About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Tis the Season

A quick CAS Christmas card for the Addicted to CAS challenge, Glitter.

This is a 5x5 card. All papers are scrap. The fiber the star is hanging from is a fiber of burlap. The star was cut from the cricut and then scored at each point and manipulated into a 3D shape. I glued it into place with small dabs of hot glue. The sentiment is computer generated. I don't think that card took more than 20 minutes to make.

I think it turned out fabulously. Hope you like it too!



  1. I love your 3d star and that you have made a christmas card! Never too early! Your golden flourishes are lovely! Thanks so much for playing along at ATCAS xx

  2. The 3D star is great, love that he's hanging on a string like an ornament.
