DCT29 Things with Wings



Earlier this week, my daughter asked me if I was going to make her a special card for her birthday. I was planning on it, but now there are "expectations". The pressure is on....


When I was looking around for inspiration, I found the DCT29 challenge - Things with Wings. From there, I decided use Itty Bitty Betty butterfly from Pink Cat Studios. Since butterflies are always around flowers, I used my Cricut Wild Card cartridge to cut the card base into a flower shape. To make it a little more fun, I made it into a spinner card.
What do you think? Is this suitably "special" for an eighth birthday?


Supplies:

Stampin' Up Slumber Party designer paper
Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink card stock
Stampin' Up Pale Plum card stock
White cardstock (Georgia Pacific)
Cricut
Plantin School Book cartridge (for the "8")
Wild card cartridge for the card base

Stampin' Up Markers & Soft Subtles ink pads

Close To My Heart spots on background stamp (on the "8")
Brads
Swirl Clip
Close to My Heart ribbon and flowers
Stampin' Up Slot punch
Pennies (for the spinner card)
Sakura Gelly Roll pens (black and clear glitter)

Berry the Snowman

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
