Please Help and Vote for Your Favorite!

I had so many ideas for Christmas cards this year, I decided to make one of each of my designs (and some I didn't get to). I'm going to ask a big favor, and have you pick which one of these I make for our family and friends. I just can't decide! Please, HELP!!!

This is the Fireplace Scene.

Here is the link to her original card:

Please choose your favorite, and vote! I will have the voting open from today, Sept. 21 until Halloween, October 31. That will give me time to produce the cards and have them ready to send out for Christmas.

Thanks so much for your help... I'm really in a dilemma! I don't know which one I like best!

Just look to the right for the lil' voting buttons, and click on your favorite!

Latest Cards for Soldiers Challenge - Homecoming! 9/8 to 9/22

Our theme for this short challenge was Homecoming. So what do you initially think when someone says Homecoming?? High School! Prom, Court, King, Queen, Princesses on the Court, floats, parade, band, football game you hope your team wins, etc.

After reading the challenge closer, and looking at some of the other comments from the members, I realized it was the Soldier's that are coming home! (Even better than what I initially thought!)

So here is the card I made for the Homecoming challenge. I hope you like it!

Cricut Articles and Tips

I'm excited to see my Cricut tips article showing up on the Everything Cricut Blog.

Check out the link - I'm going to have a series of articles published on the site with ideas and things I've learned about using the Cricut. No, I don't profess to being an expert at the Cricut - but I've discovered a few things that might help you!

The articles are posted on the very right-hand side of the blog. Check out Everything Cricut - it's got LOTS of great information. You can also find a link under my favorite blogs.

Gift Card Holder

When we were on vacation in July, my dear friend watched the babies (kitties) for us, and I am always grateful to find someone who will take care of them while we are away... so I made her this little gift, inspired by Dawn's tutorial...

Here's the how-to on making it... I added some kitty pics, and had to improvise a little since I don't have the 2 punches Dawn has... I really like how it turned out!

I used my Paper Studio punches, my Fiskars paper cutter with both blades (scoring and cutting), Stickles in green, yellow, and gold, and some stamps I bought while we were on vacation.
