Caardvarks & Creative Cuts and More

I couldn't be happier then to have the two design teams that I am on hook up for a challenge! Creative Cuts and More is sponsoring Caardvark's bridal & baby showers themed challenge.
Here are two of my creations, you can see the rest as well as my design team mates from both groups, Caardvarks and Creative Cuts and More over at the Caardvarks blog. Then hop on over to the Caardvarks Flickr gallery for a ton of other fantastic ideas!!

The baby shoes, which are my favorite die cut and then this cute diaper card. The diaper card that I made here was altered a bit. I cut all of the flaps off of the front except the left sided one. Then I adhered them all together, so that it could open up like a regular card instead of a pocket type of card, which I made here.

Have fun looking at all of the other fabulous creations made by all of my friends and DT team mates.

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome CC&M Blog Hoppers!

I am the last blog in the CC&M blog hop. I hope you have all been inspired to make some fun birthday creations. If this is your first stop, then please head on over to Die Cut Diva where the blog hop begins!

I am so honored that the owner of Creative Cuts and More, Terry asked me to create not one, but two card kits. Terry wanted the theme for her first two card kits to be "Birthday". Each kit will allow you to create 12 cards. You will have plenty of left overs even after your cards are finished! The kits includes 12 die cut cards, envelopes, 6 full sheets of 12 x 12 Doodlebug pattern paper, rub-ons, small party themed die cuts and lots of other little goodies! Each of these cards were made using ONLY what is included in the kit!

After you have checked out the samples here, be sure to read all the way at the bottom to see how you can win the "Girl's Birthday" card kit from my blog courtesy of Creative Cuts and More!

Just had to share and brag a little...

My little brother, Dean well he isn't really little...he is 31 years old and over 6' tall, made these for the 4th of July. Aren't they cute, even the inside is red white and blue cake!! I am bummed that I didn't get to try one. Unfortunately for me Dean lives in California and I am in Colorado, so he sent me these pictures.
WOW, what a guy...a Kung Fu Master and he bakes. You should try the cheesecakes he makes...yummy! He is still single ladies! LOL

Thanks for letting me brag a little...
Big hugs to my little brother Dean. Mom and I are proud of you and we miss you!
