Y08, YR02, YR07, YR21, YR31, B41, B21, E11, E00, RV02, N1, YG17, R24 and used the Uniball White Opaque pen for accents.

Posey Puppy

Challenge 362 - Over at Penny's Paper Crafty challenge is Anything Goes.  I had the sponsor, Fred She Said


Most of the Fred She Said images are pre-colored, but I like to color and learn my practice, so I put the image in Photoshop and desaturated it until it was just black and white.  Then I colored it how I wanted to color it.   

 I uploaded the image into Cricut and cut the puppy 6 times so I could layer it on this card.  Then I cut a dog house from the Pop-UP Neighborhood cartridge.  I embossed the wood to create texture and depth.

I also cut two bones for the inside. On the front, I used a stamp from CMTH that says "Yappy Birthday" I also stamp one of the bones on the inside with a stamp from the same set that says, "I woof you"
and I stamped the little dog in the corner

I colored the puppy with E13, E17, E19, E39,
RV06, YG17, YG13, R29, Uniball White Pen

Tea Time

Challenge 361 - Over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges the theme is "Anything Goes."

The Paper Shelter is the sponsor I had to work with 

I used the Tea Time bundle.  They were all pre-colored images.  I cut them out and glued them up, put some Earl Grey tea in the holders and put them neatly in the box.  It makes a handy get-well gift or a hope you have a better day. 

The box holds 5 of the tea bag covers.  I added a brad to the little flower in the front to hold the box closed. 


It's a pretty cute set!

Winter/scape - Fantabulous Cricut

   Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #315-WinterMake a project about the winter (sports, snow, etc)!Our sponsor this week is 

A $20 gift certificate which is incredible!!!

I made 4 snowflake boxes and napkin rings for our Christmas table setting.  The box and napkin ring are from Tablescapes Fall and Winter cartridge.  What a fun cartridge that is!!
I filled the box with Jordan Almonds.  In Italy these are called confetti and they are served with special or holiday meals.  When we lived there, I reveled in learning their traditions. I loved this sweet idea.  A little bit of sugar at the end of the meal is good for digestion. 

I made snowflakes for each side of the box from various other cartridges. I also made the felt flowers and put them in an old bedspring to further decorate the table.
