!), so I'm happy with how it came out.
