Valentine's Day Cards

This is my very first blog post.  I have a lot to learn about what I should or should not do!  If you have constructive criticism or just plain nice things to say, feel free to post a message!

I have been attempting to use different Cricut carts as often as possible as my pile of them has grown to a very large number.  My goal is to use, not just collect!   So, in light of that I decided to make Sesame Street Cards for Valentines Day.  This first one was for my grandson.
And this one was for my grand daughter:
This one was for my daughter:
and this one was for my husband:
He laughed and said he had never received a Sesame Street card before!  He said he really liked it and would never had thought of using Sesame Street in such a way.  Oh, don't despair, the inside of the card says, "Be my Valentine!"  He is not a grouch at all!  
I used mostly Bazzill for the card stock and K & Co (love their paper!)  designer paper  except for Oscar.  He needed a more "rough" looking paper, so I chose 7Gypsies.  They have such great vintage looking papers!


  1. You have just made "Sesame Street" Carts a must have in my book. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work.

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Oscar card!! Beautifully layered. I LOVE all the different textures and embellishments. Well done! I would have NEVER thought of using Sesame Street Characters in such a way.

  3. You really do some beautiful work! Keep the projects coming.
