Whimsical Garden fence

From the Heart's Monthly challenge was this cute little garden gate. You can't really see it but I popped the yellow flowers out  to give them some depth.  Then added a flower I had left over from another project to the side.  Thanks From the Heart for the great images.

Imagine that Mom

I'm  going on vacation next week and needed to get this done before I left.  I decided a  quick rocker card would work!  Thanks imagine that for all your freebies!  I am submitting this card in the Imagine that monthly challenge.

Golf bag

I saw this  golf  bag in the Silhouette Online store and wanted to cut it  immediately.  I know  a couple  golfers who will be getting this card real soon.  It was  ALOT of  layers and  took some time to put together but I think it turned out real  nice. I will use it in the Crafty Catz Sports Challenge.

Up in the Air

I , like everyone else, have  fallen in love  with these cute little box cards.  I saw  this one in the silhouette online store and  just couldn't wait to make it. It should fit perfectly in the Up  in the Air challenge at Eureka Stamps.  I simply love these great little box cards!    I think this is also  a  good card  for the Friendship challenge at Love to create.

Paper Shelter Girlie Girl

Instead of printing and coloring this sweet paper shelter  image I decided to print her as she was  and  cut her with my Silhouette.  Not real sure what happened to the color on my camera but the deep purple paper I used for the outside oval and the butterflies appears  more blue  here.  Just a  sweet card to send to someone to let them know I was thinking of them. I will use this card for the Girlie Girl challenge at The Paper Shelter as well.

I  was in a  rush to complete the Mom challenge at Meljen's Design.  Seems I just cant keep up with  my to do list these days!  This  didn't  turn out nearly as stunning as I had  hoped but oh well better luck next time.  I used the digital apron stamp from meljen and paper pieced it with a patterned paper.

The  challenge  at Little Tangles is Peach and Mint.  The  flower is really a cool peachy color  but looks  much darker  here.  I used the sketch at Saturday Sketch so that I could also use it in that challenge.

Pink tulips

I needed a  feminine Birthday card so this is what I am using.  I will also use it for the Curtain Call  Pink Challenge.

Flower Pot Easel

I made this sweet easel card a few days ago and hadn't  gotten around to posting it.  I will use it now for the Scrappy Mom's flower challenge.  I love its  colors.

Tweet Bird

Sweet N' Sassy has a  challenge this week with Birds.. I made this  card a few  days ago and hadn't posted it so I will use it for their challenge. Repeat Impressions also has  a Bird Challenge.

Meljen Butterflies

Meljen Designs has an Anything  Goes Challenge this week.  I am so glad winter is finally over and  butterflies are flittering around everywhere.  So I chose this image to make this swing card.

Cake Carrier

I've wanted to decorate my cake carrier for along while! Finally I got it  done.  We will use this for all our fantastic  tail gate parties during the upcoming football season.  I was  able to use the print and  cut feature of my silhouette  to cut my image and the monogram as well.  This should work well in the 2 Creative Chicks use a  food container challenge.

Dump Truck

A few days ago Silhouette Online posted these  cute little construction vehicle cards.  they are interactive meaning the bed actually  "dumps' and the  wheels  turn.  I knew when I saw it I had the perfect little  guy to send it to.  Landon is 7 and loves his Tonka dump trucks.  I can also use this in the  Simon Says Challenge which is focus on  5.  I used 5 different papers.

Mother's Day

I've been sick for  quite a few days and  haven't felt up to doing much of anything.  Today I decided maybe I could stay  awake long enough to cut something.  This card was a mistake because everyone of those  tiny  squares had to be hand punched after it was  cut.  it truly  tested  what little patience  I had.
I will be using it for the following challenges.

Cut It Up
Love to Create
Craft Spot
Get Inky
Creative Cutting
Crafting Desert Divas
QKR Stampede
Tuesday Throwdown

Bee Happy

My Craft Spot has a Black and White and one other color challenge. I've been waiting to use my Bee embossing folder for a while so now was my chance.  I wasn't quite satisfied with this card  and may change it later but this is what it is for now.!
