Havin' a Ball!

Hey blogger peeps!

Got a Birthday card to share today.
And I'm just havin' a ball playin' with these new card kits that I got from Scrapbooking Mad.
This ones called a four fold card that they've entitled Forget Me Not.

Entering in these challenges:
Aud Sentiment - #83 Anything Goes
Divas By Design - #86 Happy Birthday
Eureka Stamps - #44 Anything Goes
Penny's - #131 1 Image, 2 Papers, 3 Embellies
Word Art Wednesday - #84 Anything Goes

What's really unique about these kits are, after you choose which ones you want and purchase them, (you'll want more than one!) they are pages of graphics that you down load, then you can print them, cut them out and use them as many times as you want.
I just love 'em!!

They have A TON of freebies. The prices vary from a few cents to about $5.00 for templates. (average $1.62) You have to convert pounds to dollars, as it's a British site,  but the graphics are superb!

Just a really clever concept.

Don't know if you can see it, but there's a couple of layers that's popped up, the umbrellas, bows, flowers, middle section and senti.

They also have a LARGE selection and some of the most unique card styles I've ever seen.

I cut these out by hand as I'm not very well versed at my Silhouette or SVG cut files... YET!
But if you have a Silhouette or the like, and you know how to use cut files, then you could probably use your machine to cut these out with.
You'll definitely be seeing more of these from me.

That all for now.

Father' Day Card

Mornin' blogger friends!

Got a Father's Day card to share today.

Entering in these challenges:
Art Impressions  - #112 Masculine
Aud Sentiment - #82 Anything Goes
Cheery Lynn Designs - #84 Creative Corners
Crafts 4 Eternity - #127 For the Boys
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - #69 For the Men
Eureka Stamps - #43 Father's Day
Kaboodle Doodles - #175 For Your Favorite Guy
Loves Rubber Stamps - #56 Masculine
Milk Coffee - Father's Day
QKR Stampede - #43 For Dad
Stamp n Doodle - Father's Day
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner - #66 Father's Day
Word Art Wednesday - #84 Anything Goes

Corners are by Cheery Lynn; dies inside are Spellbinders; paisley paper by Hot Off the Press; "Sending you..." stamp by Anna Griffin; inner stamps by Just One More Stamp and Stampendous.

I printed the template and cut the corner dies out on the lighter blue paper.
I paper pieced the tie, collar, buttons, pockets and vest.
The collar on the template seemed a bit too short to me, so when I cut out the pieces I made it about 1/4" longer on each side.
After I assembled everything on the shirt, it seemed a bit too small all by itself, so I adhered it to a single sheet of the darker blue paper and cut it about 3/8" larger than the shirt all the way around and added the corners.

That's it for today!
