You're the Cat's Meow!

Another birthday card for a female.
This card features a cat from Lawn Fawn's "Critters in the Burbs" and papers from Simple Stories "Snap" 6x6 pad (LOVE that pad!!). 

I made this using the 10 Minute Craft Challenge and colors.
This challenge is so fun.  
One time I knocked over a trash can dashing across the room.
This time my hands were shaking trying to tie the twine.  I was nervous!
This card took 8:40.7
Most of that time was spent coloring and fussy cutting the cat. 

I am entering this card into the following challenge:

Robot Card

I was craving a little craft time so I decided to play with the
 current Seize the Birthday Sketch.
Made the Polaroid piece using the Spellbinders square dies.  
Found the idea on Nina B Designs' blog. 

Robot Birthday Card

The robot was stamped and colored with Copics. 
 I paper pieced the larger gray pieces.
A dab of Glossy Accents and Liquid Pearl was added for pizazz!

You're Such a Deer!

Sharing a birthday card I made for my niece.
Features  stamp sets from The Craft's Meow "Typically Teen and "Oh, Deer".
The design was inspired by their March sketch.
Papers are "Kissing Booth" by Basic Grey.

I love the Polaroid look so much.
This one was made using the "George" cartridge on my Cricut (had to practice first)
I saw a blog that suggested using the square Spellbinders dies and I now have them to try.
I think that will be easier.  
The banner was handmade.  

The deer was stamped on white paper, colored with Copics and cut out.

You're Such a Deer!
