Speed Racer birthday invitation

I made these invites for my youngest's 2nd birthday next month, I can't believe he's almost 2 - I just had him yesterday, didn't I??!

Since we got him a big race car track for his birthday, I decided to go with the race car theme for his party!  I used the race car from Boys Will Be Boys cricut cart.  I used Kraft cardstock for the base and some new cardstock for the race car that I got from JoAnn's last week, I really like it - it cut so great in my cricut and embossed perfectly in my cuttlebug!  I used the diamond plate embossing folder for the circle behind the car, twine from We R Memory Keepers, the speed racer sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and I used the Teeny Tag Greetings stamp and matching tag die from My Creative Time for the "You're Invited" tag.

On the inside, I put a piece of the grey cardstock that matches the circle on the front then I will print the party details and adhere them to the grey cardstock and it'll be ready to mail.

I'm entering this into this week's challenge at My Craft Spot: Announcements & Invitations.

Birthday Wishes card

I made this birthday card for my friend Chris last month for her birthday!  I used the Citrus stack from DCWV and this sketch from the ScrapbookSteals blog.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cart to cut the flower and I offset the layers to give it more dimension. I cut a tag using the matching die to the My Creative Time 'Teeny Tag Greetings" stamp set, such a fun set that I treated myself to recently!  I tied the sentiment tag on using CTMH Hemp.

I finished off the inside using more of the same printed paper from the outside and a sentiment stamp from CTMH!

Monday Card Madness #96

And yes, another Christmas card today - I'm on a roll!!  :)  I used the Monday Card Madness sketch at ScrapbookSteals for my inspiration - another great sketch!

Here's my card!  I used Echo Park paper for this card and a sentiment stamp from my stash but I'm not sure of the manufacturer, the diecut that the sentiment is on was cut from Elegant Edges cricut cart.  I used my distress tool to distress the edges of all the paper I used for this card, I really like the way it looks!

Nice and simple!  :)

Mojo Monday 252

I've started working on my Christmas cards last week, I definitely need to get going and we're having a Christmas card weekly challenge at Chatter Scene to inspire us!!  I chose to use the Mojo Monday blog sketch for this week's card.

Here's the sketches - I opted to go with the square and made a 5x5 card...
Here's my card!  Sorry for the poor pictures, its overcast here today so the lighting wasn't great!  But if that means we may get some rain, I'm ok with that!!

The inside...

I used CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cart for the snowflakes and ornament and the paper is from Echo Park 'Season's Greetings' stack.
