cards/challenges

Your probably thinking Easter is this girl nuts it's only August. LOL! When I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday I instantly got this card idea. The bunny image in the bottom middle is from a TAC stamp set that was kindly sent to me by Tina (Tina I will be placing an order with you soon - Love the stamps). The eggs are from Cricut Doodlecharms. The word Easter was on paper that I bought from the dollar store and I cut them out to fit on my card better (they were to spread out on the original paper).
I know I go from Easter to winter/Christmas. But hey when you get a card idea you have to run with it. This sketch is from this weeks Our Creative Corner challenge. I was having a difficult time getting the "wave" just right so I went with a more "wavier" look. Over all I'm pleased with the card with the exception of the bottom left corner I dabbed ink on it in error and if I cut it off I will have to cut the word Joy off and the card wouldn't look right. It gives it that personal touch I guess. Grrrrrrr. The right side of the card I ran through the cuttlebug using the snowflake embossing folder. Can't wait to get my hands on the new embossing folders! I also made this card for the PaperTake Christmas Card Challenge.





The challenge at Papertake was Cool Yule, make a Christmas card. I had this house mouse image for the longest time but never used it. It's an okay card, nothing specular or wow about it but its kind of cute. The paper I had in my stash forever so sorry don't know who it is from.


Finally this is going to be our nieces birthday card. She will be 3 on the 25th of this month. Cinderella was made using the Happily Ever After cartridge. I covered her slipper in diamond stickles. There is a sparkle by her hip in the picture here but rest assure there is nothing on the actual card I examined it real good, so it must be from the flash. I still need to come up with a cute princess birthday saying for the inside. I was thinking about stamping Happy birthday under Cinderella (in the blue part) but then thought nah.

Cute cards. We all make cards we don't need right away all the time, so it doesn't matter if you made a easter or a christmas card now.

You go from 0 cards on one day to 4 cards in one day :-)
