Birdhouse Card, Stretch your Imagination

Hello Crafty Friends,
  Wow, what a crazy,fun, and busy week!! I hope you all had a great Presidents day and Valentine's day weekend. 

Today's card is inspired by spring. I am so tired of winter and in Northern Utah the inversion is horrible and is making me crazy! My youngest has really bad breathing problems and the inversion is especially bad for him so we have to keep him inside on bad air days which makes him stir crazy and in turn makes me crazy. :) 

My card is a shape card I made with the Cricut, Stretch Your imagination cartridge. I just welded 2 Shadow pieces together and layered the cut pieces on the front. Easy, peasy. 

Card Recipe:

Cricut Cartridge: Stretch your Imagination pgs 64 (birdhouse) 63 (Bird)

Papers: Recollections (Kraft), Flower print (scraps)

Embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

Stamps: The face is from Peachy Keens, Everyday Face Parts (Retired), Sentiment, is from dollar bin at Michaels 6 years ago. I colored it in with Bic markers

Extras: Pink Twine, Pink Button, White Jelly Roll Pen, Stampin Up Close to Cocoa 

I hope you enjoyed my card and have a great day!!

Treasure Chest ~ Cricut Imagine Buccaneer, Cricut Sweethearts

Hello Crafty Friends, 

   I can't believe Valentine's day is right around the corner! I love Valentine's day because of my kids. My husband and I are not very big on this holiday we do don't do the big dinner, jewelry, chocolates or flowers. We feel that is what our anniversary is for. However, we do really enjoy showing our kids extra love during this month.

You may have noticed that most of my valentine cards and projects are not very pink, girly, or filled with tons of lace or hearts, this is because all of our kids are boys except for one. (The girly ice cream card is for her.) Today's project is for my oldest son so I decided to go with a Treasure chest. This cut is from the Imagine cartridge Buccaneer. Although I love the cartridge and all of the cartridges I  bought for my imagine, I absolutely HATE my imagine! It has never worked right and it cost a fortune. :( anyway, because of that I cut this out on my explore :)  I found some really great red wood grain paper in my stash, perfect for adding some valentine red into my project and the wood pattern was  prefect for the treasure chest. I love the way the added crinkle ribbon and brads gave it texture.
I'll be adding this project into these challenges:

Cards Tv 3-D: Valentine's Treat Box or Bag

Card Recipe:

Cricut Cartridges: Buccaneer (Chest), Sweethearts (Heart Lock)

Paper: Craft Smith: Burgundy Rose

Sentiment: Printed from my computer
