the blues

I know in alot of parts of our great world it is still snowy and wintery....but were I am we only get a bit of snow, we do get a lot of rain though, LOL! Anyways, I made this card for a friend of mine, she has a January birthday. I used the victorian embossing folder for the background and made the blue rose myself. I'm entering this at Our Daily Bread for the blues challenge.

Its all about the Heart

this is not only a handmade card by me but I designed the geometric background as well just by playing on the computer! ok enough of blowing my horn, LOL! I used the heart embossing folder once again, cut the hearts with my Cricut, swiss dotted one of them and crimped the other. I'm entering this in 3 challenges:

Sent with Love

I just adore this little bird from Nina May at Paper Cupcakes! I'll probably use it a few more times, LOL! Thes 2 colors are not ones I usually work with but I like how this turned out. I used the heart folder for the background, the birds & swirls folder for the yellow c/s and the victorian folder for the white c/s. I'm entering this into 2 challenges:

White on White

Flutterby Wednesday has a great challenge to use only white on white except for your image. This darling image is by Nina May at Paper Cupcakes. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do this but by using my Cuttlebug it worked great, lots of texture. The embossing folders I used were the textile for my background and swiss dot for my butterfly. I used a crimper for the hearts.

Valentine Friend

This is the first Valentine card I made this year, I love how it turned out. I was able to use my heart embossing folder for the first time too! I'm entering this at A Spoon Full of Sugar for Valentine Creations challenge.

black and white birthday card

I like using the color combo of black and white so was happy to see that Easy Craft had a challenge for making one, yeah! I cricut cut the heart which is a bit hard to see with the ribbon going through it and I'd hoped that the beads I added would bring it out more but that didn't happen.....I'm sure my friend will love it though! I'm entering this at Paper Sundaes as well for the distress/tearing paper challenge.

A Valentine card for my darling hubby

I made this Valentines card for my darling hubby. I used the Wedding Solution cartridge, it's a cartridge that I don't use very often so was perfect for Fantabulous Cricut challenge to use a "neglected cartridge".

pretty in pink

I haven't made a card in a week or so but last night I was able to get my thoughts together for this one. I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday and the pretty in pink challenge from Whoopsi Daisy.

FUZZ the bear

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2011. This is my first post of the year, wow....I have made lots of cards since Christmas but just have not had time to go to my favorite challenge blogs....but things have slowed down now and I'm checking out all my fav blogs and finding lots of challenges to do. So this card is for my great nephew who is turning 5 on Monday. The cute digi is from The Character Cafe and was just perfect for this card. I used my Cricut to cut out Liams' name and #5.
