Just a few cards :)

 These are just a few of my first cards. I had not gotten really big into stamping yet and used my Cricut Create to make most everything with these cards.  I hope you enjoy!!!

 I made this one for my hubby for our 4 year wedding anniversary.  I was not too fond of the glitter hearts...they were a bit of a cover-up :)

 I made this birthday card for a friend of my brother's.  I absolutely loved the colors of this one.  I used my Don Juan, Wild Card, and Once Upon a Princess cartridges to make the designs.

I love how this one opened!!! To this day, this is still one of my favs! Hope you all enjoy and can use the to inspire your craft for the day :)

New to the Blog


I follow many different blogs and decided that maybe it was time I finally set one up of my own.  I have always been a very crafty, creative person and enjoy many different things. I have been married to my husband for four years now and we have two little ones.  Elise is going to be 4 in June and my son Noah will turn 2 this Thursday.  Time flies and I have found that including them in my crafting helps us grow closer together.  MY daughter is just as crafty as I am and she absolutely LOVES to sit and make projects with me.  I really enjoy card-making and scrap-booking.  I absolutely love stamping and have made it my new addiction! :) I also bake cakes and have a face book page Courtney'sCakes you should check out that displays the cakes I have made.  I am trying to get my fan numbers up on there to help get my name out there.  I just applied for nursing school a week ago so I am anxiously awaiting for that acceptance letter! I know that it will not come until the end of May, which is very nerve racking!  I hope to get some followers and to be able to inspire some of those around me.  I have been through a lot in life and know that sometimes you just need a little inspiration to get you through those hard times.  Enough for now...hope to continue to add more.
The Card is a little something I made this week for my neighbor and his family who's mother had passed.  I love the bright color and thought it was good to cheer them up :)
