After reading Amy's post from Pickled Paper Designs, I was inspired to make a card for my friend whom I've known for years.
This week has taught me a lot about friendship.  It's nice to have friends who are there for you when it gets bad, but it's especially important for you to always have your friends back when things get rough.  I made this card for a special friend of mine, who's always been there for me when ever I've needed her.  This time it's my turn and I hope this card lets her know I'm thinking of her.  I also hope this card inspires you to do or make something for that person you know is having a hard time and may need just a little something to know someone cares.

Love Aubree Card

Here's a quick card I made in between trying to get other things done. I'm getting ready for our town's Art Guild Auction and getting my two year old ready to go to a birthday party. It's her first party she's ever been too. I won't be able to take her:( because of the auction (I'm the secretary. How that happened, I'll never know.).

Here's the card I made for her to take. I had her sign the inside. My 10 yr old was appalled that I would let her scribble in it. Little does she know I let her do the same thing when she was little.


Paisley Cricut cart. Frog cut at 2 3/4

SU pink passion cut at 5 1/2 by 8 1/2

DCWV paper glitter stack

SU tempting turquoise, basic black

Hope you enjoy the card.

Simple Doodlecharms card

Here's a card I made when I received my Doodlecharms in the mail and DCWV paper.

Supplies used: Doodlecharms Cricut cart., DCWV Glitter Sweet stack paper, SU paper, My cute stamps, SU ribbon and Dew Drop Versa magic ink.

This card was quick and easy. Sometimes I like to see how simple of a card I can make with just a few supplies. This is how I entise my nay sayer friends when they say, "It's to hard to make a card"or "I just don't have the time." I've converted many with this tactic.

Not so perfect card

Last weekend I received my goodies from I was so excited. I had finally gotten the Cuttlebug and some embossing folders, a fabulously cute stamp set from "My Cute stamps" called "Circus Animals", and another Cricut cart. "From my Kitchen". If you have never been to their site, they always have some awesome deals going. I buy all my Cricut carts. from them because they are the cheapest I've found so far (I buy them when they are on sale).   I can hardly resist the "Buy $100 and get free shipping". (and I may or may not of bought just one more Cricut cart. this weekend from them.) If anyone knows where else I can get inexpensive carts. let me know. I'm always looking for a deal. I live in rural Alaska where there are no roads in or out of our town, so shopping for crafts is all on the Internet. (No Hobby Lobby here)

Anyways... after the kids went to bed, my husband and I sat down to watch a movie. I just couldn't help it, I kept getting the itch to play with my new stuff. Well I didn't want to neglect my husband, so I brought my things out to the living room. I didn't want to damage the coffee table, so I brought out a Rubbermaid container. "What?!!"you say, "Stamping on a Rubbermaid container?! NO!!". Well I did :(.  The elephant came out perfect, but the Happy Birthday, not so perfect. I knew better then to stamp on a weak surface and I did it anyway. I still love my little elephant card though and wanted to share it with you. Isn't he the cutest thing. I could definitely get addicted to these stamps.
