My Snoopie girl!

This has been a very sad couple of weeks here as my 11 year old beagle lost her fight to cancer on Monday, May 23rd.  She was such a sweetie, and if you had met her, you would have fallen in love with her.  This is dedicated to one of my best friends!! Snoopie Lovey  April 17, 2000 - May 23, 2011.

Cricut Cardz Challenge #75

This week's challenge is to make a masculine birthday card using something with wheels using any cartridge or colors.  I used Every Day Paper Dolls cartridge. I cut the race car (page 56) at 1 1/2 inches. I cut the road border (page 77) using my Gypsy (I am proud of myself for doing so, since I find myself "Gypsy challenged!"). I used DCWV Latte stack, Recollections cardstock and Three Birds stamp. Thanks for visiting me! :)

Blog Award

I am so tickled and honored that I was awarded my first blog award by Beejay at sleepcatcrafts.com.  Thanks so much, Beejay! :) Please check out her blog when you get a chance. She makes some amazing cards!! I have been asked to name five Cricut related things about myself.  So here they are....
1. I own a Cricut Expression only.
2. It took me awhile to purchase this because of the money and not sure if I really wanted one at first. I don't know what I would do without it now! I love it!
3. I would LOVE to have an Imagine next.
4. I am still Gypsy "challenged."
5. I want almost all of the Cricut cartridges out there. :)  Thanks for visiting me! :)
