Happy Birthday Jessica!

Happy 21st Birthday to my Best Friend Jessica! 
A few weeks ago there was a Simon Says Challenge with multiple folds, but I couldn't participate because I had to write a paper :( so here is what I came up with later!  You can't see it in the picture(its bad I know, sorry) but I used glimmer mist to color the different circles.  The whole card sparkles!

Happy Birthday Mom!

I made this card for my mom's birthday and to play along with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge for this week.  The Challenge is to use a song or movie in your creation.  I thought this paper was perfect!  I tried my best to  make it look like old ripped sheet music, I just hope my mom likes it!

Purse Inspired Card!

Last week in Sunday School my friend Katie's purse caught my eye.  I just looked like a really cool card idea, so I tried it out!  I used 4 pieces of scrap paper for this card.  I first cut them to be the same size, then I put distress ink on the edges, and distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz Paper distresser.  Next I sewed the strips together and decorated! 

On the inside I used a Jillian Vance Design Stamp.  I love these stamps because they are great for the insides of cards and have wonderful Faith based sayings!  The best part is that I was able to use rewards from my credit card to get the sets for free!

Get Well Alligator Card

I made this card for my boyfriends grandfather when he was in the hospital last week.  This represents my best effort at making a boy/masculine card!  I find it really hard to create when I'm not allowed to use flowers or glitter or anything else girly for that matter!  So I decided to use this alligator from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge because the cards recipient paints a lot of swamp scenes.  I hope he liked it!  Now to work on improving my masculine card making abilities!
