Happy Memorial Day, a little bit early!

Happy Thursday everyone!  I thought I would share a centerpiece I made for a BBQ honoring my husband's military service.  Since it is almost Memorial Day, I thought it was appropriate. I apologize for the bad pictures, I was having trouble with the lighting and my camera. 
 Everything was cut on my Cameo.  The rosettes are Lettering Delights files and the army men came from SVG Cuts.  The cute little flag bucket came from Joann's.

Challenge Me Monday #112

Hello everyone and welcome to another Challenge Me Monday at FCCB!  This week we want to see your graduation projects.  This one hit home a bit for me.  My baby sister will be graduating from high school next year.  There is a fifteen year age difference between us.  I have watched her grow up and sometimes it's hard to believe she's not that little kid anymore.  
On to my card, the base of the card was cut at 5"x6.5.  The light purple mat was cut at 4.5"x6".  The original paper was plain.  I heat embossed stamps from My Creative Time's latest release to make my own background paper.  The tag is also from MCT's latest release and the hat is from Locker Talk.

Birthday Wishes

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I had some time this afternoon and needed to catch up on some birthday cards.  I used the PKS sketch for inspiration.  Here is the sketch:

This card was cut entirely with my Cameo and the files came from Scrapping Bug Designs.  I heat embossed the balloons with clear embossing power with the Build a Banner kit from My Creative Time.  It's a little hard to see in the pictures but stickles were added to the hat and glossy accents to the face.

Challenge Me Monday

Hello everyone and welcome to another Challenge Me Monday at FCCB!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  It felt like summer here.  We had temperatures in the 90's!  It did not make for pleasant yard work this morning!

I can't believe May is already here.  Mother's Day is just around the corner and we want to see your projects for that special woman in your life.  This was the perfect time for me to play with the new dies from My Creative Time.  The base of my card was cut at 4"x5.5".  All of my matting shapes and border were cut from Elegant Edges and the flowers were cut in my Cuttlebug.    I curled the petals up on my flowers, added some buttons to the middle, and doodling as a final touch.
