Companion Challenge: Birthday Bash!

I made this Birthday card for a Friends father that turned 90 Years Old, what an accomplishment. This gentleman was in World War II and a pilot on a Bomber Plane. This card was so perfect for him. I did not see him open the card and his reaction, but from what I heard it is now on display on his fridge at home. He loved it!!

Surf's Up! Bitten by the Bug2 Challenge

Bitten by the Bug2 Life's a Beach Challenge....Lizard Cut. Life's a Beach is one of my Favorite Carts, I just love all the cuts on it especially the Lizard.

I used pop dots on the feet and positioned them in to make him look like he is raised up on the board. I curled his tail so that was sticking up too. Looks better in person then the picture.

You Rock-Teen Card

It's been a while since I entered a Challenge. This Teen card is for Cricut Cardz Challenge #36, make a teen birthday card using any cartridge or color you'd like.

Sorry if the pictures did not come out well. I found it hard to photograph the card due to the silver cardstock and it was raining outside, so had to take it indoors. I made this card for my Son's birthday this week. He likes things like this and if you've seen his room you will know this is perfect for him.

I Love Butterflies............this one is cute from Live Simply using scraps from The Blossoms & Butterflies stack from DCWV.

The top card was an inspiration from Kristina Werner in A Year in Cards-July 2010. Cards with repetition, I used vellum paper on the bottom and stamped the butterflies in repetition. The paper used on both cards was from The Blossoms & Butterflies stack from DCWV and Paper Trey Inc cardstock.

I just love this paper from Creative Imaginations. I made these two cards and the retirement card in July using the same line.
I made this card using the Create a Critter Cart. One of my good friends lost her cat recently and I thought maybe this would cheer her and her boys up.
