Joy's Life Lion Birthday Card

Hello, everyone! Hope your day is off to a great start!

Today, I have for you a lion card that I made with Lettering Delight's Nancy's Buddies files. (If he looks familiar, it's because he was designed by Nancy Kubo who made Cricut's Create A Critter cartridge!)

I just love this little guy. He makes me smile! I wanted to make him into a birthday lion so I added a hat and present. I decided to make him into a shape card since it highlights how cute he is! For a short cut, I print and cut all the elements to the card on my Silhouette. To top it off, the sentiment that goes perfectly with this project is from Joy's Life's Lots Of Puns Stamp Set! (If you don't have this set loaded with 21 cute puns and 2 images, you can get it HERE!)

I'm going to enter this cute dude in My Craft Spot Challenge #45 - Birthday Shape Cards

Hope you enjoy my project for this day! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Baack with a Nancy Kubo Monkey Card!

Hello, all you paper crafters out there! I haven't posted recently because I had surgery on Feb 9th. I am feeling much better now and have gotten the stamina up again to hang out in my hobby room. Yay!

Lettering Delights just recently released two new Nancy Kubo files. You may already know that Nancy is the gal who designed the Create A Critter cartridge for Cricut. I am so glad she is releasing new designs because I just can't seem to get enough of her cuteness!

I used the Nancy's Buddies file and cut the images on my Silhouette Cameo. The sign and banana are Silhouette files. What I LOVE about Design Studio is that I was able to stretch the sign just a bit bigger so it would fit the rubber stamp. I used Joy's Life's Lot's Of Puns stamps for the cute saying! (If you are interested in buying a set, you can do it HERE!)

For the fun of it, I'm going to enter it in Little Scrap Pieces newest challenge - use Green!

Hope you enjoy the card and are having a wonderful Monday!

Cupcake Valentine Card

Second post for the day! I'm on a roll!

I wanted to share with you a simple cupcake card that I made for Valentine's Day. I used Silhouette's Cupcake Pocket by Pebbles in My Pocket. It's a super cute card cause you can slide the cupcake out and write your sentiment on it!

I used scrap paper that I had around my room and jazzed it up a little bit with a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders, glitter, gel pen, button, floss, and ribbon. Easy peasy!

I'm going to link it up to:

Ninja Birthday Card

Hello, all!

I turned the page on the calendar this morning and asked myself, how can it be February already? Yikes! Well, I know this is the month of Cupid but it also the month of my brother's birthday. I thought I better get a card going and hopefully I'll remember to mail it out to him in time for his big day!

I spent time combing my files/cartridges for something that says "guy" and found my little Ninja dudes from Lettering Delights. If that doesn't say "guy", then I don't know what does!

I felt like making an easel card and here's what I came up with!

In the spirit of fun competition, I'm going to enter it in the following challenges:

Die Cutting Diva's #50 - Anything Goes

Paper Playtime #66 - Anything Goes

Little Scrap Pieces - Use Red

Birthday Sundaes #41 - Easel Card

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a great day!
