The cutest lil reindeer ever! Made with Storybook Creator 4.0

Happy Birthday Princess

My Grandniece will be 8 on Friday so I wanted to make her a special card. She loves all things princess so I think she will like this.

Christmas Hat

Now that all the Fall babies are here it's time to start working on the Christmas babies. This is my newborn Christmas hat I just finished knitting. It's cute but I think the next one will have a white pom pom on top instead of the little stem. If anyone wants the pattern, please comment and I will post it for you.

Christmas Cards

Some days I really question my sanity...... This is one of them. I cut out 72 sleigh's with my Cricut then 72 backgrounds. I'm giving my Cricut a much needed rest!! Getting them off the mat and gluing all of them was quite a bit of work but the worst is done.... I hope :) I used my Cricut Trim The Tree Cartridge for the sleigh, Creative Memories White Shimmer cardstock and Creative Memories Cranberry cardstock for the sleighs.

Halloween Card

I wanted to share this AWESOME Halloween card my niece made of my Grand niece Sophia. They found the perfect background at the Zoo to get the effect she wanted. She used Storybook Creator from Creative Memories to create the perfect card!!! Way to go Tonya!!! I LOVE it!!!
