birthday card for my nephew

2 of my nephews (OK, my nephew and GREAT nephew) are having birthdays. Both play football, so I made 2 cards similar to this. The other one is in his school colors.
Inside says "HAVE A BALL". I have uploaded the football to the Make The Cut gallery.

card for my nephew

my nephew is a manager of a Goodyear tire store, so I tried to use that as the theme for his 29th birday card. I made the tire from a photo of a tire off the internet.

cards from my sisters

Well my sisters are too cleaver. Here are cards they made. The purple one is from my younger sister. Says " Don't lie about your age", inside says "EMBELLISH IT!" My much older sister made the other card is directly to the left, that is closed, when you pull on the candles, the cupcake moves up and the inside slides up to reveal your message. NOTE, the candles on top are just a joke, I am not really 56, I'm only

some old cards

I used one of Paulo's cut files for these. I love how they turned out!

Thanks Paulo. The file can be obtained on his blog scale-files .

Please check it out, there are hundreds of wonderful free files there.

2 more cards

June is birthday month around here. 2 more cards I scraplifted. Acutally didn't use my cricut for either of these!

The first card I made is for a birthday, inside says happy birthday to ewe (the receipient raises sheep) and the file is from the MTC gallery. The flower is dimensional and the center is a button.
The mustang is for my husband's nephew. I used puff paint on the car exhaust, looks cute in person. I'm sorry, but don't remember who made the file for the car, but THANKS, it cut great.

3 cards I scraplifted. The first one, I took the idea, but made my own file. The butterflies have stickles on the wings and they are cut out so they are kinda lifted off the card. The orange plaid one I dont really care for, but was trying to use up some paper and this was all I could come up with.

The 3rd one is from Wild Card cartridge with a flower from Doodlecharms. They all 3 need some kind of tag or title, but I am making some all purpose cards for a friend to use, so I dont have anything to put on them yet!

snow white witch

I made this from a coloring book page. When she is in the 'queen' stage of the movie she is my favorite character...I strive to be just like her! ha ha ha. Still don't know what I will use this for, but will probably put some sort of saying under her basket on the blank part of the card...

card I made

I altered this design made by Kerry
I removed his spray paint and added a beer... Isn't he cute?

Seattle Seahawks card

I made this simple get well card for a friend of my daughter, who is a big Seahawk fan. inside says ..."you aren't feeling well"
I used a coloring book image for the seahawk logo. Took more time for the piece to cut than it did to create!

thinking of you card

I used a butterfly that I found in the MTC gallery for this card. The thinking of you block is from the font 09 kut ups. I made this for a great friend's mom who is in the hospital and starting physical therapy.. I wish I had embossed around the title square, but, it's in the mail already..

to my good friend, Maryann


Hope you can smell purple today! ha ha ha

Happy Hanukkah

another try at vinyl last Dec. I made this for my girlfriend. She absolutely loved it... I just used white lights and crumpled up blue cellophane inside. The menorrah is from the cricut cartridge. I used stickles on the base and flames

my first try at vinyl

I like the way this turned out. I just used cheap contact paper, since I had never used vinyl before. The design is from a dingbat font...He really looks pretty in the dark when he is lit up.

hedgehog card

I got this hedgehog pattern from Free SVG Day 51 – Hedgehog « Blog.isnt he cute...I used stickles to make his quills...

prescription for a happy birthday

I made this pill bottle and pills for my niece's husband. He works in a pharmacy so I thought this was appropriate...I re-did the label and typed it so that it looked more real... He got a big kick out of it. The pill bottle was adapted from a free clip art and converted in MTC.

old fashioned card

I made this card using a beautiful fram designed by Monicas Hobbysida
The woman was from a font dingbat. I really liked how it turned out.

I scraplifted this card from the wonderful site:
Mommy Mel's Addiction. She had a really pretty card and I copied the inscription and general idea. I like hers better, but didnt want to do the real stitching on mine. The colors on mine don't make the card pop as good as hers, but I made mine with scraps that I had on hand. My friend that I made it for will love it anyhow... (I hope!)

2 more challenge borders

I made 2 more simple borders a LET IT SNOW and a POKER NIGHT one. The files are on the MTCHints-Tips yahoo group under shared files, then borders. Hope someone can use them. Boy, there have been some great borders created by people over on the site! Check em out!
