Christmas Snail

 I was wanting to create a Christmas card with this funny Santa Snail from QKR Stampede, as I was printing and cutting it I started to wish I had a santa to sit on his back, since I couldn't find a fitting one from QKR I found a fun set called Rustic Santa From Buddly Crafts.  I added a ribbon and some gems and wrote Merry Chirstmas using my Cricut.

Owl Birthday Step Card

 It's been a while since I've made a step card.  This card was made using an adorable image from My Besties- Sherri Baldy.  I also cut out the owl to add another to the card.  I added some lace, flowers and pearls.  Using my Cricut I cut the doily and banner and wrote the sentiment.  I also used my Cricut to create the layout for the step card.

Oh, Hello!

 The challenge this fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs is 'Kindness/Fondness and/or Add Lace'.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Alex Syberia Designs.  For my card I used two images from Alex Syberia Designs, Love You and one of the birds from Bird Wedding.  I used some fun textured paper I found in my piles of papers, cut the sentiment using my Cricut and added a bow.

Pole Dancer Birthday

If you have never tried to dance a pole or take a class you have no idea how difficult it is, especially for someone with two left feet like myself.  It is quite the work out!  Granted pole dancing has a pretty bad reputation, but I will tell you, I have a lot of respect for the people who can dance that pole, it takes a lot of strength and coordination.  

 I saw this fun image over on the YamPuff Chibis page - FREE!!  I turned this into a Tall/Skinny card using a rectangular sketch from Try Stampin' -or not' On Tuesday:


I used a couple of fun DPs, cut the lower half using my Cricut, for that matter, the images was also cut using my Cricut.  I added some ribbon I got from CTMH, used a glimmer pen from CTMH, then added some gems.

Fight Like A Girl

 Today one of my co-workers asked me to make a card for a little 8 yr old girl who just found out that her cancer has returned.  She had been in remission for a few years, so this was rather devastating news.  They all knew the return was a possibility, however, that didn't make the news any easier.  My co-worker asked if I would make her an uplifting/encouragement type card for her to give to the little girl.  The little girl has long blond hair, and so I was asked to make one with a blonde haired girl. After going through all of my digital images that I already had, I didn't find one that really fit what I was looking for.  I found this image on the Free Chibi page over at the Yampuff website where there are a lot of really fun and free digital images.  I used my Cricut to cut out a bunch of fun shapes (the scalloped boarder on the bottom came from the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge, the shape the sentiment was written on [also using the Cricut] came from the Cricut Craft Room Basics set, the stitched edging came from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge).  I sponged the white piece I put the image over using a stamp pad and some glitter paint, then I added two different ribbons and some gems.  Because of the patterned papers it turned out pretty busy, but I actually like how it turned out!  Sure hope my co-worker, and more importantly, the lit little girl, like it!

A Jawsome Birthday Card

 This card was made with a few different challenges in mind.  

First I used the current sketch from Sketch Saturday.


Heart 2 Heart (using CTMH items) - the challenge is 'Tags', the CTMH items used are the Peacock-stitched ribbon and the shark and sentiments from the Jawsome Birthday Stamp Set.


Bitten By The Bug 2 (Cricut Projects) - Use Patterned Paper - the DP and tag used are from Go Digital Scrapbooking, I uploaded the tag to my Cricut work station and used the print and cut option.  I also stampped the shark image, scanned into my computer, then uploaded to Cricut so that I could cut it out too.  

I added a fun metal skull and crossbones.  I used some Glossy Accents over the eye for some added texture.

Black and White Sheep

 These sheep are from Dr. Digi Called 'Flossy'.  I've colored them black and lt. grey.  I used some fun cow print digi paper.  The sentiment was drawn and cut using my Cricut Explore 2.  I followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday by turning the square into a tall/skinny card.

Cowgirl Cards

 One of my co-workers asked me to make her daughter a birthday card, she is into horses, her and her brothers do the rodeo thing...  I went ahead and made a couple to choose from.


This was made using some paper from Go Digital a sentiment I found online and the sentiment drawn by my Cricut.



This card was made using the same sentiment as the first, the image is from Delicious Doodles.

Mrs. Claus Waiting

 This was inspired by this week's challenge over at The Paper Shelter, which is "Activity, Hobby or Job".  As a professional Mrs. Claus this fits two of those - Hobby and Job.  I used an image from The Paper Shelter called Waiting For Santa Too.  I added some flowers, leaves, a bow and a sentiment on a banner.
