I'm finally back in the swing of things and somewhat got my mojo back. I was getting worried! All this equipment and toys and couldn't think of a thing to play with! Well I'm sure glad I got something back, not sure if its mojo!! I actually did 2 projects today! Woohoo! I can do a lot when I don't sleep!

So here's my blinging shape!
 This is a "bonus" purse shape card on Imagine's Better Together. I had made a bracelet for a friend's 18 year old granddaughter and I hadn't seen her yet so I used it as a prop for more "bling"! The flower that I added to the bag and the high heel on the bracelet (which I created with shrinky dinks!) is also from Better Together, also bonuses! The butterfly is from Lori's Garden. I "stickled" it up with red and green and added the bling to the closure on the card, posing as a handbag! This is printed at 8", but it would make a great gift card holder as well!
Thanks for looking and stopping by! Don't forget to come back for the "getting ready for valentine's day" blog hop! I am putting the finishing touches on that and deciding on blog candy choices!! This valentine card for my valentine is very hard because my husband is not the mushy type. He's totally into cars and his Harley. So...not much on cricut to work with, but I think I found something with Imagine and cricut that I hope he will like and give you some inspiration, as well!!  See you again in a few days!  have a fabulous evening!
