Cardvark Challange

I saw that Michelle had entered this Chardvark Challange and I had a card I had already made that I was hoping would be good for it... I am reposting it for the challange. I used the Walk In My Garden Cricut cart for the flowers and brads black white and red paper and a white gel pen and black Sharpie marker....I hope they like it.

This is my most favorite yet... I used the Paper Doll fairy wings to make the butterflies..they are cut twice at 1.25 inches once in velum and once in floral... and inked around the edges... the flowers are cut a .5 inches from Walk In My Garden on shadow blackout... the card is 5x5 the base paper is cut at 4.75x4.75...I ran it through my Zyron upside down... applied each white 2x2 square after I ran the base paper through the sticker maker... then I added clear glitter to the spaces... I love this effect.... the glitter also stuck around the flowers because the edges were a little sticky from the Zyron...the center of the flowers were made with a white gel pen.

Thanks so much for look
Love your comments

I found this Bee stamp at Hobby Lobby not on clearance...but had to have it anyway.. I didn't even have a 40% coupon for it... but it was so cute I just had to have it... then my friend Wanda, who inspires me so much, made a card with a pot of flowers and I scraplifted it so I would have a place for my bee... Thank you Wanda!!!... all my cuts are from the Cricut Walk In My Garden cart... the flower pot is cut at 3 inches and so are the stems...the nested flowers including the inside one are cut at 1/2 inch intervals starting at 1/2 inches and going to 3 inches... I used Pumpkin Pie colored ink from Stampin Up to ink my pot... flowers and card... and a brown Sharpie for the doodles... hope that you like...

Thank you always for looking

I have both of my kids going off to two different colleges this August ... I thought of them when I looked at this stamp and Woodstock looked as if he was watching over something... I masked off the stamp to get the bird in the grass.... The letters are from Alphalicious cart at 1 inch with a shadow... the "i" in if was larger and the "f" even larger than that but I don't remember how large... the flowers were from Accent Essentials cart at .75 inches and 1 inches...

I hope you like...

Happy Birthday To You!

I was laying down trying to take a much needed nap... this card came to me and I couldn't sleep... I hope that you can tell in just a second or two what it is saying without a title...
I used Paper Pups Cricut cart at 2 inches real dial size on the wagging tail and the sun.... I got the bird off the top of the dogs I had to cut it at 5 inches real dial size to make the bird large enough... I didn't use a whole piece of paper... just placed a 4x4 piece of red paper about where I though the bird would cut out at so I wouldn't waste a huge piece of paper.... the 2 and you are from the Printing Press cart at 1.75 real dial size and so is the "!".....
I really want to know what you girls think of this one..


I am so so excited!!! My Hang In There card made the Cricut newsletter.... I have been published!! I am just so so excited... had to share... here is a link...

Bloom Where You Are Planted

This is really a simple card... I used a coloring book image scanned and reduced .... then used colored pencils and mineral spirits to color it... the tag is from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cart cut @ 4.5 inches... I had to cut it that big to get the width and trim the bottom and use a corner rounder on the bottom corners... I cut the letters from the Mickey Font cart at .75 inches and the flowers are a punch... Bloom Where You Are Planted was what the picture screamed at me when I saw it....

Hope you like
