Day 246 : Peekabo

The latest card that I created (yes I am a card making machine this week) is one for the Peekabo challenge at 365 Cards.  I LOVE that they have a new challenge every day and as much as I would like to think that I could make a card every single day, the reality is that my son would rather me play Peekabo with him than make a Peekabo card.   I did find time to create one though!  I hope that you find it as cute as I do!

All 3 of the Envelopes do come out of the mailbox!
The Card was created with the following:
Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge
Cardstock Plain Paper
Stack 7 Pattern Paper

Die Cuttin Divas Football Challenge #39

I am going to barely get these in under the wire and there are a ton of adorable designs already over at the site Die Cuttin Divas, but this week was a fun challenge to do something with a football.  Here in Wisconsin we take our football teams pretty seriously (I happen to be a Cowboys fan) so I made the Packer Card for my husband and we are both die hard Badger Fans.  I am also showing off my son's Wisconsin Bucky Badger halloween costume below the Challenge Image!  Thank you Die Cuttin Divas for giving me a fun challenge this week!
This week I used:
Fathers Day Cricut Cartridge
Base Camp & George Cricut Cartridges
DMC Floss for the Pompoms
Stack 7 Printed Paper

My Lil Guy all Dressed Up As Bucky Badger!

Cupcake Inspiration & Papercraft Star Challenge

I made this card for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge & Challenge #69- A Flourish.  
Every week on Cupcake Inspiration they give you a photo of a cupcake and you use the image to inspire a card design.  I had a lot of fun with it!
Papercraft Star had a photo of a flourish so I finally got to use my black flourish that I have been wanting to incorporate into a card.  I think it turned out pretty cute!
Cartridges Used:
Speaking of Fall

Cardstock Papers
Stack7 Pattern Paper
DCWV Glitter Paper
