A very Mousy Christmas!

They did it again!! Over at Bitten By the Bug 2, they put up a challenge I just couldn't resist.  The challenge was to use the mouse from the Meow cartridge, which sadly, I don't have =(.  But Create A Critter has a cutie mouse and I decided to go ahead and use that one.

A very mousey Christmas
Please excuse the shadows!

I made this into a money holder that I'm going to need for my nephews' Christmas gifts. It couldn't have come out any cuter!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Why, hello Mr. Snowman

I so wanted to play along with Jingle Belles but I just didn't get my card done in time =(. But, of course, that won't stop me from sharing it with you.

The challenge was to use a sticker on your Christmas card. I am loving the Echo Park Holly Jolly many bright, happy colors. Just my style. My Christmas cards this year will probably all sport some Holly Jolly on them, so be prepared.  This card came out sweet and straight to the point.  Again, just my style. =)

Gobble Gobble

My little niece liked the first door hanger that I made so I thought I'd make her one for Thanksgiving.

I was having trouble with this.  My crafter's block wasn't helping, either.  I really wanted to use pattern paper with a different turkey cut but it just wasn't meshing.  But my disaster turned into something way better.  I totally love how this turned out.  Especially the glitter accents (must buy more STICKLES!!).

Throwback Thursday Challenge - Happy Rainbow

Emma's challenge over at My Creative Time was to use a "kid-friendly" cartridge.  How much more kid friendly can you get with Create A Critter?

I am in love with rainbows.  They just make me happy =).  All the bright, happy colors remind me of little kiddies.  So, I decided to use one for this card.  I welded a couple of cuts together to make this little guy.  Add some bright pattern papers and you got yourself a very happy rainbow.

Happy Birthday

I was inspired by KinderStampO's Color It Monday post for this card. This goes out to my nephew for his 8th (ohmygosh, he's so old!!) birthday. I know he loves snakes and if I'm remembering right, he had a brown and green snake that he named "Brown and Green" (how original!). Hope he likes it!

Baby Elephant

I needed to make a baby shower card and I also wanted to try out a challenge over at Peachy Keen.  Put two and two together and this is what you get!!

Baby Shower

I know there's too much blue going on, but I couldn't find a pattern paper to work with. And the one I did like was NOT cooperating with my Cricut. You win some, you lose some. Still love how it came out. =)
