Radiology Tech Graduation Shaker Card

It was my pleasure when I was asked to make a card for this young lady. I have known her since she was just a wee one. Time surely flies!!!

I designed this card from scratch in my Silhouette Design Studio software. 
The inside sentiment is from the Silhouette Design Store.  I love how you can change the colors at will.

Thanks for stopping by.

Kayaking Anyone?

This was a card request from my card group, Creative Card Angels.  The person requested cards for her father who is dealing with that ugly old cancer. He loves the outdoors, kayaking and exercising. She said he loves receiving cards, so here's is my contribution.


As always, thanks for stopping by.

Graduation Cards

Yes, it's that time of year again.  These cards are for the son's of two of my friends.  I did each card in their school colors.  The design came from the Silhouette Store but I changed it up by adding a tie to the design and little extras here and there. I added their names on the inside to give it a personal touch. the sentiment is also from the Silhouette Store.

This one is for a young man I've watched grow up from the time he was 8 years old. He's a great kid. It's hard to believe that he is graduating from high school already.
 This one is for the son of my friend that I met on the Cricut Cruise back in 2012. We, along with 2 others, have communicated every day since the cruise.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. If your mother is still living, cherish her.  I miss mine everyday!!

I made this card for my dear Mother-in-Law. She's the best!
At the last minute, I needed a small box to hold one of her gifts so I went to the Silhouette Design Store and found this cute little box.  It was just perfect!
Box Side View
The flap on the back is really supposed to be under the front flap but I didn't need it so I added it to the back of the box. I thought it was kind of cute this way.

The cardstock is Garden Party by Craft Smith for both the card and box.

I hope you all have an awesome day!!

Mother's Day Cards 2016

These designs are all from the Silhouette design store. I used mostly Shimmer Cardstock on all except the floral one. I apologize for the dark pictures but I've been a bit under weather and took these really quick.
This is a sample of the inside of the cards. I matched the color on each card with the base colors. This one is Pink.

 This card is Bronze Shimmer Cardstock.

I mixed it up a little and made one with a Floral Print.

Superman Birthday Card

Card Request - Creative Card Angels

This card for the 6th birthday celebration of Lucas.

Lucas has an incurable form of cancer. His parents requested cards for his birthday through their local news media and Facebook.  My friend, Felisa, saw it and suggested that the "Angels" participate in this event.

You can read Lucas' story and follow his journey here:

He loves Super Heroes so this is what I came up with:

 Back: I made a little Cape to go on the back of the card.  Just playing around with it.
 Side view: I did not glue down the bottom of the Cape because I wanted it to appear to flying in the wind.

Thanks for stopping by and if you have time, please drop this little guy a card. It can be handmade or store bought. It's the thought that counts!

His address is;

 Lucas Bear Heroes

40 E. Chicago Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611
