Wedding Favors using Cricut Cartridge

Hey Y'all,   
     I got to do more blogging say Mema!!!! So, I thought I might show my favorite folk my latest little project.  I did some really quick but quite cute wedding shower favors for a co-worker.  The wedding shower had a tropical theme, so she wanted the blues, greens, etc.  I took a look at tropical picture and I saw blues, greens, yellows, and oranges; hence my colour scheme.  It looked a little rainbowish when they are all uniformed but if you mix the colours up they look tropicalish.  Unfortunately, I did not get photo of them all mixed up together (oops, sorry).  I filled the favors with LifeSavers tropical blend candies (how fitting). I used some JoAnn's papers-Candy Shop and Minty Fresh.  The white cardstock is Michaels and let me just say and nice and sturdy.  It worked out perfectly for the wedding favors.  The ribbon is from JoAnn's. I used sheer ribbon with colours that match the paper.  The Cricut cart was "Tie the Knot".  Enough of my chitter-chatter, below is a picture of the finished favors.  Dang too bad I  can't find a challenge to put these in!  Never-U-Mind the mess in the back, that is the sign of an artist at work (lol).

See y'all later, off to create more magic in the stamp lab,  Joyce

Mojo Coming Back

Good Morning Party People!  Whoo! it has been a little while since I've blogged; my apologies.  I've been having my own personal CHA look see.  I went to look in all my favorite online and physical stores to see what goodies I might need to purchase for up coming projects.  So far, I have purchase goob-gobbs more Nesties and drum roll please (Blllllllllll) I finally got a Grand Calibur!!!!!!-watch out now!  Hmmm... let's see what else? Oh yeah, I've been  recovering from Mardi Gras in New Orleans-OMGosh, lawdy, lawdy! Now, I am currently recovering from a sinus infection gone south down to the chest, glad it almost gone.   And for some AWESOME news- I have been recommended and selected for my first DT! 
Thank you to Mema, Chana, and RJ for the exciting opportunity.  Of course, now I know I've got to really put the pedal to the metal!  The site blog is being created as we speak, I will wait to reveal the name until after the go live, so stay tuned; we have some pretty talented folks on the team.  Okay, with that being said, I'm back in my stamp lab and ready to get it going.  I thoutht I would switch it up a bit and use one of my cricut machines.  One of my favorite times of the year or my favorite holidays is Easter.  He is risen and everything comes to life with the beginning of Spring. Because it is Easter, my creation had to be elegant but had to say a lot softly.  I hope you enjoy the card, details below.
