Shaped Thank You Card

I haven't been able to enter the BBTB2 challenge for a while and was determined to do so when I saw this weeks challenge - create a shaped card.  I was in need of a simple thank you card and went in search of a chunky 'Thank You' in Design Space to use on my card.  I found 'Thanks A Bunch' on the Wild Card 2 cart and brought it onto my canvas.

Then it was easy peasy lemon squeezy to duplicate the shadow layer and flip it to make the back of the card.  I moved the two images until the T's overlapped and found that I had to add two small rectangles between the two h's and the two k's so that my card would fold.  Here's the welded shape.





Since it said "Thanks a Bunch" I chose to embellish it with rolled flowers cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart.  (Wild Card 2 uses bananas wouldn't that would be fun?)  Wild Card 2 has tons of sentiments that can be made into shaped cards, so I can see myself adding a few to my stash.





Pop over to the BBTB blog and look at some of the other fun shaped cards.  I love Brenda's birdcage and Carolyn's Frozen castle.    Thanks for visiting with me today.  : ) Christine

Valentine Treats - Part Deux

There are SO many adorable animal cuts on my Cricut carts and I obviously need more DGKids!  (hint! hint!)  I finally decided on this sweet mama kangaroo and her joey because of the heart shaped balloon.  This cut is from Birthday Bash and I think that I'll use the card key and replicate mama kangaroo on G's Valentine card. Should be a cute card for a cute DGD!







Since my head was full of cute 'holder' ideas, I thought that I would cut the baby from Baby Steps and have him holding a basket of goodies and a gift card for an upcoming baby shower.  Again, the heart border holding the box - all the baskets I have in my stash were too large - is cut from Paper Trimmings and the flowers are from Art Philosophy.  Inconsistent, I know, but somehow I don't mind his huge head!







I am linking my big-headed baby in the Bitten by the Bug 2 Baby Challenge

and this week's Exploring Cricut  Cricut Choice challenge - use the color blue, two Cricut cuts and patterned paper.


Now I'm off to pick up Master J for the afternoon.  Hope you have a fun day, too!   Thanks for visiting with me.  : ) Christine

Valentine Treats Part 1!

 I was wandering around the aisles at Freddy's looking for Valentine candy for the DGKids.  There were the CUTEST heart shaped boxes of candy attached to the CUTEST stuffed animals and I was so tempted to buy them!  But, really, S and G and even J,  have bedrooms full of stuffies and have no room for any more.  Then it occurred to me that I could create a paper animal that would look just as cute since I have a gazillion carts!

My first thought was Teddy Bear Parade and the way Nadia morphed them into other animals - here
but I really, really, really don't like the bear's big head.



Her paws are holding a heart border cut from Paper Trimmings and the flowers are from Art Philosophy.   Back to the drawing board, as they say!

 I found this panda on Animal Antics and cut her out after 'hiding' the vacuum cleaner.  I DO like this one. 
I used three different patterned papers for the flowers so that I could enter my panda in the FCCB  Challenge # 195  Mix and Match








Again, I apologize for the quality of the photos since I took the pictures this evening and my DD, who was lending me her Lightbox to see if I like it, has not brought it up yet!!!!!

I'll be back with Part 2, tomorrow!  Thanks for visiting with me.  : ) Christine
