Welcome! I'm a mother of two wonderful young men and wife to the best husband in the world. We live on a little farm and enjoy country livin at it's best (hence, my Blog name-LOL)! I enjoy my animals, reading, scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting and anything else I can get my hands on! Thanks for stopping by and sending me some love!!
Here's my very first Cricut Quickie! I had to throw together a card for a friend of my son's birthday half an hour before he was walking out the door. Don't you just love how they give you a heads up!?! So when it was done I had the idea of doing a "Cricut Quickie" each week. No thinkin ahead....you just have to walk up to the cricut machine and decide! It was actually fun. So I started out with Black cardstock from DCWV for the base and red for the background. Then I quickly flipped through my cricut manuals and decided on the Just 4 You image from graphically speaking. I cut the "Just" box out of black glitter paper from DCWV glitter pack at 4", then the 4, but it was TOO big so I cut it again at 2 1/2" and it was perfect. Then I noticed Potpourri Basket sitting there open to the stars on the all star page so I decided to add some of those. I ran my red cardstock through my new Sizzix Texture Boutique with the scrolls plate and cute the edge with a notebook punch. I think it's Martha Stewart but I'll have to double check that. Then adhered everything together and used the inkadinkadoo stamp Happy Birthday on the inside and embossed it in white. Easy Peasy! I had no idea when Dylan was showing up to pick up Dennis so it was a bit stressful but fun too. The best part was later that evening when the kids stopped by and Dylan thanked me for "making" his card. He thought that was pretty cool.
