I Got so much done this weekend !

Good morning,

Yesterday I had such a productive day,cleaning,weeding in the garden,washing all 4 dogs,I made two cards & colored 3 images.I was on a roll~! I also got to browse the web and found a site called Frosted Deisgns .Last night I needed to make a card for my Dad's birthday, and I ran across their challenge..which is to use 3pattern paper,2 buttons and one word title.Hmmm I thought how will I make the buttons work in my card? Well I got out my Prismacolor markers out and started to draw a fish on the button. I then heat set dry & used some opaque pens called Souffle to add some more color. My word title is from my FAVORITE stamps PINK BY DESIGN Just 4 Men stamp set.My digital image is from Pollycraft called Maurice caught one.The pattern paper I used are from DCWV called the Photo stack 2,Imagine Snapshot:Texture cartridge,and the camouflage one is from a random stack of singles I got at a garage sale. Keeping with my goal this year I made two cards.One for the challenge & one for back up stash.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Cricut Imagine card

Last night I made a card using only my Cricut Imagine.I rarely sew on my cards,but I find them so pretty when you do.I have my settings wrong, cause the stitch was suppose to be Zigzag! LOL I think it came out cute anyway. My goal this year is to make more than one card at a time.What I mean is either use all the scraps to make another card or make one to give away and one to keep as back up.I made up the base of this card and sewed all the scraps to use for a similar card.Lets see how long I can keep that up! So I added a stamp sentiment on the front & embossed it, but I couldn't get a good picture.
I created this card for the following challenges:

Skeleton Family

Hello Everyone,
Last week was a busy week and I finally finished my skeleton family decal for my sisters car.
The whole family loves skeletons, last year I even made party invites out of skull & cross bones.
I used Happy Hauntings and Paper Doll Dress Up cartridges. Hopefully the picture isn't too small. Can you believe I forgot to take a picture of my finish project after I placed it on her car?!
Luckily my sister send me the pic with her camera phone.
I'd like to enter my skeleton family into the following challenges:

X- xtra Special Celebrations

Good morning,

I woke up wide awake at 3am excited to post my X-xtra Special Celebration Purse Album. My idea for the album came from Following The Paper Trail. I used her Stack the deck method to assemble the album. The only thing I changed was to make it into a purse and use my Cricut to cut everything out with.My neice got sick back to back with one thing or another this whole Christmas vacation.My purse album was made for an X-xtra special neice to Celebrate her being able to make the Houston trip this weekend. We all went to Aylssa's ice skateing party...which was loads of fun.
Purse album made with the following Cricut cartridges: Geroge Basic Shapes,Rock Princess and Reminisce Accents
