I just finished putting Meghan's Easter basket together for tomorrow morning. I made the tag using Birthday Bash for the scallop circle tag and Noah's ABC Animals for the rabbit. The stamp set sentiment is from K Andrew Designs.

It feels like there is no time in between St Patrick's Day and Easter this year. I just sent out some St Patrick's Day cards and Easter is already this weekend. Oh well, at least I will get a few Easter cards done to send out.
I used the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge to make this sweet bunny bear. The sentiment is from Mary at CardzTV. I used some Crystal Effects on the bears nose. I used a Copic light pink marker to go around the bunny outfit to ad some definition. The egg paper is from a BIG DCWV paper pack I got recently. It has awesome papers for every major holiday throughout the year.

I LOVE my Teddy Bear Parade Cricut cartridge. I also love to have teddy bears on hand so all I have to do is cut out the clothes. I cut these bears at 3.5 on my Gypsy because I could fit the most bears on an 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock. I'm planning on making some fun Easter cards with some of these.
Thanks for hopping along with us today. If you haven't stopped by before, my name is Julie. I'm a working mom of one 3 year old girl named Meghan. I LOVE all sorts of crafts, but I'm pretty addicted to my Cricut and card making. Make sure to become a follower of my blog in order to be eliglbe for any blog candy.

We're having a sleep over with my niece this weekend for her birthday. Meghan is SO excited. We're planning on watching Monsters Inc together. I cut these characters at 10" using the Best of Pixar Cricut cartridge. I later decided to laminate them so they don't get torn apart in five minutes. I hot glued tongue depressors to the backs so the girls can play with them like puppets.
I bought a $1 foam board and turned it into Boo's door. I glued a pocket on the back to keep the puppets in.

My dad requested a dozen bright yellow duct tape rose pens. His favorite band, The Jive Aces, will be coming back to the states soon and he wants to hand them out at their concert. I made a duct tape suit jacket for a bear to match the ones the band wears. This was for my dad's birthday. I am contemplating redoing his birthday card to make a yellow suit card.
I found out that the Duct tape factory is in Avon Ohio which isn't too far from my area. We may have to plan a special trip to get a tour and see all the fun stuff they make using duct tape.
I wrapped a foam wreath with some green fuzzy yarn that I had in my stash. I've made a LOT of these crocheted flowers so I had plenty to glue to my wreath. I glued the buttons to the flower centers and added some of my beaded stick pins....still have a LOT of those in my stash too. I cut the bumble bees from the Pooh and Friends cartridge and added some Stickles to their wings. Loving my new Spring wreath.

I welded a balloon from Create a Critter to Mike from Monsters Inc...found on The Best of Pixar cartridge. I used some green and white Darice bakers twine as the string on the balloon. My niece is turning 3 years old this week and this is her special birthday card. Monsters Inc is one of her favorite movies. The sentiment is from Mary at CardzTV.
I created the door using George and Basic Shapes. The flowers are from George as well.

If you haven't followed me for very long, I also manage www.scraphappypapercrafter.com where I offer lots of free digital stamps. Here are some fun St. Patrick's Day cards that I've been working on for Meghan's teachers. I used Mary's new stamp set from CardzTv.
My husband is planning his brothers bachelor party, so he had me help with the invites and a mock tombstone to mourn the loss of bachelorhood. ;-)
I used the Happy Hauntings cartridge to make the tombstones. On the large one I used Birthday Bash for the font. I just hand wrote bachelorhood on the small ones and drew some cracks on the tombstones. I inked the cards up with Tim Holtz Tea Die Distress Ink. The cloud stamp is from Close To My Heart. www.thecricutchirp.ctmh.com

My daughter's bathroom has had an Elmo theme since she was a baby. Now that she is 3 and a half I decided it was about time to get rid of Elmo and do something different. Meghan is really into Hello Kitty at the moment, but I don't have that hard to find cartridge, so I decided to make due with what I have. I used Create a Critter 2 for the cat, but you can also find it on Create a Critter. I removed the nose and whiskers with my gypsy and replaced it with an oval from George and Basic Shapes, welding the images together. Then I cut out another oval a quarter inch smaller for the pink nose. She really does look a lot like Hello Kitty, who has three whiskers instead of two. Hello kitty also has a black line all around, her so I had to ad the blackout shadow as well. I cut the outfits from Teddy Bear Parade. I LOVE how the bow holder turned out. I am a little hooked on making my daughter hair bows. She never goes to preschool without wearing one. I embossed the mermaid fin with my Cuttlebug and it looks so awesome in person. I used the grass folder and another that looks like reptile scales.
