Day 61-Circles 3 Ways

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to use 3 different types of circular objects on your card, not 3 circles of the same thing.  I made a circular card with buttons, a brad, and my paper even has circles.  I have a couple of quick questions to anyone who sews.  My sewing machine is needs to be replaced and I was wondering what kind of sewing machine do you have and do you like it?  Have a great weekend!

Day 60- All That Glitters

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is all that glitters.  For this challenge you need to use at least 3 different colors of glitter.  Since I only have white glitter I raided my daughters glitter tubes.  I'm sure it's not exactly what most would use on a card but it is what we had in the house.  I used green, blue, yellow, orange, and pink.  Have a great day!

Day 59-Moving Parts

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is moving parts. The challenge is to create moving parts on an image on your card. I made the monkey with my everyday paper dolls cartridge and the leaf and vine with my sweethearts cartridge. I used my crop-a-dile to punch a small hole in the vine and paper and added a small brad. The monkey swings back and forth very freely. I really like the way this card turned out, the swinging monkey is so cute.  Have a great day!

Spring Challenge Blog Hop

Here is my card for Practical Scrappers, The Cuttlebug Spot, and Pile It OnThe challenge at Practical Scrappers is projects that feature glitter, bling, jewels, pearls...all that fun girly stuff!   The challenge at the cuttlebug spot is projects blinged/glittered.  And the challenge at Pile it on is Say it with Words (NO IMAGE, ONLY quote, sentiment or embellishments as focal point)  I think my card covers all three challenges.  My paper is glittered and the flower is glittered and blinged.  The main focal point is words.

MPS Challenge

My Pink Stamper has a color challenge-pink, black, and green and use your cricut.  I used the home decor cartridge to make the butterfly and flower and the Don Juan cartridge for the letters.  The paper and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.   I made a covered journal with a matching thank-you card.  If you have a cricut check out My Pink Stamper and watch her cricut videos!
Watching her videos is how I learned to use my cricut.
