Die Cuttin' Divas Happy Birthday Challenge


Today is August 23rd, and just happens to be my birthday!

Since it is Tuesday it is time for a new challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas 

Can you guess what the challenge is this week?

Big coincidence - this week our challenge is Happy Birthday!!!





.










I created a shaped butterfly card by welding two butterfly shapes from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge using the Cricut Craft Room program.








I dressed up the butterfly a bit with glitter around the edges and some pearls on the wings.










I cut out a couple more butterflies, layered them and dressed them up with twine, a shell button, a brad and a couple of stick pins.









Supplies used: card stock - vanilla; pattern papers by Authentique, Lawn Fawn, and Making Memories; twine - May Arts; button and brad - my stash; stamps - Paper Smooches; Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge; ink - Memento, glitter - Martha Stewart

Die Cuttin' Divas Back To School Challenge


It's hard for me to believe, but my grandkids have already gone back to school today!

What happened to the days when you didn't go back to school until after labor day?

Seems like they should be swimming instead of cooped up in a classroom in the heat. Oh well!

Since it's Tuesday we have a new challenge for you over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

This week our challenge is back to school.

I made some pencil holders for my grandchildren to take to their teachers as back to school gifts.







The cut file is from Silhouette Studio and is called 3D TEACHER PENCIL HOLDER GIFT
