I usually never win at blog contests, but I was very lucky recently! I received some blog candy from Annie's Paper Boutique last week. I am so very excited and can't wait to use it! I won one color and she even threw in a bonus! Both colors will come in very handy with the holiday seasons coming up! Thanks so very much!
I made this card to join in Emma's card challenge. I used smiley cards cartridge for the base and 3 birds for the witch. The other little embellishments are either punches or stickers. The sentiment "Boo" is from Emma's stamps and the little broom is from scrappy moms stamps.

I made this card and altered this water bottle for a coworker's baby shower. Which is funny because I was so late getting ready for the shower that I actually got there too late and missed the whole thing!
But anyway, I can't remember all the cartridges I used but I know I used life's a party and Baby Boutique. I used printable vinyl from expressionsvinyl.com which is only around $2 a sheet and it's water resistant! It worked great! I actually ordered some more the next day I like it so much.
One of the stamp sets I used was from crafty sprouts, I forgot to stamp the back of the card before I put pop dots on my images, so the bar code didn't come out just right on the back. Oh well.
Two stamp sets were from Unity stamps. One called Dutch mustard Soup (the tiny tag and sentiment) and another called happy everything. I don't think you can see it that well, but there is a guitar (from the built in cartridge on the E2) sticking out of the baby carriage.
All in all, I was happy with how things turned out.
I received some awesome blog candy a couple of days ago. I'm so psyched! I love it! Close to my heart stamps is one of my FAVORITE stamp companies! I'm so excited and can't wait to use everything especially the stamp set! How cute! Thank you so very much amo mi cricut! It even came with a handmade card!

My E2 came Monday! I am having some issues with it cutting and the mat hanging up in the back of the machine. I am going to try it a couple more times before I give up and send it back :(
But that didn't stop me! I was not going to make this card, I was supposed to be making a card for a coworker's upcoming baby shower ( I got so frustrated trying to get my E2 to cut that I took a break from fooling with it), but I came across this scrap paper (the one with the trees) and the owl embellishment ($1 michael's kind) and I decided to put this little card together.
This is one of the things I like about making these 3 in cards, everything was from scraps! I actually did not use any cricut cuts for this one, the only dies I used was from Emma's my creative time .
I think it came out cute. I am going to send it to my best friend who I learned has just had her house burglarized.
