Do Small Things card

Happy Tuesday!  It's time for Team A's new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by The Cutting Cafe and we have Photo Inspiration:

 I love these colors and if you can't read the sentiment in the bottom corner, well, it's on my card!

I've used our sponsors image "One Spring Day 6" colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, a fun card cut from Cricut, some gems from The Paper Studio and wrote the sentiment using the writing function on my Cricut Explore.  I LOVE THAT!!!

Just a cute, fun card that I really enjoyed making.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown!!!

My First Spring Wreath!

I made my first Spring Wreath!  

The "Welcome" cut is a Cricut cut that originally said "Welcome Baby" but I sliced it.  It was so much fun and I really like how it turned out, so I just had to share it with you!

A Koala Hello

Well, I'm late sharing my DT project for Tuesday Throwdown again, but this time it really isn't my fault!  We took a lightening strike to the phone lines in our area and I have been without phone or internet for about 10 days!  So here is my card that is made completely with diecuts I had set back in my "tidbits" box (diecuts I made and then decided not to use on that project)  They are all Cricut cuts, but I can't tell you where they came from.

The theme at Tuesday Throwdown this week is "Tropical Critters" and we are sponsored by http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html

I really like this cute little koala!  I've printed it twice, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and used a second layer on her face and hands.  You can't really see it in this picture, but it has some nice dimension.  The background paper doesn't show up very well, but it has little hula girls all over it. and says "Aloha".

I'm going to enter these challenges this week:

Easter Frame

I finally got this frame done that I've had in my head for awhile.  I had seen this phrase on the internet last year and made a smaller version then.  You can see that one here, but I like this one a lot better! 

The die cuts are both Cricut cuts and I've cut three of each of them.  
Fonts:  blue font is Cricut's Baby Steps, 
  E & J are Everyday Fonts-Celebrate and the 
rest are Elegant Cake-Plain 
The "Easter" and "Jesus" are on the inside of the glass and with that and the 3 layer die cuts there's a lot of dimension inside the frame.

Thanks for checking in!

You're One Cool Chick!

http://samistamp.blogspot.com/Hello!  It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week we are sponsored by Sami Stamps and our theme is "Add Dimension".  This is going to be a fun one|!!!

I've used our sponsor's image "Little Miss Feather Chick" for my card.  What a cute image! 

She's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I've added some of my favorite---Sheer Ribbon ---with a Gem slide from The Paper Studio and a feather from my stash.  I've colored and cut a second hat to add another layer of dimension.  The background paper is

some I've had in my stash for a long time.  There's no name on the back of the paper so I'm guessing it came from a pad and is probably from Die Cuts With a View. 

This is another card for one of my Zippy Zebra Buddies and inside it says "You're One Cool Chick!" 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us this week!

A Friend Card in Black & White

Good morning!  I'm sharing a card today that I made using the sweet Bugaboo image "Friend Flower Doodle" that we received in the Freebie/Progressive challenge at The Outlawz.  I thought this would look great as a black and white card.  After putting it together, I love how it worked!

Isn't that a neat image?  It's great when it's colored in, too!  Fun one to work with.  Thanks Bugaboo!

I'm entering a few challenges today...haven't done that for awhile!

Wildflower Birthday Card

We have a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are sponsored by 
Our theme is "Your Favorite Embellishment".  

I've used an image from our sponsor, "Spring Bouquet" and "Ruffled Wild Orchid Sentiment" to make this card:

It's colored with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils, cut out with a Sizzix die and both are mounted on a Cricut scalloped circle cut. 
I'm not sure I can say this card has just one favorite embellishment.  I love to use die cuts, sheer ribbon (especially tied in a double bow) and gems.  I also love to ink around the edges of my cards!  If I do have to choose just one fave, I guess it would have to be the.....well...I just can't decide!   LOL!  I do love using my Cricut, though!

Come on over and join us!
