My Pink Stamper Design Team Call !!!!!

Those of you who follow my blog or know me know that I am a huge fan of Robyn over at My Pink Stamper. Well the time has come again for her to pick design team members!! It would be the highlight of my crafting career!! I didn't have much time due to school, but now school is over and I'm so ready for some much needed Cricut time!

The challenge is to create a card, scrapbook page or other cricut project with your favorite cricut cartridge using the colors.......Orange, Turquoise, Green and Brown!

Here is everything I got out and ready for this challenge!!

My card is A2 size in white and the first layer is turquoise.
The background pattern paper is the the DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack.
The top of the umbrella is from the same stack.

The umbrella is from the seasonal cartridge, April Showers!
It's cut at 3 1/2" with the help of my handy Gypsy!
 It's impossible to have a favorite but this one fits perfectly because of all the rain storms we've had lately.

My sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper stamp set, Friend-Tastic!
It's stamped in Memento brand ink, Rich Cocoa color.
I won this set and two others in the National Scrapbook day event. I love them so much and use them like crazy.
My little green flower brad is from Hobby Lobby by The Paper Studio.

This card is for my soulmate Jeri who is my crafting buddy, mentor and best friend!

Wish me luck!

Throwback Thursday Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!!! I have been so busy with school and weddings that I have been neglecting my blog!! I figured I'd get back into it by participating in Emma's Throwback Thursday!

I made this card for my boyfriend's mother who absolutely loves dragonflies!
This is from the live simply cartridge, which isn't that old but is one of the older Cricut Lite Cartridges.
The dragonfly is cut at 3"
I embossed his body with the Swiss Dots folder.
The sentiment is from My Pink Stampers Birthday Crazy set.
Background paper is from DCWV Summer Dream Stack.
I used stickles in the circles on his wings.
Hope you like it!!
