Strong Like a Lion!

I was searching for another challenge to do and came to Sherri's Jitterbuggin' challenge site. I haven't played along in awhile so I thought I would use her design (plus yellow, stripes and a cricut cut) to come up with a card for Charlie. Charlie is a little boy suffering from EB and Nicole (who I found through the Jitterbuggin' site) is looking for anyone interested in making a card for this little boy and his family. This is Nicole's site HERE if you would like to make a card or read more about Charlie. Her card is what inspired my Lion and helped me to come up with my "be strong like a lion" theme.

I am also going to put this card up over at Fantabulous cricut, where there theme is all about support this week, in hopes that other people might get inspired to send this family a card.

This card is created on clear plastic with the actual opening for the sentiment in the circle in the middle.

Be Mine ... Or Else! :)

I was browsing the lovely blogs on my favorites list looking for inspiration for a Valentines card for my sweetie (awwww! lol) and I found some Mojo at Mojo Monday and I also found Paper Player's open challenge which I of course had to do! UPDATE: Totally missed the deadline at Mojo by just a little. Oh well it was still a fun design! :)

This is done with some basic cardstock bits I had one hand plus some fun bronze metallic paper. I found the heart paper at a local store and it was to cute to pass up. I accented with some rough/lacy/don't know how to describe it ribbon type material :) and some flower soft on the leaves.

I am hoping to get back to crafting more then once a month so hopefully getting back to going through the blogs and looking at all the wonderful work will be the inspiration to sit down and craft even if it is just for an hour.

Hi Everyone! Once again this is my first post in forever. My move is done and the house is in enough order that I don't feel too bad making a big mess crafting! :) This flower arrangement is for a class that I am hoping to do at our lovely local Scrappers Anonymous. It was done a bit late because of the move so I am hoping the project gets out there and sparks enough interest to be a go!

I would also like to thank people for their comments on my last post. I"m sorry I didn't get a change to respond personally.

I am off to finish my first card in over a month!! I was inspired by a few blogs out there and will be posting in a few minutes once I finish a few details and take a few photos.
