Barn Yard Theme

This is the last week of the Barn Yard theme.  I made another card using digital images from Digi Scrap Kits.
I purchased the chickens and it came with 9 images and 1 background all for $1.00!!  That is a great deal, and the images print out so crisp and clean.  If  you have not had a chance to check them out, please follow the link on the right side of my blog and see for yourself the beautiful images you can choose from for just $1.00!

I decided to make a 4 x 9 card so I could incorporate more than one image.  I inked the edges and wanted a farm feel to the card, so I randomly inked the front of the card also.  Hope you like it and hope you join in my challenge.

Easter Layout Challenge

My project for Queen of my Craftroom for an Easter layout, I used an adorable bunny from Trinia Clark on
Digi Scrap Kits.  I wanted to keep the stamping very light so I decided to use versamark ink.  This is the first time I have tried using versamark and I have to tell you, I LOVE IT!!  I can't wait to take some Easter photo's so I can finish this page.  I think it came out really cute.  I hope you like it.

3-D challenge

Queen of my Craftroom challenged us to make a 3-D project.  I chose to make a heart basket using Tags Bags, Boxes and More cricut cartridge and place 4 3 x 3 cards inside.  I used the fit to page feature on my expression and it cut the heart basket at 6 inches.  All the critters I placed on the cards and on the front of the basket were from Create a Critter.

Snail Mail is the Best!!

E-mail is quick but snail mail is awesome.  How many of us go to the mailbox and get nothing but bills and junk mail.  It is so nice in this electronic age to actually get a card in the mail - even nicer when it his homemade with love.  A card that was made with just you in mind.  I got this awesome card from my sister, Patti the other day and it just made my day.  To get a card out the blue for no reason. 
I love it!  Thanks Patti - love you bunches!!

Creative Sisters Challenge #5

Hi everyone - hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  After the huge snowstorm we had on Friday (14 inches of snow) we were able to get out and walk the dogs and enjoy the 50 degree temps. 

I am so so excited because over on http://www.pattilynncreations.blogspot.com/ Patti is featuring an awesome digital artist Trina Clark.  I LOVE her images and could not wait to create some Easter cards.  With the one kit I bought ($1.00) I was able to make four cards featuring a different image for all of them. 
The images are high quality, crisp and clear - so easy to use.  You can shop her site at http://www.digiscrapkits.com/ where you will find thousands of clipart images, digital overlays, scrapbook kits in every subject you can imagine.  I really love her primitive art too.  She is just fabulous!!

Hop on over to Patti's site and play along with us.  Her theme is to create a project using bunnies.  We are featuring digital this time, but if you don't want to use digital, feel free to create a project using your cricut.

I am giving away a set of precision scissors from Provo Craft, since you will need a good set of scissors to cut out the digital images that you may win.  So please leave me a comment, hop over to Patti's blog and join in the fun.
