Love-Ad Inspired Card

 Today's challenge at 365 Cards is an ad inspired challenge.  I used stampin up paper and Tie the Knot cricut cartridge for this card.  I added stickles to the heart, one of these days I'll remember to add the stickles after the card is put together! lol

Thank-you card-Super Sketchy Sunday

                                  Sunday's challenge at 365 Cards is super sketchy Sunday.  This is the card I made for the sketch.  I used some Amy Butler K&Company paper I bought a Joanns a couple weeks ago.  They had a bunch of paper on clearance, I bought this mat stack for 99 cents!  I bought 4 different mat stacks all for 99 cents each.  Have a great week!

2010 Family Page

                         Creations with Christina is having a challenge to complete at least one scrapbook layout a month.  Since I am sooooo far behind on my scrapbooking I am going to try to make at least one layout a month.  I'm hoping to get more done each month but we'll see.  I copied her idea for the first page of my 2010 album, I decided to make a college from all my pictures from 2010.  I used Home Accents for "family", A Child's Year for the "Our", Tie the Knot for the banner and Don Juan for "2010".  I hope this will motivate me to catch up on my scrapbooking.

Elegant Chandelier Card

                     The challenge for today at 365 Cards is pure elegance.  I used Stampin' up paper and ribbon and my home decor cartridge for the chandelier.  I added stickles and a gem to the chandelier for some sparkle.  I just started using stickles and I learned next time to put my card together before added stickles.  I suppose I could wait for the stickles to dry but I'm much to impatient to wait for them to dry.   Have a great day!

Super Sketchy Sunday

Sunday's challenge at 365 Cards is super sketchy Sunday.  I used my new Cindy Loo cartridge for the little deer, isn't she so sweet!  I also used my wild card cartridge for the base of the card.  Have a great day!
