 Purse: Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut Cartridge
Butterfly die: Stampin' Up
Paper for the purse was in my stash

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge - Rainbows

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I hope you all had a good weekend.  It was hot here in San Diego for March -- in the high 80s!  I would like it to stay cooler for a while but at least I'm not shoveling snow like some of my friends on the east coast.

This week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge is Rainbows.  Since St. Patrick's Day is this week, I decided to make a card for that:
Cloud, Rainbow and Pot of Gold Dies: Lori Whitlock
Banner: CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge
Paper: Recollections
Ink: Close to my Heart
Sentiment: My Creative Time

Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Sorry I wasn't able to post a project last week.  We moved on March 20th and we were up to our eyes in boxes.  I spent most of this past weekend setting up my craft room.  I thought I would have it done but there were a lot more boxes than I thought!  I will get it finished this week.  I'm really excited because my husband got me some new shelves from Ikea and now all my furniture matches.  I'm really happy with the way it is turning out.

Ok, on to our card challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.  This week is our sketch challenge based on this sketch:
Here is the card I made:
I just love this little elephant from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge!

Oval and banner dies: My Creative Time

Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!  I hope you are having a good week.  I have been so busy lately packing to move.  After living in our home for 17+ years, our landlord has decided he wants to sell the house so we have to move.  It's amazing how much stuff you can accumulate when you don't move for a long time.  We are now on a first name basis with the guys at our Goodwill collection center!  We did find a lovely new home only 1.5 miles from our current home so all is good (well, it will be once we finally move in!).

This week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is to make a project with pink/red or purple.  I decided to make a treat box for my co-workers and fill them with chocolate:
Die: Bubblegum Treat Box from My Creative Time
Heart Die: My Creative Time 
Paper: My Mind's Eye "Filled with Love"
Circle Punches: Stampin' Up
Sentiment: My Creative Time
Ink: Stampin' Up
Tulle: Joann's
