I'm back ...


Sorry I have been M.I.A. but it's been a busy, busy time ... home, work, life!

Finally got into the craft room tonight and here is what I managed ...

I got the svg file from myscrapchick.com and once I cut it on my Explore, I then inked it up with Chocolate ink.  I used C1542 Perfect Fit-Dad and C1571 You're the Best for the sentiments.

Have a great day and I'll try to get back in the crafting groove asap!

Grumpy Cat

Havin' some fun playing with the Cricut Explore and finding some fun svg files on the 'net to play with in Design Space ... here is one that I couldn't resist that came from here ... it will be a good scrapbook page element for my own grumpy cat some days wanna be!  LOL!

Have a 'grumpy' day ;)

Ivy Lane Tab Card

Are you tired of seeing Ivy Lane yet?!  I love this paper!  Anyway, this was a birthday card for my M-I-L and I created it in Design Space - the two tabs on either end of the card are tied together with a ribbon which was white so I coloured it with a copic marker to make it not white anymore and holds the card closed.  The butterflies were cut with Artiste (I think!) and then I used liquid pearls.  I also distressed them using Cocoa ink.

Have a marvelous day!
