C4C283 World Penguin Day

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog.  Lynn Put is our hostess for April, and this is her challenge:

Since today is world penguin day and tomorrow is National Go Birding Day, let's create a card or project with some type of bird as the main focus. 

I had wanted to make a second card sample for Els to take to the Trade Show in Japan, so I used Karen Burniston's 'Chilly The Penguin' with her Tags Pivot for my challenge card this week.


They were looking for cards that were easy and cute because of the language barrier so I pulled out some 6x6" patterned paper and got to work.



Ha! - loving a pink polka dotted Chilly, but I know a penguin-loving friend who is rolling her eyes right now.


Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C283.

Birthday Kitty Pull Card

Good morning friends

It's no secret I love the Spiral Circle Pull Card (SCPC) by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I wanted to use it to make a cat loving friend her birthday card.


I used matching papers from a 6x6" paper stack (my newest obsession, I think) and even cut Whiskers the Cat from patterned paper. I added Glitter Dots for her eyes, and applied Stickles to the fun party hat and her collar for sparkle.


Here is a look at the inside of the card ...


I cut a party blower and little bow as well ...



I know MJ will love receiving this cheery birthday card and that makes me happy.

Chalkboard Print Sympathy Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is the sympathy card I made for my parents. My cousin passed away unexpectedly this month, and she & my mom were very close.


I had picked up a Fiskars small Stamp Press, and have been happy with how well it works to stamp onto die cuts. I seem to be stamping things crooked these days so hopefully this tool will help me with that.


Loving these stitched scalloped border dies ...



Supplies:
Patterned paper - We R Memory Keepers
Stitched Scallop Border die - MFT
903 Katie Label Accordion (stitched label), Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Sympathy words - the Stamps of Life
Seam binding
