Cricut Crafts Blog Hop!!!


Hello and welcome to the   Cricut Crafts Blog Hop! So glad that you could make It! If you just happened to come by my Blog and would like to hop along. You can start at the beginning at  Jenny's (Crazy about Cricut) Blog.

I Love my Cricut and We (My Cricut Machine)and I was so excited to be a part of this Hop. I call my Cricut (Cricky Girl). Do you all have names for your Cricuts?

I made two Cards for this Hop. The First one is very special. I made it for my Grandma Sophie's 100th Birthday. She Loved her Card!


Cricut Cartridges that I used-

Flowers- Paisley Cartridge
Leaves- Flower Shoppe
Banner- Can't remember
Number 100- Cricut Classic Font

 I adhered all of the tiny Blue Flowers with Crystal Effects on to 5 different sized circles. With foam tape in between each one. I also sponged each petal with Bashful Blue Ink.
After I cut the leaves,I wet them with a little water and scrunched them up. After they dried I sponged Old Olive Ink on them.

For my second Card- I made a Phone Shaped Card. I used the Wild Card 2 Cartridge. 
I added a second handle on top of the first one and added Foam Tape. I also added foam tape under the dial. 



I thought it turned out Cute! I Love phones like this. They bring back a lot of memories for me. One of my Sister's still uses one of these. I Love using it when I visit her. 
 I have a little Giveaway for one person. Two Packages of k& Company Stickers. One Halloween and One Christmas.

 For your chance to win just leave a comment on this post and be a follower. I will use random .org to pick a winner. I will post the winner October 5th or 6th. So make sure you come back to see if you won.

Hope you liked my Cards and thanks again for hopping along.

Happy 100th Birthday!!

Hi, So glad you could stop by. I am a little late getting this posted, but I wanted to share with you all that my Grandma Sophie just celebrated her 100th Birthday. She is such a wonderful woman and has been such a great role model. She was so excited that they had a full page all about her in our home town paper. She had always said if I make it to 100, I would like my picture in the paper. So she was just tickled to have a whole page.

We had her a big Birthday party at her farm. Had the food catered so that no one would have to cook and some of the family played Blue Grass and Gospel Music. It was just a fun day.

So Thankful to God for blessing her with a long life. Thought I would share a few pictures of her party.

My Beautiful Grandma!
