OWH Midweek Throwdown - Christmas/Winter in July

I used a sketch from last week's blog hop for this one. I really liked the idea of a square card with something sticking up from it. What came to mind as soon as I saw the sketch was a snowflake.

Cards for OWH

So yesterday I spent most of my day making cards. Here are a few of those I got done. 
Hope you like them!

This one has been on my mind to do for a while. I love how it turned out!


The next two are just different color variations on the same thing. When I finished these, I was very pleased to get the thumbs up from my hubby!



This last one is one that I made for my mother-in-law's birthday and loved so much I made a few more for OWH.

VCMP Challenge #9: Cut it Out

For this challenge we were allowed to use die cuts or punches to create any card we wanted. As I looked through my Cricut Stand and Salute Cartridge I fell in love with this cut! I accented it with a fun star jewel.


VCMP Challenge #8: Jungle Animals

I was so excited about this one! I got to use my newest Cricut Cartridge Noah's ABC Animals! I used the Phrase function to cut out the word Monkey with the fun monkey, then added the word "boy" with my gypsy. It was a lot of work, but so worth the results!
