Vintage Card

We are finally having Spring weather here in Missouri.  For awhile I thought we were going to go straight from winter to summer.  I am enjoying the spring showers along with all the blooms on my flowers and trees.
This is my DT project for Digi Choosday.  The challenge theme is always Anything Goes but the DT was given the challenge of Vintage.  I used the Little Miss Sugar Pops 1 download kit for my image and papers.  I decided to paper piece her hat and dress for a more vintage look to my project. And of course I had to add a bit of lace.

Braided Ribbon Card

The current challenge at Addicted to Stamps is "Ribbon Galore"
I decided to braid the ribbon and use as a border.  It's a pretty easy technique that adds a different twist (no pun intended) to your ribbon.
For this card I dug deep into my stash of rubber stamps and pulled out this oldie but goodie.  I have had this stamp for at least 18 years.  It is from Close To My Heart and is probably retired (I haven't checked). 
Card Details:
Stamp: Grape Vine Wreath Heart Wreath from CTMH
Corner leaf: Storybook Cricut cartridge

Entered in following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy: Favorite Florals
Crafty Dee Bowz: Anything goes with a homemade bow
House of Cards: Shaped card or colors (I think I used all the colors plus made a shaped card)

Pirate Treat Box

I'm back today sharing one more project made with one of the new images from the Little Dudes Collection at Polkadoodles.  Today's project features Pirate Little Dude.  Isn't he cute?  I used the tags, bags, boxes and more Cricut cartridge to cut out the crayon treat box.  I made it much larger than a typical crayon box so I could add lots of treats or fun little toys.

Dinosaur Dude

I love this little guy reading to his dinosaurs.  I know several dinosaur lovers who will enjoy receiving cards using this image.  This is Dino Mite Little Dude.  He is part of the Little Dude release from Polkadoodles.  Not only do you get the image but also 3 pattern papers and the sentiments as well.  I used a circle paper punch to cut out the dinos from one of the pattern papers to use as my borders.

Toad-ally Awesome

 I like to make a scrapbook for each of my daycare kids as they get ready to go to kindergarten.  I fill the book with lots of memories of their time at daycare with their friends.  I have lost count how many albums I have created over the 17 years I have been open.  This will be the front page of his album.  This new image from the Little Dudes collection at Polkadoodles is just the perfect image for K's album.  We were just talking about my pond and all the frogs just a couple days before this image was released.  Perfect timing!

Get Well Card

I'm back and sharing another of the new Little Dude images from Polkadoodles.  
Meet Broken Bones Little Dude.  Poor guy.  The whole time I was making this card I kept thinking, "What does the other guy look like?"  I stitched the heartbeat pattern onto cardstock.  I like to stitch on cards but since I do it by hand and not machine, I tend to save the stitching for special projects like this one.
The pattern papers come with the digi stamp so it's a great deal.  You get 3 pattern papers, sentiments and the image.

Skating Snowman

Today starts a new challenge at Aud Sentiments.  The theme is Cute + a Sentiment and we are sponsored by Drawn by Krista.
I used Skating Snowman for my card.  I kept it simple and free of bulky embellishments so that it will be easier to mail.  I haven't decided if I will send it out as a Christmas card or hold on to it and use it as a Thank You card after the holidays.
