$15 ebay gift card for $7-limited time offer

I did not post this yesterday as I figured it would sell out, but still showing for another day. If you have an ebay account and a PayPal account you can buy a $15 ebay gift card for $7. Since I get almost all my Cricut cartridges this way I bought one!

3/22 Cricut Chirp

I am a little behind on email, I just realized that one of the cards I made at retreat was featured in the 3/22 Cricut Chirp, how cool is that? I don't post a lot there, but the card they chose was the flower from 50States (see my 3/18 post). I am guessing it was chosen because that is one of those cartridges that is kind of hard to use some times! Here is a link to the Chirp, see "Message Board Highlights" and my link is "50 States Flower Card".

Mighty Dollar

I left work early for an appointment today and just can't drive down Scottsville Rd. without stopping at Mighty Dollar! I hit the jackpot, look at all the goodies I found! Now honestly, I think I already own the pet scrapping book, but who knows where it is, LOL!

Another weekend ended

The weekends go way too fast. I did manage to cook, clean and craft, so it's not all lost. Jackie and I even walked 3 miles today, it was so hot I thought I was going to pass out! I worked on swap projects, what else. Here are 2 hanging post cards I made with supplies from Crafty Secrets. I would really like to keep them for myself, but they are for a swap.

Cards from Retreat

I really got a lot done at retreat, just haven't posted anything. Here are a few of my cards for your viewing pleasure:

1) Top O' the Morning' is a 4x5 card front. I made 50 of them from Spring Holiday Cards. They are invites for a teacher appreciation breakfast at Drakes Creek. I will add the invite info on a label and adhere to the backs.

2) Skunk holding #7 is a standard sized card I made using Birthday Bash for my niece who I now realized is turning 8. Oh well. I am sure someone will turn 7 someday!

3) Purple/ Black Flower is a standard sized card with a flower cut from 50 States, how about that! I used some Cuttlebug folders to add dimension and a gem in the flower center. This card will be for someone on a swap board. I hope they like it!

4) The bear was a make and take at retreat. The image can be printed from a Flower Soft CD. We then just added Flower Soft to the flowers. I double matted and added a ribbon and bow made with DW's Bow Maker. And my very own Bow Maker arrived with several others yesterday, LOL!

Stampin' Up

Thanks to Melissa for hostessing such a lovely gathering this evening. Wonderful refreshments were served in her beautiful home. Vicki was a great demonstrator, this is the beautiful card we made together. I even learned some new tricks!

Paris Birthday

Jeanette is going to a birthday party this weekend for a friend who is into the Paris themed stuff. I whipped up this gift bag and card for her tonight, I hope she likes it. The poodle is cut from Once Upon a Princess, the Eiffel Tower is cut from Wall Decor. Pink bag compliments Mighty Dollar.
