February Week 5 "Gator B-Day"

Here is a Fun Gator Birthday card..I made this for a Florida Gator's simple. Inside is stamped with HAPPY BIRTHDAY, cause the front was so heavy..I didn't want to weigh it down anymore with added paper inside. I think this Gator fan will get a kick out of it :)

I Used:
Wausau cardstock
Create A Critter- Gator cut at 3"
Cuttlebug Folders- D'vine Swirl & Mesh
CTMH Dainty Thoughts Stamp set- Happy Birthday (inside of card/not shown)
SU Dimensionals
*card fits in a business size envie...I love making these size cards..I mailed this card out with two stamps..using Wausau cardstock(not sure of weight) ...if anyone is interested in Wausau cardstock, I buy mine at can get plain, texture, soft pastel colors, basic colors, all tans-browns-blacks-whites...This cardstock cuts great on the Cricut
**also had to move the cuttlebug folder after I ran it threw one time to make sure I get the entire length of the paper & gator...since cuttlebug folders are A2 size

I'm gonna try an work on a Birthday card for a friends little girl sometime this week..Today while at Target I got to thinking do I really want to make a yes I said that eeek...So I bought one just so if I decide to not make one..that will be the first card in a long time that I bought...haha..but the mom an them are really not into the homemade :( so we shall see :)

Thanks for all the Great Comment..hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Hugs, Sheena

February Week 4 "Baby Girl"

Here is a cute Baby Girl card...this was kind of time consuming..I used my Fiskars shape template to make 4 different size circles..I then cut out little squares and made them into a quilt like pattern on the circles that were scrap so I had an idea where to put each square so it wasn't messed up..that was the time consuming part. I think it turned out really cute..and I can't wait to make more cards like this.

I Used:
Bazzill cardstock
DCWV-Baby print pattern paper
Me& My Big Ideas- Plaid pattern paper
New Arrival cart-outfit, stroller, & flowers-size of outfit & stroller are 2" flowers are 3/4" & 1/2"
Studio G ink
CTMH Sweet Baby stamp set
Cuttlebug-Swiss Dots
SU Dimensionals
White gel pen
**not a A2 size card**
*sorry the lighting is bad, its raining here today..I took like 10 pictures and this turned out to be the best one :(

Thanks for all the great comments!!

Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hello everyone..I hope everyone had a great week..I know here it has warmed up a little bit, but they are saying it will be cold again starting tomorrow..According to our weather man he said there is a good chance for a foot of snow(over time) before spring gets here. I love the snow and cold, but I am over it just makes me lazy and in one them blah moods. So I figured I try out the Throwback Thursday Challenge this week..this week you had to use the Walk in my Garden cart..or if you don't have that cart use one that is older and the project must have a Flower on it. Walk in my Garden is one of the carts I don't have yet. I used P Schoolbook. Here is my entry..I wanted something that said I cut out a bunch of flowers in two shapes and just made the card look like a garden of flowers.

I Used:
Wausau cardstock
P Schoolbook cart-Flowers
White gel pen
Black sharpie pen
**the purple seems really dark in this pic..I used 3 shades of Purple..2 shades of Pink...and a off White shade for the flowers..
*A2 size size range from 1/5" to 1 1/5"
**I know this card seems boring :( but I have been in a creative slump..while making this card I came up with some good ideas for later while making this one I had to draw up some other cards so I wouldn't forget my ideas :)

Thanks for the comments..Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

New Look!!

Hello Everyone...I hope you are staying in and not out in this nasty Winter storm..we are getting another round of Rain/Ice/Snow...right now as I type..I got really bored today and got to looking at my blog..I loved the background I had before, but my layout just wasn't working..I had so many little buttons on the right side, my blogger page was so took me forever to try an figure out how to mess with my blog(since they changed everything awhile back). So I got to looking around an playing around..I have a old blog that I never use/shared so I just played with it first...til I got what I wanted..Let me know what everyone thinks?? So far I like it..its kinda simple, but still has some of my flower style I like :)

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week, and that this Winter storm is gone soon :)
