Little Lamb card

I did get this idea from someone else's blog, but I put my own spin on it. I cut out the lamb and wagon from Create a Critter cart and mounted them onto a green background. I printed "Radio Flyer"on the wagon as that was the wagon that I had as a child. I corned punched the green match in four places and added a scalloped circle with "thinking of you' stamped on it. The final touch was to adhere a button from a very special friends and it was complete.

Forgot Your Birthday Card

For many months I have seen the advertisement for cat litter with pictures of cats needing to go potty. I thought that I might make a card from this and when I saw this one it came to my mind that maybe instead of having to go potty, maybe she/he was going "Whoops" I forgot your birthday. Anyway this is my attempt to use other medium and also some humor. I hope you enjoy it.

Embroidered Valentine Card

Here is my valentine card for the season. I embroidered the interconnecting hearts with two different colors of pink/red and then sewed the sentiment in black. I mounted it onto a pink card and there you have it.

Kitty Card

Here is a card that I embroidered a kitty on. I had alot of fun with this one as I tried to make the kitty look like Flyboy, my cat. I used chalks for the coloring of the kitty, flowers and grass. I added rhinestones for the eyes, the middle of the bow and the middle of the flower. The edges were done with an all over punch that I received for Christmas. Kitty is mounted on a light purple card.

2 Flower Cards

Here are two flower cards that I also made yesterday. I used the new embossing folder for the backgrounds and a digi stamp from Fred She Said. I colored in the flowers and using foam tape, put them together. I mounted the flowers in the opening that is cut when you emboss the backgrounf.

Music Card

Yesterday morning I realized that I had to make a music card for a girlfriend's husband. I used a piece of sheet music for the background. I cut the piano and trumpet from Everyday Paper Dolls and cut them at 2" I added a velvet scroll at the bottom, some gold peel off sticker and a scalloped oval with "You Rock" and "Happy Birthday". I think it turned out really nice for a fast card.

Here is a card that I made and am sending it out to all my friends for New Years. May all your wishes come true and I wish you health and happiness for the coming year. I used the Create a Critter cart for this one and I think it is so cute.
