Spring Time Bunny Card...

This card was made this afternoon and I did not use the cricut at all. For the bunny I used a Sizzix Bunny Die and it also included the little flower. Then I used the Cuttlebug "With Gratitude" flower embossing folder for the blue mat. I absolutely LOVE this embossing folder. If you do not have it yet I would recommend getting one. It is really so darling!!Behind that I used DCWV paper from the Linen Mat Stack.

This card was easy peasy!! And I love those kinds of Just last week I finally bought a sewing machine to use on my cards and scrapbook pages. The last time I used a sewing machine was in the 9th grade in home Surprisingly, I got the hang of it pretty quickly. I have been wanting one for a very long time and I just decided to get one now. I am really glad that I did. Adding real stitches to your cards or projects really add that something special and I love the look! The Spring Time stamp I had in my stash and so I just used that.

This card is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Then the mats I just cut to fit. I really did not measure this time because I was not sure where I was going with this card. The pink gem on the little pink flower was in a pack that I bought at Michael's awhile ago.

Anyhow, I wanted to get this posted now because we still have so much to do on our house. We are painting, adding new carpet, you know all the stuff you need to do to get ready to sell. Let me tell you that I am pooped and tired. I will be so happy when this whole process is over. I am not one for change!

So I hope you all have a wonderful day today. I will try to work on the other cowboy/cowgirl picture that will go in our kids bathroom later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by Two Pink Peas!! Talk to ya all soon! ~Terri

Cowboy, Horses & A Big Red Barn...

So as you all know we are getting our house ready to sell and we are also getting ready to build a brand new house. I wanted to decorate our kids bathroom into something different so I found this really cute cowboy/cowgirl theme but could not find any pictures to go with it. I decided to make 2 pictures to hang in the bathroom to go with the shower curtain and all of the other goodies that I bought. As soon as I am done I will add the finished pictures of the bathroom.

Anyway, I used the Old West Cricut Cartridge and A Child's First Year Cartridge to get all of these images. This was actually the first time that I used the Old West cartridge. I have to say that it is really adorable. I am no where done but wanted to share anyhow since it has been awhile since I added new projects. These 2 pictures will go into white
8 x 10 picture frames and will hang on the wall of the kids bathroom. This is just the first picture and it did not take me long at all. To be honest I am not 100% sure if I am going to use this exact picture or I may just come up with another idea. All I do know is that we have been running around like crazy people trying to find the perfect property to build our new house. Today I think we have narrowed it down. Once I get the bathroom done I will post pictures of the whole thing so you can see how cute it looks. The shower curtain and the rug are so adorable. I was not sure if I was going to just make a big cowboy boot and maybe a cowboy hat or do something more elaborate. Today was the first day that I got to work on it and this is what I came up with....but I am not sure if I am going to keep it or make something else. I guess only time will

It is almost 3am and I have to get my behind to bed. I am so tired. I will talk to you all tomorrow or the next day. Thanks for visiting Two Pink Peas!! I would love to hear all of your comments or suggestions. ~Terri
