Birthday Bear

This is what I did for my little girl's 6th Birthday.  She wanted white bears as the theme, I thought it would be so dull so I added pink and purple ... the little boys thought the colors were "boring".  Bears were from Create a Critter cartridge and fonts are from Don Juan.  BTW, the middle box is a home made pinata (an old cereal box covered with crepe paper), I'm happy this one dropped all the candies when the strings were pulled.  My first attempt was a disaster, my husband had to rip open the box for the goodies to come out ... I secured it too much.  
In a little over a month my oldest son wants a star wars birthday. How on earth can I make a clone trooper from Cricut?  Wish me luck =D.

Lombardi Ranch

This is not craft related but I just wanted to share ... sort of an inspiration for crafting.  We visited Lombardi Ranch, a small family owned farm that holds a Pumpkin Festival every fall season.  Here are some shots I took (I only had a 50mm lens with me so my shots were very limited).

Christmas Stockings

I'm still trying to get into the Christmas mood and created this card.  For the stockings, I used PTI's stockings die and dots background stamp then added glossy accent on the dots.  The white paper on the stockings is a  Doodlebug crushed velvet paper.  The base card, kraft card and sentiment stamp are also PTI.  Excuse my picture too, I'm trying to learn to use a dslr camera but I'm having trouble focusing ... Weng (my expert friend) help! =D.

Christmas Wreaths

Sorry for the long absence, we went out of town for 2 consecutive weekends so there was no time to craft.  Anyhow,  I finally had a chance to break-in my new set of stamps, PTI's Wreath for All Seasons.  Hopefully, this will set my mood for the holidays so I won't have to cram this year ... hopefully =D
