     Isn't this just the cutest Kitty? Talk about a Diva! I told you that my favorite new cart is Paisley. This cat is a puur-fect example. The die cut has her sitting on a pillow and she has a crown on her head. Its a super simple cut. All the layers were cut @ 3.5" .  The shadow is rather large in proportion to the rest of the cut so I decided not to use it. Of course there had to be some stickles to add the bling factor so Added some to the crown in gold. I also used the lavender stickles on the pillow.
     If the green background paper looks familiar, it should. This is a scrap of the paper by Anna Griffin that was used for the engagement card I made for the Cricut Circle card contest that I won! This paper makes the cat really stand out and gives her a regal look. The other pink papers are also scraps from Anna Griffin. It still needed something so I grabbed a piece of white scrap card stock and a Martha Stewart paper punch and made some "lace. These rhinestones are not Creative Charms, if they were they would sparkle more!

My Pretty Pony

     One of my grand daughters just loves ponies. She received an American Girl doll for Christmas but was even more excited to get the AG pony. It was quite comical because she "disappeared to the bedroom and was brushing her hair. It was just too cute!
     Just before Christmas Michaels' had a sale on select cartridges, one of which, was "Paisley" by Provo Craft. This is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The cartridge has some super cute images including this pony.  I cut this pony @ 3.5" including the shadow and inked all the edges. The mane and tail needed something so out came the stickles! I used the silver color and added some hot pink gradient jewels from Creative Charms for the corners.
     In order to keep up with my New Years' Resolution, I pulled out my bin that I keep all my scrap papers in and found these beautiful pink papers. I also found a small piece of white card stock so I pulled out some stamps and made this fancy heart. Now it just needs a stamped Valentines message inside and it is done. I did make 2 of these so my youngest grand daughter will get one too. I can't wait to show you the cat card, it's puuur-fect.

Lover Boy

     I have been super busy especially with the ice/snow build up on our roof. However, in my down time I have been making Valentines Day cards to go with the silk screened shirts for the grand kids. They all love Toy Story and Woody is a favorite of one grandson in particular.
