2Sketches4U - Laura's sketch #16

Shhhh! It's the DH's bday and this is his card. His birthday is tomorrow and I don't want him to see his card yet, but I had to post it for Laura's sketch this week. I feel like you don't see too many "guy" cards so I thought I would use this one for the sketch this week. TFL!! (and shhhhhh......don't let the cat out of the bag!).

He Loves Me........

Here we go...........starting my Valentines Day cards. This one is for Kazan's sketch #16 over at 2Sketches4u. I thought I would kill 2 birds at a time by participating in some challenges while getting my cards done. The hearts are punched from the Martha Stewart punch. The scalloped circle is cut with the Cricut, using the Mini Monograms cartridge. TFL!

It's over............

Well, Christmas has come and gone and what a great Christmas it was! I got to spend 5 entire days with Maggie! She was so sweet and fun and she loved all her gifts from Grammy and Pops. She especially likes her Dora the Explorer ride on toy. Her parents push her around the house and she loves it! My DH got me 3 new Cricut carts for Christmas.........YEA!! I also got some new scissors (sticky free!), some new craft storage boxes and a few gift cards to buy MORE scrappy things!! Don't you just love Christmas?!! Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I look forward to seeing all of your great designs in the coming year. I hope to be a part of more challenges in 2009. I've got my scrappy room pretty organized now, so I should be able to work a little better. Well, now it's on to Valentines Day cards. It never ends does it? Thank goodness!!
Happy New Year everyone!!

Yet another birthday...........

WOW! I think I may have one more bday card after this one. December has been a busy month for birthday's!! This one is for a friend. I used the Cricut Celebrations cart for the hat. I used the Fiskars threadingwater punch for the trim and the paper is My Minds Eye. TFL!!

Another birthday...........

Seems there are so many birthday's in December. March must be a very cold month every year :)

This is another birthday card for a friend to give to her sister. The paper is Making Memories, the arrow is October Afternoon from a free kit I got at a LSS. The little embellies (called Skittles by my scrappy sisters) and black ribbon are from Michael's.

The wording is rub ons. Don't you just love rub ons? TFL!

Birthday's are a HOOT!!

This card is for a friend's mom. The owl is a Stampabilities stamp. My stamp didn't work real well on the patterned paper, (it's textured) so I used my Kor-I-Nol black pencil to fill it in. The branch is from the Cricut Storybook cart. Paper is from some stash and I used the Fiskars threading water punch on the top. The branch and punched edge may look black on the pic, but they are brown. TFL!!

Dixie's Birthday...........(Yes, it's a dog!)

So, a friend asked me if I could make her some invitations for her dog's birthday party. Well, of course I said yes! So, Dixie is going to be one year old next month and I made 12 invitations for her party.

I used Paper Pups Cricut cartridge (borrowed from my BFF Julie), a paw punch and a few little embellies. The inside has the party info and a cute little bone at the bottom. Happy Birthday, Dixie! TFL!

Happy Birthday to you.......

This is a birthday card for a friend.

The pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye.

The ribbon and embellie were picked up at HL.

I scrap lifted this idea from the new "Cards"

magazine. I love that mag!! TFL!
