I used the Best Friends cart to print and cut the back ground plaid paper and the bird scene also. I put the blue plaid paper on the inside of the card also. I used a MS punch on the corners.

The 2" snowgirl is cut from the Snow Friends cart. The purse is cut from the Forever Young cart (as large as I could make it on a 12x12 piece of paper). I used double sided paper so the inside has a design as well.This is my Mom's tree. I had to include the piano, it is in memory of my brother who we lost a few years ago at the young age of 45 due to a VERY short battle with cancer (3 weeks!). He was a very gifted piano player.

I used scrap paper to make this baby card. It is actually Christmas paper (double sided). The baby is due at Christmas. The turtle is from CAC and I used the Imagine to create the pattern. The scallop is from the Imagine too.

I have to narrow my list to only 8 new blog-family followers that I could pass this award on to but I am having a hard time linking new followers to their blogs...so this award goes out to all of my new followers...please feel free to comment and leave me your blog address.
Thanks again Audrey, you ROCK!
During church this morning, we watched a video...it was about Hope, Peace, Joy and Love...and I knew immediately I had to create a frame with this message. I could only find a mat with 3 openings, so I left off Hope (at least for now).
I used my Gypsy for the first time tonight..."Peace" and "Joy" are from Gypsy Wanderings and "Love" is from the Sweethearts cart. The vinyl words are cut at 1.5". The background paper is K&Company (Secret Santa 12x12 Designer Paper Pad) - found at Michaels for $9.99.
The ornaments and tree are cut from the Imagine Snow Angle cart.

I made this card with my new Imagine cart, Snow Angel. I thought for days about which cart to buy. I finally decided on this one because I can use it a lot within the next few months.
The ribbon I used on this card was found at Michael's for 1.00. It was the inspiration for the blue on this card.
I used the Cuttlebug to dry emboss the background and stickles to add a little sparkle to the card.
On the inside of the card, I had the pot at the bottom left over from when I printed/cut the birds...when I put it at the bottom of the scalloped oval I thought it made it look like a tree so I added it to my card.
To accept this award, I must list 3 things that make me different and then pass it on to 5 additional bloggers.
1. I scrap a lot for my young kids
2. I have a wonderful husband who is my biggest fan
3. I like to watch football while I scrap
Now to pass this on to fellow bloggers...

I found this MS Punch at TJ Maxx for 3.99. I don't use a lot of punches but I thought for 4.00 it could be fun to play with tonight. Now, lets see if I can get motivated to create something! This punch is fitting today, it has finally gotten a little cold here - actually had some sleet for a little while. Let me know if you find any cool punches at a great price!

I really wish PC had better communication. I know a lot of people are having problems with the update and people are confused - was there an update today or not...???
I'm off to play with my Imagine and Paper Doll Dress Up, my son wants to decorate his bedroom door with some Halloween images.

How cute is this little guy on the stripe paper?
This is my scrap paper - I didn't realize I had to have the paper a certain size for the punch around the page - heeheee. She wanted to use this anyway. This is her first stamp and stamp pad. We found them at Michaels for 1.00 each. She had so much fun playing with scrappy stuff. I'm happy to have someone in the house who also likes to scrap.
She has already edited the puppy page and once it dries, I will post another picture of it. It's so cute!

I cut the pumpkins from the CAC cart using the Imagine. I chose the orange color using the Imagine Nursery Tails cart. The sizes are 1", 1.5" and 2". The shadows are the same size, just a different color (chosed from the Nursery Tail cart). Pumpkins are dry embossed using the CB.
I love this ribbon and wish I could find it by the roll. I love ribbon with texture and it is hard to find except in small packaging.
The white paper is 3.25" by 5". This was a test to see if I could figure out this new MS punch I bought at Michaels for $14.99. I usually don't buy punches, but wanted to try this. I have a circle punch, an edge punch, a corner rounder and now this MS Punch. It's ok, I like the look but I might go pick up one that is less decorative in addition to this one.

I made this just for fun. Fall break starts tomorrow so the homework load was lighter tonight and I got my work finished early, so I had a little time to play before bed time. I have to mention, my husband vaccumed the house today (without being asked-wow I know!!!!). WAAHHHOOOO!!!! Shout out to him - if he happens to read my post in the next few days. ♥ ya honey!

Card and Back of Envelope
I made this card and envelope using the Imagine More cart. The envelope is cut at 10" and the card at 7". The frame is cut at 2.8 and the frame insert is cut at 2.1. "Just Because" is cut at 2.9 real size.
I am loving the "Load Last" feature on the Imagine. I just found it tonight. It helps you all the paper you originally placed on the mat.
I originally made this card for my boss for Bosses Day, but since my calibration is not just right, I am going to make him something else.
I wanted to add ribbon to the bottom of the purse, but it didn't wrap around the purse neatly so I left it off.

I really like the Imagine. These are my very first cuts with my new Imagine. I started setting it up around 7:30pm and it is now 11:17pm and I am finished. The only thing I did not do is put a sentiment on the inside of this card.
I used the new Imagine carts..."Imagine More" and "Nursery Tails'.
I found pop dots very useful for adding the 3D effect.
Let me know what you think...
