Paper Cutz Challenge # 34

Here is the challenge:

For challenge # 34, make a card, LO or craft project for Easter using any colors, but no bunnies or chicks.

I used the tree from Wild Card cartridge, the eggs from Doodlecharms, and the butterfly is from Indie Art. I stamped it with the Easter stamps from Studio G. I think the Easter tree is so cute! I wish Easter eggs grew on trees!

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge # 25

I really wanted to challenge myself on this card, and completely think outside my normal card making. I found a really cute turtle ribbon, and designed my card around it. I used features and colors that I normally do not use, and I LOVE how it turned out! I think it turned out just so cute! I cut the turtle and the sea shell from Stretch your imagination, and was able to fit the perfect little peachy keen face stamp from PK-504.This challenge will be judged! (I'm crossing my fingers!!) Here is the Peachy Keen sketch that had to be followed:
Here is my card!!

CCC # 18

I am trying to keep up with the challenges! Here is the challenge:
Challenge # 18 is to make an Easter card using any cartridge(s) and any colors you'd like.
I love Easter, it reminds me that spring is on its way and it is so crisp and clean. (I live in Arizona so it really means 100++ weather is right around the corner!!)
Here is my card, sweet and clean!

I used doodlecharms for the basket and the eggs. I put the basket through the paper crimper to make it look like a wicker basket. I ran some of the eggs through the cuttlebug and used some ink in them the other I used glue and sparkle. Thanks for looking!

My Little Rebel

So I have two little chicks, 9 and 8... and my little one is my little rebel. She certainly keeps me on my toes. I recently picked up the Indie Art Cricut Cartridge because I love all the easy shapes, especially the skull and cross bones.
While she was at school this is what I made for her door:
She of course thought it was rockin' and cool. That is her... my little rebel in pink hair bows!
My older chick thought it was scary and asked me to replace it with a watermelon cut- out instead ! She went as far as finding the design in the stretch your imagination booklet!
Here is the card I made instead:

My chicks really are my inspiration! They give me so many ideas!
