30 minute card

This was fun...30 minutes to make a card from start to finish using pink, purple and green. I used a variety of scraps and the Create a Critter cartridge. I ran out of time to stamp a sentiment on the front as I couldn't find anything I liked (yes, I set a timer). The ribbon matches the tummy better in person.

Male Birthday card

This card was for a challenge at C.E.S. challenges. The challenge this week was to make a male birthday card. I have a friend who just had a big birthday so this is in his honor (not sure I'll actually send it, I'm bad about that). The mountain goat is from the wildlife cartridge. I used 2 different embossing folders and distressed the card slightly. I used Tim Holtz distress ink on the stripes and around the edges of the card. The sentiment is on the inside but it's not photographed. It just says happy birthday.

Two challenges

This turned out a little "Eastery", but I guess that's ok. I started with the pink for breast cancer awareness month and went from there. A change from the Halloween cards of late. A "sassy" challenge and a sketch challenge. It's late so I'm posting quickly and may add more information tomorrow, we'll see. The top is embossed with a music folder. The paper is shiny but that doesn't show in the picture.

Simply Betty pumpkins

This challenge was to put a pumpkin in the card. I used a digi for the second time. I need more practice coloring, but they are fun to use! This is probably the darkest card I've made, but I like it. I embossed the background paper which has a large spider web pattern. The pumpkin is from the Oct. 31st Cricut cartridge.

Throwback Thursday challenge

This is for a the Throwback Thursday challenge at (Emma). The challenge was to use an animal from Every Day Paper Dolls. I chose the bear and made it a polar bear. The papers are an assortment from my stash. The snowflake punch is MS and I used the Irock in the centers. Had a little trouble stamping the sentiment and ended up going over it again with a white pen. It worked!

Halloween: Orange, black and purple

This was my first swing card and I definitely need to practice!! I will use colored cardstock next time and not try to cover it. All of these wonderful learning experiences;) The raccoon is from Create a Critter.

This card was made using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and mostly K and Company paper. The glitter paper was in my scraps. The foam is from EK Success. The center section was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

Karber Monthly challenge

This is my first time using a digital stamp. I bought the "Cup of coffee" yesterday because she was so cute and seemed very versatile. I made her into a witchy cup full of witches brew. She is colored in orange but looks pink in the picture. The sentiment inside says "Have a brew-ti-full day". (corny, I know) The rest of the card is made from a K and Company Halloween pack. The punch is MS. The bling on her hat was added with an Irock. She is popped with foam tape from EK success. It is a gate fold card.

Simply Betty challenge

I found this late but wanted to play. There had to be a skeleton involved somehow. I had lots of "cute" skeletons but wanted to try something a little spookier. It doesn't measure up to the other entries but it was still fun to do! There is glitter paper behind the skull to make it a little less plain.
