Criss Cross Card

The challenge this fortnight at Dragonfly Challenges is "Criss Cross Card".  For my card I used images from Create With TLC.  I added some twine, stapled onto the slide out part of the card.  I used a fun die to go across and some round dies for the front.

Spring Flowers

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "No more than 3 colors, excluding black & white".  We are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and Sheepski Designs.  Normally I use both, for some reason I did this time.  This time I only used an image from Sheepski called Jo's Daffodils.  I stuck primarily with yellow and green and added some black. I used a quilled bee and otherwise kept this fairly CAS.

Mallard Mom's Card

This card was made for my mom.  She and her friend just moved to a new place, my mom loves mallard ducks so I thought this might be fitting enough as a "house warming" card.  They have been living as snow birds in their two bedroom, two bathroom 5th wheel for the last several years and due to health reasons figured it was time to drop anchor so regular doctor appointments would be easier to get to.

This image is from QKR, it is called Mallard.  I used a corner die, some black gems, twine and some DP I found at a garage sale a while back, I am not sure, but I think it is from Stampin Up.  I used colored pencil to color the image.  I did shrink the image, flipped one and kept the other the same and used a square punch to remove the smaller ones.  This would actually kind of work well as a Mother's day card for a mom who had two kids, or a Father's day card with two kids...LOL  Maybe I should double it up and give it to her as a Mom's day card too?  I sort of suck at getting cards into the mail, this would insure she got one.  LOL

Two Are Better Than One

I think this is the first time I've used this fun image from QKR Stampede called Stack Of Pigs.  I was trying to find something to play with and saw this and had to print it out.  I did layers using papers from 'My Minds Eye' and added some flowers, other than that, I kept it rather simple.

Steampunk Meow

I won a few images from My Stitch In Twine.  This one is Steampunk Cat.  I decided to make this card multi-layered.  by using pop dots.  I added some metallic papers I cut using some steampunk dies, then I also used some fun metal cogs and a metal charm.  I created the sentiment myself.

Spring Is Coming

With spring so close, I decided to make a couple "spring" cards.  Granted the 'blessed' card is a bit fall-ish, it is still intended as a spring card.  Both images are from Magnolia Stamps.  The papers are from some misc paper pads I just happen to have laying around.  The sentiment on the daffodil card is from Create With TLC.  The sentiment on the other was part of a paper pack.

Near To All Who Call On Him
