BattleBots

 This card was made for one of my co-workers.  She has a kid who is big into doing battlebots.  She just got back from watching the filming of it in Vegas.  I asked her what she would like on her birthday card this year since every year for the past several it's been football...Tom Brady...LOL  This was one of the options she gave me.  I used gems, cogs, twine and flowers.  She said one of her favorite colors was purple, so that is what I went with.

Holiday Cheers

 Time for another challenge over at Dragonfly Dreams!  This months theme is Christmas/Winter.  Since there isn't a sponsor for this challenge we were able to use any image we wanted from our own stash.  I picked a retired one from Art Impressions called Cheers To You.  The fun green frame and the holly were cut using my Cricut.  I used an edge punch for the bottom boarder.  I used two different types of lace, added a twine bow and added some pearls.

Kitty Cat Thank You

 Today I received an envelope in the mail from a friend of mine.  She sent a congrats on your family just got a whole lot furrier card and a handmade catnip mouse gift for my new kitty.  By the way, I just went through the Animal Welfare League of Elmore County (they do accept donations if you are interested in supporting a great cause), and I adopted a 5-6 yr old 4 legged baby girl named Sabrina.  She is all white except for the pink on her nose and paws.  She is a beautiful girl with such a sweet disposition.  Here are the pictures I took of her playing with the new toy she was sent:


She loves it!!

For this card I used an image from Fred She Said called Kitty & the Ornament - I obviously removed the ornament.  I added a sweet little butterfly and some DPs - kept this very CAS.

Butterfly Christmas

 I just came across a new (to me) challenge blog called Butterfly Challenge.  They do things a bit differently than most, they have the "butterfly wheel", depending on the letter it lands on that is what creates the challenge.  So this time it landed on W for Vertical Window Card.  Regardless of the challenge, it has to always have a butterfly somewhere on the card - talk about right up my alley!!  I LOVE butterflies!!  The theme this time is V - vellum, vertical window, vegas gold, venetial red, vanilla.  I must admit, I was a bit confused because it says "the wheel is W and Vertical Window Card".  It also says that on the other page it would have tutorials on shapes for the letter, I went with W, not V (oops), so, I did vertical, but I did a waterfall card.  UGH!  I did fallow along with the colors for sure and I did add a butterfly, for sure.  LOL  So...Yeah...

I used an image from Fred She said (actually the holly came from another Fred She Said image as well, I just cut it off from the image.  The two I used were Christmas Cardinal (for the Holly) and SwallowTail original Fantasy Col Set.





Hope you like it!  :)

Adorable Puppy Line Slimline Card

 This card was made for this month's challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge.  The theme is ANYTHING GOES this month.  I chose to use Puppy Quartet.  I added the images twice to my Cricut, connected and flattened it so that it would cut as one image.  The sentiment I pre-print, hoping the image would fit!  LOL  I added gems and a bow.
