This card was all cut out with the Cricut. I made the fence by welding long rectangles and then after it was printed out, just angled the top ends with a pair of scissors. I don't have a fence in my collection of cartridges (gasp!), so had to make my own. I like that you can make things with The Craft Room if you don't have the image you need. You can create right on the screen by piecing together items and welding them, so much fun! Click on the picture to enlarge it to see my little worm crawling on the fence! This turned out to be a happy card, makes me smile!

Happy Thoughts and now this one, Just Because. I got the idea of the star-burst or rainbow from one of the Splitcoast Challenges. I cut all the pieces and edged them in brown, then laid them all out and it makes a perfect start-burst. Made several of these cards with different stamps on the front. And the hardest part for me is always paper matching. Well finally got one of my little 4x6 (or 5x7)books of papers that we all collect and used several out of one of the books and all the papers go together perfectly! Hope you have a great day 'just because'!

Opps, really late in posting these cards! These are cards from our October Stamp Club. As always, I changed up a few of them to suit my needs, but all were the same general idea. I really like the bottom right card, looks like a little file folder! Thanks, Diane, for putting up with me for always changing things!

I wanted to make some cards that had bible verses on them. Found another blog (Word Art Wednesday) that had some free downloads, and came up with these four. The inside I left blank so that you could write your own thoughts on the inside. All of them are basically the same, but all are different. Used different Cuttlebug Folders and embellishments.

These cards are free cuts that were on the Cricut a while back. Normally don't send out Halloween cards, but thought that these four were really cute. Have a new Brick Cuttlebug Folder and was able to use it on the first two, really like the look of it! The ghost was put on with a Wobble Spring, so you could actually make him move. And the little mice on the bottom card . . . had them running around in the inside of the card too! Hope you had a safe Halloween!

Have had this stamp set from Inky Antics for a long time and never made a card with it because I just could not figure out how to lay it all out. Finally figured it out and think that it turned out cute! It has been a long time since I made a one layer card, I stamped directly on to the card front. I colored all with Copics. For the flyswatter, I wanted to make it so that you could see the bug underneath. I cut out the inside of the flyswatter and then used Waste Fabric from cross stitching and removed some of the strands and viola, I have a screen! Turned out really neat looking. I pop dotted just the handle part as the screen part is too thin to put the dots on it. Almost makes you want to get sick so you will get the card in the mail someday!

This chocolate card has been in the making for over a year! I saw it on someone's blog and loved it and then never made it. Even borrowed my neighbor's Traffic embossing folder and it all just sat there. Finally, the card! If you cut out the little squares that the Traffic embossing folder makes and then you pop dot them, cover half the image with real aluminum foil and voila, you have a candy bar! So cute!
After making this card, it sat on my desk for another few weeks until I had the time to search for just the right saying - sometimes that can take as long as it takes to make the card! Hope you enjoy!

This card was a fast card to make - just cut the ATV image out using the cartridge Dude with the Cricut (has three layers). Then I just pop dotted it onto a rough/pebble looking piece of wall paper! Years ago I got a wallpaper book from a paint store and am still using pages out of the book! It really gave this card a neat look and feel. To the left is the inside of the card. Once again, I love to play with words and so I came up with At The Very for ATV - get it - LOL! David liked the card and he had a great birthday!
Whenever I give a card that is not mailed, I always have to decorate the envelope. I took a model car and inked up one of the wheels and ran it across the envelope for tire tracks because my theme of the card was the ATV. Cleaned off the tire and put the model back and no one is wiser for me doing it - shhhhh!

Ever make a card and like it so much that you make more in different colors? Well that is what happened to this one and now I can't decide which one I like the best - can you? The mason jar was cut out with a Nestabilities die and then I cut the inside out of it. Put a piece of vellum as the 'glass' and then put a piece of blue behind that for the 'water'. For the flowers just used a punch and then pop dotted them all . Used a piece of brown string for the top of the jar so that I could hang the little note. I think they turned out so cute!
