Boy Congratulations

So my ex-boss asked me to make a baby boy card for one of his current employees. So this is one of 3 cards I made for him to choose from….he picked this one!

I’m sure I’m the only one that still HAS this paper! It was perfect for the sketch Karen used in the July Inspirational Card Challenge – Sketch Category. The patterned paper was punch in squares to get the images.

1) July Inspirational Card Challenge – Sketch Category. Original Sketch by Studio Calico found here:

Patterned Paper: My and My Big Ideas
Cardstock: Bazzill (Parakeet, lemonade)
Accents/Tools: 7/8″ square punch, pop dots, xyron x

Today Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring the challenge over at Crafty Girlz Challenge which is Anything Goes with optional twist of Bewitched! I’m into the fun side of Halloween so that is what I went with.

Okay I didn’t even know Disney had a new character until one of the ladies at the Doctor’s Office asked for a Doc McStuffins Birthday Card for her 4 year old daughter. Well I found this picture on the internet and cut Lambie out so I wouldn’t have the background. I used Stella Says Sketch #204 as my inspiration.

I decided to make a card with Baby Blessings as a friend of mine is a grandma for the  first time! The small buttons from Lasting Impressions are perfect for this digital image.

I hadn’t made an easel card in a real long time so decided it was time to make one!

Circles everywhere!!


Today at For Fun Challenges we are challenging you have LOTS of circles on your project! Let’s see how many you can use. You can use paper with circles on it, embellishments in the shape of a circle or even scalloped circles. I have a total of 17 circles!!


1) For Fun Challenges – CIRCLES and lots of them!!

2) Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Create a card or project that uses both dark and light. Opposite colors; black/white, brown/ivory, deep blue/baby blue, red/pink etc.

I let the paper do the light and dark color combination. I hope that counts!

3) Day 8 at 365Cards – How do you feel about circles?  We want to see them all over your card. Specifically, let’s see a minimum of 10 circles. You can use circle punches, buttons, any round embellishments that pass as circles.

4) CAS-ual Fridays – CFC43: Clean And Simple creations with a Sentiment as the Focal Point. Hope this is CAS enough.

5) Daring Cardmakers – Challenge Tessellation –    create a card featuring a tessellating pattern. You can probably remember doing tessellation in math class at school right? Basically all you’re doing is making a pretty pattern with shapes that fit together perfectly on all sides, like tiling. It’s up to you how you interpret the dare so it could be a pattern on a paper already made or even a pattern you make yourself, have fun!

I hope the pattern of the quilt fits this. If not let me know and I will erase it from the challenge.

Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, floss, buttons, rick rack, 3/4″ EK Success circle punch
