365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

As you hop along today you will see cards created with Xander, the first in a new series to be released called “From the Xander Zone”.  He is available with a donation to Betty’s family.  Christian will be undergoing Surgery next week to remove his tonsils and then the thrice weekly Therapy will begin on the tumor.  His therapy could last for many months.
There is also  a contest running through October 16th and Christian will pick a random winner who will receive the whole collection!  The details on the contest are at the SBS blog.

For my card I made especially for Christian I hope he doesn't think it's too girly LOL! I used the "Kiss Me Betty" stamp and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. I used Crafty Sprouts MONSTER KISSES stamp set for the sentiment and embosssed the white paper in my Cuttlebug and did some inking with my Distress ink. You can purchase this adorable stamp I used for today's project HERE

Christian you are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you have a fast and speedy recovery! i'm pulling for you!!!!
From here please hop over to ……
