My husband is the BBQ master at our house, so I thought I would make him a card with a BBQ.

I found this 3D box card at the Silhouette store.


The fun paper is by Authentique. What's better with a BBQ than a beer, a glass of wine, or a fun cocktail?



Supplies used: cardstock - red, yellow; patterned paper by Authentique, cut file from Silhouette Studio.

Die Cuttin' Divas "Anything Goes" Challenge

Well, I don't know about you, but my summer got off to a great start this last weekend.

I got to spend two days of it having adventures like hiking and going to the pool with my grandchildren. So much fun to have them to spoil for a couple days :)

Since Tuesday has rolled around again, it is time for a new challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

Our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas this week is "Anything Goes".

.


Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is:




I just received my Spellbinders card kit in the mail and it had some fun dies included in it.

I decided to use them to create a pretty card, along with some papers and stickers included in the same kit.




I also used the "you" out of an "I love you" die I had from Simon Says Stamp.



The two pictures are from two different light sources. Makes a big difference, doesn't it?

Supplies used: cardstock - white, navy, gold; patterned paper, stickers dove die and embroidery hoop die from Spellbinders May card kit; You die from Simon Says Stamp.

Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.

Die Cuttin' Divas Use A Turtle Challenge

Don't you think turtles are amazing creatures? They move so slowly, but they have such determination!

I have been to Hawaii several times and I never cease to be amazed by the sea turtles there. They are so big and it is so neat to see them swimming in the ocean.

Our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas this week is "Use A Turtle".

.



While I didn't use a sea turtle on my card, I was inspired by a video on Facebook to create my card. It was a video of one turtle helping right side another turtle who was on his back. It was such a cool video!

The cut file for this card is from Silhouette Studio.




Don't you just love the look on his face?

It's like, dang, what do I do now?



Supplies used: cardstock - white, black, 2 shades of green, yellow, pink; patterned apars from Recollections and Best Creations; Silhouette Studio cut file.

Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.
