Valentines day cards

I couldn't come up with any ideas for Valentines for my husband and son. I kept putting them off day after day until I had almost no time to get them done. I ended up going on Pinterest to finally get ideas to get these cards made, I finished them about 10 minutes before they got home lol.

Wrestling card

My nephew LOVES John Cena (I don't even know if I spelled that right, see how much I know about wrestling) so I made him this card. I got the inspiration from a hat that that we bought him for Christmas. The background was to plain so I made lines on it just to give it some texture.

Butterfly magnets

I did more to these magnets than I usually do, I used  Ranger alcohol ink to ink the bottle caps. I don't use alcohol ink very often and I only have  3 colors but after making these I think I will invest in some more colors. The box I cut out on the Cricut using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and to accent it I added some scored vellum to the front.

Heart Wreath

Ok I have to brag up my hubby, he is the one who came up with the idea for this project. I was really stumped on what to make and hes the one who gave me the idea to make this, thank you Jason!! I really love how this turned out and I think I might have to make one of these that I can keep.

I made this using flowers that were smaller than the ones that I made in a previous post but they were made using the same steps. I cut out a heart in chipboard and one in pink paper using my Cricut. After gluing the paper to the chipboard, I stapled the ribbon to it using the TH Tiny Attacher. Then I just glued the flowers to it using a hot glue gun, once I got going it went really fast.

I am loving all my goodies from my friend

Crystal and I did a Christmas swap together but we decided to wait until January to ship it so we would have something to look forward to after Christmas. I LOVE what she sent me!!!!
 This matches the colors in my kitchen perfectly and looks awesome in there. It is also the only decoration besides the clock that I have in my kitchen so your eyes go to it the minute you walk through the door. I love this!!   
I love the design and size of this, now I can have a b-day book that will fit on my desk
All I can say is I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!!

This is so PERFECT for me! It is now on my desk where I can see it and have easy access to it.

Gift set of 4X4 cards

For this card set I decided to use a cartridge that I got awhile ago but have not actually used. I never thought I would ever utter those words "have not actually used" if you could see me right now you would see me hanging my head in shame. Ok im not really hanging it in shame but I am a little upset with myself for not using it before now since I bought it because I really wanted to use it. I am talking about the Cricut cartridge Preserves, it is a great cart with so many different uses, I would definitely recommend buying it.
