Christmas Card Using Cricut Artiste and Cricut Artbooking Cartridges


Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  It has cooled down a little; but still hot here in Southern CA.  I have been working to get a few cards created.  It seems to take me so long to create one.  I wish I had the skills to create several in one day; as I see other people doing.  It usually takes me several hours - up to a week to create one card.  


I created this card for the Digi Stamps 4 Joy 2014 Monthly Christmas challenge.  When you use their free Digi one month; you receive the next month free as well. This is my 10th card; using their free digis. I love all of Margy's creations; and it is a lot of fun using them. There are two fabulous Digi sentiments for October; so be sure to check it out.  It is never too early or too late, to start creating your Christmas cards.  


This month is a Sentiment Set.  I have chosen one of them to use on my card.  I thought about using the second one inside; but decided to save it for another Christmas card.  I chose to create an Easel card.  They seem to be my favorite card right now.  I like that you can see the inside and the outside at the same time.  


I used a new CTMH stamp set that I just bought.  It is CTMH Frosty Fun - D1611.  I love the house with the trees and the snow. I hope you enjoy my card.

Birthday Card For Male Using Cricut Art Philosophy and Artbooking Cartridges


Hello bloggers.  How are you doing?  My husband's family left on Saturday afternoon; so now I need to get things cleaned up for my son and his family; who are visiting Nov. 1st.  We are keeping two grandchildren for a week.  I am excited; as we will hopefully get a chance to go to Disneyland while they are here.  They have never been there; so it is always fun taking people who haven't been there before.  

It is time for another fabulous challenge at DS4J Challenge 102 Animals.  Be sure to check out all of the wonderful creations by the DT.  The challenge will last for two weeks.  This one should be an easy one for you.  I chose two images to merge together; DS4J Forest and DS4J Kudu Bull.  This is a South African animal; but I loved it as soon as I saw it.  I created this birthday card for my brother in law; because he loves deer.  I thought he would enjoy seeing something from another country.

We would love for you to use one of the DS4J; which gives you a chance to win the $10 gift certificate to be used in the DS4J store.  There are over 1,000 digi stamps at http://digistamps4joy.co.za for you to choose from.  Otherwise, you can use any digi stamp or rubber stamp for a chance to win one of the other prizes.

Anniversary Card Using CTMH Pathfinding Paper, Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artiste and Cricut Artbooking Cartridges

Digi Stamps 4 Joy Challenge 101 - Anniversary


Hi everyone reading this.  I so appreciate you stopping by my blog.  I hope you are all doing well.  My husband took his family to San Francisco on Sat; so they will be home shortly.  I am trying to get this post done before they arrive.  I am use to the quiet; not use to having people here day and night.  It is quite an adjustment; plus the issues with my smell problem, too.

I had a few days to myself; with lots of peace and quiet.  I didn't do much crafting; because I was working on drawing names for the 28 prizes I am giving away on my blog celebration; which just ended Sept. 30th.  I finished the drawings and the post completed; so now I need to notify people and ship out the CTMH and other prizes for the US winners.  I forgot how much work it is to do all of this.  LOL!  I love giving things away; so it has been fun!   Check out the winners list by clicking here; and if your name is on it; please email me at purpleglocreations (at) socal (dot) rr (dot) com to claim your prize.

It is time for the DS4J Mid-Challenge 101 Anniversary.  I chose these adorable owls; which are DS4J Owl Always Love You.  They are so adorable!  I love owls and they seem to be very popular right now.
