Happy Birthday Girly Card

I was looking on another blog.. (cannot for the life of me remember who though, sorry!) and viewed a card that looked kinda like this. Of course I had to add my own flair to it and this is what I came up with.

To make this card this is what you need:

A Child's Year Cartridge (page 73)
Black Cardstock
Blue Cardstock
White Cardstock
Light Brown Cardstock 
Happy Birthday Ribbon from Martha Stewart
Happy Birthday Stamp
Blue Gem for the dress
Martha Stewart Punch, Not sure of the name, sorry!
Pop Dots

Your finished card size will be 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
The Light Blue Mat size is 4" x 5 1/4"
The Patterned Paper Mat size is 3 3/4" x 5"
The Light Blue Mat size on the bottom is 1 1/2" x 3 3/4"
The Loop Punch Paper size is 1 1/4" x 3 3/4"
The Happy Birthday Stamp Mat is cut to fit.
It's approx. 1 1/2" x 1 1/4"
I cut out the doll in the dress at size 3 3/4" in the Blue Cardstock
Then I cut out the doll again using the Shadow Feature in 3 3/4" in White Cardstock.
Use the Light Brown Cardstock and adhere it to the back of the Blue dress where the bows are punched out by the cricut.
See picture.
Use Pop Dots for the Doll in the Dress
Add Happy Birthday Ribbon and Blue Gem for the Dress

So that's the card for this morning. I am working on another card so hopefully it will get posted sometime today or tonight. Thanks for looking and if you are not a follower already please sign up.

Thank You All!!!

I wanted to thank all of you new followers for joining my blog! It really means alot to me. We are going to have alot of fun here. Lots of giveaways, lots of contests and lots of fun! If there is anything that you want me to put on here just let me know and I will do my very best to get that for you. I started working on a new card late last night. I did not get to finish it because I was gone all day with my 2 kids as they had a film project that they were involved in (thank's again Amy & Eric).  I started it as soon as I got home which was around 10:30 pm or so. We were all dead tired so I did not get to finish it. Some time today I will finish it and post it with the directions on how to make it.  Thank's again for being a new Terri Tv follower. I want this blog to be a place that you can come to for inspiration, ideas and just plain fun. Talk to you soon. Terri

Halloween Treat Bags.. CUTE!!!

Today has been very busy for me. I wanted to make a few cards but did not get a chance to. I was out getting my 11 year old son Casey's halloween costume. Anyhow, I was thinking about what type of treat bags I was going to make for Casey and my 9 year old daughter Hallie's school class.  Every holiday I always make treat bags but wanted something a little different and cuter.
I came up with this. I used Martha Stewarts Drippy Goo punch for the edge of this tag that says Happy Halloween. 
 I thought they turned out really cute. Now I only have to make 60 I hope this gave you some idea on how you want to make your child's treat bags. Maybe you don't have kids and you just want to make goodie bags to pass out on halloween. This would be adorable. Oh, the little clear bags I got at Walmart. They were so cheap, only $2.00 for 100 of them..I think it is 100. Anyhow, they are super cheap but there is so much you can do with them. I would LOVE to see your finished treat bags. Leave me a comment and tell me where I can go to see them and I will leave you a comment back.
Thank you for looking and come back soon.
