Packages in the Mail

Super excited this week. I received the three cricut carts (Create a Critter, Celebrations, Preserves) that I ordered from ebay. There's alot on my wishlist but frankly I'm too cheap to pay alot. I also finally received my order from Joanns.com. I ordered DCWV - Stack 7, Citrus Stack and Citrus Cardstock. It took over a month to get here, must have travelled by boat. I think I might order from them again even though the delivery time was horrendous because the price was so nice, $9.99 on sale for each stack, which seems to me quite reasonable. I just won't order anything I need to have right now.
Now I need to figure out what to make!

Okay...well school began two weeks ago and with that I am back to work teaching so i haven't had much time to do anything but fall down dead. Add to that 6 days worth of soccer practice split between two kids, most days I don't get home until 9pm. Add to that we are in the process of creating a permanent crafting area, right now all crafting occurs on the dining table which is difficult and a pain. Anyhoo - my daughter has been invited to a birthday party at a waterpark here so I created this birthday card using the mermaid from Life's a Beach. Waves were embossed on the cuttlebug. Stickers were from Cloud 9 Designs. Turned out quite nice, if I do say so myself.

entering this card into the following challenges which were both anything goes.
