Feelin' Lucky?

Top o' the morning and welcome to another Krafty Girls challenge! Challenge #2 is Feelin' Lucky? - create a card, scrapbook layout, 3D object, or home decor project with a St. Partick's Day theme.  
Here's my card:
I've been wanting to use this cute girl for quite some time already! She's from the Rock Princess cartridge. The shamrocks are from Paper Doll Dress Up.  
I even added a little belt made out of twine. Her shoes are made out of stickles.
The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps The Charmed Life.
I pop-dotted her for some dimension.
The scalloped border is actually a border from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I duplicated it and welded it with a rectangle in the center.
I almost forgot, her face is from the Laughy Taffy face assortment from Peachy Keen... I bought it a LONG time ago because I loved it, but had yet to used it lol

It's been a while...

Hello! I can't believe it's been over a week since I last posted! The worst thing happened! My gypsy baby froze/stopped working :( I've been trying to troubleshoot with PC so we'll see how that goes [yesterday there was a problem with Cricut Sync] If needed they'll have to replace it :( AND to top it off, we are moving so my carts are stored away.
Anywhoo.... I had enough time today to whip up a card with what I had :)
For the hearts, I used the Stitched Heart Die from My Creative Time's 100% Sweetness and stamped it with the coordinating stamp. I added zots to add dimension.  I sprayed Perfect Pearls Mists to add some....shine to it, but I wasn't completely happy with the outcome.
Challenges I'm entering this for:
Cardz TV challenge - Anything goes
DL.ART - Anything goes
Cherished Treasures - Linky Party
Made Especially For You - create a card featuring three papers
Craft Junkie Too - TGIF Linky Party
Hope you all have a great weekend! Stay tuned next week for the winner of the giveaway and some exciting news!
Thanks for looking!!

Krafty Girls Challenge #1

It's FINALLY here!! Krafty Girls is up and running! You should have arrived from Chris' blog, If not, make sure you start from the beginning over at Krafty Girls -you dont want to miss a thing! :)  Challenge # 1 is to create a card, scrapbook layout, 3D object, or home decor project that represents where you're from/live.

I live in southern California, and even better -within 20 minutes from the beach!
"I" is from All Mixed Up cartridge, the heart is from Baby Steps, and "Cali" is also from Baby Steps [just welded]. The sentiment is from My Creative Time's This & That set.
 The palm tree is from Summer Vacation and the gal is from Pack Your Bags. Her face is from Peachy Keen's Christmas Character Face assortment.
The ferris wheel is also from Summer Vacation.  The reason I added a ferris wheel is because I ♥ ferris wheels and the closest beach to us is Newport Beach/Balboa Beach and they have a ferris wheel [like other beaches like the Pike in Long Beach, Santa Cruz boardwalk, and the most known the Santa Monica pier] =)
and my favorite cricut sun is from Doodlecharms -its face is from Pks' Happy Lashes assortment.

Birthday Sundaes Challenge # 43

It's time for another challenge over at Birthday Sundaes. Challenge # 43 is to create a birthday card using the following picture as inspiration - it must include a HEART and a birthday sentiment on your card front!  
Here's my take on it. 
The cupcake in the center is from Sweet Treats and the other two are from Once Upon a Princess. 
 The adorable faces are from Peachy Keen's Christmas Character Face assortment. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's Sweetest Cupcakes set. 
I used distress inks to ink around the edges of the cupcakes and liquid pearls -I can never get them right :(. Also, I used zots to make the cupcakes pop up.

Thanks for looking!

Peachy Keen Challenge #3 - TP Roll

Hello! The challenge at PKS is to create ANY project of your choice using an empty toilet paper roll. Here's mine [warning: tons of pics!] 
I created a mini toilet paper roll book
Below: here it is from the side.
I started by flattening out three toilet paper rolls.
 Then I inked around the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink but that was wayyy too light, so I went over it with Worn Lipstick.
 Next I adhered the paper to the rolls.
 Then hole punched them with my crop-a-dile.

 and added eyelets for a better look. I wasnt going to add stitching....
but I did lol much better
Now, the decorating! Here is the front. The hearts are from Doodlecharms. I cant remember where the hat/crown are from :( I think I just searched for them on my gypsy until I saw one that I liked. The sentiment is from My Creative Time's You Had Me at Chocolate.  The stamp on the heart on the left is from Peachy Keen's The Cornies and the one on the right from the Princess Face Assortment.
 "to my" is from the Alphalicious cartridge. The beautiful journaling stamp is from My Creative Time's My Journaling. The stamp on this heart is also from Pks the Princess Face Assortment.
 The lightning bolt is from Indie Art and the sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamp set Love Notes. This adorable face is from Pks The Cornies .
 Cupid is from Sweethearts cartridge. The sentiment is from MCT's You Had Me at Chocolate.
 The heels are from Forever Young and the sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamp set Love Notes. Both faces are from Pks Happy New Year assortment.
 This little skunk/squirrel ahahaha is from Create a Critter. The sentiment also from Scrappy Moms Stamp set Love Notes. His lovely face is from the Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Face assortment.
 The inside of the toilet paper rolls have tags!! :) I stamped this one, again, with MCT's HMy Journaling.
 Here's a mini snap shot of the end product. I added small photos of my hubby and I that we took at the mall.

Thank you so much for looking and join in on the fun here!
