Hallmark MB weekly challenge 4

Here's the card i made for the 4th weekly challenge on the Hallmark message board. The challenge was to use the flower from the George and basic shapes cart.

Next are more ampersand cards i've made, a different one for a wedding and one baby girl card, i'm loving making these cards so much. I've been told they are so effective and original.

Another inspired by me Ampersand card

Another member of UKS (crafty betsy) was also inspired by my Ampersand wedding card, so she made this one of her own, didn't she do a great job?, and i must say i'm loving seeing these different versions of my original design.
Don't forget if you make one too, let me know so i can post a picture of it on here.

I made this card yesterday, i struggle like most card makers to make cards for guys. I thought this one could do for either sex.

I used Street Signs solutions cart for the Octagon shapes, (i welded 2 together on DS for the card blank), Happy Birthday is from Beyond Birthdays, and the stars are all from the George cart.

If the shoe fits...

Did you know that has it's own message board? Well they do and it's small and very friendly. They have just started a weekly challenge thread, to get us all using certain cuts from Cricut carts. This week the challenge was to use the stamp shape on Base Camp. I got straight to work and this is what i produced. The shoe and flowers are from the Wedding solutions cart.

BBTB Ampersand contest

This is my entry for the contest over at BBTB. The criteria for the contest was to make a project using the Ampersand (the 'and' sign) from either George or Plantin Schoolbook. I used the one from Plantin Schoolbook. I welded two together using CDS to make the card base, and also used Plantin Schoolbook for the Mr and Mrs, which i also welded on the CDS. All the other cuts are from the Wedding solutions cart, except the scalloped oval tag and oval tag on the box, which are from Alphalicious.

This is the box i made for my card.
