Wedding Box

The challenge at Cut it Up is Wedding Bells.  I saw this card box in the silhouette online store and  wanted to make it but really  didn't have a reason. But because of the challenge and a friend's daughter is getting married in December I decided to go ahead and cut it now.  It is very cute but has lots of little pieces and was ALOT of  work.  I hope Jessica  enjoys it when I give it to her.

Sea turtles

Earlier  today I used the From the Heart Sketch to complete several challenges to include the From the Heart  challenge. After I posted it I remembered that I  was  supposed to use one of their images sooooo  here is my second attempt at  getting it right.  I actually like this one better anyway.  I've used this sea turtle several times already but I really do like him.


I finally decided to tackle the sketch at From the Heart and combined it with the friends challenge at Eureka Stamps and this is my idea of  bright funky  colors so it should work for the Incy Wincy  challenge as well.

Animal boxes

I am  having  dinner with friends tonight.  they have three small children who are always excited about what I'm going to bring them. Tonight they are getting these animals  boxes with Smarties in them for their after dinner treat. I am also using it for the Sweet and Sassy animal Challenge.

Silhouette Challenges has  a create your own shape card Challenge this  month.  My sister and I took a  simple shape  we  found in the online  store and made a card out of it.  We've  done
this several times already so it  didn't take us long  to get it done. I liked the way it turned out but it  is a little too  big for  the standard envelope so next time I will cut it down just a little bit more.

July 4th

I only had a few minutes to play this morning so I chose this  quick card from the silhouette online store.  It  cut super great and  was so easy to put together.  I decided it needed a bit more sparkle so I added  some glitter, which I will wear  for the rest of the day because I make  sucha mess with it. I will be using this card  for several challenges.

My   sister and I  spent  part of  our evening on ooVoo creating this  manly card. it should fit well in the CAS-ual Friday's what a catch challenge and the Digi Sketch challenge ( that's  says  either the sketch or a manly card)  and the Sketch Saturday Challenge. Craftin Desert Divas also has a favorite  color challenge.  Blue is definitely one of my favorite  colors.

Father's Day

I made this  pop  card for my DAD on  father's Day and forgot to post it. But it is still in time for  the Glitter n' Sparkle Father's Day challenge.  The  challenge at Clear it Out is anything  goes.  I used a lot of scraps to create this card and I had a few left over tools before I even started  cutting so that should make me qualify.

Beach Box Card

I simply love these  box cards! They go together so easily and  have so much potential as for their uses.  There are several challenges I want to use this box card for.

 Creative Cutting , Love to Create, Simon Says and  QKR stampede  each have anything  Goes challenges.
Catch the Bug 's  and Get Inky's and   each have a  Summertime theme for their challenge.
Lori Whitlock also has a box card challenge. 
Sweet and Sassy's challenge this  week is fun at the beach.  This  should certainly fit for that.

The Challenge at Little Miss Muffett this week is anything goes so I chose this darling little gal  named  Katie. Then I used the Saturday Sketch  so that I could also enter that challenge.  Sweet and Sassy has a Child's Play.  Glittern'Sparkle's Challenge is  Cute!

Teddy Cookie

In a  rush to get a  couple more challenges done.  Today I used the sketch from Meljen Design to complete their challenge and I did it in Monochromic colors to meet the challenge at Repeat Impressions.

Bear Sailor

I am  not a  fan of  cards with a  black base.  The Challenge at Clear it Out is  black  with stickers.  At a stamp convention recently I  bought some nautical silver leaf stickers.  So I decided  now was the perfect time to use some of them.  I  also intend to use this card for the Die  Cutting Divas One for the Boys challenge.  Curtain Call  also has a Something Simple challenge.

Country Girl

I've been  on vacation and  came back today in a rush to get several challenges  done.  I've had this  cute little gal on my desk for a while  and decided she would fit perfectly in the  Wild hair challenge at Throwdown Tuesday.  I used the What if Wednesday sketch to help get that out of the list of  to do's for today.  Party Time Tuesday and Crafty Catz both have an Anything Goes Challenge.
