Well there has been a rash of twin babies born and the second sketch seemed so appropriate for this card!!! I used New Arrival . I used my cuddlebug to do a little embossing and ink and doodled and lots of pop dots!!! I can't imagine having twins myself and think parents of twins need to be very special parents to handle two at the same time don't you!!! Thanks for looking!!!

I have been totally enjoying the sketches you all have put up for the weekly challenges'
I used A Childs Years for this sketch and Uti'd up a flower I had inked and viola` A Mother's Day card !!!
Mother and child was cut at 3 inches (shadow and regular pop dotted of course!!)
My flower is a silk flower I had that i embossed with heavy embossing power with glitter in it and a little pearl brad and cut flower in center. If you look closely i used three pearls on right
corner. I turned to the computer for the sentiment to get the right font for my card.

This card has been floating around in my mind for some time!!! I wanted the musical notes but couldn't remember which cart they were on, when in a post someone mentioned using JOTS. I am tyring to build up my stash of cards!!! I used the little birdie couple from Sweethearts cart cut at 3 inches and layered and popped many times. I the sentiment is computer generated!!! and the frame is also from sweethearts (the license plate). Let me know what you think I so like reading your comments!!!!

Well You Tube is such a source of inspiration and information for me!!! I find Creations with Cristine Wild Card Series so jammed pack and sure makes my life easier when I get in the mood to try out some of these different cuts on theWild Card Cartridge !
Below is a link to all the wonderful videos you can watch and get inspired by:
The above cards can be found on Page 57 in the Wild Card Manual!! It is done like a tri-fold card!! I cut this at 8 inches and had to do some trimming in order to get it to fit in the envelope that would only cut at 7 inches on my expression. (lesson learned if I wanted to make the envelope that is included with the card).
I also did some inking and used my computer for the sentiment inside!!! The butterflies are layered and puff painted and stickled! Cut a little slit and inserted ribbon for a little extra pazzazz!!! I had fun!

I soooooooooo scraplifted this from U Tube Video!!! I thought it was adorable!!! What a great idea to use the score pal for the cone look and the Happy Birthday embossing folder from Cuddlebug. I used a little dollar stamp and the chocolate and i just swirled a little stickles on the vanilla!! This is cut a 8" from the You can always use a Birthday Card in your stash!!!! I decided to check out the stash of cards that are in the SWEET TREATS cartridge. (and there are a bunch) Watching the utube videos online gave me a little nudge. I even tried my hand at center point to get the inside of the card done(once again new years resolution). this was cut at 6 inches and it fits a A6 envelope!!!! I am pretty pleased with how this turned out and as always leave some comments everyone like to know what people think of their work!! Sweet Treat Cartridge pg 35. It fits a 4x91/4 inch envelope. I used some rub-ons' i had for the sentiments. I loved following along and adding a little of my own touch to this video.

I have been really enjoying all the different cuts and characters on the Paisley Cartridge if you haven't noticed!! I bought the K & Company Valentine All in One paper pad and the papers are so great !!! (Double-sided a plus) This Little elephant holding a love letter was just crying out to me to do a little doodling and putting her on the paper required little to no work other than a few little stickers from the stash and a litte BE MINE stamp from the dollar bins and this card was finished!! Hope the rest of my Valentines go together as quickly and Pinky did!!!

Well our son got engaged last week and I wanted to welcome our future daughter in law to the family!!! I used the Paisley cart because Jen is so into cats!!! I blinged the card up a bit and tried my hand at using velium. I did heat emboss the sentiment but it didn't show up real well in the picture!!! I used ds to weld the purrfect using gypsy font saved as a gypsy file loaded into gypsy and cut went pretty well. Now i know how do that. Learn something new everyday!!!
