Inchworm Hello

"Lucky 13" in my challenge features this adorable inchworm from Nate's ABC's. I love this die cut, and its colors naturally coordinate with the colors of this great plaid. Pull out Nate's ABC's and look at all the super cuts there. Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear your comments.

Lovebirds Congratulations

After a few days' lapse, I'm back with part 12 of my challenge. This card, done in soft green and pink, features 2 "lovey doveys." The card is a 5 x 5" square. One of the green papers is shimmer paper. The pink is fabric. I used Kraft paper for the brown cage and white for the doves, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug herringbone folder. I used Martha Stewart's loop punch for the edges. This love-themed card would be perfect for anniversary or wedding occasions. Enjoy both the picture and the video. I love comments.
I'm entering this in three challenges: Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday: Fabrics, Dynamic Duos, and CAS-ual Fridays.

"Feeling So Sheepish" Belated Birthday Card

Well, I've done it again. I've missed someone's birthday. So, for the 11th installment of my challenge, I used Winter Frolic to create another belated birthday card. The sheep on this card are so cute. Hope you enjoy it. Please leave a comment.

The video--Turquoise, Navy, and Lime Birthday Card

Here's the how-to for the "Turquoise ..." card. Part 10 of my challenge features Elegant Edges (I couldn't skip it), and uses the layout from Freshly Made Sketches." Try your hand at this method of using chalks. I think you'll like it. Thanks for your views and comments.

Happy Birthday in Navy, Turquoise, and Lime

This is my entry for the Casual Fridays challenge.  The flowers are stamped in white, then chalked over the white to help them stand out from the navy. Elegant Edges cut the frame and shadow. I also stamped the border print. Cuttlebug Swiss dots give texture to the mat and border. The sentiment is computer generated, cut with a window punch and place on ribbon and a mat. I really like this color combination, although I have to admit, I was skeptical.

"Soccer, Basketball, and Football" Birthday Card, the Video

It's part 9 of the challenge. This time I've used Sports Mania which has some really clever cuts on it. I choose to use soccer, basketball, and football, but there are many to choose from. Pull out your cartridge and see what you can create for the sports enthusiast in your life.

"Soccer, Basketball, and Football" Birthday Card

My entry for the Dynamic Duos #13 monochromatic challenge features a soccer ball, basketball and football in a masculine birthday card. The balls and the penant are cut from the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge. I think a sports enthusiast would appreciate this card.
