Last three Hello Thursday projects....

Hello, friends!!

I am so sorry this is going up late! I spent my evening in the ER with my husband. He has a stomach bug and while he was in the bathroom yesterday he passed out and hit his head on the faucet in the bathtub. This resulted in a huge gash on his forehead and 9 stitches. He is ok and everything now, but it was rather scary at the time.

Ok, now there seems to be a lot of confusion about if these cartridges will be on sale at Walmart along with the other lites. I do not have a solid answer for you. I would imagine they would be though. Speaking of Imagine, several people were confused on if I used the Imagine to make my cards I posted on Friday. I did not. I will be very clear when I use the Imagine, so if I say nothing about the Imagine my projects were made using the Expression. I appreciate the fact that you thought my stamping was so good it looked printed! Wow that is a huge compliment!! 

So, today I posting my last three projects which are made using Cupcake, Zoo Day, and Jolly Holidays!

Jolly Holidays

I used papertrey Ink paper and SU! ribbon.
'Happy Holidays' was cut at 1 3/4" and the ornament was cut at 4".




Zoo Day

I used SU! polka dotted paper and I hand stamped the snowflakes on cream card stock to create the other patterned paper.
I cut 'cool' at 2" and 'super' at 1".

Cupcake

I used My Mind's Eye paper and Papertrey Ink ribbon.
I cut the cupcake at 2 1/2", 'sweetie' at 1 /4", and 'u' and 'r' at 1 1/2"
Now don't forget about my Pink Expression giveaway!! All you have to do is leave comments on all three of my Hello Thursday posts(Thursday, Friday, and today) and follow my blog either via email, through blogger, or google reader. I will draw my winner on Wednesday!!



See you back here tomorrow with extra projects I made using the new cartridges!!!

Have a wonderful week!!

Hi Melanie!!
Talk about "Super Cool"!! Your cards are gorgeous! I have to make so many cards & gifts this year & my "E" wasn't feeling well, so he had to go back to PC. I can't STAND it! Keep the ideas comin', 'cause when I have an "E" back (or wishful thinking--a PINK ONE!), I'll be steam-rolling thru my craft room! Watch Out!!
Thanks for the chance & for all you do for us!
Hugs from R.I.,

HappyExpressions said...

I am unable to see the cards, they have red x on them. Your projects are always winners so I am sure these are winners too.

Kristin said...

I love the Super Cool card! And for your husband's gash - vitamin E oil along with a microderm abrasian (i recommend the Mary Kay set - a bit pricey at $40) but the combination helps eliminate scarring. I know this from experience - 4 stitches on my forehead after slipping on ice! Happy Turkey Day!

Tamra said...

All of these are really festive. I can't wait to try my hand at them!

mekei said...

ok, something like that happened to my son. i forgot the name but you can black out when you are straining so much. he cracked his chin and broke the toilet. all in the middle of the night. and i'm the only one who heard him and got up. he staggers out. thinks i'll grab him - i'm 5' and he's like 10" taller minimum. he goes to lean on me and luckily in his stupor he went backwards and not forwards (squash) and so went fell on him. yeah, that was fun.

Very cute cards for this post. I can't decide which of the new carts I NEED to have next, but seeing them in use is definitely helpful!

Hope your hubby is feeling better.

I saw another comment on here that asked for a lesson on tying bows, and I agree that would be helpful. I can't tie a nice bow to save my life! haha.
