A Couple of Contrasting Sympathy Cards

I made a couple of sympathy cards this weekend that I'd like to share with you.  They are both for the same couple, but one is from a women's club that the wife is a member of and the other is from a "Cowboy" Sunday School class of which they are both members.  See if you can figure out which is which!

This card is made with scraps!  The bottom layer is a burlap paper from the Paper Studio and the next layer and the banner are scraps of paper I printed from Cricut.  The banner is also a Cricut cut.  The horse is a sticker from Karen Foster Designs, mounted on a scrap of cream paper and inked.  The sentiment is made with Cricut's "Baby Steps fonts and welded, cut from the same cream paper scrap then inked.  I added a little bit of  sisal rope and inside I used a Stampabilities stamp that says "I thought of you today".

This card is made with scraps and freebies!  The stamp is from the latest issue of "Cardmaking and Papercraft" magazine, colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  The embossing folder is from the same issue and the printed paper is a freebie from an older issue.  Have I ever mentioned that I love that magazine?!?!  I lightly inked the edges of the white piece to really make the beautiful embossing stand out.  A little hand-tied sheer ribbon double bow and it's finished!

Thanks for stopping by and I think I'll see if I can join a few challenges this week.

Do Small Things card

Happy Tuesday!  It's time for Team A's new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by The Cutting Cafe and we have Photo Inspiration:

 I love these colors and if you can't read the sentiment in the bottom corner, well, it's on my card!

I've used our sponsors image "One Spring Day 6" colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, a fun card cut from Cricut, some gems from The Paper Studio and wrote the sentiment using the writing function on my Cricut Explore.  I LOVE THAT!!!

Just a cute, fun card that I really enjoyed making.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown!!!

My First Spring Wreath!

I made my first Spring Wreath!  

The "Welcome" cut is a Cricut cut that originally said "Welcome Baby" but I sliced it.  It was so much fun and I really like how it turned out, so I just had to share it with you!

A Koala Hello

Well, I'm late sharing my DT project for Tuesday Throwdown again, but this time it really isn't my fault!  We took a lightening strike to the phone lines in our area and I have been without phone or internet for about 10 days!  So here is my card that is made completely with diecuts I had set back in my "tidbits" box (diecuts I made and then decided not to use on that project)  They are all Cricut cuts, but I can't tell you where they came from.

The theme at Tuesday Throwdown this week is "Tropical Critters" and we are sponsored by

I really like this cute little koala!  I've printed it twice, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and used a second layer on her face and hands.  You can't really see it in this picture, but it has some nice dimension.  The background paper doesn't show up very well, but it has little hula girls all over it. and says "Aloha".

I'm going to enter these challenges this week:

Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
