My second card, using Copics and my Cricut!!

This is a Thank you card for my friend, Tammy who lives in Vancouver, Washington. She and my friend, Lisa bought me a Coach purse for my 50th Birthday. I have been so blessed by having them in my life. They have always been there for me. By the way...I am just learning to use my copic pens, so this picture is my first attempt. I look forward to more practice. By the way I cut the flowers on my cricut using Sure Cuts Alot. If you are interested in the cutting file for the flowers, I got it from, she has some great svg files. Thanks Mary!! Also the girl is from Charmed Cards and

Wow the big 5 0...Yikes! Well my son convinced me that we had to have a Birthday Cake for my birthday. He has been bugging me about tasting fondant! We watch way too many Food Network shows and he keeps seeing fondant being rolled out and put on the cakes. So the day before my Birthday, we headed out to Kake Kreations in Canoga Park and bought their white cake mix, buttercream frosting mix, purple fondant and a couple of gum paste flowers. Well this is the first time that I have made a cake without eggs. The cake smelled amazing. We invited my sister and her daughter over to help finish the cake...good thing, we needed my sister to roll out the fondant, she is so much stronger than I am! Well we stayed up until midnight finishing the cake, but it was well worth it. The whole family loved it!!

First Card!

My Very First Card!!

Finally after having my cricut for more than a year, I finally finished my first card. I have made several things with my cricut...just not cards. We refinished my sister's cabinets in her bathroom and added vinyl to the cabinets to make them look new and updated. I have also done some glass etching, made a few vinyl signs, made a vinyl tinkerbell with a saying in a picture frame for my niece and tons more.

Anyway, here is the card I made for my best friend, Lisa! She and my other friend Tammy, bought me a Coach purse for my 50th bday. Wow what a gift, I still can't believe it!! I love my new purse and love my friends for thinking of me. Here is the thank card I sent Lisa
