Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday. I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  It was so hot and humid in San Diego for the past 5 days!  So gross when you don't have air conditioning.  It was still nice to have 3 days off but I am looking forward to heading back to work today so I can be in air conditioning all day.

This is a new month (what happened to August???) and that means it's time for our sketch challenge based on this sketch:

Since I hardly ever make masculine cards, I decided to make a masculine birthday card.  This way the next time I need a guy card, I'll already have one instead of having to make one quickly.
Paper: The Paper Studio
Fish Die: A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge

Die Cuttin' Divas Thinking of You Challenge

Hello and welcome to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge, which is Thinking of You.  Who doesn't love to get a card from a friend that says Thinking of You? It's nice to send these types of cards to friends who are going through a hard time.

I decided to make a card with a flower on it.  My favorite flowers are Gerbera Daisies and I just love this die that looks like them.  I've had it for years and always bring it out when I need a card with a flower.

Die Cuttin' Divas Unicorn Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was quiet but good.  I was trying to get my supplies together for a three day crop next weekend.  I can't wait to see my friends and spend some time crafting.

This week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is to make a project using a Unicorn.  I saw this adorable image on the Ruffles and Rain Boots website and it was free!  I thought it would make a cute card:

font on my Cricut Explore

Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to our July sketch challenge!  I still cannot believe it is July already.  I am looking forward to a long weekend off from work and seeing fireworks on July 4th! That is one of my favorite things and I look forward to seeing them every year. There is a small park right down the street from us and we can see our town's fireworks display from there so it's very convenient.

Since it's a new month, we are starting off with our sketch challenge based on this sketch:

Die Cuttin' Divas Giraffe Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you all had a good weekend and got to celebrate Father's Day with your families. We lost my dad 10 years ago and he  passed away the day before Father's Day so it's always a bittersweet day for me.  I try to remember all the good memories I have of my dad (and there are a lot of them!).  
 
This week our Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is to make a project using a Giraffe (World Giraffe Day is June 21st).  I have always had a soft spot for giraffes because years ago I worked in the offices of Toys "R" Us and their mascot was Geoffrey Giraffe!  Geoffrey always showed up at our company picnics and the kids just loved him!

Here is the card I made:
Giraffe: Close to my Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge
Oval: Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
Paper: Stampin' Up
Star Sequins: Michaels
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper
