Fab & Funky. They are being sponsored by Soft Pencil this month so I chose a Soft Pencil digi for my card. This sweet little girl has a flower for you. I printed her a second time on the flowered paper from Cardmaker's Creative Pack (HOTP) and pieced her dress and hair bows. It gives an effect that plain markers cannot. The sentiment: God Bless is cut from pink Oh My Vinyl with the Cricut Expression cartridge: Life is a Beach. The pink paper roses are from Paper Wishes. The lattice punch I believe is Martha Stewart and I backed it with a pink border strip (DCWV).
Character Cafe Challenge this week is part of their blog hop for new releases. The beaver is a freebie, but I saw a lot of really nice digis. Must go back after payday! Again I used paper from Cardmaker's Creative Pack from HOTP, some teal ribbon I bought in bulk on ebay a couple of years ago and lettering in Oh My Vinyl gold cut with the Cricut Expression cartridge: Life is a Beach. This card could be for any age, for birthday, Father's Day or just because.
The 3rd Challenge is Crafty Catz. The requirement is black & red. Zee the Zebra is a Sew Many Cards image. Since zebras are black and white, it seemed a good place to start. The BP came from an HOTP Cardmaker's Classic Creative Pack. I added some silver Dazzles also from HOTP and an acrylic sentiment tile from JoAnn's: "Live it Up". I don't do much in black & white but I really liked the way this one came out. I hope you do too.
Sorry for putting so much in one post, but Blogger was down since last night and just came back up late afternoon. I was crafting all day except for a trip to WalMart for groceries so I wanted to get these posted and entered into their challenges. Hope you have had a productive day also.
