Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #62 - Christmas card

Well, I'm barely getting this one in under the gun.  I made it for Freshly made sketches challenge #62.  Thanksgiving is over, I made a trip up to Salem and back in one day and sat down with a few minutes to myself tonight!  What a great week!

I made this nifty little card using my cricut, of course.  I am thinking about purchasing another cutting machine (I can't believe I'm admitting this on-line).  So if anyone has any input I'm looking at the Sillhouette Cameo or the Sizzix Eclips.  I'm stuck and could use help here!  Anyhow, back to this card, I used the Winter Frolic cart for the trees and the Designer's Calender for the number circle.

CWC #112 and SSSC172

This card I made for two challenges.  One is the Sweet Sunday Sketch #172, or SSSC172.  I love the sketch challenges!  The other is for Cooking with Cricut Challenge #112.  CWC's challenge is "I feel the LOVE" project card outreach and these cards go to children that are hospitalized during the holiday season in California.  Is that awesome or what?

I made this card using the Winter Frolic cart for the Snowman and Artiste for the tag.  I think any child would LOVE a snowman, right?

Polar bear christmas

I found this card design at: http://onehappystamper.typepad.com/stamping_inspirations_wit/2010/11/polar-bear-blessings.htmlI thought it was stinkin' cute I had to scrap-lift it, but want to give credit to this talented lady!  So if you want to how-to's, skip on over to her web site.  She gives details!

Baby Buggy

On October 11, 2012, I became a grandma again for the 3rd time!  Another baby boy!  Very exciting.  He came a month ahead of time, coinsidentally on the same day my third son was getting married, so the 10-11-12 date is especially special to us!  He is strong and healthy and that's all we need, however the babes needed clothes.  So I packed up a box of preemie clothes and sent it off to Arizona with this little card to go with it!

I cut the buggy from the Designer's Calender cartridge (which I love) and the Sweet One stamp is vintage stampin up called So Many Scallops.

Freshly Made Sketches challenge #60

Here's my entry for Freshly Made Sketches.  The idea is to keep it "clean lined and fresh".  It's so hard for me not to put tons of detail on my cards, but I think this one is scaled back a bit.

I learned to use my cricut craft room today....well at least a little bit.  I still have some questions, but that's another post!  I used preserves for the avacado.  The circle is from Artiste, I love that it is a real circle!

Case Study Challenge 115

I made this card for the challenge over at Case Study where the theme is rainbowish.  I thought it would be easy, but turned out to be much harder then I expected.  But here it is!

I cut the leaf from the Designer's Calender cricut cartridge.  Any thoughts?

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

I'm entering this little darling in the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge SSSC171.  I'm really enjoying the Authentique paper lines this holiday season.  This one is the Festive line.  I saw a card on pinterest that sparked this design for me.  My biggest fear in life is birds, but I love how pretty they are, strange, right?

Anyhow, I cut the little birdie from the Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge along with the branch and used the cuttlebug to create the embossing on the background paper.

OCCC - Our creative corner challenge - Ice Skater

I saw this challenge over at Our Creative Corner and flipped out because I had just got finished with this card and it fit their challenge to a tee!  I guess great minds think alike after all.  Anyhow, I have had this image in my mind all day and wanted to work in this beautiful paper I found from Authentique collection:  Peaceful.  It is so gorgeous and is the inspiration for the theme of this years christmas decorating for me.

I found the silhouette on the Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge and the rest of the shapes on the card are from the new Artiste CTMH cart.  Hope you enjoy!
