Baby Shower card

i made this cute card for Jhana's baby shower ~ i really hope she loves it! tfl.

edited to add: my sisters and friend totally loved the card. I used the new arrival cart for the image and the sentiment. i used my CB to emboss the pink area, used a little bit of green chalk ink around the lighter color paper on the pod and a little bit of fruit punch Stickles on the heart (at top). I threw on a few pieces of bling to the top and bottom of the pea pod. i made the tiniest bow for her head and used a sheer and pink ribbon across the bottom of the card. the card base i purchased in a set of 12 - not quite sure of the brand - but its white with light dots of pink, blue, yellow and green - and then i added a dab of Stickles over it.
(sorry if the pic is not the best - i forgot to get the pic in the house before i brought it out to my sis)

Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz

There's a new item in my craft room and im not afraid to use it!!!
Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz - got this two pack @ Joann's (about $8) and i them! The colors Sparkle and Frost, are quick dry mists that you can use on paper, ribbons and other craft mediums - they give a beautiful shimmery coverage. Try them - you will love them!

I recently noticed that i have recieved my first Bug Head on the Cricut message board -

Scallop circle birthday card

I made this scallop cirlce birthday card for Kathy's upcoming birthday. I started by welding two 5 inch scallops from the Accent Essentials cart. I made a four inch circle in yellow and a smaller white circle. On the white cirlce i used a cute dollar store stamp - stamped with red chalk ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I used pop dots on the white circle. I filled in the scallop edges and cupcake with Copic Markers - love these - so smooth, compared to my Marvy and Tombo markers.
 I made a small pink bow and used the cheater method with the same pink ribbon across the yellow circle. I used a tiny bit of yellow Stickles on the "frosting" and Ranger Glossy Accents on the cherry! The piece de resistance is a new product I have found - Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. Love this stuff! Wonder how it compares to the Glimmer Mist's??? Hope you enoy it!
