Football Jersey Card

My nephew just celebrated his 12th birthday.  He is a Kansas City Chiefs fan so I made him this card for him.
I used a template to create the jersey. I used my cricut to cut the number 12 and the football for the front of the card.

For the inside of the card I made the chiefs arrowhead using my cricut.  The player who wears the number 12 jersey for the Chiefs is the wide receiver, Albert Wilson.  I incorporated the position he plays into the sentiment of the card.

Back of the card:

I hope he likes the card. I think it turned out great.

Card Details:
Letters and numbers cut from the Base Camp Cricut cartridge
Football cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge
Arrowhead cut from the Everyday Paper Doll Cricut cartridge

You Make My Heart Smile

I created this fun card for my husband for our anniversary.  We are celebrating 26 years together.  He was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon cancer earlier this year and has been undergoing chemo treatments.  I figured he could use a smile and maybe a laugh or two so I am including tickets to a comedy club show with this card.

All the stamps are from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I just love these fun faces.  

Card Details: 
Spellbinders scalloped heart die
Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the clown heads
Base Camp Cricut cartridge for the heart on the front
Sweet On You Face Stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps for the faces on the hearts

Happy Anniversary

The new challenge at Aud Sentiments is to use a two word sentiment.  I chose "Happy Anniversary"  I had a love of fun creating a project with this die from Die'sire.  It really gave my easel card an elegant look. I used a stamp from Magnolia Stamps that is a Christmas stamp but I think it works for this occasion as well.

Card Details:
Stamp: Magnolia Stamps
Spring Garden die from Die'sire
Corner leaf from Storybook Cricut cartridge
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Quickutz nesting doily rectangle die

Flyin by

The new challenge at Addicted To Stamps is to stamp your background.  I dug around in my stash and found this background stamp from CTMH.  It's huge and works perfectly for a card background.  I paired it up with the plane and sentiment from another stamp set.  I love the way this looks with the blue, tan and brown.  Makes a perfect masculine card.

Card Details:
Mapped Background stamp from CTMH
On Display Stamp set from My Time Made Easy
Ink: Rich Cocoa
Martha Stewart border punch
Spellbinders scalloped circle die
Gina Marie stitched circle die

Thank You Cards

I needed more thank you cards so I made a bunch of this simple design.  I made 16 of them and of course have used them all.  I guess I will be making another batch of thank you cards soon.

Have A Tail Waggin' Good Day!

Took a break from cards to make this cute tag.  This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments.  We are sponsored by Ike's Art.  I used the image Malteese 1 for my project.  
This cute dog looks just like my dog, Isabella (Izzy). However, my dog is a Malshi (part Malteese and part Shih Tzu). 

Here's my Izzy:
