Sorry I've been so absent!

There's a lot going on right now. First, I went on vacation to attend my nephew's wedding for the past week. When I got back to work, I got the sad news that some of our workers have gone on strike. This has thrown a wrench into things, so I'm headed out of town to help out for the next two+ weeks. So I'm really sorry I haven't been able to post, and I know there are a lot of thank you's that I owe my friends for all the wonderful birthday greetings and gifts. I'm so sorry that all of this has just come crashing down. I should be back and running maybe the second week of October hopefully. Thanks for being so understanding, and I hope to be chatting with you again soon!

Flower Frame from Cricut Pooh and Friends cartridge

This week over at Bitten By The Bug, Regina asked us to use this flower frame. I fell in love with this frame cut the first time I saw it, so this is not the first time I've used it. The PP, lace ribbon, and glitter heart are all by Melissa Frances. The flowers are Prima that I brushed with some chalk ink and then put a rhinestone by Kaiser. The pearls in the frame are Dew Drops. Now if you look really close behind the glittered heart, you'll see something that looks like lace. This is my new favorite stuff! I got a GORGEOUS new stamp set, lace edgings, by Paper Salon. I stamped it on white cardstock and then embossed it with Tim Holts distress embossing powder in antique linen. This truly looks like real lace. I can not believe the beauty of these stamps. Look at the netting! The details on these stamps are gorgeous! The stamp on the tag is from a set by Kim Hughes at Cornish Heritage Farms. Please be sure and go over to Bitten By The Bug and check out the rest of the designers creations for this challenge. They have so much amazing talent! Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!

Whoot Whoot! Let's Celebrate! Cricut Accent Essentials Cartridge

Just a fun birthday card! I used the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge for the frame and a cute stamp set by Kim Hughes with Cornish Heritage Farms for the owl, hat, and sentiment. I'm sorry, I can't remember who made the pattern paper. I'm thinking it's Kaiser, but not positive. Added some stickles and some rain dots, a little machine stitching, and that's about it.! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thanks again for stopping by! Don't forget to go check out the Cricut cartridge super sale going on over at Hallmark Scrapbook right now!
