Thank You, Thank You, Thank You !

This time around the challenge at Cardz TV is to create a thank you card. Pretty fun one and I mean...who doesn't need a thank you card at one time or another?! I created my card using my Cricut Expression machine and Create a Critter cartridge to make my tree and squirrel. The sentiments come from two different Cardz TV stamp sets..."It's All About You" and "Ticket Talk 2".

The stars on the tree are from a Studio G punch and the grass was cut out of another cartridge (can't remember which one). The gems were placed on with glue dots and a white gel pen was use to "stitch" around the tree.
Go on over to Cardz TV, check out all of the great creations by our D.T. and then try your hand at it! You might just be the next winner of a Cardz TV stamp set!

Mother's Day Challenge

This time at Jellypark Friends our challenge is all about your "Mom"s,"Mum"s, "Mother" or whatever you call that angel that lived in your home and took care of you when you were growing up! Over "across the pond" in England Mother's Day is quickly approaching. Here in the States We have a few more weeks until our Mom's special day. We all got to work with whatever image we desired and I chose the "Gardening Mom" as I feel the closest to God when I am gardening... Here is what I created:

My sentiment is from Create with TLC. I just love this sentiment and it is so true! Now that I am a Grandmother I think about all of the things that I wanted to do in my life versus all of the things I have done...So many of my plans never came to fruition but so many other wonderful things happened in their place. I don't regret for a minute how my life turned out but; I should have really enjoyed and lived each moment as it came and went! Life has a way of going by so quickly. Now I know all of you new young mother's will say; "whatever is she talking about"? But wait til you are older and you will know what I mean...
Please plan on checking out our challenge blog at Jellypark Friends and see all of the wonderful Mother's Day cards created by our talented D.T. Then join in our fun and perhaps you will be the winner of one of our darling stamps!

One Cool Dude...!

I wanted to do the challenge over at Doodle Pantry this month using one of the sweet images that you can find at the Doodle Pantry store.
I used a bunny image and then used another image from one of the accessories sets. I used the sunglasses and put them on my bunny in Photoshop! Colored all with Copic markers... He is now absolutely "one cool Dude" ! I computer generated the sentiment and then did some faux stitching around it all. I found some stickers that I applied to the area also. This was then mounted on another paper then placed on the card base with yet another paper covering that. My "one 1" flag in the top corner is from a set of markers for marking pages. I also used a compass stamp that I stamped on a page from a book. Then I placed the compass on another punched out circle of card stock.

This card is for my nephew who's birthday is this week.

Oh Baby...!

Everyone loves a new baby! This week at Cardz TV the challenge is to create a card for a new baby. Here is what I created:

My sentiment is from one of Mary's newest stamp sets: Sugar Rush. My papers are from papers I bought at a "garage sale" from my stamping store so I don't know whose they are...sorry! My image is from Jellypark Friends. I love this sweet giraffe and thought it perfect for a baby card. I used an Stampin' Up punch to string the twine through the paper to the front.My image is popped up and the little hearts on the sentiment are from a punch from Studio G. The base for the sentiment was cut out using a Spellbinder die and then distressed around the edges with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
Here is the inside of the card...
Once again the same turquoise paper was used (even tho it doesn't look the same in the light that I took the picture in). Another Spellbinder die from the same set was used to place the sentiment on and a vine was cut pout using yet another die! The sentiment is from another Cardz TV stamp set: Ticket Talk 2.

I also CASED a card that Mary had done on her blog because I just thought it was so darn cute! Here it is:
If you want to check out her video on how to make this card just click here and you will be taken to the video! I used different colors and also a different sentiment (from Cardz TV) which changed mine up a little bit from hers.
Make sure to hop on over to Cardz TV and check out the challenge and all of the lovely cards made by my team mates. Then hopefully you will join in the fun!
Happy Friday everyone!
