Birthday card

Happy hump day
Well my Granddaughter Courtney turns 8 on Saturday and she really likes the Monster High Dolls. I thought I would try to find something with one on it and make her a card. I found this cute pic on the Internet ...
I printed it out 2 times the first one I used spellbinders oval and cut it out then added the spellbinders scalloped oval to it... I cut the 2ND one out and pop dotted it on to the printed one for a 3D look. I inked the oval also. Used Martha Stewart drippy goo boarder punch , EEEK and spider web corner punches , and some so bling ribbon...On the inside it will read Hope you have a Fangtastic 8Th Birthday.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Crayon wreath

Good Tuesday morn all,
Well had a good weekend and now the kids are back to school.
I made this crayon on wreath for granddaughter Courtney's teacher she is in 2nd grade this year.
I seen these last year and been wanting to make one a little slow I
These are real simple to make and there are a few different was to make them.
Supplies used: 2 wood cross stitch rings 12 in & 8 in
1 box 64 crayons and I added about 10 more to make it fuller..
You can use any kind I choose Crayola and made sure that all the labels were facing the same way. Hot glue them
1 roll of ribbon ( optional ) I weaved around the wreath one way then back around the other way so it was doubled.
Cricut carts: locker talk and mini monograms for the cuts I also added a wooden sign and sprayed it with chalk board paint then wrote 2nd grade on it with chalk..added some ribbon with a small piece of chalk.
Roll of ribbon to make a bow and saved a piece to hang it with and glued to the back.
She gave it to her teacher and I was told she loved it ...the teacher sent me a very nice thank you note home...
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day

Happy almost Friday everyone....
I got me a Cricut Imagine ( YEAH) and it came yesterday I was dying to play with so I sat down for awhile today and made a card ....
I think it is pretty easy to use. and what I LOVE is you can make everything coordinate .
If you have been following me you know I have been having a real problem with matching up papers this was AWESOME!
I used the Cricut Imagine: Imagine more ( that comes with it)
I printed , layered and cut the kite,picture frame ,note and boarder...also printed the plain and patterned papers...LOVE IT! added some brads and string , pop dots too.
I really like how it turned out for my very 1st project with it.
