Meow

This is an all occasion card made for the current progressive challenge that Limited Runs does every month.  I've been so busy this last few weeks with weddings and socializing.  I love summer!!

For this card I used Bird House 3 and the fun cat that is the current image for the progressive challenge.  I added a grass die to the bottom, I embossed the "window trim" and added gems, flowers and a bow. I did add larger googly eyes to the kitty cat and added a touch of glitter (Stickles) to the hanging cat toy.

Suck An Elf!

This week over at Catch The Bug the challenge theme is "Inspired by your favorite movie".  One of my favorite movies is The 10th Kingdom.  This was actually a Hallmark Mini Series back in 2000 with a fun all star cast based on all of the Grimm Brother's stories, the Grimm way, not the Disney way!  I call this my 'sick movie', when I'm home sick from work and can't do much but lay in bed I will watch this, due to the fact that its 417 minutes long (almost 7 hours).

For my card I used an troll image (the trolls in this movie crack me up!).  This image is called Cute Troll.  I added a die cut that is a tree, but my take of a 'beanstock'.  I added some burlap, hemp twine and some green pearls.  I created my own sentiment sort of quoting the trolls from the movie.

I Love Shoes

This month over at Catch The Bug, Stella Says Sketch the sketch is this:


I used a Bugaboo image from a set called 3 Silhouettes Set.  My boss is always wearing these gorgeous high heels, so for her birthday I wanted to make her a card with a pretty high heel on it.  I kept with the black/grey tones. I used some flag dies, a word die set and a corner die set.  I added some gems and two different DPs.

Be There For You

This sweet image is from Bugaboo.  The challenge theme at Catch The Bug is "Anything Goes".  I love the Bugaboo silhouette images!!  This one is called Right Beside You Silhouette.  I print it onto pink paper and cut it out using a stitched edge die, did the same with the frame behind it.  I added ribbon, gems, flowers and used a new dragonfly die set.

Eenie-Meenie-Minie-Mo

This card was made because I'm soooo tired of adulting and felt the sentiment fit my mood and the image...and right now, my skin (sunburn).  I used some fun DPs from a summer paper set.  The image is from QKR and is called Beach Girl.  I added a sentiment from Create With TLC, gems, flowers and several layers from different DPs.

Still Hot

This fun image is from QKR.  This is Hot Pepper.  I kept this card theme fairly open.  It could work for a birthday card for a more mature woman, it could be an anniversary card, it could be a valentine card even...Or just because.  I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday, they are letting you pick any of their previous sketches right now, so I chose this one:
I used an edge punch along the bottom of the red strip and then used an embossing folder for the "with love"  I created my own sentiment.

Ladybug Birthday

I have made a twisted easel card before, but it has been a long time.  I got these new ladybug dies and wanted to play around with them...so, I did!  The only stamp on this card is on the inside, it is from Create With TLC.  Obviously I used lady bug dies, I also used some fun wooden ladybugs, an edge punch, a happy birthday die and added black gems.  I actually have a friend who is scared to death of lady bugs...I love them!

An Original before it was cool

This fun card was made using an image from QKR called High Top.  My card was inspired by some of my own shoes:


I followed a sketch from Sketch Saturdy.  This week you can choose ANY of the past sketches, so I chose this one:
I added some DP in the background, and just simply added a bow.  The sentiment was created by me to fit the image.
