Cut it Up Challenge # 41, "ATG", Crafty Catz #224 "ATG", Alphabet Challenge "D for Diecuts", HIMCR #143 "Freestyle", All Sorts Challenge #252 "Use Those Dies", The Squirrel and The Fox #66 "Inspired by a Book",

Wow, I haven't posted a new card in a while. It seems like I just can't find the time to craft like I want to.  I made this card for a childhood friend. I ordered this stamp especially for her. I tried to make a postage stamp cut around the image with the words, but no matter what I did I messed it up. I finally decided to leave well enough alone.....
I always have these visions in my head of how the card will look and it very seldom ever looks like the vision when it is complete. However, I do like how it came out and I can't wait to mail it to her.

The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge is "Inspired by a Book", I chose the book "Read all about It!" by Laura and Jenna Bush.

I combined this Digi Darla image with an image from Dearie Dolls to create this fun birthday card.
This card is to say farewell to Digi Darla's. They are closing their Challenge Blog. I really enjoyed their challenges and played often. I wish them luck!

Hi fellow crafters!  Here is a card I made with another Dearie Doll Image. Mary Ellen said that was a zero on the little boys shirt but I turned it in to an O for Ohio. I live in Ohio home of the Ohio State Buckeyes. I like how when I rounded the corners of the card it took on the look of an O too! I hope you like it!

That is why so many post in a short time. If my friend Silvi sees this post she might recognize the ribbon....

Ooh La La Creations Challenge #150 "Fashionista", Make My Monday "A Grown Up Card", Top Tip Tuesday "Stitching", Corrosive Challenges #193 "In Stitches", Dream Valley Challenges #76 "Vintage"

This is going to be my sisters birthday card. I haven't decided if I am going to put a sentiment on the front or not.  My sister earned her living repairing and dressing antique dolls. The buttons are some that she gave me from her stash. The image was a freebie from "Digital 2 for Tueday". They have some of the most wonderful vintage images. Check them out!
