It's Christmas!

Time does fly!  I can't believe that it's Christmas time again.  This has been a great year for me and I am hoping bigger and better things are in store for us all in 2013!

I went cardmaking crazy this season and gave out cards to coworkers and friends.  So here are a few of the cards that I can always check out my Two Peas in a Bucket gallery for more of my creations. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Holidays to you!  See you next year!

Angry Birds

Angry Birds.  It's all the rage now.  I even have an app for the game on my cell phone.  Kind of a fun game. Ever since I was first introduced to the game I had wanted to make a greeting card for kids or adults who love the game.

I ran across a tutorial on the Pajama Crafters site (January 2012) on how to make the Red and Yellow bird using your Cricut.  I used the Cricut Craft Room and modified some of the instructions and here is what I came up with.

I was even inspired to make one of the new additions to the Angry Bird family, Pink Bird.  Its a first attempt but I think she came out cute anyway...

So if you are a paper crafter and like these little characters check out the Pajama Crafters blog.   See ya soon!

Fun Cards!

Yep, I have been away for a while.  I have been furiously preparing for an upcoming festival where I have a booth to sell my cards.  I have made over 300 cards to sell for that day.  The event is tomorrow so wish me luck!

I have made all sorts of cards but I am sharing today some really cute and fun cards I made to sell. 

Aren't they cute?  And I amazed myself because as I had mentioned some time ago that I like flowers and butterflies and bling.  But I can do other types of cards as well.

Thanks for checking in.  See you soon.

Happy Father's Day!

Hey people!  I hope you all are well.

I have started making more masculine cards.  They are a challenge for me because I love bows and butterflies, flowers and beads and all the pretty little things that don't really make great masculine cards.  So here is my attempt at some manly Father's Day cards...

Do you like them?  I hope so.  I personally love my Cricut cut frogin the "Hoppy Father's Day" card.  It came out kind of cute! 

Anyway, Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, and to the single mothers who do double duty!  See you soon!

Good Morning!

Good morning!  It's 3:30 am, and the insomniac I am was up making a couple of cards.  Yes...I do have to be at work at 8 am but oh well!  LOL.

I made a Thank You card for a special person who did a great favor for me.  The favor was huge and really appreciated.  He hasn't seen it yet so you will get to see it before he does. 

I don't make a lot of masculine cards because I love pretty flowers, birds, butterflies, and all that pretty girly stuff, but I like how this masculine card came out.

I also made another card this morning which could be masculine or feminine and could be used for almost any occasion:

So  cute!  Hope you like them as much as I do! 

Oh well, Work in 4 1/2 hours!  See you soon!  Good night!

I'm back!

Hey all!  I'm sorry I dissed you for a while.  I even missed Mother's Day here so Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers.  But everyday is Mother's Day for me! 

I was so very busy the last few weeks.   I recently returned from a 7 day cruise to Bermuda and had an awesome time!   What a beautiful country.  I definitely want to go back again.  And the cruise boat!  This was my first and I just couldn't believe it.  A hotel on water.  That truly was a vacation of a lifetime!

Me on the balcony of my cabin headed to Bermuda

So I didn't miss work or my daily routine as I was cruising...but I sure did miss making my cards.  They did have some scrapbooking activities on board where they supplied you with embellishments and a box and frame to alter, but no scissors or glue.  It wasn't what I expected but I went anyway as the junkie I am.  LOL.

Anyway, got rid of my sea legs, and settled back into the routine and made a couple of cards.  So here they are...


So there you go.  And many more to come.  I am still trying to get into making wedding invites and other invites as well.  Hopefully I will get to them soon. 

Until next time...

More Fun Cards!

Hey again!  Twice in one day.  Since I don't post as often as I like I'd thought I'd make it up today for lost time.

I love making beautiful, floral cards.  The more butterflies and birds and bling the better!  Yet a lot of people don't share the love I have for nature themed cards.  So I do try to make a lot of fun cards as well. 

Since I am in a cardmaking frenzy right now I made a few fun cards that I am going to post for your enjoyment.  Here goes...

There you go!  Done for today!  Hope you enjoyed them!

I'm still trying to work on my picture taking skills.   One day I'll get that together and we will be in business!  Smile! 

Thanks for peeking in!

Here Comes the Bride!

Hey!  Long time no hear.  I've been busy and sort of neglectful to my babies.  But I do love making my cards!

I decided to make some wedding cards after shopping at Michael's and buying a cute little bride and groom stamp by "Stampendous" called the Happy Couple.  It was on sale and of course I had one of Michael's famous coupons so it was dirt cheap!  I love to shop at my Michael's!

Anyway, I went crazy making some wedding cards using the same stamp and here are four of them that I want to share.  Hope you love them!

I think they would make beautiful invitations as well.  They almost make me want to get married!  NOT!  LOL!  Anyway, I hope you like them. 

I'm in a cardmaking frenzy right now so I will be back later today with some more of my creations.  Until then...
