Thank You - Wild Card

Wow, the 'wild card' theme for this week took me a while... couldn't pin down a specific thing I wanted to do. I always need thank you's so here we are :)

So simple and easy to make that I am thinking I will make a few sets to have as quick gifts.

The flower border is from Holiday Cakes page 52 , cut at 1 inch from card stock from my stash. I added some dots and dashes with various gel pens.
The Many Thanks is from Wild Card ( had to do it, LOL ) page 42 and is cut at 5 inches from black card stock.
I made the card from Kraft card stock, sponged the edges with a brown ink and made a faux bow from white seam binding.
I am thinking these easy cards are going to need a cute box of some sort for giving as a set. Guess that will be my next project.

Hens and Chicks

For last weeks DT challenge we were asked to create any type of project using our Cricut and adding any form of hens and chicks. Being a complete country girl this is right up my alley.

All of the images on my card are from A Country Life cartridge.

As with most of my projects, I started by setting up the images and their layers on my Gypsy.

The sun and hills background and layers are cut at 3 inches

I laid out the papers and cut out.

The chickens and layers are cut at 1.75 inches.

I inked most of the edges before assembly. I made a background of light blue and tan to attach the hills to then added the chickens with dimensionals. The sentiment and butterfly stamps are from Close To My Heart.

A button, twine and some stitching lines and I called it done.
I hope you like my little taste of country life and come back to see what great projects my DT partners have for you.

For the Bride

 A very simple bridal shower card. I started with the bride-to-be's favorite color - Pink. The bride is from Everyday Paperdoll cut at 2.75 inches. The sentiment and punches are from Stampin Up. I inked the edges and added some liquid pearls and ribbon. Like I said... easy.

 As always, thanks for stopping by :)

Rain, Rain Go Away

Hello everyone, For this weeks theme at SweetSassyDiva  ~ Rain Rain Go Away ~ We are asked to have an umbrella and boots on our project. Well I was drawing a blank on a card or altering something..... so I bit the bullet and made my very first layout !!! I know, I can hardly believe it myself :)  First I called my daughter to see if she had any photos of the kids playing in the rain. She thought she did but was all excited to dress them up and send them out to play the next time it rains ! So there are no pictures in my layout, but I think you will be able to figure out where they will go.

The boots and splash are from Nate's ABCs and are cut at 2.75 inches. The umbrella is from Kate's ABCs and is cut at 2.75 inches.

The flowers - my new obsession - are from CTMH Art Philosophy and are cut at 2.75 inches.  I sponged the edges of all the cuts and attached them all with dimensionals . The papers and ribbon are from Stampin UP.

There you have it - my 1st layout! I hope you like it !
