And Now for Yet Another Bear . . .

I want to share another bear card with you.  Time crunch has set in and they are getting pretty simple.  

I did pull out some dies from Spellbinders to mat my bear - the Twist on Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge (use a die or punch).

Building Bears

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!

Today I have some more Black Bear cards for you.

The first couple cards use SVG Cuts' Elegant Gothic Frame.

The Chevron on this frame is from SVG Cuts Easter Egg Treat Bags.

The border on these next two cards is from Miss Kate Cuttables' Independence Banners.

Bear Die-Cut Card

Happy Tuesday, All!

For today’s cards I'm working on Black-Bear cards for the Fort Wilkins' Gift Shop.  These cards go pretty quickly, but look cool when finished, I think.  :D  I used Paper Studio's Hoot, Hoot paper pad for the patterned paper - can't remember where the bear came from.

U.P. Collection

It is almost time for Michigan campers to begin visiting state parks.  This UP collection is just the beginning of cards that will be available at Fort Wilkins State Park.

Happy Birthday

I just finished my grandson's birthday party invitations and have them ready for tomorrow's male.  Of course, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product - but here is a picture of my first draft.  Couple changes - no white border around Super Why and Princess Presto, and Adrian's name and 1st birthday are highlighted.  Oh, then there is the fact that I had a friend help me put them together so I could get them out - I've always said I don't crop because I can't gab and create at the same time....and I learned tonight, neither can Vickie!  So some of the parts may just be upside down - or very much off center!  LOL!  But they are in the mail!

Fancy Feline

I don't know about you, but I don't have many animal stamps sets - or even animal paper patterns.  So when it comes to a time like today - after making close to 70 pet cards, I often find myself in a bit of a bind to make them unique.  since I prefer to spend my crafting dollars on stamps that I can get lots of mialeage out of, I resorted once again to my digital images.  These cards use a couple of my favorite elements (as you know, if you've been following my blog) - the paw print (SVG Cuts) and Kitty Borders (Cuddly Cute Designs).

Cards for Tucson's Pet-Adoption Event - April 11

The theme for me the past couple weeks has been pet cards.  Today's cards are generic pet cards for pet-owner birthdays.  I'm using the Paw-Print svg from SVG Cuts, as well as balloons from Miss Kate Cuttables.

This is by far, one of the biggest events I've ever made cards for. I've spent many late nights working on getting everything together. I had some fails in the process, but I'm happy with how everything is turning out.

Today's cards are all generic pet birthday cards . . . I hope to have some time to make blank notecards, too - as they should be more fun without having to worry about sentiments.

2015 Pet-Adoption Event - April 11

April 11 is Tucson's Pet Adoption event, so what better time to scrap the four-legged friends in your life with birthday wishes.

This is your chance to wish two-legged friends with "ruff" and "purr-fect" birthday wishes.  There are a lot of different digital files to suit your personal taste and designs for cards.  BTW, if you are in the Tucson area, you will probably be able to find a four-legged friend to suit your personal taste at the Pet-Adoption Event, too.

Easter Fresh

Yay!  I love this bunny from Digital Crea so much!  Here's a card I made for my grandson for Easter (can you believe I didn't have an Easter card in my stash?)  I just think this bunny is awesome!  I love the colors - even though they aren't quite traditional Easter.  The inspiration for this card came from the paw-print frames I've been using for Pet-Adoption cards - looks like a bunny print to me!  Super easy and simple to pull together.

The sentiment is a free digital sentiment from Bross Artful.

Birthday Cards

Puppies are great for sending greetings - including birthday.  Whether it's from a digital image or stamp, using a pup meakes for a fun, homemade card.  And the best part?  Puppy files are easy to find from SVG Cuts, 2 Cute Ink, and Kadoodle Bug.

Pets for Birthdays

These cards were a blast to make. I love the paw-print frame from SVG Cuts. On these cards, the frames are adorned with Milk & Cookies Cat from 2 Cute Ink and Birthday Puppy from Kadoodle Bug. The fishbones are from Kitty Borders - Cuddly Cute Designs.
