Man Card week!

This is a busy birthday week – 4 birthdays….(and a bridal shower)….

And 3 guy cards, which I usually dread!  Here’s my first card:
I used smiley cricut cartridge, lots of stickles, and a stampin up border punch (first time to use it) and cuttlebug!  I think it looks cuter in real life than the picture…
Ok, it’s late, so that’s all for tonight!

Scrapbook Expo

I went to my first scrapbook expo today!  It was pretty cool… Tons of stuff to look at… I tried to be good!
I got some cool stuff (have to wait for some of it to be delivered; so you’ll see it once I get it)….
I want to share something I got.  For those of you who know me, you know I’m not the most organized person! πŸ™‚  I have tons of ribbon, and it’s been chaos for a long time.  My dad made me a cool thing to store the ribbon that was on spools; but I had gotten a lot more since then, and it was full, and there was loose ribbon that wasn’t on a spool, and was being stored loose in a drawer organizer, which I found quite annoying…..
I bought the Best Spool & Store ribbon organizer.  It has plastic cases for the ribbon, and has a little winder for the ribbon.  So the mess of ribbons in the box is now organized, and I could even take it with me somewhere..  It was really easy to do, while I sat on the couch watching TV.  I have the BEST drawers for my stamps; they’re expensive, but I love them.  I definitely think they do a good job on their products.
I also updated my Gypsy tonight; and have started working on some designs – have a bunch of cards I need to get done tomorrow…..  Hope you have a great Sunday!

Here’s the holder, and the mess of ribbon…
Here’s the winder thingy.
Here’s the caddy with the ribbon in it


I created a button for my blog!  See the right side of the blog and you can grab the button for your blog too!

App is updated!!! Welcome new designers!!!!

Welcome to all the new designers (and of course to the ones who have been there from the start!)…
The app is updated.  YAY!!!   I just checked the App Store, and it is updated.  You can go to the app store on your iphone (or ipad or ipod touch) and tap updates.  It should show up as an update, tap it, it will say free (since you’ve already paid for it) and install.  Enter your password & tap ok.  It will take a minute to upload, and it will be there!  Have fun with it!!! There are lots of great new features.  I hope you like it! (you can still update it if you followed the instructions I had posted previously on Facebook)…

In other news, Operation Write Home is having a blog hop.  Crafty Card Gallery (this blog) will be participating….
On November 13th Operation Write Home will be hosting a “BE MY VALENTINE” Bloghop! The theme for the cards will be Valentines; so even if you’re not a blogger, come get some inspiration! Many of the blogs will be hosting challenges, offering blog candy, or providing fun tutorials. Get signed up today – or come to the Stars and Stamps blog on Saturday November 13th! 
Sandy (President of Operation Write Home) is a designer in the app – let’s show her some support!  You can sign up your blog here.

No card pictures today… I think the new app will give you plenty to look at!!! πŸ™‚
Have a great Tuesday!

New design

I found a cute new blog design on “The Cutest Blog on the Block”.  It was super easy to put in… So easy I may have to change it seasonally! πŸ™‚  Unfortunately, if you’re viewing the blog from the app, you won’t get to see how cute it is (you may just have to go to your computer!)….

Your photo for today is a cute Hello Kitty birthday card that I made for my niece….
I love Hello Kitty!  I used to love it as a kid & now I love to make cards with the Cricut Cartridge.  We also made a Hello Kitty Cupcake Cake.  It was very cute!
Hope you had a nice Halloween!
