A new cut file - Mug

I have been seeing mug cards everywhere, from galleries to stores...so I thought I would give one a try!  This is a cut file from George and can fit on the 12x6 mat.  I currently have it on the 12x12 so be sure to change your mat size if you want it on the original Cricut.  The cut file is here:  Mug Cut File
I used double sided cardstock for mine, but you could cut two (one paper up, one paper down) and glue them together to achieve the same look.  Once cut, place glue along the bottom edge and up the side to form a pocket and insert envelope or packet of your choice!

And it gets another one...

Well, this little piggy is for my neice...she now has the Swine Flu.  Since I had just sent her brother's card, I figured she'd need a little more girly version.  Poor little thing.  My poor sister is cleaning her heart out trying to stop this from spreading - seems there just isn't much you can do to prevent it once it is in the home.  I hope the cards at least makes them laugh a little...

Pig is hand-drawn by Jenn and colored with Copics.  The green bits are Glitter Dome stickers by Mark Richards.

Turkey Gone Chicken!

This is a hand-drawn turkey gone chicken!  I know he was suppose to be brown but the yellow just begged to be used...so we will label this turkey chicken (for now)!  This is something my sister agreed to draw for me (she is just the best!)!  I have to tell you, I could get use to this "I need a ...." and it just magically ends up in my inbox!  So...what do you think?  I have a few more coming so stay tuned!  Who knows, maybe he will even be available someday!

SPCC WCMD Combo #5


This is for the SPCC WCMD Combo #5 Challenge!  I used Flower Soft for the flowers which contains the gray, caramel, and red colors.  The buttlefly was colored with Copic Markers using caramel and red and the inking was done with gray ink! 

Introducing a Moose named Riley...

I have been looking for this guy (he is a moose named Riley!) and I am so excited to have him (along with another one) in my collection!  I ran across a new stamp company called Hanna Stamps a couple weeks back and I knew right away that I had to give them a try!  I colored him with Copic markers and then went back in and put flower-soft on his face/neck area to make him look fluffy...isn't he just to cute!?!  I think he'd be perfect for Sleep-over invites!  You will have to pop over to their site to see the other stamp sets they carry I really adore them!

This is for the SPCC #18 challenge.
