Birthday Card

My granddaughter just had her 12th birthday. It is a really big deal for her because we have always told her she had to have a babysitter until she was 12. This is the card I made her.
She has always been our princess.  This was made on my new E2 machine I bought from  HSN.

  • This is a standard A2 light pink card base. 51/2" x 81/2" scored and folded in half.
  • The teal poka dot paper layer is 4"x 51/4".
  • The Label is #4 from Cricut Essentials pg 30 button 14. Cut (I think) both layers at 41/2".
  • The princess is from Cricut Decals pg 53 button 33. It's under pairs 1. Cut at 31/2". 
  • Finished with google eyes and pink buttons.
  • My Happy Birthday sentiment is inside.
  • Papers are American Crafts, and DCWV. Buttons and eyes are from JoAnns.
 This card could be used for other occasions besides birthdays. Both cartridges I used, Cricut Essentials and Cricut Decals comes pre-loaded on the new E2 machine. I love love love this machine!! I hope you like my card.

Hope you all have a wonderful week. Please leave comments. I love hearing from all of you. Hugs, Pam.

Learning New Things

Good afternoon crafters.

I have spent the whole week-end trying to find out how to do different things on this blog. I did find some YouTube vids on a few things. I can't find anything on how to get a button for your blog. So if anyone can help me I sure would appreciate your wisdom and knowledge. 

I will be posting another card in a day or two. I just have had to rest. I can only do things at a very slow pace. My back and legs say no more often than they say yes.
I thought you might get a kick out of seeing my very spoiled fur baby Dallas with his Dad. This is how they spend their evenings watching TV. He really is a loving animal. He is giving Dad loves. I hope you all had a wonderful week-end. Hugs, Pam

Followers, yeah!!

I went on the blog this morning and yeah I finally have followers. I am so excited!!! Why someone would look at my blog is beyond me, but I am so glad they did. Now I must actually do something to honor these ladies, and  be a blogger, wow! I will start by putting up a couple cards I have made, but there will be no directions because I didn't take notes when I made them. I can tell you the paper is either DCWV, ColorBok or The Paper Studio. The lady stamps are Emerson stamps. I love these stamps, they are so cute! Please share your comments, I would love to hear from you. Hugs, Pam
