Happy Thursday!

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday evening and the beginning of my weekend! woo hoo!!! So glad to have the next 4 days off! Hopefully I can get some serious crafting done. I came home this afternoon, (after a stop off at Michael's after work! hehe) to make this card for the "Relax" challenge at Cricute 360 and the "Sew Much Fun" challenge at My Craft Spot. Well, by the time I got the card done and came home from a dinner date with DH (who's going to turn down reservations??)the challenge at Cricut 360 was closed. Oh well, that's ok. I used The Recollection cardstock and DCWV pattern paper from the Crafty stack. This paper reminds me of my craft desk because I have a big green cutting mat that looks just like the paper! And of course, the little Expression cut from the Cricut Everyday cartridge matches my E too. Love that cartridge, but some of the items should be cut larger than 3 inches to really see the detail. The buttons, floss, and brads are from my stash and of course I had to add some Stickles! The sentiment stamp is from the Paper Princess set from My Creative Time. VERY cute set too! I used my Stampin' Up paper punch and ink and the doodling is with a Zig marker. Overall I like my card and I hope you do too. Well, thanks for stopping by and have a great night!


  1. I absolutely adore this cartridge! It is one of my all time faves! I agree...who needs sleep when you can be crafting:)

  2. This is just absolutely adorable, Laurie and I LOVE the sentiment!! Ha! I agree! And don't feel bad about the challenge...last week I posted a card specifically for one challenge and went to link it up, only to find out they had already chosen a winner! And the sad thing is, I made the card a couple of days early and sat on it! I hope you have a wonderful four-day weekend :D

  7. Great card Laurie~ Ha...I did the same thing with Cricut 360. Although I actually posted it Wedn at 5pm and it never linked I guess. I need to pay better attention to that.
