For a friend

As of late, a few friends and I have begun making these cute stick pins for our crafty projects. 
Well dont all cute stick pins deserve a cute pincushion ?
Laura introduced me to tea cup cushions a few weeks ago...and could not resist.
I found this little 'ice cream' bowl and place that is a reproduction of 1930's Royal Albert collection.
Not a tea cup, but pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.

Whatcha think ?  :)

At the Beach :)

So whoever has this Cricut Cartridge and has not used it.. PULL IT OUT OF HIDING!   I LOVE THIS CART !  When I first purchased I was not sure that I would use it much and was not sure how small I would be able to cut the images.  I really did think the Wall Decor and More cartridge was for larger cuts for wall decals.  Boy was I glad when I discovered it was not.   I used the boat and water cuts for this layout of Me, my Husband and Cody at the beach.  I do have so many more photo's to scrap and will be using the themes from this cart. to complete this trip.
I like to keep events in the same paper scheme's and themes consistant.  I think of it as creating another  'chapter' in my scrapbook.   Hope you like and that this inspires you to get going already and use the carts that are collecting dust  :)
I can now scratch off another Collectors Cut Challenge complete.  :) 
Be sure and check out the Collectors Cut blog where my friends have created other unique items using carts from their own collections.

Happy Cards !!!

For my the last challenge I pulled up my ol' trusty jar and out came sticks with Mini Monograms and Smiley Cards.  For any of you gals that have the Gypsy, Cricut gave a freebie in 2010 called Smiley Cards. Not a cart that we can go out and purchase. I never really looked hard at this cart but it does have lots of potential!
For this Challenge my scallop card bases are from the Mini Monograms cartridge, the inside circle is also MM cart. I love using the dashed cut so ribbon can be sewn through. !
In fact Im new to cards, new to Peachy Keen stamps and addicted to both now.  Im entering this card in this weeks Peachy Keen challenge - " Sew Super Cute ".  hee hee.
For the small cards, I took a emoticon off of the Smiley cards and used the hide contour. I know that left me with nothing but a yellow circle, but i wanted so very bad to try out my new Peachy Keen stamps.  =}
I also used the hide contour on my flower that was also taken from the Smiley Cards cart. That flower was a frown face and cant have a tear eyed happy card can I. For all three, yes ladies I still love my stickers!!!! I put birthday theme in the two smaller ones and a sweet quote in the flower one. Perfect for a close friend or mother !
" If I had a single flower for every time I think about YOU, I could walk forever in my garden ".

Enjoy :)

The inside............ :)

Smaller Birthday for Boy and Girl.... these cuties will come in handy at the office.

Their insides each have a birthday themed sticker.  Who can really get away from stickers ?? 

And the Set....

Enjoy these happy cards.  They certainly put a smile on my face  :)

I Luv U!

A second post !! gotta love that.  
For the Collectors Cut challenge I have already mentioned that I drew out Mini Monograms and Smiley cards, however I felt this card deserved a post all its own.
I did not use the Smiley cards cart on it at all.  In fact the I Luv U... is from the MM cart and I could not resist!  and another opportunity to use my PK stamps!  new addiction...

I am sure this one will be for my sweet husband !!!
