R for Rose

I just love challenges!! I can't help but to try out everyone I see! It keeps me inspired, helps me to create and challenge myself!!

I have wanted to do the rose from Walk in my Garden for over a year! And now because of this challenge I tried it!

Alphabet Challenge: R for Roses

Walk in my Garden for the rose and Stretch Your Imagination for the frame.

My Pink Stamper Challenge

My Pink stamper is having a challenge:

Challenge: Make a Winter card, scrapbook page, or other craft item with your Cricut and share it here on the Inlinz link.

What great timing! I had my Create A Critter in and loaded so I made this cutie penguin!

I also used my drippy goo punch for ice-cycles and added some stickles. The stamp is from KI Memories. The paper is from K&Co and The flowers are from Prima.

Digital images!

When My Halloween pumpkin card was picked over at the BBTB2, I won three free images from
Shelly's images! Check out her store here!
I have never used a digital image before so I am excited to try it out!
Here is what I picked
:Please leave any tips and tricks on how to use these!

I can't believe that I have had this cartridge and never used it!

Here is my entry:

She is cut at 3 3/4" I cut her wings out in pink and then again in vellum to make them look real... I used my gelly roll pens for her face.
I think she is cute! All my paper is from scraps and the ribbon is Joann's

Crafting with Cristina Challenge

I found this cool blog while hopping around! I love challenges so I could not pass this one up!

Crafting with Cristina Challenge - Birthday

Here is my entry:

I used create a critter for the bird, swiss dots to emboss her wing, my scallop punch, some bling for her eye. This paper is from a swap that I did with a friend, the ribbon and flowers are from my stash, stamp is from punny-licious! I think it is so cute!

More Than Favors Challenge

More Than Favors Challenge # 6 Sports....

Ok so this is my LEAST favorite theme!! I dislike sports and I do not know anything about any sport! I actually had to research on line what the color of the baseball stitching was so I could make it correct! And a very good friend of mine gave me the baseball cartridge which I never even opened until now!

But the timing was perfect another friend of mine asked me to make her a baseball card that she could give as a thank you note!

Here it is:
I used the baseball cartridge for the ball and mitt, I hand cut the triangle and square to make it look like a field. I had to decorate the inside of the card because the top was to heavy to stand up!

Cutie Koala Bear

I have wanted to use flock on one of my cards so I looked through the Create a Critter and chose the Koala Bear. He is so cute! I used the flock to make the white fur pop more. It's cute. I tried to make it more of a boy card since I never have boy cards.

I think I made him a little to big because I couldn't fit anything else on the card! Maybe it is just because he seems to have a large head?

So I had a few challenges in mind when I was making this so here is where it is entered!

More than Flavors
: Birthday Theme

Paper Play time: Zoo

Card Creations and more: Use Create a Critter

Cricut Cardz challenge
: Anything goes
