Hay There!

This month's Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge features an image from Blueberry Bear and I used him to make a general "Hello" card:

I was trying to figure out just what to do when a metal "Hay There" stencil fell out of a bin and then everything fell into place!  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and mounted on a scrap of burlap then on a mat cut with Martha Stewart "punch around the page" punches.  The papers are scraps, too, and I used a white gel pen for the sentiment stencil.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dance In The Sun

This week Tuesday Throwdown is sponsored by
and our theme is "Summer Fun".

I've used "Fairy Dancer" to make my card:

The sentiment is computer generated and cut from vinyl with my Cricut Explore.  The tag is also a Cricut cut and the image is on a Spellbinders diecut.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm off to our "Wild West Rodeo Bible Camp"!  BUSY week!!!

A Country Birthday Card

Hi! We have a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  "August 2-8 is National Farmer's Market week. Make a card or project with a farm/country life inspiration."

I used cuts from Cricut's "Old West" cartridge for my card:

I cut the sentiment from Vinyl...much easier to get it onto the card that way!   ;o)

I hope you'll join us!

Family Campout

This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday, our twist is "Water Theme".   This gave me a great incentive to scrap a page of our family campout.  

I used Cricut's "Life's A Beach" cartridge for most of the cuts.  The "Families are forever" is also a Cricut cut.  The background paper is part of a kit I bought years ago, from LTD I think.

I had trouble when I first laid this out, it just needed something and I couldn't figure out what.   I finally just glued it down and took pictures.   As  soon as I looked at the picture, I could see it.  This is the first pic:

Amazing what a difference it made to move a diecut over a few inches!

Hope to see you over at The Outlawz!

Little Fireman Step Card

This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday we are using the twist of "Step Cards" and we are sponsored by
I haven't made a step card in awhile so I had to look for a template!   

The little fireman digi is one that I won a little while back, but I have to find the company name again and give them a proper Thank You!   I'll be back with that later.  All the die cuts are Cricut cuts.  I think I need something taller in the back and I may still add something..... but for now, come on over to The Outlawz and join us!

Fun, interactive Firetruck Card!!

Hi!  This week at My Sheri Crafts we are celebrating our little ones with the theme" Birthday Cards for a Child less than 13".

I made this fun card for my grandson's 5th birthday!

This is a Silhouette Cut.  The extra piece of ladder is supposed to be just glued to the side of the truck, but I cut little velcro strips and added them to the back of the ladder .....

...and on the back of the extension on the truck and look what you get:

He thought this was a pretty fun card!  I kind of agree with him!  :)

I hope you'll get creative & crafty and join us this week at My Sheri Crafts!

Silhouette Challenges - July Anything Goes

Thursday, July 9, 2015

This week at Twisted Thursday, our theme is "Anything Goes With a Twist" and our Twist is "Use Die Cuts!" How fun and easy is that?

                                                       We are sponsored by the fantastic 

My daughter needed a "Going Away" card at work so I used cuts from Cricuts "Old West" cartridge to make one for her.

The "Good Luck" cut actually came from a different cartridge, I think. I found it through an image search.  Inside I used the Old West font and cut out "and Best Wishes" with brown vinyl.  

Head on over to The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and see all the great inspiration there, then join us!

A Poppy Sympathy Card

I have a sympathy card to share today.  Actually, I had this card to share Tuesday, but I'm just getting the post completed!  I received this image as part of The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge, but didn't get my card done until the very last minute, then couldn't get into the website to join in so I never finished my post.                                                                I love this framed poppy image and I think it will be very useful and versatile!  I printed the image on white paper, then colored the background with Spectrum Noir markers.  There are two layers of the image.  The bottom I've glued the bottom of the top image down, then used foam dots at the top to make the flower kind of "rise up" from the corner. 


Digi is from Anne's Images colored with Spectrum Noir pens; sentiment stamp is an "innie & outie" from My Sentiments Exactly; pearls are from The Paper Studio.

Thanks for stopping by!
