UPDATE - Masculine Trendy Trees Card

So when my husband came home, I showed him the card - he said it looked like a card for a little boy with the light blue background. So I tried it on brown and we both liked the look better. Thanks, Honey!

Masculine Trendy Trees Birthday Card

I just finished this birthday card for a friend of ours. I used Trendy Tress for the tree images and the dotted swirls on the blue background.

Finally done! Whew!

So...I started this card on Friday with my SIL Michelle. I tried cutting tiny letters with my Cricut but couldn't make them look the way I wanted. So, after a 3 day break, I decided to do the quote on the computer with PhotoShop. I wasn't sure if I would like it but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Let me know what you think... :)

Oh, I left the inside blank - I figured it could be used for lots of purposes (birthday, thank you, thinking of you, etc)!

The phone is cut from - From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge.
Font on the Quote is - Hobo

Happy Birthday, Alyssa!

Yesterday was my niece Alyssa's B-day and I made her this card - isn't it adorable?!

I used the Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge for the guitar, "Girls" and "Rock". I cut "you" from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I stickled the word "Rock" for a little bling! LOL

Here comes a new card!

My friend Tammy came over and we made this adorable card. We were thinking for a birthday but I think you could use it as a thank you card, too.

For those that are wondering I used several Cricut cartridges for this card...

The cake and word "Cake" are from - From My Kitchen
The words, "You take the" are from - Plantin Schoolbook
The frame behind the cake is from - Songbird

I made my 1st batch of crock-pot split pea soup today! It turned out so good, I just had to share. Here is the recipe if anyone is interested....

16 oz of split peas
1.5 cups of chicken broth
4.5 cups of water
2 carrots, diced
1 potato, diced
3/4 of an onion, diced
diced ham to taste (my family doesn't care for ham so I use about 1/8 a cup just for flavor)
1.5 teaspoons of kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Add all ingredients and cook on high for 7 hours. Enjoy!
