Wacky Wednesday #23-Color Challenge

This is my first Wacky Wednesday Challenge at More Than Favors.  The challenge is to use the colors pink, green and brown.   I cut the boot from the Paisley cart and the flowers were cut from Pagoda.  These were actually the second set of flowers that I picked out to use.  The first bunch looked atrocious when I started putting the card together.  I hate that!  I have something in mind and then it just doesn't look right when I put it together.  But I think these flowers turned out pretty cute.  :)

Challenge Me Monday #44

This is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #44.  I chose to use my poor neglected Pagoda cart.  :(  I also used some dazzles which I have had forever and never used.  I made this card for my mom, hopefully she won't check out my blog before I give it to her.

Embroidered Valentine's Banner

 I decided against another wreath on my front door.  So... I made a felt banner and embroidered it with ribbon.  It took me about three evenings in front of the TV to do all the hand work but it was worth it.  
This little wooden ornament I picked up from Michael's in one of their dollar bins was my inspiration.  I wanted to cut all the intricate details but they were just too small to make it work.  
As I was stitching the hearts on I decided to stuff them for some added dimension.  I used 1/8th inch satin ribbon for the flowers and stems.

Challenge Me Monday #42 at Fantabulous Cricut

"Winter warmies" is the challenge this week.  I used the Gingerbread cart for the hat base and Paisley for the flowers that made the pom-pom at the top.  :)

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #41

I haven't had a chance to participate in one of the challenges for over a month because of nasty germs running through our house.  :(  We were all healthy by Christmas though.  Yay!  
  So here's my submission for this weeks challenge.    I used the Winter Lace cart for the snowflakes and the Trim A Tree cart for the ice skates.

My Pink Stamper Design Team 2011 Challenge

Here is my submission for the My Pink Stamper design team.  The challenge is to make something with your Cricut or Imagine with the colors pink, green and brown.  I hope you all like it.  I had fun making this card.  I love how the girl turned out, she's soo cute!
The recipe is:
Rock Princess  Keahi cut at 4 3/4 inches
Paper from The Paper Co.  for the girl and metallic paper effects by Canson for her crown
The green paper is also from The Paper Co.  
Embossed with Sizzix large snowball folder
The pink striped paper is a piece of scrap I had laying around
Bronze heart brad from Eyelet Outlet
Ribbons are basic spools from A.C. Moore
Sentiment is from an older stamp I have but I'm sure there are many sets that have this saying out there.  
And a little glitz on the crown.  :)


This is a test.  I have been having problems publishing pictures.  I've got it straightened out now.  :)
