Birthday Wishes

I made this card for one of my daycare kids who turned 4 years old yesterday.  She is a delight and this image reminds me of her, cute, spunky and lots of fun.
I kept the card CAS but I did add some diamond dust stickles to the dragonfly and the dandelions.

Easter Egg Card

I wanted to make a shaped card for Easter.  I used Cricut craft room to weld two egg shapes together to create the basic card.  I then added a few more layers . I think it turned out fun and almost looks like one of the sugar eggs people decorate.
This is my DT project for Aud Sentiments. 
Our current challenge is to create a project using a Any Sentiment other than a Birthday Sentiment.

Easter 2010 Cricut cartridge

Teen Boy Birthday Card

I made this card for one of my former daycare kids.  He celebrated his 15th birthday yesterday.  I miss having that happy little boy around every day.
This image from Mo's Digital Pencil is perfect for a teen birthday, which let's face it, are harder than cards for adult men.
I used my new Big and Little Pieced Chain Square die from Gina Marie Dies.  I love the look it gives to the card.

Twisted Easel Easter Card

This is my DT card for Simply Magnolia.  I decided to give my square card a little extra by turning it into a twisted easel card.  It's a great way for people to display the cards they receive but also lays flat for mailing.  I layered up a few of the pleated rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs.

Card Details:
Stamp: Magnolia Stamps Told a with Bunny 2009 Spring collection
Gina Marie pleated rectangle dies
Corner leaves from Storybook Cricut cartridge
Rabbit from Easter Cricut cartridge
Egg from Easter Cricut cartridge

Cupcake Thief

I made this card for a special friend who just turned 17 years old.  Actually, she is one of my former daycare kids.  She is super sweet and I miss hearing her say, "Miss Jul-lie"

For this card I used another great image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Cupcake Thief. I just love the way the hair turned out.
I created the card in Cricut Craft room by welding two shapes together. This has become one of my favorite card shapes.  It certainly is more interesting than your basic square or rectangle card.

Moose Christmas Card

**Oops, I messed up and thought I had this post scheduled to go live yesterday.
You know what they say, Always a day late and a dollar short.

It's the first of the month so that means a new challenge at Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra Challenge.  The theme is always anything Christmas goes.  Participating in the challenge is always a great way to get your Christmas cards done before the holiday rush.
I colored this cutie up with copics and then  painted the ornaments with extreme glitter paint over the copics to make them sparkle!
The image is from Bugaboo Stamps.  They are the sponsor for all of our challenges.  I kept the design simple and managed to use up some pieces of paper from my stash.  I used the Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and corner punch too.
