This card was made for a action challenge at scrappy mom.  I used the create a critter cart and some paper from Authentique. I made this for a little girls birthday.  I put the cat on an action wobble I got offline.  I think it turned out very nice.

This card was made for a color challenge at my creative time.  These are the flowers I made using the Flower Shoppe cart, the swirl is from a sizzix die, and the paper is from a mat stack from the Paper Studio.   I think it turned out very nice.

Today I have been working on a card for the challenge at Die cut Diva and Paper playtime.    I used SU paper for the card base, old olive and even an SU stamp, Loads of Love.  The other paper is from my stash.  I used Prismacolor markers for my truck; however, I used a black pencil on the tires to bring out the textured paper in the tires.



 Hope you like this, have a great evening.

Today I have been working on flowers from the Flower Shoppe cart and 2 SVG files I got at Birds Cards, http://www.birdscards.com/.  She always has the most wonderful designs.

The SVG file, rolled rose and rose leaf, I started out at 3 in an went down to 1.5, I made the leaf a half size smaller.  I cut them out of Megan Elizabeth Paper layers.  They turned out nice; however, the larger the rose the harder it is to turn down the petals.  I will have to use these on a box or other project, except the smallest one. 

The pink Flower Shoppe ones are the scallop1 design, the yellow ones are the daisy 1 and the blue one is sunflwr 1.  They are all cut from standard white card stock and then colored with spritz I made from SU inks.  I did two sizes 2.5 in and 2 in, they turned out great and I can’t wait to use them.  This size is just right for a card. 




Hope you like this, have a great weekend.

Today I have been working on rosettes, trying to get the right weight and height ratio. I think I got the hang of it, although my first few attempts were not very good.  Both were cut at 12 X 1.5, however, you can see that they are a different size.  The first one had about a 1/4 inch cut off with the edge cutter I used.  The second didn't cut any off but only cut the stars within the edge.   Both cards have a SU base of old olive.  The other papers are from DCWV and K&Company.  I don’t remember where I got this stamp.   I think these turned out very nice.

Today I have been working on a card for my sisters birthday.  All the paper is from SU.  It is a standard A2 size, but I made it into an easel with a spellbinders die in the center and for the sentiment.  The Magnolia stamp is Tilda in the garden.  The fabric flowers were found in my stach box.   I think this turned out very nice.
