From The Desk Of...

Happy Thursday everyone!  It's my day to create a project for Miss Kate Cuttables blog.  I am SO excited to share what I have created for today!

I really like to make a personalized card set for the kids teachers as a little back to school gift.  I was inspired many moons ago by THIS card made by the talented Ruthie.  There is also a You Tube video for how to do the embossing and the sentiment.  You can find that HERE.  I love the School Time set from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I think it's SO cute, and just perfect for this card.  I think I'm going to make a box using the cute eraser.  You can find this set HERE.

 Be sure to visit Miss Kate Cuttables blog every day!  She has amazing daily freebies and there is always a wonderful creation to inspire you!

Are You Ready for Some Football?

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am guest designing today for Die Cuttin Divas.  The challenge this week is Lions, Tigers and Bears.  I decided to pull out my Gypsy girl and create a project with my Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  Here it is:

My son is a big Miami Dolphins fan.  We do a family football pool, so I decided to make this card for him.  The stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas "All Star Sports".  You can buy your own HERE

Be sure to come play with us at Die Cuttin Divas, you can make a project using a lion, a tiger or a bear.  I can't wait to see what you create!
