Dinosaur Birthday Card

I hope everyone is having a good Sunday, I know I am.  Started out my day having breakfast with my husband before he had to go to work.  One of the things I needed to do for sure was make a birthday card for my nephew, who will be turning 11 on Saturday.  Soooo, no flowers or bling on this card. But I think I did pretty good. I made a shape card using Create A Critter and my Gypsy. Do you know how much I love my Gypsy??? LOTS!

Card Size 5 1/4"
All paper was from my scrap stash, I love using up this paper
Cricut cartridges used, Create A Critter & George and Basic Shapes
Dinosaur shadow cut at 5 1/4" & 5"  I used the smaller dinosaur shadow for the inside of the card

Thank You Card

I made this card for a friend of mine.  I really like the way it came out.  The zebra stamp is the very first stamp I bought me years ago when I started stamping.  I have always loved this image, I think it's so elegant. I colored my young lady with copic markers (I actually received my monthly shipment today).

Lumier Card

I received an email from Pink By Design about a little boy in Iowa who is fighting Leukemia.  Max Low is a 12 year old who has been battling cancer for half of his life.  His doctors recently told his parents to enjoy the time they have left with him.  His wish is to get 1 million cards, at the time of the email he had received about 23,000.  So to help Max reach his goal Pink By Design sent out the email to help make his wish come true. 

This is my card for Max. I had a time getting this done because I kept having trouble with my cuts, but I think I finally got it.  However, I ended up coloring his eyes using my  white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen.  I believe it came out alright, which was a good thing because I lost my teeny white pieces.

Froggies Anniversary Card

My second card I did, I thought came out really cute.  The only cricut cut is the white background of the stamped image, but still love the way they came out. I know my cards are now out of order, but that's alright too.  The sentiment on the inside of the card reads "to a toadally awesome couple".

First let me say sorry about the picture being a little blurry.  I made this card for my sons' birthday. I used the Best of Pixar cartridge and cut Wall-E and all the layers at 5 inches. This was a little time consuming since there were so many pieces. I really do like the way this card came out and my son loved it!
