Delicious Doodles Swirly Snowflake Tree

 Delicious Doodles

Over at Penny's Challenges the challenge is Anything Goessome of the Design Team is using images from Delicious Doodles.  I chose the image Swirly Snowflake Tree.

I colored it with Copic Markers YG17, YG13, YG06, Yg03, B00, B21, B41, Stickles:  Cotton Candy, Waterfall and Diamonds. 

I used gauze blue ribbon, and cut a snowflake on the cricut out of Shrinky Dink material and shrunk it in the oven, I added 3 beads and hund it on the ribbon.  I used a Close To My Heart - Merry Christmas - stamp for the sentiment. 

I uploaded the swirly tree in the Cricut and cut the tree 4 times to give the piece depth and used foam tape to pop it up on the card even more.  I used the Divine Swirls Cricut Cuttlebug folder for the blue background layered on black matte paper.  I layered the inside with golden sprinkle and polkadot from Fancy Pants papers.

Thanksgiving! Thanks! Giving!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #314-Thanks or Thanksgiving
Make a project about thank you cards or Thanksgiving projects.

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at


This is my entry:

 This turkey is from the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter - one of my very favorite cartridges. The box is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.

This cute box is has a curved top that is held together by this tab.

I filled this turkey with peanut and plain M&Ms in Autumn colors.  It's fun how it opens up to this wonderful little treat.
I had to reinforce the legs of the turkey on both sides of the box to hold the weight of the M&M's.  Other than that this project was a quick project to put together.  I made 6 of them in quick order to put around the children's tables.

Make It Sparkle #313

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Fantabulous Cricut 
Monday challenge!

Challenge #313-Make it Sparkle

Make it sparkle with glitter, gems, etc!

This Weeks Sponsor

I used this really cute Bathtub image from Pretty Cute Stamps
I uploaded it and cut it with my Cricut, then cut the Duck Picture, Bubbles and Towel. The duck is from the New Arrival Cartridge and the Bubbles, Towel and perfume, shampoo bottles are from the Paper Doll Cartridge

I added Stickles to all the bubbles to make them sparkle and shine.
The sentiment printed on my printer - Wash Away Your Troubles with some Bubbles.

Image result for easel card instructions for display

This is an easel card so I always put the little instruction print on the back.

The paper is Fancy Pants 6x6 Christmas Papers.  I liked this paper because it looked like wallpaper.  I used clear vellum for the bubbles, accented the edges with blue crayola marker and added stickles for sparkle.

Sparkle and Sprinkle #349

This image is from Sparkle and Sprinkle for Challenge #349 over at

I fussy cut the image 3 times, cut out some of the flowers and layered them up with different sizes of foam squares, creating a really neat 3D effect. I added some Stickles to the centers of the flowers to give some sparkle and depth. Layered them on some Project Life paper, some small strips of paper and scallops and some uniball white pen stitching, layered the sentiment on some brown paper and popped it up above the image.

This pre-colored image was fun to use and created a very nice effect by adding a few different techniques.
