Creative Card Crew #76 "Birthday and Sentiment", Sister's of Craft "ATG",

Hello, I'm back again. I have been making lots of cards, but have not found time to post them. I made this Birthday card for a friend last month. I have lots of Christmas cards made. Perhaps I will be able to post them this coming weekend. Soon the holiday season will be over and we can move on to making Valentine's. Geeeesh!

Sister Act #82 ATG, A-Crafty-Mess #1 ATG, Crafting by Design November ATG, Paper Take Weekly ATG, Party Time Tuesday #188 ATG

I can not believe that the last time I posted a card was in July. So much has happened since then. My husband and I found new jobs, bought a new house and relocated. It has been crazy trying to square things away with cell service and internet.
Now, I am going to attempt to take up where I left off. I actually made this card for a dear friend who's birthday was in July. I made the card and never found time to post it. I won this image from Lady Bug Digi's, this one is "Dog Walker Nikki". 
My friend lives in the country and every time one of her family members decides they can't take care of their own dog for on reason or another, the dog ends up at my friends house. When my husband and I visit them and take our dog, there are 5 dogs running around. It is crazy....but we love all of the dogs. The big black dog in the image represents our dog "Tucker". I hope you enjoy my card. It feels great to be back!

Creative Knockouts #45 "Sew it Up-Lacy Sunshine", Red Rubber Inspirationals #128 "ATG", Crafty Girls #22 "ATG", Crafty Creations #267 "Let's Party", Seema Crafts "Child's Birthday July"

I love these bright colors. I was going to put a sentiment in the right top corner, but I like how the green paper kind of looks like it is peeling away. I decided not to cover that up. I used two Whipper Snapper stamps for this card and colored with Copics. I hope you enjoy the finished product.

This card is made with a Digi Darla image. They no longer have the blog but I always loved their images. I hope you enjoy my card and it is great to be back!!!

Allsorts #255 "Birds and Feathers", Crafty Calendar "Things with Wings", My Sheri Crafts #131 "A Moment of Laughter", Open Minded Crafting Challenge #8 "Easter or Pastel Colors", Sister Act #53 "ATG", Stampin' for the Weekend "Favorite Stamp"

Wow, It has been almost a month since I posted my last card.  I had a 9 day stretch at work, so when I finally had a day off I had to clean the house. It has been hard to find the time to craft. I made this card for a cousin who is an exercise fanatic. I thought this Penny Black Stamp was adorable. I think she will love it.

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.

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!

Craft Room Challenge "Age of Aquarius", Digi Darla #98 "Alphabet Challenge", Kaboodle Doodle #207 "Use Blue", One Stitch at a Time #196 "Use a Digi", My Sheri Crafts #125 "Delightful Digi's", A Gem of a Challenge #111 "For the Boys"

Hi Crafters, This card is made using a Digi Darla Image. They are having an Alphabet challenge this week. I tried a couple of new things on this card. Faye over at the Fluffery always free hands some doodles on her cards, so I tried it. It seems like I have been stuck in a rut using basically the same layout all the time so I cut a hole in the blue paper and positioned my image behind it. I also did not put a bow on my card. I like it and hope you do too......

 These are cards I made using pictures of my great neice. I decided not to enter them in any challenges but I still wanted to share them. I think they turned out very cute. I left the inside blank so her mom can either send them or keep them. What do you think?
