Cricut Cardz Challenge #53

Hello Friends,
This week over at Cricut Cardz Challenge the DT was asked to  Make a set (2 or more) of 3x3 Christmas gift cards, or a set (2 or more) of Christmas gift tags, using any cartridges or colors you’d like.

I made my first tag using Jolly Holidays. I used Ranger Watermark Resist and a darling sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Winter Wishes. A little Tim Holtz distress ink, stickles for his buttons, brads from Michaels, and some ribbon from Michaels as well.  I ended up stitching around the whole tag.

For the second tag I used A Childs Year along with Ranger Watermark Resist. A sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Winter Wishes, A studio G snowflake stamp embossed with Kaledoscope embossing powder and some more Tim Holtz distressing ink.

These are the first tags I have ever done. I can't wait to make some more. Be sure to get your entries in at CCC and have a wonderful day everyone. Also I should have that BOW video up this week!

Have a Great Day,

A cool bloggy award From Molly!

Molly at Army Wife Learns the Cricut sent me this really cool award last week. Im just a tad bit late on getting this posted :) Molly leaves me the nicest comments, Im glad to have found someone who is just as passionate about the Imagine as I am. Thank You Molly for this awesome award.

By accepting this award I must complete the following tasks:

1). Thank and link back to the person who awarded me

2). Share 8 things about myself

3). Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that I have recently discovered

4). Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards

Wow Eight things about myself...this should be interesting lol...

1. I hate spiders...really hate them. And they hate me too.
2. Photography is my first passion, papercrafting is my second.
3. I hate jewelry. I dont wear any at all. I like it and think its pretty, Just not for me. Sucks for the hubby when it comes time for gifts.
4. Major Tomboy here, see #3 comment :) I think I own one dress. My favorite outfit is jeans and a tshirt. For fancy occasions I pull out the one dress. I need to work on being more feminine.
5. Im a country girl. See comment 3 and all ties in. I have lived in the city before. But miles away from the city really is nice.
6. Even tho Im a Tomboy, I cry everytime I watch a Disney Movie...And the Notebook...I think I cried for a week strait. And I cry still everytime I watch it.
7. I was in the FFA in Highschool and raised Sheep and Horses. I would love for my children to have that experience. My daughter is currently taking riding lessons.
