Die Cuttin' Divas Any Animal Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I had lunch with one friend on Saturday and then breakfast with another friend on Sunday.  I had not seen either of them for a while so it was so much fun catching up.  Nothing like hanging with your friends and having some laughs.  I've known both of them for a long time and I just love when we get together.

Ok, on to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge, which is any animal.  

I decided to use a cute dog/cat/pig stamp set that I have.  I don't know who makes these stamps because they were a gift in a clear plastic bag and there is no name on the stamps.  They sure are cute!  Here's my card:
 Paper: I used scraps for this card
I stamped and colored the kitties and 
then cut them out on my Brother Scan N Cut
Die for sentiment: My Creative Time
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper
Ribbon: Michaels
Dots: Cloud 9 Designs

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge - What Makes You Happy?

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I hope you are all having a good week.  Welcome to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge, which is What Makes You Happy?  

For me, the beach makes me very happy.  I love nothing more than taking my chair, umbrella and Kindle and heading to the beach.  I love the smells and sounds of the ocean.  It's very peaceful and it always relaxes me.  My favorite time to go to the beach is September and October.  It's still plenty warm here and most of the tourists are gone and the kids are back in school so I don't have to battle with the crowds for a parking space!

Here is the card I made for this week's challenge:
Paper: Recollections
Beach scene die cut:  A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge
Beach sign: Simple Stories
Sun die: My Creative Time
I added Wink of Stella to the sand but it's hard to see

Die Cuttin' Divas Lots of Layers Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I'm so much happier this weekend than I was last weekend.  We had  normal temperatures again (84) and much lower humidity.  

Now on to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge, which is Lots of Layers. Our super awesome sponsor this week is Dreaming Tree.  They not only will be giving one of you a prize for this week's challenge, they gave all of us on the Design Team our choice of files to use for this challenge.  If you have never tried Dreaming Tree SVG files, you should really check them out.  They have beautiful files and lots of instructional videos on how to put their projects together. They also have lots of free files if you want to try them out.
I picked the Give a Gift Bundle for my projects.  There are five items in this bundle.  I made two of them for my projects.  First is the Dainty Gift Bag.  I used Close to My Heart Blossom paper.
The second project I made from the Give a Gift Bundle is the Flat Top Gift Box.   I used Close to My Heart Seaside paper.  The ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

Die Cuttin' Divas "Add a Circle" Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I hope you all had a good weekend.  It was so hot in San Diego this weekend.  It was 103 degrees at my house on Saturday and Sunday it was 98.  We only have one portable air conditioner in our house so we put it in the living room and watched movies all day on Saturday.  It wasn't quite as bad on Sunday so I made my way into my craft room to make my project for this week.

This week our challenge is to add a circle to our projects.  Here's the card I made:
 Paper:  Scraps and Recollection
Animal Dies and sentiment: Lawn Fawn "Wild for You"
Scalloped Circle Die: Lawn Fawn
Sequins: Michaels 

Our awesome sponsor this week is:
As you can tell from my card, I am a huge fan of Lawn Fawn!  I hope you will stop by their site and check out all the cute things that they have to offer.

Die Cuttin' Divas Butterfly Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  It's been very cloudy here in San Diego this past week (they call it June gloom!).  I'm ok with it because that just means it hasn't gotten really hot yet.  I'm not quite ready for the 90-100 degree weather so I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

This week our Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is Butterfly.  I made this cute box and I'm going to put some chocolates in it for my co-worker who has been really helping me out lately.

Butterfly box: Cricut CTMH Artiste Cartridge

Die Cuttin' Divas Embossing Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you all had a good weekend.  Mine was fun.  I had a crafting day with my friend Joanne.  We were crafting for 12 hours!  We laughed a lot, had some good food, lots of chocolate and even a margarita!  Time always flies by when we are crafting.

On to this week's challenge, which is Embossing.  You can use either heat or dry embossing on your project.  I made this card for a friend who will be moving across country in September for her job.  She is so excited to get her dream job, but we will all really miss her.  She is someone I became friends with through crafting.  It's amazing how many wonderful people I have met and become friends with through my crafting.
Paper: Recollections
Scallop Circle, Scooter and Road dies: My Creative Time
Heart Embossing folder: Darice

I am sponsoring our challenge this week.  The prize is this
