Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #11
Beautiful Flowers for May: Create a project using at least 3 flowers on your project.
I liked this card but something seemed to be missing and then I came across... Jitterbuggin' Challenge, a weekly sketch challenge. So I decided to add to this card!  Here's what I came up with!  It kinda finished it off.

Blog Candy!!!

Make it Crafty is giving us a chance to win copics, prima flowers, stamps, lace, rub ons, stickers and much more!!! Entries must be in by midnight 31st May (Australian EST) She has some of the most ingenious crafts!!! Once of My favorites is this one. Her turtle pop up card. All I can say is WOW! The colors are just perfect. I almost can't believe that she actually made this. You can find the link HERE.

Fingers crossed here in Ohio, lol!

My Mom's day present came!

I'm not one to run out to get the newest thing on the market. Usually, I wait and with this Gypsy, I'm glad I did. Reading the message boards and such, there seemed to be bugs with it and such. But because I waited, bugs have been addressed,  there is a wealth of site with great info and You Tube rocks on how-to videos!!!

I am so excited!!! I finally got my Gypsy! The start up was very easy. I had no problems which I am very grateful for!  A great site to check out is Gypsy Tech at the Provocraft message boards.  They have one section "Step by step instructions", it was like my own person tutor.  Now, I'm just waiting for Mr Postman to deliver my Gypsy A to Z dvd! One thing that kinda suprise me when I took it out of the box, was how thin and lightweight it is!  It always looked a little chuncky to me in pictures and on HSN. 
Anyway, Me and Gypsy Rose (my pet name for her, lol) are fast becoming great friends!

Fantabulous Cricut #10

Challenge #10
Bags, Boxes Bonanza include the color Black: Create a 3-D project using the color black anywhere on your project....

 I don't have a lot of cartridges to makes boxes and such, and what I did have, wasn't what I wanted so I decided another route, lol.  Here are the treat bags that I made for my son, Sam's B-Day party.  (It's also my first Gypsy project!!!)
Platin, Everyday Paperdolls, Zooballoo, Gypsy Font

 Black 4x4 cardstock folded in half over cellophane bag and stapled.  Football, grass and letters all sized with the Gypsy to fit on the black.  I didn't pay attention to the sizes but luckily, I saved the file on the Gypsy so I can make more for later birthdays, just change the football and grass to something else.
I also want to thank Angi @ Cokie Pop Paper!  I won the Robotz cart during The Fantabulous Cricut Crawl!

WOW, Michaels Coupons

Cricut Crawl con't!

Project with multiple techniques:

Angi gave detailed instructions on how to make an accordion flower.  For this LO, I did them little different, but they were still folded accordian style. -Brenda challenged us to create a journal box with our Cricut.  I used my cut outs a jornal boxes. Everyone at the crop thought that was a "sweet" idea, lol. -Candace wanted some embossing on a Cricut cut. I used the flower folder and swirl folder. Here is a closer picture... - Lori wanted us to use a die cut negative.  I used the insde of a cut from a frame, sliced off the edge and used it as part of the border piece. -Nana challenged us to use a Gypsy. I don’t have Gypsy, it's on route (my mother's day present).  However, Nana she said that if we didn’t have a Gypsy we could incorporate a swirl into our project.  I chose to use the swirl heart from Hannah Montana Cartridge.
-Penny wanted us to use a shadow.  I did that with the cupcake and heart from the Stamping Solutions cart.

Sad to say but fast food was dinner today.  Hubby had to go to his son's B-ball game tonight.  Don't worry though, I had Arby's junior (plain), one potato cake and a diet pepsi... 9 pts :)

Negative For You

4. LORI:

Project for Cricut Crawl... using negative space.  This card is made with negative space, the blue is actually cardstock glued to the back.  My mom looooves when I use neg. space, because she gets to keep the words or images that I don't need, lol.
