January: Week 3 Card "Birthday"

I think all is going well so far with my weekly card challenge for myself. I hope I can keep it up ;) ...I made this Birthday card for my sister..she just joined to be a member of the ASPCA..She loves her animals, especially Cat/ I figured I go with that type of theme for her card..ASPCA colors are Orange, Grey & on this card I made a basket type weave for the background, with two different Orange pattern papers. This is my first time trying the basket weave, so I kinda messed up in a few spots, but I think it turned out cute. The cat on the front kinda looks like my sisters cat she adopted from a local shelter. I think she will really like this card :)

I Used:
DCWV flower shower stack-pattern papers
Wausau cardstock
Create A Critter cart-Cat, Happy Birthday
Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder
SU Dimensionals
White gel pen

*again I took the pic with some craft items in the background. Still debating if I like that or not :)

Thanks for Looking & all the Great comments! Welcome all my new followers :)

January: Week 1 Card

Hello everyone, so in my last blog post I mentioned I would like to at least make one card a week. I would have posted this Monday the 3rd, but I have been under the weather. Now with this challenge that I give myself, I will title the weekly cards by this week will be "January: Week 1 Card". This is to just make it easier so if I do any other challenges or make any other cards through the week. If there is anyone else out there who would like to join in on the challenge please go ahead join in..I wanted to start this challenge to just use my craft supplies more, rather it be my Cricut, Stamps, Ribbon etc. I will try my hardest to have one card a week. If I know I won't be able to make a card one week, I'll make two the week before and just post one card for one an one for the other..hope that makes sense. I'm still a little out of it from being sick.

I Used:
Wausau cardstock
DCWV Flower Shower Stack
Pooh & Friends-Butterfly, Clouds
CTMH stamp-Thanks

**this card can fit in a business size envelope**

Thanks for looking & all the great comments!
