Happy Birthday Matey!!

Good morning my friends.  I wanted to share this card that I made for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge.  

We were to follow a sketch and have at least 3 cricut cuts.  I used my Imagine and the Buccaneer cart to print and cut the background paper, the ship and the cute pirate.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts- Days to Celebrate.  I have a nephew who has a birthday coming up, so I will give this to him!

El Cucuy (BoogieMan) Blog Hop

Hello my Crafty Friends and welcome to another fun Blog Hop!!   You should have just arrived from the super sweet Angie.  If you have just arrived and would like to start from the beginning, then head on over to Celeste.
Ok so now onto my projects...

The first one is this cute card.  The cute lit' image is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  I don't know about you, but wouldn't he be a great Cucuy?? lol.  The sentiment is by Crafty Sprouts-Totally Witchin stamp set.  Isn't it just perfect for this blog hop!! I was so excited when I saw that Erika's stamps included this one!!

Next, I decided to go crazy with Vinyl!! I decided to make some cutouts for my kitchen cupboards...

Like I said, I went a little crazy with the vinyl!!  My boys loved it!  They were excited to see them everywhere in the kitchen.

I used Happy Hauntings and Mini Monsters Cricut carts to cut these out.  Next, I added some red eyes with some acrylic paint.  I have to say, working with vinyl is pretty easy!! Looking forward to Thanksgiving!!! lol

Ok, so if you are looking for some blog candy... you got it!!!

Hey Everyone,
Here is a super quick card I put together using my Imagine.  I didn't use the Craft Room this time, just made everything with the machine and it went a lot faster!!!  I also thought I'd make something other than Halloween/Fall too.....

All the images, including the background paper was printed & cut using Cricut Imagine Enjoy the Seasons cart.

This super cute stamp is from Crafty Sprouts- Have a Cool Yule set.

A Card with my Imagine

**For the Halloween Treat Boxes Blog Hop, Click here**

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to share a card that I made using my Imagine.  I used the Cricut Craft Room for this as well.  I have to be honest, it did take me a little longer than I wanted to make the card.  Not sure if it was because of the Craft Room or the Imagine.  I don't use these very often, so when I do it is a little frustrating.  I have to say, I love the way my card turned out, but I guess I just need to use them more to get faster at it.

Both the background patterned papers and the images were cut using the imagine.
I love the bright colors!!

Here is a side view, so you can see the layers.

Have a great week everyone!!
