A Couple fun Birthday Cards

Hi, I am trying to catch up on my blog posting.  I have been busy creating cards
but have just not found much time to post them.
This is a card I made following a sketch, it is pretty simple but I love the colors.
The background paper is from a DCWV paper stack that I got a long long long time ago and was probably one of the first stacks I bought.
The center circle sentiment I made using Microsoft Word.  I do not do it very often so I really have to play around with it to get it right.  Then using my Cameo and Make the Cut software I was able to cut around that sentiment.  The center is a canvas button sticker from CTMH, I was trying to keep this so it could be used for a male so I hope that flower doesn't throw it off.

Here is the second card to share with you.
 The papers are CTMH Lucy paper pack.   I hosted a challenge and my extra credit was to use a negative cut.  Well where the flowers are is a window, the rub-on stickers are on a paper behind the main strip.
The bow I cut using the Artiste cartridge, I love to cut the paper bows, that way they match your project exactly. 
Here is a closer look at that rub-on and the bow.  I also added some rub-ons to the paper the bow was made from.

Glad you stopped by I hope you enjoyed my 2 cards today.

Welcome Baby.............

Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I have a card to share with you today that I made following the sketch this week at Mojo Monday.
Boy has it been a long time since I played along there.
Well the timing was right as I had to make a baby shower card for one of our granddaughter's shower next week.
As you can tell she is having a girl and her name will be Lily.  Boy how that has changed since I had my kids years ago 40+ you never knew what you were having till it popped out. :)
I used my MTC software to set up the scalloped circles so they would layer and shadow each other.  Then I added the text using my sketch pens and my Cameo to write out the text, then go back and have MTC cut out the circle.  I love MTC but I just have to make myself use it more to learn all the cool things it does, plus Andy is constantly updating it and adding new features.  
The papers are some Heidi Grace papers I have had around here for a couple of years.  
The flower is a crumpled flower I made a long time ago but it just matched this perfectly so I added it.
I am please with how this turned out as I struggled with every detail, I love the pink and green combination.
Well thanks for stopping by and hop on over to Mojo Monday and join in the fun.

Collage of Flowers

Hi, glad you stopped by.
A few weeks ago I made this card following a challenge and one of the extra credits was to make a collage card.  So the images on this card came up when I 
Googled collage images.  Not sure it was what I had in mind as a collage but I loved them nonetheless so I used them.
I do love the look of this card.  Background paper is from the K& Company Best of Brenda Walton stack. 
I matted each layer using a rust like color.
The "happy birthday" I wrote using my sketch pens in my Cameo.  
Well I hope you enjoyed looking at my card and will leave me a comment.  Thanks!

A Fabulous Day

Hello everyone hope you are enjoying your Sunday.
I have a card to share today that I made using some papers from
the Best of K&Company paper stack.
The center brad I made using my iTop brad maker to match the paper.  The crocheted green center was a goodies that came in my box from Websters Pages.  That box was just packed with fun things and papers.
Here is a closer look at that crocheted piece.
All the cuts were done using the Artiste cartridge.

Well thanks for taking a minute to stop in, I would love to hear your comments.
