GCC0413 - You make my day bright and April Showers

It's Monday so that means there is another challenge posted over at the Outlawz. Come on and join in on the fun. This week, the theme is Rainbows and/and or rain.

The Sponsor this week is Decosse's Dynamite Doodles and I absolutely loved the paper bundle we had to choose from. I couldn't decide so asked Lisa to provide me with both. I love the rainbow and raindrop papers and the raincoat and rain boots. I had an idea for each as soon as I saw the paper selections. I changed one of the patterned banners after I posted it last night. I kept looking at it and it didn't feel right. I wanted to use red for the rain boots on the chic (and had a scrap just the right size sitting on my desk that was perfect in size) so felt it needed one more pop of red in the card. I used this card for the rainbow card and this card for the raincoat card as my inspiration.

Supplies:
Papers: Neenah, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles (rainbow, raindrops, rain coat, rain boots), The Paper Studio, Mira Mi, Amy Tangerine, SU daffodil, SU blue, SU brilliant blue, Bazzill (red, orange for chic and sun, white for clouds).

GCC0316 - smile

It's Monday so that means there is a new challenge posted over at the Outlawz.

This week,  the sponsor is: All Dressed Up Stamps and the image is: too good to eat cakes. The theme is ribbons and bows. 

This card didn't start out with this idea. I  couldn't get the idea to work out the way I had it in my head so I changed to this. I didn't want to just tie a bow so I used ribbon as my background. That was kind of fun and I like the way it came out. I cut the edges of the ribbon so added clear glue to the edges so the ribbon didn't ravel or fray. I used Glossy Accents on the cake frosting to give the design more dimension.

Celebrate Alex and Tim

I made this card for my director and her husband. They are having a belated holiday party and have invited our entire team. They are avid golfers so we are getting them a round of golf at The Players Club (golf course where the Waste Management Open is held every year) as their house warming gift. I'm sure they will really enjoy that.

I used my Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I think the CAC cartridges are just fantastic. What cute images. I'm so thankful I found both of them at a reasonable price. The bling on her hat is orange and matches the paper in real life. I used the deconstructing sketch - DS187

Happy Birthday Kim

It's my friend Kim's birthday today. I didn't think I was going to have time to get in my craft room last night, but I did. Kim loves raccoons and the color purple so this will be perfect for her. I just love my Create a Critter and Create a Critter 2 cartridges. These little critters are just too cute. Hopefully, she'll love it. Luckily, I'm handing this to her in person. It's way too thick to mail. My friend Jen's card was returned to me for not enough postage so I'm safe to assume it was too thick. It sure wasn't heavy. :(.

I used this card from Pinterest as my inspiration.
