Best for last?

You know what they say about saving the best for last? Well, I am hoping that you think so - I am finally back using my Cricut! I bought a Gypsy and it has really made things exciting again! So this is a birthday and I thought about really trying to use my stuff! I put the stickles on the name to give it a little extra weight as when the glue sets up, it makes the paper thicker (or it feels thicker)! It also draws attention to it - after working on it, I didn't want all that work to be ignored!!!! Actually it wasn't very much work at all - more like easy! The image is a Kenny K digital and I altered a flower to look like a gear on the Gypsy!! That cool background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder - yep - still use the Cuttlebug!! When I embossed it, I should have dampened the paper slightly, and since I didn't, it showed signs that it could pull apart (the paper). So again with the stickles!!! You know - I just can't live without them!! I should own stock in the company by now!! Here are the copics - BG01, YR02, YR07, W3, W5, YG23, YG63, YG67, E00, E11, R20, E31, E33, E35, E37, E29, C2. That DP on the inside is a robot kind of paper - so cute, just can't remember what it's called - sorry. The greeting on the inside is cut from a spellbinder die. I put a check in the little pocket. That little gear on the front is cut from the dp with an actual pair of scissors!! Just thought it needed a little something right there. All of the paper came from the same package. And I KNOW you can find the stickles on this one!! That's it for me. Have a whole lot of cards to make for the next eternity!!! Hugs to you all, Barb F
I give up on placing these photos!!

A Lady's Birthday

Don't even know where I got this stamp, but I love it to pieces! I used to think it was torture to color, but now I am really enjoying it!! These are my friend's fav colors and I am hoping it will cheer her alot as she is ill right now.
I did keep track of the copics - B00, B01, B02, V000, V12, V15, V17, YG23, E00, E11, E31, E33, E35, E37, E29, E18, R20. I love, love the DP and save every tiny scrap of this one! I was amazed that I still have enough left to do a card!! See if you can find the stickles!! Hugs to you all - this is number 2! Barb F

Really Cute Peeker's Card

Have I got a few cards for you today!! Have just a tiny bit more absences and then I should be close to normal. I have sure missed going to all the blogs and looking at everyone's gorgeous stuff! Really missed your nice comments and so I will be fishing for some more and hoping that doing three posts will make us even! This first one was a card for a 9yr old granddaughter. The stamp is a fairly new line from Elisabeth Bell called Peekers! I think they are all just the cutest things! Wish my writing was nicer as I just had to make it say those words! There is less in the way of sparkle than I usually do - I am not changing, just adapting to the card!! And believe it or not, I did  keep track of the copics! RV06, BG000, BG01, Y23, Y00, YG17, Y21, Y28, E00, E11, E37, Y11, C1, C3, BG05. And here it is - love the inside enough to take photos!
So here are lots of hugs for all of you!!!!, Barb F
