Heartfelt Thanks

So I am really sorry that I haven't posted in awhile. Life just got super crazy at home and work and it didn't leave any time for scrapin, crafting, or bloggin. So I am sorry to all those that are following.

So first on the list is a card I made to enter into Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge over at My Creative Time. The theme was "Frame It" using Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge or any older cartridge you have. Well I do not own many of the older cartridges since I just started collecting cartridges at the end of 2009. So I was flipping through the "Just Because Cards" cartridge and ran across the cutest tree with a swing. I thought it would make a beautiful thank you card. So without further adue here is my Throwback Thursday Challenge entry :) I hope you enjoy it.

Kraft card stock cut at 4.25 x 5.5" the long way
Cream card stock cut at 4 x 5.25" using the Cricut cartridge George & Basic Shapes
Patterned paper cut at 3.75 x 5" using the Cricut cartridge George & Basic Shapes
The patterned paper cut has a shape from Just Because Cards cut in the middle to form the frame.
The tree is from Just Because Cards and cut at 3 x 3.59"
The dark green tree top is cut at 3 x 2.44"
The patterned paper layer is cut at 3 x 2.44" and pop dotted on the dark green tree top layer
The stamp is from My Pink Stampers Every Day Occasions stamp set
I used an Elmer's Painters opaque paint marker in white for the corner dots

Happy Birthday

Alright, so on to the other card I made recently. I made this for a good friend of mine. It was her birthday weekend last weekend and what better way than to celebrate with a cupcake of your very own. So here is the yummy card.

This card was created in my Gypsy.
I used the Cricut cartridge Sweet Treats for the entire card.
The cup cake wrapper was cut at 5.20 x 6.10. I took 1 cupcake wrapper, then copied that first one, flipped it and rotated it so the two would fold up on each other. I welded two rectangles from George & Basic Shapes so it would form a pocked when folded onto itself.
The striped layer was a layer for the cupcake wrapper cut at the same size as the base.
The cupcake was cut at 3.72 x 4.65". I did the same thing with the cupcake that I did with the wrapper. I grabbed the first cupcake and flipped it and welded the two at the cherry.
I cut the remaining parts (cherry) at the corresponding size to the cupcake.
I added a little bling on the cherry.
The "Happy Birthday" is a My Pink Stamper "Friends & Family" stamp.
Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby when it was on sale a while ago.
