Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday! Today's card was made for the challenge over at Jitterbuggin'. The challenge was to make a card with a gift theme, add some bling, add a bow and use your cricut. There is also a great sketch that you could follow. I decided to follow the sketch. :) I love sketches! Here is what I came up with:

Supplies Used:
Cricut--Sweet Treats (gift cut out at 3")

Happy Monday!

Good Monday Morning Everyone! Today marks the beginning of a new challenge over at Paper Therapy. This weeks challenge is to make a project for a boy or man. I have to say, I really struggle with these kind of projects. I always want to add a ribbon, glitter or something sparkly. :) This is what I came up with:



No cricut was used in this project! I know! It shocked me too. :) I ran the green background layer through my cuttlebug and then ran some distress ink over the top. The ovals were cut from Nestabilities and layered on top of each other. If you are up for the challenge, come on over to Paper Therapy. We would love to have you join us! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look. I really appreciate it!

Card Stock--Brown (coredinations), Kraft (SU!), Green & Blue (unknown)

My "New" ATG!

So, I have been wanting the Pink ATG ever since it came out cause the color was so pretty, but I couldn't justify spending the money on a new ATG since I already had one. I talked to my wonderful husband and he said it wouldn't be a problem to paint it up for me. I was a little scared at first, I mean what if something happened to it. I love that thing! :) I searched the internet and saw that a bunch of people have painted theirs with amazing results so we gave it a go.

Here is what it looked like all primed up:







I wanted mine to be purple. In my excitement, I forgot to take pics of it before I started decorating it but here it is in the beginning stages of the decorating process:




Here it is after the decorating and the clear protective coating had dried:




Isn't it beautiful? I just love it! My hubby did a wonderful job painting it up for me. Thanks so much honey! I used Lyrical Letters for my name and some glitter rub-ons for the floral decorations.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look. I really appreciate it!

Thanks a Latte!

Good Monday Morning Everyone! Today marks the beginning of another great challenge over at Paper Therapy. With Thanksgiving near, this weeks challenge is to make a Thank You card or a LO of something you are thankful for. Here is what I came up with for the challenge:



I think this card would be perfect to add a gift card inside to the recipients favorite coffee place. I used Smiley Cards for my tea cup cut at 2". I just left off the top layer that has the actual smiley face on it. I used some glossy accents on the patterned paper to give the look of porcelain. The "steam" is actually a flourish that was turned upside down, stamped and then embossed. The sentiment was actually typed on the computer and then just printed onto my card stock. I had so much fun making this card. Would love to see what you create for the challenge. Come on over to Paper Therapy and check us out. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and take a look. I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great day!


Supplies:
Smiley Cards(gypsy)---Cut ar 2"
Cardstock--Pear pizzazz (SU!)& Burgandy (unknown)
Patterned paper--K & Co.
Stamp--Flourish (Autumn Leaves)
Punch--Traditional Eyelet (Martha Stewart)
Misc.--Glossy Accents, White Signo Gel Pen, White Embossing Powder (Hampton Art), Ribbon (Offray), Embossing Heat Tool (Marvy)

Joy!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great and safe Halloween! Monday's mark the beginning of a new challenge week over at Paper Therapy. This week's challenge is to make a card with a hole in it.
