Laughling Lola and Heartfelt Birthday Wish

Two Laughing Lola cards I made with the new Heartfelt Birthday Wish stamp.  This stamp is only $2.95.  I colored it in with our alcohol markers.  I used Card Pattern 23 from the new Make it from your Heart Vol 2.  I also added some black tulle.

A Chocolate Affair

I wanted you to see this cute little 3 x 3 card I made with this month's stamp of the month.  It's called "Chocolate Affair".  I made a bunch of 3 x 3 cards to have on hand.  Perfect to slip in a gift or to give someone a note on.  You only have until August 31st (Yikes!  That's only 9 more days!) to get this stamp set for FREE when you place an order of $50 or more.  This D size stamp set has 8 different chocolate images as well as 8 chocolate sentiments.  Please go to my blog to see the rest of the cards I created. 
I'm also extending my special offer of Free Tax and Shipping on the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  For only $99 you get the cartridge, 3 exclusive stamp sets and 3 packages of coordinating chipboard.  This will also qualify you for the Free Stamp of the Month but please email me your order instead of ordering on line. 

Sarita Card

I made this card for a friend of mine's son.  I've known him since before he was born and I can't believe he is going to be 21 years old!  The idea for this card is my take on a card in the new Fall Winter Idea Book.  If you would like your own please contact me.

Laughling Lola mini monogram cards

I made these 3 x 3 mini monogram cards for my mom for her birthday.  I used the Laughing Lola paper and cut an image from the cricut.  I used Lagoon ink and some Aqua dots for accent.
