FCCB LucK Of The Irish Challenge

Hello all!

Luckily I was able to put together a project this week considering what my body has been through, but I am almost there!!!! My breathing is good and the Hives are gone, just waiting for the cold sweats to leave! I choose to go to my favorite place for inspiration and to see what challenge they had for this week-  FCCB!!! It may be late but better late than never!

I love Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog!!! For those of you who don't know, they have
  • Challenge Me Monday
  • Quick Tip Tuesday (one of my favorites!)
  • Wednesday's Winners
  • Thursday's Tutorials
  • Fantabulous Friday
  • Scrappin Saturday
  • and!!! Spotlight Sunday

The only materials I had that I could use were the 4 leaf clover ribbon and cup cake liners. I made the center flower out of these liners. I never had a stamp but I thought Good Luck would be appropriate, maybe??

Here is my project
We were asked to use at least one cricut cut which I used on the background, I couldn't tell you the name of the cartridge for I had this cut for a long time in my stash from when I borrowed a friends cartridge.
Also we had to use a Shamrock or use Green on our project...!


Have a great day!

Winner for the $25 Michael's Gift Card !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone, sorry I didn't post this earlier, I just dropped in to announce the winner, I am really sick so all your prayers would deeply be appreciated. I had a severe allergic reaction which in turn effected my breathing therefore I have been put on Predinsone, a very high dose. I am supposed to be hospitalized right now but my son needs me also for medical reasons so I have no choice but to really take it easy.

I just want to thank everyone who participated in the $25 Michael's Card Giveaway, the amount of responses surprised me and delighted me!!!!

So with out further adieu!!!

Hi Everyone!

It's Monday again, hard to believe the weekend went by so fast!


I have been working on  a Split Paper Bag Mini Album here and there and can't wait for it to be done to show you! I have been dealing with an annoying allergic reaction to medication for 4 days so there is a lot of scratching  and Benadryl is causing me to sleep a lot. Cross your fingers for me that this will go away as quick as possible, pretty pleaseeeeee.




So today instead of not writing a post I decided to show you one of the very first cards I ever made, now we all know what it is like to start out so try not to laugh...I didn't have any pattern paper so I doodled!!! I guess that is quite common now! Actually I don't know about you but it almost became second nature to me when I got bored in a class at school.. oh that seems so long ago...


I used really big flowers on all cards starting out because I had seen one in a magazine and was determined mine was going to be as nice..........not! It's the effort that counts right? lol


Here is my masterpiece, hehe


Oh! and don't mind the date, this was an older camera and I had no idea how to change the date on it, this was a little over a year ago. Don't you just love the way I understood inking at that time! hahahaha.... over all I still adore this card, there will be no other card like your first and I hope you all either saved or took a photo of yours, it is always nice to see how far along you have come.
