Dads Birthday Card(s)

My Dads Birthday is coming up next month so I figured I get a head start on a card. Well when I started the first one(first pic) I was like hmmm I might make another for him also. So I came up with card two(second pic).

See my Dad is going to be turning 50 but he says 20...every year for his Birthday we be like so dad how old are ya this year(we know how old) he says 16, 17, 18, 19, and this year 20. He said he doesn't feel like he is turning 50..and he doe
sn't look it either. My Dear Dad is a hard working man..he works hard for what he has, he takes care of what he owns and appreciates it. He has a lot of Pride and cares a lot about his family. I look up to my Dad..He is the Greatest in my book!

So here is the Cards

I used First Card:
Wausau Cardstock( got this at Target) I forget who on the Cricut MB said this paper cuts so smooth on the Circut but cause of her post I looked one day while I was at Target bought a pack an WOW!!! I think I no longer like textured cardstock(that is all I used before besides CTMH cardstock) I love this cardstock...
DCWV cardstock/pattern
CTMH cardstock
pop dots/
for the fish
WC cart/for grass/cat tails
PB/fish, fishing pole, and fish net

I used Second Card:
Wausau Cardstock
Making Memories/
pattern paper(Just Chillin)
Mickey Font/for 50 & 20
pop dots/for 50 & 20

I think my dad will like both these cards. Especially the 50/20 card.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Shape/Cut out book

Here is just the start of a Book I am working on that has all the Cricut Carts I have. Right now I have PS cart done and started PB cart. I was really bored one day so I decided to use a pack of 8x8 paper I got from WM for like $5 that I knew I would really never use.I also got the book from WM in the scrapbook section I think I paid $6 for it. The paper inside is thick. A very nice book. Most of the cuts are either 2inches or 2.5 inches some may be smaller or bigger.

Now for Font carts I say I will only cut out a Letter in each style Italic etc. and a number. Instead of cutting out one number in each size. I will also cut out all the shapes to know what they look like when cut.

I have already used PS cart to see what size of a font or number I would need so I don't waste any good paper.

Thanks for Looking!

Birthday Card 1st Birthday

I made this card for my nephews 1st Birthday...they are doing his party in Mickey Theme. They are also huge Disney fans.

I used
Mickey Font Cart
Mickey & Friends Cart
several brands of cardstock
Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Pop Dots

Letters & Numbers(there is a -1- inside of card)-MF cart
Mickey heads(made as balloons),Stars & Mickey-M&F cart
Background is Happy Birthday CB folder

I also noticed that the glue runner I have Ad Tech I think..does not hold very well on embossed paper so I had to go back and re glue with my two-way glue..much better now.

I will also be decorating the wrapping paper of his gift with Mickey. I will post pics of that when I get his gift picked out...still looking :)

I Love these two new carts I picked up. I say right now they are my Favorite :)

Thanks for Looking..Have a great weekend everyone!
