Toy Story " Color Me" Birthday Card

   Hello, thanks for stopping by. It's been colder and wet here in Indiana. Blah! 

It will soon be Halloween and I haven't made anything yet. I have so many things going on not sure if I'm going to find the time. 

I did get a card made for my Great Great Niece Berkley. She is turning two. She is having a Toy Story themed party.




So I printed out a Jessie Image and was planning on coloring it and decided it would be fun to let her color It. 

I made a star and added the words color me on it In Design Space. Printed it out with my printer and then just cut it out by hand and Cut out a number 2 and embossed it.

 I also thought it would be fun to add some strips of patterned paper to it. 

I don't remember ever adding strips of paper to a card and really thought it was fun. 

Because I didn't color the Image, this card actually came together fairly quickly.

 I actually made a sketch of the card of what I wanted before I started. I think it makes the process go by a little faster if you have an idea in your head of what you want. 

That's going to be it for me today. I do have some birthday things coming up. Hopefully I can get something created for Halloween. Just not sure if I will get the time.

Again thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Stay Safe and Stay Crafty!

Sunflower Card & Peaches and Cream Pie

  Hello so glad you could stop by. Are any of you enjoying the beautiful fall days where your from? It has been so nice here. The trees are beautiful right now. 

Needed a birthday card for one of my sister's and decided I would make a card from a bundle that I bought from Dreaming Tree and wanted to share it with you all.

Loving that this was so simple to make. Just had to cut the layers with my Cricut.

Cardstock that I used was Crushed Curry, Summer Sun, Close to Cocoa and white.

 I did add some sparkly yellow dots to the corners and stamped some speckled dots for the middle of the flowers. The sentiment is from a stamp set from Cardz TV. I also added a little twine behind the sentiment.

Have you ever checked out Dreaming Tree? Love all the awesome 3D SVG designs and they have several free cuts.

Here is a link if you would like to check it out.

Walker's Birthday Card and Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings


  Hello Crafty friends. Thanks for stopping by. Yesterday was my grandsons birthday. He turned 15. Before I know it he will be driving.😲

 Kids just seem to grow up so fast and I don't really like it. Wish there was a way to slow down time.

I had decided that I wouldn't make him a card. But being a card maker I just couldn't help myself. Also there were some challenges I wanted to enter.

 So yesterday before we gave him his presents I was grabbing cardstock, adhesive, stamps and starting up my Cricut. I knew I didn't have much time so I thought the number 15 would work perfect. 

This may have been the fastest card that I have made. Ha! 

I'm glad I decided to make it. He really liked it and that's what card making is all about.



Since the grandkids are living next door now. They stop in here first because their Mom isn't home from work yet. 

 They are tired and hungry when they get home. So I decided to make one of their favorites.

They were super excited that I made them some Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings. I usually make these in the cold winter months but It's now fall and already having some chilly days.

So I thought I would share the recipe with all my crafty friends.  I'm sure you and your family would like it to. It's really good served with vanilla Ice cream.

Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings


Ingredients you will need:

2 (8 each) cans Crescent Roll dough

2 large apples

2 sticks of butter

1 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon  (I put a little extra)

1 1/2 cup sprite

Preheat oven to 350 and butter a 9x13 pan

In a medium to large  microwave bowl melt butter.To that add cinnamon,sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Set aside.

Wash apples, peel and slice into 8 slices. Open and separate dough. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on dough, place apple slice and roll up.

Place in a buttered 9x13 pan. Pour mixture over apples. Pour sprite around the edges and in between the apples. Don't pour it over top.


Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown. I loosely place aluminum foil over the top the last 15 minutes or so to prevent burning.  



Thanks again for stopping by. If you try this yummy recipe let me know how it turned out. 

Happy day to you all.


Stay safe and stay Crafty!
