Dare To Dream

 This card was made using my Cricut and a punch.  I added gems and called it good.  The image is from The Paper Shelter it's called When Pigs Fly.  I added some sparkle to the pigs wings using a glitter pen from CTMH.

Rainbow Bridge

 My mom lost her dog this last week.  He was a very active black lab named Zip; (personally, I couldn't stand him all that much, he wasn't trained very well to heel or not to jump on people) But, she loved him and he has been with her through a lot of rough times.  He was just getting old and was always in a lot of pain.  She waited a long time before she could get up the courage to put him down.  Mom's favorite color is yellow, so of course I had to use yellow.  I made this card for her using one of the sketches from Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Cupcake Birthday Step Card

 I made this card this morning, just for the heck of it.  LOL  I used the cupcake from the Celebration Series #M2FCEA - Cupcake using my Cricut.  I used the Cricut for the sentiment as well.  The card base and layers were created by me a while back, also using my Cricut.

Big Sloppy Wet Kiss

 I had a friend over for her birthday this last weekend.  She isn't super social so no party or group of people...just me.  I did take her out for a birthday shot at a local bar, but we didn't stay long.  LOL  Because she knows I'm sort of a dork (and because I'm 5 yrs older than her) I decided to make her a funny old lady card.

For this card I used an image from Polka Doodle called Revolting Kiss.  I digitally colored her using Paint 3D.  I also created my own sentiment.  The only "extra" I did with this one is to add some Glossy Accents onto her glasses, to give them the thickness they needed. I kept it very CAS since I also know my friend isn't someone who saves her cards.

Caught With Your Skirt Up

 I've been wanting to make something with this images for a while now.  I finally did it!  I'm not sure if you know this or not, but Polka Doddle has some fun crazy images, not just the cute adorable ones they're known for!!  This one is called Embarassing Moment, it is part of the Funny Old Bag group of sentiments and images (the seniments come with the images).  The shopping cart is from a bundle I'd purchased a while back from Polka Doodles called Top Banana Celebrations (I think...?).  I added some flowers, gems and twine.  I digitally colored the funny old bag using Paint 3D.
