Mojo Monday, and I am sure I will be using it for a few more cards. And Paper Playtime has a Red, White, and Blue challenge. I only used my Cricut for the stars (George), the rest is just fun patterned paper. Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th!

FCCB we are challenging you to Frame It! I was excited for this challenge because I have never used a frame on a card! And as I was trying to figure out if my mat should or should not show from outside under the frame, I thought, there is no right or wrong when you are creating - you can just do whatever! I decided to leave the mat and just round the corners. I used Elegant Edges for the frame and I used Serenade for my bird. I recently added Serenade to my library of cartridges and I really love the flourish on this cart. I added some bling to the frame and stamped a small sentiment "thinking of you". The patterned paper is from a 6x6 paper pack from ColorBok (Wal-Mart). I hope you join us this week over at FCCB!!!

Come on over to FCCB this week and play along with another great challenge! It's all about Wedding Days! Have I mentioned that we have a bunch of weddings this month? 2 down, 2 to go and this card is for the 3rd wedding we will be attending. Anyway, I used Birthday Bash for the scallop circle shape card and mats. I used Sweethearts for the wedding couple and ran the dress and veil through the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder. The veil was made just by cutting out the hair in white and layering it. The couple is popped up using two thicknesses of foam tape. The patterned paper comes from My Mind's Eye 6x6 Lost and Found Madison Avenue pack. The sentiment is from the CardzTV Happy Days stamp set. I hope the happy couple will like this card!

BBTB2 "From The Kitchen" I knew it was the perfect opportunity to use a pie image. This pie is from the Country Life cartridge, there is usually a rolling pin attached to this, but I cut it off for my card. Mojo Monday's sketch for the week also served me perfectly as the inspiration for this layout. Paper Playtime's challenge is Anything Goes, so I will be entering this there too. The patterned paper is from DCWV Nana's Kitchen, ColorBoK 6x6 Natural Expression pack, and Echo Park 6x6 Charming pack. I used Spellbinder's Classic Bracket for the top and bottom border. Of course, foam tape is popping up the mats, the image, and the flag. I'm thrilled with how this turned out and can't wait to send it to her.

My Creative Time. I used Playtime for the cute little boy and Something to Celebrate for the balloons. I did use the Flip option for the balloons. The paper is from DCWV Birthday Wishes 6x6 stack. I still don't have any Peachy Keen Stamps to make the faces super cute, but he still turned out. Thanks for stopping by!

MyCutSearch.com to see what carts had tools and low and behold there is a cart called "Handy Man". Of course it is no longer available unless you want to pay $100 for it on Amazon or Ebay. SO BUMMED!!! That cart would have been so perfect for me to create a card for my dad. He is a builder/carpenter/jack-of-all trades and I love him for it! Anyway, I ended up using this cut from Celebrate with Flourish, it will definitely work. The patterned paper is from The Guy Stack from DCWV, all the tools and masculine colors - awesome! I will be entering this card in Paper Playtime (use two or more ribbons/twine/cord), CardzTV (Father's Day), My Craft Spot (Dad), and even though this card isn't exactly the sketch from Mojo Monday, I did draw inspiration from this week's sketch to create it. Thanks for visiting!
Hello all you challenge addicts (I know I am one, so I mean no offense)! This week welcomes another fantabulous challenge over at FCCB - Ribbons, Ruffles, and Bows. Link up your projects you have created using 2 or more types of ribbon. I had fun with this challenge and hopefully you will too. I used Create-A-Critter 2 to make this adorable little party monkey. The paper is from DCWV Birthday Wishes 6x6 stack. I used some $1 American Craft ribbon I got from Joann's and generic white curling ribbon for this card. I used glue dots to tack down the curling ribbon then curled them up with some scissors - Easy Peasy! I hope you will join us this week over at FCCB!
