Tilda Criss Cross card

Hello!  Thanks for stopping in to visit!  Today I want to show you the criss cross card I made for my friend Gayle on the cricut mb.  It is for the monthly Magnolia swap that Jess is hosting.  Our project this month was the criss cross card and a gift pouch inside.  I have never made a criss cross card, but was suprised at how easy they are!   Of course we have to use at least one Magnolia Tilda image on the card.  Since we send a new Tilda stamp to our partner, I decided to make my pouch to hold the stamp. My blue papers are from  DCWV  "the Stack4" and the sand paper I picked up at JoAnns  think.  The tiny shells I got at JoAnn's too.  They are Blue Moon Beads. The white ric-rac was in my stash.  I have colored the Tilda image with my copics  XPress-it cardstock.  I used my cricut to cut out the sun from yellow cardstock in my stash for the gift pouch.   My card doesn't open, not sure if they are spose to.  Mine is being used like a big envelope for the gift pouch.  Gayle wanted a beachy theme and this is what I came up with for her. 

Here is the gift pouch out of the card...

Come back soon, and HAPPY CRAFTIN!

Date Night can

Hello!  Thanks for coming by my blog today!  Pull up a chair and a glass of tea and grab one of those chocolate chip cookies I just took out of the oven. I'll be serving them to a group of quilters tomorrow, so don't eat them all though!
I am also helping ( a little) with a bridal shower on Sunday.  I was ask to make the can for DATE NIGHT for the future bride and groom.  They will pass out slips of paper to each person to write a suggestion for them to do on a 'date night' and the slips of paper will all be put in the can.  Whenever they have time for a date night they will pull one out with a suggestion of something to do!!  I used the 'Life's a Beach' Cricut cartridge for the cut-outs and letters.  The can and ribbons I bought at Michael's last week.  The whole wedding and everything is a Beach theme so I think this will go well with it! 
Let me know what you think, and take your time and browse around while you are here.
Stop back by soon, and please feed my fish before you leave!
Happy Craftin!
