Bearly A Minute

I thought it would be fun to make something from my cartridge "CREATE A CRITTER". A fellow scrapping friend let me use her stamp one day, so I stamped a few sentiments from her collection of stamps.....and today I felt this cute little character would be appropriate to make a card, actually, (3) cards (lol)...they worked up so quickly I decided to make them in various colors.
We do get busy in our lives and we sometimes forget to take time to say hello to some close buddies.
the recipe are as follows.....card base: recollections
                                         color card stock cut at 4 3/4x6
                                         strip of printed paper were cut at 1 1/2" (yellow & pink card)
                                         strip of printed paper cut @ 3" ( blue card)
each strip was punched with MS floral design, matching/co-ordinating ribbon was added on top of border strip,
the bear was cut & layered at 4", I added matching ribbon on top of each bear, and the skirt was also cut @ 4", wiggly eyes are soo cute, added some doodling around the bear, and I also use MS butterfly punch.
Over all, these cards will sure put a smile on a girlfriends face, dontcha think?
Until my next creation is posted, have a great creative week!!

Design Team Call

Hello fellow crafters', I am entering the challenge to become one of the designers for 360o (three hundred-sixty degrees) the challenge is to create a card or layout with Lime Green and a Bug in it. Green is my favorite color so this was something I definitely wanted to get involved in. Here is the description of my D.T. Card:
I used a store bought 5x6 1/2 card, cut a background green cardstock @ 4 1/4x5 & embossed with "Swirls" folder through the cuddlebug, added a stamped sentiment, framed it out with green cardstock, and black at the bottom I added a strip of printed paper 1 1/2x2" at the bottom. I added some lime green metallic rick-rack ribbon, I layered on top with a grass die cut at 4" from the cartridge "Create a Critter", I also used the Worm from the same cartridge also cut at 4". I thought the wiggly eyes would give it some character. Last but not least, I added my extra doodling in white & black. The sentiment says 'HEARD YOU CAUGHT A BUG" this card should cheer up anyone who is down with the bug!!!

Hello fellow crafters....I am finally certified to do Health Insurance Policies for Business owners/employees. I was in training for 4 weeks and let me tell brain felt like it was fried daily with  retention of information.
With all of that behind me now, I am still free to work for myself as an independent agent representing AFLAC!
I have already decided to work Mon-Thurs. and take Friday as my off day weekly....afterall a girl has to have some play time (lol)...slowly but surely I will be able to get into a routine of  working & helping others and spending my off work time on creating and having time to share my creations with you.
Since this is my first weekend of offtime--away from books & brochures to study...I decided to create something from my Cricut Imagine ...I chose to make the following cards for mother's day, I sent out a few of these to close friends and realtives and of course my mom.
Hope you like how they turned out....enjoy until next time
