Sweet New Baby Girl Card

Mowed yard this morn. With forecast of 50% rain Fri & 60% Sat I figured I would help hubby and mow today. Got the back mowed first, then front, side & alley. Surprisingly it took less than 1 hr to mow & our yard areas are big. We had bought an electric mower to be more green/gas conservative but the charge would only be enough to do back or front so we sold the electric at yard sale and bought another gas mower.


Created this Baby card using 3 different Cricut cartridges listed in Supplies List below. Used sketch which I rotated 90 degrees to the left that you can see below. Added wobble to Bassinet for action movement. Stamped sentiment on Diaper Pin.

espressly thank you Coffee Card

Created this with a Coffee/espresso theme. Stamped Hero Arts Coffee/espresso on Kraft brown cardstock and cut it out with a Spellbinder die. Used 2 different Hero Arts stamps for sentiment. From one HA stamp I cut the word 'espressly' from 'espressly for you' and from a different HA stamp I used 'thank you.' Used Canvas Corp Coffee Stamps on Kraft cardstock to complement the Coffee/Latte theme. Hand tore edges of Canvas Corp Coffee Stamps on Kraft cardstock. Made the card hold a gift card; appropriately a Thank You Starbucks gift card. Added brown pearls for bling.
