Hoot 'N Holler

So, I love Owls! For a variety of reason! But they are just really fun! I used Create a Critter for the Owl and then My Pink Stampers stamp set for the sentiment!

What is your favorite animal to use on your cards?

Cupcake Card



I made this card a while back, but still wanted to share it! I think it's sooo cute! My birthday is coming up in a month and I am hoping to have 100 followers by March 18th, my birthday! If this happens, I will have a giveaway. What is your favorite thing about your birthday?!?!

Recipe:

Teal Cardstock
Polka Dot paper from Doodle Bug
Cupcake from Sweet Treats
Pink Ribbon


Happy Crafting and enjoy your day off work today, if you got it off!

Crafting for a Cause...

I am very passionate about the American Cancer Society! I hope we one day find a cure! Until then, I will keep raising funds for Relay For Life to help with research, education, advocacy, and patient services! If you want to find a local Relay For Life in your community click here!

All this being said, I want to decorate my fundraising bottle! A 20 oz. water bottle filled with dimes is $100!!! And that is $100 towards finding a cure for cancer!


So I hope you join in the fight against cancer! So many of us have been affected by this horrible disease! So CELEBRATE, REMEMBER, and FIGHT BACK! 


Happy Crafting,

Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop...

WYOMING!!!! Welcome to Wyoming, Forever West!



First some fun facts about this fun state I call home:
  • No state touches more other states than Wyoming.
  • The JCPenney stores were started in Kemmerer.
  • Wyoming was the first state to give women the right to vote.
  • Smallest town in the world is located in Buford, WY- Population 2! (halfway between Cheyenne and Laramie on I-80)
  • The University of Wyoming is the "highest" and has the "coolest" summers than any other Division 1 school in the US. It makes it tough for visiting athletes to compete at 7220 feet! GO POKES!

Famous For: Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, Old Faithful Geyser, Jackson Hole, Flaming Gorge, Cheyenne Frontier Days Celebration
Famous Wyomingites: James Bridger (trapper, guide), Dick Cheney (Vice President), Buffalo Bill Cody (scout), Curt Gowdy (sportscaster), Washakie (Shoshone Chief), James G. Watt (secretary of the Interior), Nellie Tayloe Ross (first woman elected governor)

Now for something fun from Wyoming:
This is a card I made using the 50 States Cartridge! It's Wyoming's flag!
