Hi Everyone!  One of my friends asked me if I would decorate some gift bags for her  to give to her Secret Pals at church.  Of course, I said yes.

For the first bag - I used the Love Struck cartridge cutting the shadow and heart out at 5".  For the tag, I cut out two shadow hearts and popped them together, then cut out the word Love from the cartridge at 1". 

For the second bag - I cut out a piece of white embossed paper at 4 3/4 x 5 3/4.  I then cut the same size out of die cut heart paper.  I then used Cricut Craftroom to make a frame using George's round rectangle which I popped on top of the red heart paper.  I cut the cherub out at 3" from the Sweethearts cartridge.  I embossed it using the heart dot embossing folder.  I popped it in the center of the heart die cut paper.  For the tag, I used the negative white center of the frame and cut out another 3" cherub.

All in all, I think they turned out cute!!  Thank you for stopping by!  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna

Hi Everyone!! Guess what!!! I got another phone call from Max today! He was so excited that I could barely understand what he was saying!! I finally figured out that his card to Mom - remember the one using the Bugaboo digi "Scruffy Puppy" - won the Color Challenge over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.

Tammy, at Bugaboo, even sent Max a badge to put on the blog. For his prize, Max won his choice of seven free digis from Bugaboo - he told me that since I helped him make the card, I could help him pick out the digis so we could make more cards together in the future. Now, isn't he just the sweetest!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll congratulate Max along with me. He's one special dog. Until another day, God Bless You!! Donna

Hi Everyone!!  With the first day of the month, comes new releases from Laurie at Doodle Pantry Digistamps.  I must say that the releases for the month of February are fabulous!!  I had a hard time choosing which new digi I wanted to create something with but I finally decided on the digi, Cupcake Ants. 

I wanted to make something for Jacob's teachers for Valentine's Day that would hold some fuzzy socks.  I decided to make a cupcake box using the Cricut cartridge Sweet Tooth Boxes. 

I cut the box out of bright blue cardstock at 10.5". 

I printed off cupcake digi papers from Doodle Pantry.  I cut the lid for the box using this paper.  I used the scraps of the cupcake paper and a Martha Stewart Border Punch to decorate the bottom of the box. 

I printed out the colored digi "Cupcake Ants" and popped it on top of the lid. 

I then took a pair of "fuzzy socks" and rolled them up to form a cupcake.  I then put a pompom on top for the cherry.  Easy Peezy!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Please jump over the Doodle Pantry store and see all the new releases and creations made by the Design Team.  You'll be glad you did!  Until another day, God Bless you!!  Donna
