God Bless America

This is the sketch the Mojo Monday sketch this week.  I decided to used this sketch and the Red, White and Blue color combo challenge from ...wee memories to come up with my card.  The pattern papers are from K and Company.  I just love all their paper packs.  This card also fits the  Paper Cutz Challenge this week.  We were asked to use a sqare, circle or star on our project.  This star was cut with George and basic shapes,  the white scalloped circle was cut with Lacy Labels.

Flower Snail.....

This is the color combo over at Picture Perfect Creations this week. I kind of had a hard time figuring out what to do with these colors.  I decided on the Create a Critter snail....and then I added Prima flowers for the shell.  I know....snails don't usually have flower shells....but I think it looks pretty.  I used my MS Doily Lace punch and some ribbon for the border.

Loads of Love for Father's Day.....

This is a card I made for Father's Day.  I cut the truck from Just Because Cards, I cut off the wooden panels on the bed of the truck.  The hearts are from Paisley and the "hill" border from Give a Hoot.  I ran the sky blue background through the Cuttlebug using Divine Swirls and the "hills" are embossed with the Swiss Dot folder.  I think the kids and I will give this to my husband for Father's Day.  I love the way it turned out. 

I plan on entering this in a couple of challenges:  Paper Cutz, CAS - tastic Challenges and Card Blog.

Lacy Labels - SPCC #52

This is the color combo this week at SPCC.  I got the Lacy Labels Cricut Lite cartridge to day at Wal-Mart so I decided to try it out.  This cartridge has some really pretty cuts on it.  I was concerned about how this one would cut with all these rectangle cut outs, but it cut perfectly.  I cut the oval shape and all its layers at 3-1/2".  The floral mat is fromK and Company and the flowers are from Prima.

Shoes.....Cricut Cardz Challenge 28

The Cricut Cardz Challenge this week is to make a project with shoes on it.   I used my Paisley cartridge to make my card.  This awesome pattern paper is from Anna Griffin, Peyton Colllection.  This mat pack has some really cool animal prints and leather type patterns.  I think I got my sentiment a little off center....the circle scalloped punch I have is a little tricky.  I think I would rather have a squeeze type punch.  I think it turned out okay anyway.

Floral Thank You

Here is one other card I made this week. I submitted this for the Cards Blog floral paper challenge. This pretty floral paper is from The Paper Studio, Pink Armadillo stack. I made this layered flower using the accessory flower on page 62 of the Create a Critter cartridge. I stamped and heat embossed the "thank you" on a blossom shape from George. This is a pretty simple card but I love the way it turned out.


I wanted to share another card I made this week. I wanted to used this cutie owl from Create a Critter for a graduation card but since she looks like she is sleeping I decided to add "Dream" as the sentiment. I used the phrase from the little lamb cut on Create a Critter and just trimmed off the "s" with an Exacto blade. This cute patterned paper is from the MS packs I got recently from Wal-Mart.

Mojo Monday 142 and Made by Momo

This is the sketch over at Mojo Monday this week. I used this cute owl from Give a Hoot to come up with my card. I plan to use this for a graduation card...I have several parties coming up in the next couple weeks. Graduation is the theme for the challenge at Made by Momo. She is giving away a Cindy Loo Crictu cartridge (yeah!). The scalloped border is from Just because and the yellow scalloped circle is from Create a Critter.

SPCC #51 and Wee Memories

This is the color combo over at SPCC this week. I love these pretty! I got some new stamps last week and decided to try them out. This set is called "Utterly Fantastic" from Inkadinkado and there are some really cute images....this cute little bird, a cow , a penguin and a monkey...all with cute little punny sayings. I obviously need to practice my coloring....or maybe I should stick to using the Cricut. This card also fits the challenge over at Wee Memories, which is Punch It. I used my scalloped circle punch and the MS lace doily border punch.

Cricut Cardz Challenge #27

The Cricut Cardz Challenge this week is to make a Father's Day card using any cartridge. I used Give a Hoot earth gift cut (I trimmed off the bow) and the shaped mat from is from Just Because Cards. I printed the sentiment on the computer. This striped background paper is from one of the very first paper packs I is paper instead of card stock so I am trying to make an effort to use it for mats and things like that.

PPC-CC #15

These are the colors over at Picture Perfect Creations this week. I used some cardstock from my stash that is close to these colors. I used my Cuttlebug and some Prima flowers to come up with my card. The big green flower is silk....I got these from Peachy Cheap several months ago but have not used them before. They are so big and sort of sheer but I think it looks okay. This "Happy Birthday" ribbon is MS.

SPCC #50

This is the color combo over at SPCC this week. I don't have these exact colors but used some from my stash that are close. I used the little hedgehog
from Create A Critter, my Nesties and a Prima flower to come up with my card. I've been having a hard time coming up with ideas this last week or so but luckily I just came across an awesome clearance sale at Wal-Mart today. They were clearing out all their scrapbooking aisle. I got MS 12 x 12 double sided paper pads for $3. I also got some stamps and some embellishments for almost nothing. Hopefully, these new goodies will give me some new ideas!
