Get Well Card

My Dad is having back surgery on Thurs. and I made this with him in mind.  On the inside it says "That's what we wish for You".
I used A Childs Year for the silhouette , the The Cuttin' Up for the lettering  and a Fiskars border punch so I couold weave the  ribbon.  I also used the I-Rock to put some bling on, I'm beginning to really like that tool.

It's hard to believe that Halloween is just around the corner.... where did our summer go??  I recently got the Happy Hauntings and Mini Monsters carts and I finally got the chance to play with them.  
When my  son was young  , Halloween was a big deal around our house.  But wouldn't you know it... he grew up... and it just didn't have the same appeal.
So i thought I'd change it up alittle bit this year.  I'm starting with cards and I'll work my way into doing some decorating.  These 2 carts have some fun things to work with  so  I'll have to see what i can all come up with.

I joined a Christmas Tag swap on the Cricut Circle. I have to make 5 tags and this is the first one made.  I used the PaperDoll Dress-up cart for the manger scene, the people are cut sat 1.25 in., the stable is 2x3 in. and the tag is 3x 4 in.  Took me all evening to make just one... only 4 more to go ??!!

Toy Story

My grandsons 5th birthday is today, and yes, we are late, so I made this card for him.   I just received the  Toy Story cart, so being he loves all the characters from there I thought it'd be a great opportunity to try it out.  I first attempted Buzz Lightyear and there was so many little pieces, I got frustrated and gave up. So I went onto a different character and being I was running short on time, I went with an easier one with less pieces, so we got T-Rex.   I made him at 4 inches, I thought he turned out pretty cute.  I used the Celebrations cart for the number 5 and scalloped square, both cut at 1.5 in. The cupcake border punch is a Martha Stewart punch.
