Celebrate -- Baby Shower card

 Another last minute card.  Imagine that!  That's all I have time for it seems.  Tonight I am going to a baby shower for a friend of the family.  I got on the blog and looked at the last sketch which is sketch Mojo 251.  It is the following...
Over at for yesterday (Saturday, day 150) there is a challenge "I've been framed"  it is to create a frame for the card and embellish 2 corners of that frame.
I used my cricut with the serenade cartridge for the frame.  Used 2 different double sided cardstock papers from doodlebug design inc. called cheery o's and alphababies.  I love it when I can use both sides of the papers for coordinating paper, means I don't have to continue to rumage through my stash to find things that match!  The jammies are a stamp that I stamped in the cardstock and fussy cut out.  I also used embroidery floss to attach the buttons (from my stash) and to border around the celebrate stamp.

Mojo 249 -- Happy Anniversary

I am on a roll today, 2 cards in one day!  Mom & Dad's Anniversary is the day after Dad's birthday, so another card was needed. 

I used this sketch from  ...

All materials are from crate paper, portrait collection.  There was a 12x12 sheet of calendar in there.  I cut out the July one and looked up the calendar for that month in 1976 when Mom and Dad got married.  Filled it in, and stamped a small heart on the wedding day.  I did line the outside edge of the calendar with silver marker to make a border.  I also stamped the sentiment, and added the "memorable" tag ( also included in the collection ) tada! 

Happy birthday -- Elk

Wow, I normally don't have time to make cards anymore.  You can tell by how much I post on here! 

Well, dad's birthday is coming up fast and I thought I would go ahead and make his card when I seen the challenge last sunday over at day 130.  The challenge was this sketch...
