ok I have a Cricut and I have vinyl, now I just need to figure out what I want to do with them. I found some terrific ideas at plus they are having a contest. You (meaning I ) can enter to win a 120$, 60$, or a 30$ gift certificate for vinyl lettering at Vinyl Craft Lettering! That would be sweet! But I really should take the plunge and make something myself instead of rambling here....

Happy Sunday.
Today's entry is a Caardvarks challenge to create a monochromatic card.
The card base is SU Bashful Blue. The rest of the card was made using Core'dinations Whitewash. Core'dinations cardstock is great fun to play with because you can sand it, distress it, tear it, emboss it and so much more to reveal the hidden core color.
I tore the background paper then ran it through my big shot using a swiss dots folder. Then sanded it. The butterflies were made using Cuttlebugs cut and emboss Butterflies die, MS punch and the SU embosslits, Beautiful Wings. Then more sanding.

I used dimensionals on all the butterflies, except the baby.I gave each of the a pearl or two. Added some rick rack from Wally's on the top and bottom of the card. Then the final touch was a couple of squirts of Champagne mist from SU.
Now cross your fingers for me, cuz I'd love to win this challenge. The winner will receive a 3 month guest designer spot on the design team, and receive a generous variety of Core'dinations cardstock to work with. Oh ya...pick me paleeze
Thanks for looking and enjoy your day.

Georgia, oh sweet Georgia on my mind

My daughter and her boyfriend took a long weekend in Savannah Georgia and had an absolutely wonderful time. This was their first time to get away from their hectic college life. And what a fabulous idea to go to a B & romantic.
I decided that they definitely needed something special to remind them of their trip. Hence.. The Book.

She hasn't seen The Book yet so I hope you have enjoyed the peek.
