Puppy love

Meljen design team challenge blog wants to see 2 images on your card.   For me that usually means a image and sentiment.  So i used the dalmatian dog and the freebie puppy love from meljen and then i got my good friend jen to help me out by making me a postage card file for cricut design studio using base camp.  If you want the file i can put you in contact with her.   I colored my image with copics and paired it with some dalmatian fire dog paper.

Teapot card

This card was made for two challenges.  It uses the cricut cartridge a childs year. 

First challenge is flutter by wednesday- open theme as long as it has a angel, butterfly or fairy.  My fairy is from paper make up stamps it the tangi fairy with matching sentiment.  

Second challenge is paper make up make up for the weekend- non circle card.  Now my dear friend shaela picked this challenge and i could of gone the route i normally go when i run across this theme and that to get my cricle file out for my cricut.  But i been wanting to use my cricut carts more and a childs year has a bunch of really neat card shapes on it.  So i flipped thru and spotted the tea pot card and i just got the tangii fairy so my card was off and running.  I added some cuttlebug embossing on the front of the card and finished it off with some brown ribbon.   This card is a very plain and simple one for me i kept wanting to add more bling but it just made it look worse so i left it plain. 

winter wonderland fairy

Over on the meljen challenge blog the theme this week is anything goes.  I printed out the woodland fairy and dressed her up in blues like she walking in a winter forest.  I used the sketch from splitcoast this week and papers from dcwv winter wonderland.  Image is colored with copics.
