Happy Birthday Star Card

So I finally just gave up and bought the upgraded plan for my blog pictures.  Hopefully there will be no more hiccups!  I have tried to upload this picture so many times it's not even funny.  I am starting to get sick of it, and that's to bad because it is a cute card!
This was made with the Country Fair cart and is kind of like a gate fold card.  The star is on pop dots and just glued to one side so it can open.

I tried to post  some pictures today and apparently I have used all my space up, so I am trying to figure this out.  Has this happened to any of you?  Did you have to buy more space?  I don't want to have to pay 2.49 a month, I know that's not much but if there is another way.  If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you!  Thanks so much, Gwen

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!

Today is my baby girls birthday, I can't believe the baby is 17!!  Where did the time go and how did she get so grown up?  This is the card and gift bag I made for her.  They are cut files from Svgcuts.  The twine on the card and the bag is Posy from My Craft Spot.  The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set from My Craft Spot.  The brown squares on the front of the bag were embossed with the cuttlebug.   I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Something To Crow About Card

This is a step card, actually it is the very first one I made.  I was surprised at how easy it was, I have made a few since this one and I love the look of them.  The rooster on here is from the Home Decor cart and the sentiment is off the computer.  The edges are inked.

Owl Box

I love this little box I think it is so fun!  It is of course an svgcuts file and much easier to do than it looks.  The tag was made using the Tiny Doilies metal dies and the Stampin Around Fall stamp set from My Craft Spot.  The Brown jute string is also from My Craft Spot, I am really loving these jute strings, they tie so nicely and are such a fun look!  The paper is Simple Stories and American Crafts, the edges are inked.

Let's talk Turkey box

This fun little box is an svgcuts file, have I mentioned how much I love their files?!   The cute sentiment is from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set from My Craft Spot.  I thought it fit perfectly with this funny little turkey.   The tag was hand cut and I used Natural Jute string also from My Craft Spot.   The paper is DCWV Autumn Melody stack and American Crafts for the card stock.  I inked all the edges   and glued down the feathers, the turkey body is on 1 layer of foam tape, the head on 2 layers and the feet on 1 layer.  I hope you have a wonderful week and especially Thanksgiving!!

I am entering this over at Cameo Creations here.

Pocket card

I made this card awhile back and just didn't get it posted yet, mainly because I went a little crazy with all the Halloween stuff!!  Anyway this was made without the use of a cutting machine, shocking I know!  The sentiment and the pocket were printed off the computer and had cut.  Just some folding and gluing and there you have it.  I made this with my friend Sue in one of her classes.

Thank You Card

Okay I know I haven't shown anything made with the Cricut for awhile now, I have just been enjoying my Silhouette so much that that is all I use.  So this card was made using a Digital file from CCR, I made it a long time ago, it was in August when the CCR files were free for the month.
