Grad svg file

Here's the free grad svg file. Enjoy!

Father's Day & Graduation cards

Got these cards done quickly as I'm leaving for Roswell, NM to see my dad for Father's Day. It's a surprise! Sent him this card with the notation "hope it's memorable" Can't wait to see his face when he sees me pull up in the motor home!
Also made this grad card with my own SCAL design. I got tired of cards with caps and decided to make a more feminine flair for a friend's daughter.
Hope to make some alien SB pages when I get back! Hmmmmm? LOL. I'm having too much fun with my Cricut.

New card - old friend moving away

This card created with my own design, double lace paper ribbon on SCAL, computer generated words, the purse from Mickey & Friends, 4 layers of cs instead of chipboard, and cuttlebug and gems on the purse. Oh, yeah, the glitter is actually purple, but shows blue here.
An old girlfriend is moving far away. Couldn't find sentiments to fit this situation and I remembered an email someone sent me on Mother's Day about the women in your life, and it seemed to fit exactly! A lot happens in a long friendship as ours; she's on husband #4, I had two babies that are now teens and coming up on adulthood real quick ;o). It's been an interesting journey between the two of us. I'll so miss her.
The inside didn't photo very well. Here's the verse:
Time passes, life happens, distance separates, children grow up, jobs come and go, love waxes and wanes, men come and go, hearts break, careers end, but girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you. A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach. When you have to walk that lonesome valley, and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.
Sometimes they will even break the rules and walk beside you, or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends are always just a phone call away!
Now to get my graduation card done! TFL

Cuttlebug challenge & Cuttlebut spot challenge card

Gosh, this weekend has been very time consuming. I finally got my CB. Yeah!!!!! And I got 40% off at M's. Only had to wait a week because they were out of stock but I finally got one. So I've been very busy creating this card for the Mother's Day Cuttlebug Challenge, Be Inspired #29 here:
Also see the Cuttlebugspot Mother's Day Card Challenge #29. Deadline is Saturday, March 9, 2009. There's some beautiful cards here for inspiration.
My first SCAL, CB, and for that matter Cricut card!!! Oh, well, we have to start somewhere, don't we? And since I used my SCAL for the first time, I also downloaded Design Studio to upgrade my firmware. So it's been very time consuming, but here it is! Enjoy!
Now that I'm up and running, so to speak, I'll post some freebies tomorrow.

Inkskape and SCAL

Spring break and both boys are gone for the week, so looks like I have plenty of play time. Ya-hoo! I'm a proud owner of a Cricut Create and learning so much so soon. I downloaded Inkscape and been playing with it with great success. Next step is SCAL. It's a gotta have and seems so easy to create files. Never mind the Wishblade I had for years and couldn't figure out, couldn't get it loaded, unloaded, working right. Hope to have some of my own free SVG files up soon. So keep coming back. Hope you get a chance to check out the blog candy. Yummy, huh? Post on her site and link to yours and you're entered.
