Published in Cricut Magazine May 2012! Yippee!!

If you happened to pick up a copy of the Cricut Card Magazine (May 2012) you might have seen my “thanks a bunch” card !   I was so pleased to have it published in this issue!   I feel like celebrating, so I thought I’d offer you all an image that I made the other day.  It’s an ocean landscape scene, from a photograph I took in Jamaica, it’s a simple rendition, but I hope you like it! Click  HERE FOR FREE DOWNLOADABLE .jpg OR HERE FOR the .png (no background) image I’d love to see what you do with the image if you download it!  Just leave me a link in a comment if you’d like to share it with me.  The usual rule apply, feel free to use the image for personal use and small craft  for hire, but please don’t redistribute the image, just send your friends here to downlaod it for themselves, and if you could link the image back to A Creative Need it would be much appreciated.   …

Butterfly Kisses

Hi everyone!   After spending the day sick in bed, I finally felt well enough to have a bowl of soup which I managed to keep down, thankfully!  The boys spent the afternoon at a friends house, as I was in no shape to look after them.  My husband was working and could not get away, so I had to fend for myself.   I must say I wished someone would have been here to look out for me, like I do for everyone when they’re sick!  Oh, well enough of the poor me stuff…   I’m sure I’ll be better tomorrow, as I was feeling well enough by this evening.  I even managed to finish off this card I started yesterday. I think this digi image from Squigglefly is just so precious, don’t you?  Angela Donato is the artist behind this image called “Hugs”, and you can find it HERE. I used lilac cardstock for the mat and base.  I cannot say what the dp is as it was a gift from Rosana, my sweet blogging friend! …

Fabulous Darling!

I tried something a little different with my cricut for this card.  Of course everyone knows you can cut some fabulous shapes with the Cricut expression, but you can also “draw” those same images too!  All you need is a simple little attachment that replaces the normal blade, and  insert a mini gel pen.  I used a standard Staples mini gel pen in red.  The attachment is available at Custom Crops. I used the Forever Young cartridge for the image. Papers: Cosmo Cricket Material Girl, Kraft card stock Accessories: oval punch Stampin’ Up!  Cricut expression, Forever Young cartridge, embroidery thread, gel pen holder, gel pen Deena

Need a Vacation?

I do!  I will soon be swimming in the Caribbean and sooooo looking forward to it!!  We’re all going to Jamaica! Today’s card reflects how I’m longing to be there already!  My son André  had a research project and oral presentation to do just before Christmas, and he decided to do his on Jamaica so he could learn about where we were going (besides it being a lovely vacation spot).   We were SO proud to find out today that he aced it!!   100%!!  Talk about a confidence booster!  He was just beaming!!  André, you are officially hired to be our guide while we’re there! 🙂 I made this a 5″ x 7″ large card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday FTTC101!

CAS Silhouette

This took me less than 10 minutes to make! I love quick and easy cards… This sweet silhouette is cut at 2 1/4″ from A CHILD’S YEAR cartridge, with the cricut.  The top portion of the card is embossed with the “With Love” cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used my Scor-Pal to score two lines above and below the embossing. The sentiment  is from Bonnidee stamps “French Wording”, it simply means Happy Birthday.  It’s stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink.  Memento inks rock by the way! Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Keep it simple,  and have a great day! Deena  

Christmas Cheer!

Only a little over 5 weeks to go before Christmas and this is  my first Christmas card for the year!!  I have to get busy don’t I?? This week’s Crafty Creations Challenge inspired me to make this Holiday card using a festive image from Flourishes.  The challenge is making cards with beautiful insides, set by Jaime.   I don’t normally decorate the inside of my cards, so this was a great challenge for me to change things  up a bit! The snowflakes are cut using Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge and I’ve added some dew drops to their centers.  I’ve sprayed the snowflakes and the image with tsukineko shimmer spritz for some holiday sparkle! Papers: Bobunny Midnight Frost dp, white cs, rich razzleberry I followed the sketch for the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge and made it a Christmas card with an image from Flourishes’  Sweets of the Season set for their Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Thanks for stopping by! Deena

Tulip Trevor

I forgot to upload this sweet C.S designs card and thought I’d share it tonight!  It is a Featured Stamper CASE of Stephanie’s card. I used a C.C Designs image and added a die cut from my Walk In my Garden Cricut cartridge. The potted blooms and the background shaped panel are cut with the Cricut. “Tulip Trevor” by C.C designs is hand cut and colored with copics.  I also pierced the corners and the flower pot.  The dp is Basic Grey Marrakech. I will be posting a fantabulous GIVEAWAY by the end of the week, so please check back! Thanks so much for stopping by !! You know I love your company!! 😉
