Card Contest

So did you all hear about the card contest PC is having? Well Jinger posted the contest on Facebook and you had to use one of the following carts:

* Wall Decor & More
* Don Juan
* Winter Lace

You also had to use a product by Anna Griffin. All cards (originals) had to be sent to PC by today. Well sure hope mine made it in time ... yep hubby forgot to mail it priority with delivery confirmation .... SOOOOOO I guess I'll never know. LOL And we only had like a week to get the cards done.

I wasn't going to enter because I didn't have any Anna Griffin products but happened to be at Michael's and they had a paper pad on clearance and I just knew I had to enter.

This is what I came up with:

Bazzil Pink Cardstock (Card Base)
Recollections Cardstock (Shimmer Black)
American Crafts (Silver)
Anna Griffin - Peyton Stack (pattern/pink paper ... Diamonds and heart)
Cricut Carts:
Wall Decor and More - heart and "love"
George and basic shapes - card base
Shrinky dinks (charms)

Got Spirit?!?

Happy New Year!!!

I know it's been a while since I've posted but things have been crazy busy with the holidays and getting "orders" completed but I think things are finally slowing down and can get back to blogging.

So at work we have a spirit team that is supposed to promote a fun atmosphere at work and plan activites. So of course what better way to do that then have personalized T-shirts???

The design was made on my gypsy and then used the freezer paper method to paint them on the shirts.

Cricut Gypsy:
* 3 Birds on Parade
* Alphalicious
* Base Camp
* Cursive 101
* George and Basic Shapes
* Opposite Attract
* Zooballo

Then the idea came up to have spirit awards. So of course I'm addicted to making shrinky dinks. Takes me back to my childhood. So why not mimic our shirts and came up with these.

The charms at the bottom can be changed for the year/activiy that the awards are for.
