Birthday Card

It seems like the only time I get to make a card is when I need one. Someday, I would like to make a batch of cards, just to have on hand to give out when ready. Instead of making them a few days before I need them. Oh well, sometimes I work best under you?

I scored at a local garage sale, with the addition to my stock, a cuddlebug embossing plate. It made the embossed circles. The stamps came from a company called Paper Smooches. I found a set at Archiver's which prompted me to order two more from them directly. Here's their address:
Love them too!!
 Hope she likes her card!
Have a great day!

Loving my new cartridge....TEAM SPIRIT from Cricut!!

Two weeks ago I purchased Team Spirit off of When it came in the mail three days later, I was so excited to open it. Finally!! A tougher looking mascot for my children's school! It's ok to have a "cute" little tiger for the Elementary years, but as they get older-it just won't work.

After putting one together, the older kids were in love!! Here's what it looked like...

So, with school starting soon, binders could not be plain. My son got so many complements on his
two binders I made. Even from the teachers!!

After that, I was on a roll!! Next was water bottles. Now I am currently looking to make the whole football team water bottles with the tiger and their numbers!! Just have to find only 25 water bottles to add the vinyl tiger too.

I also added a small tiger with the sports that my kids play as a decal on my van. There isn't a picture of that....yet. I am hoping to post these onto Cricut's message board, but it all depends on how the system works with me today. I "had issues" with google earlier trying to blog from my Picasa account. Wish me luck!
