Whoo hoo! I discovered what my problem was & I won't bore you with the details but it had something to do with me having 2 gmail accounts. Anyway, I finished all the baby shower invitations & now I'm on to decorations & party favors. The shower is on Feb 12th so I have plenty of time but there are so many projects I want to do for it! I know, I know, I'm gonna have to choose which ones!
My mom offered to help me make a diaper cake (gulp!) but I still haven't decided if I'm brave enough to actually do it. I guess if I screw it up or can't do it I can just give her a giant bag or box of diapers! I know she'll appreciate them either way! I will be sharing all my projects as I go along over the next 12 days so please stop back by & check it out!
Before the baby madness sets in I had to do a thank you card for our former neighbor who had us over for dinner last week. She's 85 & still going strong! So here's the card I made, with the details below it.....
The card base is Kraft cardstock from my local JoAnn store. I cut it with my Cricut Expression & Gypsy using the "Art Philosophy" cartridge, at 5" using the card feature on pg. 34. If you want to purchase the Art Philosophy cartridge it is only available thru a Clost to my Heart consultant, which you can find by going to the CTMH website. This is totally a must-have cartridge! It comes in a bundle with a bunch of other awesome stuff so it's absolutely worth the $99!
Ok, moving on now.... The blue & green backgrounds were also from AP using the Base & Tag features on the same page as the card. Both papers were from my stash & the green was already pre-embossed. The cow image is from the "Pop-Up Neighborhood" cartridge, using the Accessory feature on pg. 54 & she's cut at 2.5". This was a Cricut circle exclusive cartridge & I really didn't care for the base images, but upon further investigation I discovered that it has the BEST Accessory feature ever!
Ok, moving on again (in case you didn't already notice I have a hard time focusing for more than 2 minutes at a time!)..... the tag is also from the AP cartridge, using the Base & Layer images on pg. 65. I used some Aleene's Paper Glaze on the red border. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's "Even More Punny-licious stamp set. I used "Black Diamond" Stickles on the nostrils & hooves, and of course some googley eyes. The twine is "Maraschino" from The Twinery.
Well, I think that's it! Now it's off to more baby shower projects!.... Thanks so much for stopping by!!
