Card from a friend

A little while ago I placed a order with My Favorite Things.  I wanted to see what their paper was like.  Which I have to say it is wonderful.  Nice and thick.  Great for card bases and to even add layers.  I absolutely love their paper.  Next I got a some dies.  I have wanted the dies that make the piercing around the edges.  So I got the square dies with the piercings around them.  They work great.  I walked up to Millie's place and showed her some of the squares I made with the dies and gave her a few sheets of paper.  When I handed her the paper she started working out a card in her head.  Next thing I know she came down to my house with a card she made using the papers and a die cut I gave her awhile back.  It is such a sweet card I had to post it.  Thanks Millie!  Love the card!!

Silhouette Challenge #15 Print n Cut

I decided to give the Silhouette Challenge a go.  This challenge is using a print n cut design on your project. 

Millie gave me a MS butterfly border punch for our monthly card swap.  When I found the print n cut design "house of 3 butterfly"  design id #9600 with a butterfly on it I just had to do it.  I used the border punch underneath the design across the middle.  It is such a cute punch.  Thanks Millie!

A owl card


Yesterday I pulled the cricut out and made a few cuts for this little hoot owl card.  I used the sentimentals cricut cart for the cuts.  I think I only used this cart once before.  After using it for this card I realized there are some cute images on this cart I haven't even used yet.  


Owl and the little stamp cut came from sentimentals cricut cart.
Special delivery sentiment is a Close to My Heart stamp.  
Roses were made using the Sizzix Flowers, 3-D Bigz die.
 4mm rose buds came from Wild orchid crafts.
Leaves with the roses came from a ek tools flowers and leaves large punch.
Pattern paper is from Prima 6x6 paper pad Lyric.
Stick pin I made with beads from my stash.
Paper layer the owl sits on was cut with Spellbinders Celebrations pierced rectangles die.
Edges of the image and papers were inked with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. 
I also added some stickles to the flowers and leaves but it is hard to see in this photo.

Challenges I am entering:

A day at the beach challenge


I made a card to enter into challenge #219 A day at the beach. Fantabulous  Cricut Challenge Blog.
I didn't have a lot of beach cuts on the carts I have but I did find a sandcastle on the Doodlecharms cart.

I had some neat nautical paper from Websters.  I just loved that whale in the ocean so I let the paper work for me.  Of course I had to add some glitter to the sand castle.   Add glitter whenever or however  you can....LOL!

I made a card this week for a couple of challenges.  Since I have the summer off I thought it would be fun to get my creative mojo going by doing a few challenges.

School is out for Summer!

 
Millie got me this sweet House Mouse stamp.  I made a card using it and sent it to her.  This little mouse is doing what I hope I have time to do this summer.  A bit of relaxing.
