A Big "Howdy" from the Barn!

HOWDY!  This time at My Sheri Crafts Sheri has challenged us to make shaped cards!  Those are always fun!!!  I used a barn from Cricut's County Fair cartridge and made a card base with it.  

Inside I used the Board front from the Old West cartridge.  I love being able to do this with the Explore!  

This card isn't very fancy, but it's going to a little 7 year old boy that I'm just getting to know through the Zippy Zebra's Smiles and Hugs program.  This is a group that sends cards to children with chronic illness or special needs and their siblings.  No one gets left out!  I've got a drawerful of cards, so I thought this would be a great place to use a lot of them!

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card!  I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge this week!

Monochromatic Mums!

Hi!  We are going Monochromatic at Tuesday Throwdown this week!  We are sponsored this week by
                                   and they were generous enough to let us select a digi stamp or digi paper set from their collection.  I chose "Mum's The Word" stamp set for my card.

The image is cut with a Spellbinders die and mounted with foam dots over a paper doilie, which is mounted on a purple doilie that is a Silhouette cut.  The inside stamp is one I've had for at least 2 years and this is the first time I've used it!  It's from Stampabilities and I believe I'll be using it some more!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown!

My First 3D Paper Flowers!

This week at My Sheri Crafts our new challenge is from Sandy and she's asked us to celebrate Moms by making something with flowers.  

I've been seeing so many of these spiral cut flowers and they all look so wonderful that I just had to try them.  Mine don't look nearly as beautiful as so many I've seen, but I really like this wreath anyway!  

All cuts are Cricut , the flowers are from Flower Shoppe, the fern type leaves are from Dinosaur Tracks and the others are from Heritage.

These were really fun and I love the little wreaths!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us!
