Lots of Cards.... Lots of Pictures...

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you guys
had a wonderful weekend! I know I did! It was my
19th Wedding Anniversary! So I made a lovely dinner
and we just kind of hung out together! It made for a
nice relaxing Sunday! :o) I also made him a card....
Nooo surprise! :o) But I also managed to get a few
other cards done as well... The Cricut Circle Blog is
Celebrating their 1 year Anniversary and they have
a few challenges going on.... Normally I don't participate
in the challenges... But I got 4 of the challenges done
already and have 2 left to do.... They're designed so
I just gotta cut the pieces out and put together...
Sooo Today you'll See 4 different cards! WHAT?
4 different cards? I hope you like them all... Here ya go!

One of the challenges was to make a project using
any of the Circle Cartridges... I chose SOPHIE!

Card stock, Window Punches - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - DCWV
Bling - Bazzill
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Cartridge - Sophie (Frame) Cut @ 3 1/2"
(Birds) Cut @ 3"

Just a quick side view to show the popped up LOVE birds!
I soooo LOVE how this turned out! :o)

Another Challenge was to make a Monochromatic project!
I gotta tell ya this was HARD for me! It's just not
something I would normally make... Sooo I was
Happy to try it out! That's what a challenge is for....
To Challenge yourself! :o) I chose shades of Brown....

Card stock - Stampin' Up, Bo Bunny, DCWV, Core'dination
Ribbon - My Stash
Ink - Stampin' Up
Stamp - Peachy Keen Monster Mash 3/8"
Cartridges - Art Philosophy (Card Shape) Cut @ 4 1/4"
(Leaves) Cut @ 2" & 2 1/4"
Simply Charmed (Happy Fall) Cut @ 1 1/2"
I popped up the Happy Fall and the Leaves...
I'm actually very happy with how this turned out! :o)

Next Challenge was to create something with your Imagine!
You guys know I LOVE my Imagine! Sooo I came up with this
really fun Halloween Card! :o)

Card stock - Stampin' Up, American Crafts, Bo Bunny
Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Cartridge - Buccaneer (Pirate) Cut @ 2 3/4"
I used the Imagine Default Shape (Circle) Cut @ 3 1/4" 
and Flood Filled it with the Buccaneer Designer Paper
Then I used the Imagine Default Shape (Square) Cut @ 4 1/2"
and Flood Filled it with the Buccaneer Designer Paper
Happy Hauntings (Happy Halloween) Cut @ 1"

Here's a side view to show the added layers from
Mr. Pirate! I used the Layers feature to pop up his
Hat, Boot, Jacket Trim, Shirt Trimming, Face...

Another Challenge was to create something using
your Cuttlebug! Another one of my Favorite tools!
Of course... by the time I started on this card it was
super duper late.... Like 4am! Sooo It's not my favorite
card! Anywhoo here's how I made it....

Card stock, Ribbon - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Basic Grey
Embossing Folder - Pumpkin Harvest
Cartridge - Thanksgiving (Pilgrim) Cut @ 3"
I cut her out once then I used the "Hide Contour"
for a second one to be the background...
(Thankful Heart) Cut @ 1 3/4"
This is also an odd size card (4 1/4 x 6)
not my normal size! :o)

Well that's all I have for you today! Boy I'm pooped! LOL
