Another "Get Well":

Yep, another get well card.  Not that I'm complaining!!  The real challenge is to come up with the right critter for the person receiving the card.  In this case, the recipient loves Westies.  I used the Cricut Create-a-Critter cart (great cartridge!!) and Peachy Cheap face stamp.   I only cut the main terrier, the shadow cut, and collar so I could make my own face. I used faux stitching cause I didn't want to drag out my sewing machine.  *Sigh* It's not in a good spot!!  Baker's twine finished it all up.

Baby Card #2:

Treasure Box Designs must be my new favorite site.  Recently bought baby animal files and the cuts couldn't be easier.  The design's main feature are the huge eyes and "you", the artist, filling in with a white pen how you want the end result to be.  Super easy and super cute!  I have yet to invest in My Craft Spot stamps which are small sentiments, perfect for cards.  Perfect for me cause I like to keep things simple.

Really hoping momma-to-be likes the card!!  PP by MME Lost & Found Market Street.

Baby Card #1:  I have two women at work who are expecting baby girls within just a few days of each other.  But the real story behind this card is my constant prowl for sites that have svg files.  So, thanks to Pinterest, I found a fellow crafter who had listed a bunch of sites I hadn't known about.  I purchased the carousel from Treasure Box Designs.  I just love how this turned out!!  

This carousel card is complemented with faux stitching.  PP are from MME Lost & Found stack.  In the top left corner I used a corner punch.   I'm thinking I should add some pearls, but where?

Here is a close up of the horse.  I used pop dots to give more dimension and character to the card.  The flowers were part of the svg file, but weren't cutting very well.  So I used my own small flower punch to complement the carousel.

Happy Birthday, Little Sis!!!  Hope it's a good one!!

My little sister - best friend anyone could ask for.  She is the more 'girly' of the two of us, but she would say she's more goofy.  That is true but . . . in this picture she's peaceful.  She's happy even though she's in the back seat with two little boys.  I don't scrap much girly LO's so I definitely reached for the flowers for this one.  Hope she likes!
My lovely sister, Alissa is featured today following a sketch by Beggahunna.  I used American Crafts Sunshine Collection for this LO.  The flowers are handmade from Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet and the dress and title are from Cricut Paislee.
