Last night was the 8th grade graduation dance at the school I work at. The theme was "Under the Big Top!" How fun and what a perfect chance to use my Carousel Cartridge.

Hello everyone. Welcome to a new Tuesday and a new Die Cuttin' Divas challenge. This week our theme is
I decided to to play a little with my Fiskars edger and make a paper rainbow. I gathered my colors and tore a strip of each before adhering them together and using some brads to put my rainbow on my card. I made another one for the inside of the card as well.
Die Cuttin Divas. I know at the end of the school year time is very limited, but that just means soon i will have a whole summer for playing in my craft space!!

We all have those days when things do not go the way we want them to. On days when things are not so great for me I tend to make cards with a happier theme. I made this card back when I was really wishing we had some sun shine Now that it is here I am finally remembering to share it.
I started with some paper I had just bought from the DCWV Kidlet stack. I selected this fun layered sun off the Create a Critter cartridge and embossed it with some small hearts.
I forgot to take the photo of the whole inside before I put my note in. Anyways just a simple card to share with my bloggie fiends on a Monday morning. Often people need a little pick me up at the start of the week. Hope you start your week off just right.

I started by letting my daughter pick out the dinosaur of her choice for her friend, the birthday boy! She selected one from Create A Critter and I enlarged him to fit our huge bag. We made him a fun blue to stick out on the green bag and gave him a glitter tummy and stripped tail. Next, came his fun little hat which I cut using 3 Birds on Parade. I stuck on our great dino using some pop-up dots to make him stand out a little form the green bag (plus these stick really well to the shiny bags.
All that was left was the letters, which were cut from the Dinosaur Tracks cartridge. They looked great and we got a huge smile form the birthday boy himself when he first saw the bag.
*All the paper was from the DCWV Citrus stacks (patterns and colored card stocks)

I find sympathy cards among the hardest to create for someone. Recently I had to create one for a friend who lost her mother.
