Boater's Birthday

Good Morning!
Two posts in one week???  This is crazy!  I forgot how much fun blogging was, so my renewed energy has produced today's post.  Today I'm going to see my brother to celebrate his birthday.  He is an avid boater, so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into his card somehow... Here's what I came up with:
I just love how it came out!  I used the "Fun In The Sun" cartridge by Cricut for the boat/guy (in my brother's boat's colors, of course), and I used the Disney "Dreams Come True" cartridge for the 'splat'. I added Glossy Accents to the water under the boat and to the water drops to make it look wet - this card was just screaming for that accent!  Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

Cook Out Card


Sorry to have been a stranger lately - My husband and I just had a baby boy at the end of March, and he has been keeping be busy NOT making cards lately :)  Every now and then, however, he does nap and I am able to sit down and create :)  On an even rarer occasion I take a picture and find time to blog... So here it my latest:

Friends of ours had us over for a cook out last week, so this is the thank you card I sent them. I created the "tablecloth" background by gluing 1" squares in a staggered pattern.  The 2 cuts are from Cricut' Block Party cartridge, and I know it's hard to see, but I used pop dots on those to give the card dimension.  I added the little ant because he made me giggle - I used my black pearl pen to make him.  It feels so good to be playing with paper again! :)

I submitted this card for the following challenge:
