My lost dog Mickey

My little baby Mickey has been lost for 2 weeks. I am so sad and worried. We had a cold rainy snow storm on Tuesday and my husband and I cried knowing Mickey was out in it and there was nothing we could do. We have been searching day and night and he is being seen but will only run away. He is so scared and lost. I pray everyday that he comes home or someone calls me from all the flyers we have posted so I can go get him. But no one calls...they just chase him away or call long after he is gone. We are so exhausted and need a lucky break to bring our little guy home. He is our family. I won't give up. I miss him so much :(

Teddy Bear Parade Valentines

Today is Valentine's Day and it was a hard day to craft. My dog has been lost for almost a week and I have been spending every extra minute trying to find him. My family is so heartbroken. I needed to get my mind off of the situation and felt like my kids needed me to focus on them so I decided to make a few cards.
I used the Teddy Bear Parade, Artiste, and Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridges. I saw this Elegant Edges cut on Mary's Cards TV video and knew I had to try it. I had ordered the K.Andrews Moustache stamps a while back and had this idea about using it with the bears. My daughter is in middle school and moustaches are all the rave! My younger son just loves to dress up and use the fake moustaches. I cut the cards from Elegant Edges at 3" and the bears at 2". I also used the heart from the Teddy Bear cartridge as well. I got the moustache from the Artiste cartridge and cut them at 1/4".
I will enter these in the following challenges:
Cardz  TV Kids Cards challenge - 
Bitten by the Bug 2 Heart or Cupid challenge-
Exploring Cricut "Be My Valentine" Challenge-
Fantabulous Cricut "Be My Valentine" Challenge-
Thanks so much for stopping by and if you could spare a prayer that my lost doggie comes home I would sure appreciate it.

Wild Card Heart Cards

I made some cards using the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge. I found this cut with a heart and thought it would work nicely for Valentine's Day.
I used a Studio G stamp that fit perfectly in the porthole and the small heart cuts are from the Doodlecharms cartridge. The red & white twine, that I love, is from the One Spot at Target of all places. It is the nice and thick and rich in color. It is better than my AC twine. I cut it at 5 1/2 inches and it will fit in an A2 envelope. But I did make the matching envelopes for fun. I stickled the hearts for sparkle.
I mixed and matched paper and tried ribbons along with heart bling on this one. I stickled and added some rich red glitter around the sentiment.  These are perfect for the Cardztv Color Challenge of only using Red, Black and White. Wouldn't it be awesome if I won! I love Mary's blog and watch all her videos. I would just love to win her stamps!

I tried buttons and some embossed silver metallic paper on this one. I went for a Stampendous birthday stamp seeings how you can never have too many birthday cards in your stash.

This one is my favorite. It is the same as the 1st one but I used some sparkly metallic paper for the big heart. I think this contrast worked the best.
So there you have it! A few cards for now.
