Hi Everyone, I decided I wanted to do a bit of cutting out for a change, well not literally, but on my Cricut. I am ashamed to say that I have an awful lot of files that have only seen my file system, certainly not anything else. Looking through I saw these and thought that they looked easy enough and I had card that would match the file colour example, after all it was only a play to see what happened wasn't it?

They turned out so well, I was thrilled to see what these files are all about.  Here they are, one a card, one just waiting to be used. They both have 4 layers, making them quite sturdy. I added Stickles for a bit of glitter.

the wellie is 3 inches high and 2 1/4 inches wide,
each example could have been as big as I wanted though.

this is 3 1/4 inches wide and high (square)
The cutting files are from Lettering Delights Garden Showers kit.

Challenges  Singin' in the Rain - I have a Wellie for the rain, shame the brolly isn't eligable.   Card for Guys - well it can be!

Joseph's card

Hi Everyone, you'll notice that my title today is "Joseph's Card", why? Our next door neighbours have a Down’s syndrome Grandson named Joseph.  Joseph is 23 and very clever with drawing and painting and likes to be quite detailed with them. His Grandmother sent me a copy of one of his drawings.  I thought it so good it deserved to be on a card.

I decided to make him a card that he could give to one of his friends, perhaps. It's a one layer card I did in PS. I also made a copyright notice and placed it on the bottom left of the image, I hope Joseph likes it when given to him by his Grandparents.

Image by Joseph
The DP is by Vicki Stegall
The twine is by Dawn by Design
The push pins are by Just so Scrappy

Cowgirl Boots

Hi Everyone my card today is with inspiration by Paulette at Create with TLC. She had this quote and as soon as I saw it I knew that I had just the right boot LOL. I changed all the colours in PS from red white and blue to as it is now. I also added a "pattern" of boots to the background paper and added shadows.

The DP's etc are by RetroDiva I have had them for years.
The button is a PS brush resized.

DSC # 96 "Boys at play"

It's time for a new challenge at

 Digitally Sweet Challenges

the Theme is 

Boys at play

sponsored by  Lunagirl

Hi Everyone, for my DT project today, I decided to do something a little different as I thought this little chap rubbing head was just right for a card front. I suppose it could have been a forgotten birthday, but he did remind me of my baby brother when we were younger, not that he is that old of course LOL.  I added lots of embellishments and even added a curl to the page, all in Photoshop.

 Embellies are Sheila Reid's kits at Pixelscrapper.  I added the fairy, so that hopefully, she will help him remember that he left the bike at the lamp post down the street :)  AND she lives under the mushroom.
