Caroline's Card

I made this card for my good friend Caroline. She also happens to be a teacher...and a super Calculus tutor. She has been tutoring my son in math for a while...this last stint in Calculus. My son adores her. This card is a little thank you for all she's done. She really is the best...so the sentiment couldn't be any more perfect. I used a second apple on the inside of the card as a pocket for a gift card. She's also a scrapbooker and card maker. Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)

Cupcake card-My Creative Time die

I finally used the My Creative time Die that I won on one of their blog hops. It cut like butter. This turned out really cute...and no Cricut to be seen...gasp! Not the best pic...it was dreary outside when I took this pic. I also noticed that the border on my inside pic was loose...I fixed it...but am too lazy to retake the pic.  Thanks for dropping by...Lee-Ann :)

Chocolate is the best therapy

I'm very excited and honoured to be a guest designer on the blog Exploring Cricut.I made this cute little card for this post using the cart Sweet shop. I love chocolate dipped strawberries...who doesn't?
The stamp set from My Pink Stamper is just perfect for sweet things...and I don't know why...I've owned Diamond glaze forever...but I'm using it like crazy right now. I'm thinking of using it on letters for a layout next time. Thanks for dropping by...Lee-Ann :)

Apple of my eye.

I know...you guys are probably saying...enough with the fruit.Well this little card just was too cute not to make. I flipped his little mouth over so he's smiling. I also used Diamond glaze on his glasses...I had to do this twice...the first time the glasses curled...when I straightened them...they cracked. the second time I assembled the glasses on the Cricut mat and applied the glaze and let it dry in place...and volia...perfectly flat...I'm going to have to remember that for next time I use that glaze. I love how his glasses are all shiny like real ones. Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)
