Purple...nothing rhymes with Purple

Allright this card was originally inspired by the challenge at cuttlebugspot! The challenge was to create something that was monochromatic, I used the script folder. Then my friend goingcricrazy on the cricut MB posted a tutorial for these awesome flowers which I just had to try! Here is the link http://www.memoriesartwork.com/living_to_create/2009/09/fantastic-flower-video-tutorial-by-donna-salazar.html
Then I realized I had no leaves and I couldn't be throwing green leaves on a monochromatic card so I tied a bow onto the back of the flower to make leaves and added my two little buttons. Then I realized I actually made a card that fit the bill over at http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/ this week. You had to use stitching and buttons! I love my purple card!

Halo Card

No challenge or sketch here :) Just the card I made for my wonderful husband for his birthday! He loves playing Halo, so my card is my best attempt at a Halo helmet!

Cards & a Holiday Planner

I made this for my cousin's wedding, but I usually chicken out and go store bought last second. We will see! It says "to have and to hold."
My cousins made cute holiday planners last year, and since I have planners for everything else I decided to give it a try! I'm going to add a calendar on the inside front cover and the back is for reciepts.

Pictures from the Shower

These are some pictures from before the Baby Shower! I loved how the tables looked!

Thank you Card

I was so lucky to have the opportunity to throw my brother's girlfriend's shower. I had so much fun and was so glad everyone enjoyed it! I made her this card as a thank you for "trusting" my creativity for her shower. Thanks for looking!
