Little Bee Nugget

I love finding little nuggets on carts.  Especially those I have forgotten about, or those I think I may not use again.  This is one of those finds!  These cute little guys are from Sesame Street Seasons.
 I like to do the inside of cards as well.  I used to leave them blank, but then I thought it was nicer to put something on the inside.  Store bought cards can stay boring.  I want to spice mine up a bit!  Besides, it uses up items and scraps.  We all have too many of those!
Have a lovely day!

Tardis Birthday Card - It's Bigger on the Inside!

My sister-in-law is a great Dr. Who fan.  These are her two favorite doctors.  Fun and fast card! I learned by combining print & cut  and cut out pieces it works really well.   She loved it!  That made me happy! 

Have an awesome day!

Drinker Bell

Here is a shirt and card I made for my daughter.  She loves wine.  (She's not a wino though!  lol!) The inside reads:  "I Tink you should have a Happy Birthday!"   It was an idea that came from Facebook:  Let's Learn Cricut Explore by Heidi Varden.  The designer paper and sentiment are from Kaiser Craft "Violet Crush".  I used a Recollections card base and envelope.  These are so easy, I use them a lot! 

My first Drinker Bell was a bust.  The first OOPS was I put in "glitter vinyl" NOT "glitter iron on vinyl"!  What a nightmare it was to weed.  Then, after taking the time to weed and put everything together, line it up, center it, wash it, blah, blah blah, I managed at the last moment to flip the bottle onto the body of Tink and iron it together!  Oi!  All of the work, not to mention having to buy another shirt, was toast!  PLUS I didn't have any more HTV!  I went mooching and found one piece I could get.  Phew, saved by the bell!  This was for her birthday and she needed to receive it today!

I am so loving the Design Space and Explore.  I can't wait until they make it usable off-line as well!
