Cricut MB Connection?????

Is anyone else not being able to connect to the Cricut MB??? C'mon! Mandy is posting the SU! retirement list any minute and I can't get on!!!

Cricut MB May Team Challenge

Here is the card that I created for the May Team Challenge. This month I was on Team 2 "Buggin Bouquets". The challenge was to use any Cricut flower cut. I'm excited to see what everyone has created from both teams! Today is the last day for everyone to post, then you all get to vote for which team you think collectively did the best job. May the best team win!
Home Decor was used for the flowers cut a various sizes. The small circles are made from SU punches. The larger circles were cut from a cart (I think it was WC, but I'm not sure.)

Inspiration Card

FINALLY! I have my first card posted! When planning out my blog, I downloaded a picture of a sunflower to put on my blog. Well, it never made it, but I still loved the picture. It inspired me to make this card to celebrate my blog! After the fact, I realized that I think it fits the 3rd card challenge that Kathy posted this week for Okie's Card Sketch Challenge. If I remember correctly, I needed 2+ colors (check), 2 Cricut cuts (check: SB flower and shadow), Embellishment (check: Stickles), a stamped image (check: sentiment). If there was any other requirements, then I may not have made it! LOL!
Thank you SO MUCH Jeannie for helping me to get this posting finally up!!! You're the best!

Rough day at the beach.

Just back at the beach...should've been relaxing, but ended up having to leave early. My husband and older daughter (5 1/2) were in the water. Mike was swimming up to Kaena and when he popped up he konked her right in the mouth. Now she's got 2 bloody front teeth. Thank goodness they are still her baby teeth. She just lost her first tooth (on the bottom) on Thursday. She'll be toothless within a week. Sheesh!

Learning Curve!!

I can't for the life of me post a picture of my card that isn't the size of an elephant!!!!!!! HELP!!!

My First Day

On a Saturday morning, I could not sleep in! All I could think about was getting this blog set up. My mind is a little more at ease since I have now changed my background. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but I am getting somewhere!
