GCC0223 - eat cake

It's a new week and since it's the last Monday of the month, we have the Anything Goes theme over at the Outlawz. Come on over and join in on the fun.

Our Sponsor this week is Robin's Fetish. The image is Celebration Cake. I always seem to need a last minute birthday card so this worked perfectly. I paper pieced the cake and used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #174 (FMS174). I colored the candles and flames with Copic Markers. I used SU iridescent ice on the frosting and Glossy Accents on the candles and flames. The scallop circle, cake, and sentiment are all popped up for 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

It's another new week over at the Outlawz. This week, our theme is "inchies". We are to use at least two one inch squares on our project.

Our Sponsor this week is: DeeDee's Digis. My image is: Daniel's Sweetheart. Isn't this image the cutest? I paper pieced all the pieces. I've really gone back to paper piecing the last few weeks. I love the different ways you can use digi's. Hop on over to DeeDee's to grab yourself a digi stamp. I only used half my stamp so it showed only hugs since the ducks are hugging :).

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.
