Anything but a Square Challenge

CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE this week is to make a  card or creation that is not a square!  So easy right?  I made this card for an order,  for my niece’s friend who just had her baby a week and a half ago.   I knew I would use it for my DT sample as it fit this challenge perfectly; it’s anything but a square, right!  Wags ‘n Whiskers is our challenge sponsor this week!   I used Cricut Design Studio to weld the carriage shape into a card and I also cut the extra carriage layers and butterfly shapes using the Cricut Expression too.  I used the HERITAGE and STRAIGHT FROM THE NEST cartridges.   If you would like the .cut file I added a link to it below. The colors were inspired by the colors of the nursery and butterfly theme too.  The baby’s name of course, is Alexis! .CUT FILE DOWNLOAD HERE Thanks for stopping by today!  You know I enjoy your company!!

Butterfly Kisses

Hi everyone!   After spending the day sick in bed, I finally felt well enough to have a bowl of soup which I managed to keep down, thankfully!  The boys spent the afternoon at a friends house, as I was in no shape to look after them.  My husband was working and could not get away, so I had to fend for myself.   I must say I wished someone would have been here to look out for me, like I do for everyone when they’re sick!  Oh, well enough of the poor me stuff…   I’m sure I’ll be better tomorrow, as I was feeling well enough by this evening.  I even managed to finish off this card I started yesterday. I think this digi image from Squigglefly is just so precious, don’t you?  Angela Donato is the artist behind this image called “Hugs”, and you can find it HERE. I used lilac cardstock for the mat and base.  I cannot say what the dp is as it was a gift from Rosana, my sweet blogging friend! …
