April Design Challenge Cards

Can you believe it is the end of the month already?  I can't!  This month's challenge sure was a challenge for me!  Ha!  I do really like the look of this card though. 

Look at what an amazing job Michelle did!  She made this amazing birthday card and it couldn't be cuter! 
 I love what she did on the front.  She made a tag pocket!
 Here is the tag pulled out - isn't it cute?  What a great idea.  This card doesn't really lend itself to writing, so the tag is a wonderful idea - you can write on it!
 This is what she did with the building blocks - cute!!!!  I love the lollipops.  Great job, Michelle!

 Here is my card.  Some friends will be getting married in October and their colors are Fall colors.  So, I thought I'd try my hand at a building block wedding card!  I had a hard time with this card.  I couldn't close it and had to ask my sister for help!  She cleverly figured it out.  I just wasn't folding it correctly.  But now, I've got it!
 I love this paper.  I hadn't opened the package until I was going through my Fall designer papers.  This one really stood out.  I think they'll love the colors.  It matches their "Save The Date" card colors!  I didn't want to decorate the front too much and take away from the pretty paper.  But, I did think it needed some hearts, so I punched them out, ran them through embossing folders, and then decided to do one with a sentiment.
 Here is what I did for my building blocks.  I used an old stamp set that is the alphabet and then punched out the letters using the mini heart stamp.  I hope it reads ok!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!  Enjoy the rest of April too :)

Happy Birthday, Kelsey!

It's my younger niece's birthday!  She loves hippos, so when I saw this hippo punch art found here, I knew I had to CASE it for her.  I'm not sure I did it justice, but this hippo was made with love and I hope brings a smile to Kelsey's adorable face :)  Happy Birthday, Kelsey!  Love and miss you!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Happy Birthday to my Father-In-Law!

Both my Father and Father-In-Law have April birthdays.  So, when we decided to make some cards at work, I knew I needed to make some masculine birthday cards. 

I fell in love with this card by Chat Wszelaki and decided to CASE it.  Here is my version.  I didn't have the same design papers she had, so I improvised with ones I had.  I also decided not to color the image.  I like it as is.  This card is really simple, but I really like it!

For my next card, I CASEd Jill Hilliard's card found here .

I love that you can make this card for male, female, young, or mature, depending on the colors and papers you use!  I thought this DSP pack had some great masculine colors, so designed the card around them.

It's really great what you can create with a little help from some designer paper, punches, and brads!

Happy Birthday, Mr. B!

Thank you for looking and have a great day!
