About Me

I received a Cricut for Valentine's day 2008. I had done scrapbooking when my daughter was younger, but hadn't done any paper crafting since then. I really got into it again when I got my Cricut!! I discovered card making and have been hooked ever since!! I enjoy almost all crafts and have done tole painting, crocheting, cross stitch and other crafty things. I have a daughter who is a freshman in college and two furbabies. I adore animals of all kinds and I love the outdoors and gardening.

Birthday Turtle

I had been seeing so many wonderful shape cards on the Cricut Message Board that I wanted to do one too! I used the turtle cut from the Walk in My Garden cart and welded two shadow cuts in Design Studio. Her hat is from the Celebrations cart. She has rain dots for "toes" and the trim on the bottom of her shell is a Martha Stewart punch. Belated birthday day tag is computer generated and I used Nestabilites to cut it out. Party hat is Cuttle Bugged with swiss dots and then sanded. I tied a ribbon underneath her chin and added a flower. Rhinestones and pom-pom added for some bling. Lots of doodling and inking! I made this card for another wonderful Sister-In-Law!!


  1. Ahhh he is adorable, I love him too and used him to make a shaped photo album of my grandsons photo's.

    I have really enjoyed looking at your blog
