Peachy Challenge 15 Just Cards

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. It's a beautiful day here in NY. A little breeze and cool but still very nice. Can't wait for the warm weather to come. They say by the end of next week, yea. This weeks challenge is to make a card using your custome background. I used a cloud template cut from April Showers cart. and sponged the color around the edges to make my cloud sky.

My card is a 4.25"x5.5" card base in Black and Red Mat 4"x5.25" both from Bazzill
White cs with clouds is 3.75"x5". I cut a green pattern paper from Heidi Grace to represent the grass 2"x5". The baseball player and layers were cut from Everyday Paper Dolls at 2.25" and the bases were cut at 1.75". I cut the sun from Create A Critter at 1.50". I used PK Stamps for the boys face and the sun. Love these stamps.

I giving this card to my grandson today for his birthday. He is turning 8 yrs and loves baseball. I even put his number on the shirt. Hope he likes it.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend.

Cricut Cardz Challenge #106

Hi Everyone, hope you had a nice weekend. Can't believe it's almost over already. Time goes by too fast. I made this card for the Cricut Cardz Challenge "April Showers". You can make a card or project with rain boots, clouds, umbrella and any cartridge you like.

My card is an A2 sz. (4.25" x 5.5") Shadow Box card. Base cs is from Bazzill and the pattern paper is from DCWV Citrus Stack. I die cut the middle of the front w/a spellbinders die and scored the sides at 1/2" & 1". I cut the grass from Plantin Schoolbook at 1.5". The boy & umbrella and accessories were from Everyday Paper Dolls and cut at 2". The clouds and the rain were cut from Create A Critter and also cut at 2". I stamped the boys face with PK stamp Everday faces. I embossed the clouds and the grass w/Swiss Dots. I tied a bow with bakers twine and added some buttons to each of the corners. Sentiment is from the computer.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a good week.

Cardz TV Challenge #8

Hello Everyone,

I made this Spring card for Cardz TV Challenge "Color Me A Rainbow". You can only use pink, blue, green and yellow for your colors and you can make a card of project.
My card is a 4.25" x 5.5". Blue card base is from Recollections. The pattern paper is from a paper pack I bought a while ago (sorry can't remember who makes it). I thought it was pretty and went with the coloring since it has pink, green and yellow. Ribbon is from Michaels. The scallop circle was cut from Elegent Edges and I cut it in half and tucked it behind the ribbon and stamped Spring from one of my stamps. The flower was made from the Cuttlebug Quilling flower dies. It's the daisy one. I had fun making it and it was easy to do.

Thanks for stopping by.
