Time to... "Escape"

Good Evening Fellow Crafters (and to those who happened to stumble on my blog in a random google search).  ;)

A couple weeks ago, I needed a card for a teacher friend and didn't have any pre-made; so I was flipping through my Cricut Magazines for inspiration and found one.  I ended up using "Kate's ABC" cartridge; and what I thought was going to be a quick card, I realized this isn't going to be one.  LOL!

Here is the finished product...

Inspiration came from Cricut Magazine special edition "Cards" pg.15

Supplies: Cardstock-Stampin' Up; Patterned Paper- DCWV Travel; Stickles; Sharpie pen; Pearl Embellishment-Stampin' Up Pretties Kit, Letter Stickers-Unknown; White Gel Pen
I distress the "sky" paper.  Not too bad; if I say so myself.  ;)
That's all I have to share for now.  So until next time...

Patriotic Wreath

Good evening fellow crafters and/or random person (who happened to stumble upon my blog)!   ;)

When looking at a calendar and taking note of the holidays and special occasions, there are several holidays that focus on appreciation for America and those who have served in our military.  When I was making my wreath, I wanted to be able to use it more than once a year; so when deciding on the images I kept that thought in mind.  Here is my finished project...

Materials used: 12 inch wire wreath - Michael's; Tulle - local Sew Store; Cricut - markers & cartridges "Stand and Salute" & "Independence Day"; Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Creative Imaginations, Recollections; Red/White Twine - The Twinery; Ribbon and Fibers - Michael's; Glitter (lots of it) - Martha Stewart.  :)

Dog Tags read: "Support Our Troops" and "Let Freedom Ring"
Give a shout out to my brother who helped me out with how to "bling" the Eagle.  ;)
Well...that's it for now; so until next time...
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!
