Cricut Carz Challenge #40

Hi everyone,

Just want to welcome you to my blog, I hope everyone is doing well on this Wednesday and is ready for a new challenge with CCC, you may enter it by clicking here. This weeks challenge is to make a card using scalloped circles, ovals, squares or rectangles. Use any cartridge and any theme you'd like. Please feel free to join the challenge and invite your friends, we look forward to seeing all of your creations...

Here's a little inspiration, I am calling it "The Bird's Nest" This is a Z fold card, I used the Create a Critter, Graphically Speaking and Storybook carts. I hope you enjoy my take on this challenge.

The Bird's Nest

*Brown and white cardstock is from Joanne fabrics Value Packs.
*Brown paper is cut at 4x10 1/2, scored at 3 1/2 and 7
*White paper cut at 3 1/2 x 3 7/8
*Polka Dot paper is by Prima Marketing, The Breathe Paper Collection from Biglot, it is cut at 3 1/4 x 3 3/4
*Bird is cut at 2 1/2 the nest is at 1 3/4 and the other is at 1 1/4, The bird's house is at 2 1/2. On the first nest, I used a corner punch to make the nest look a little more realistic, or you could cut at 1 1/2
*The scallops are from Graphically Speaking and are cut at 3 1/4 and 1 3/4
*The circles are from Create a Critter and are cut at 1 1/2 and 1 1/4
*The scalloped square is from the Storybook cart and is cut at 2 1/2 and I used a square punch and that size is 1 7/8
*I also used Martha Steward White Opaque Marker and Brownstone Ink

Don't forget, invite your friends and please have fun!

Color Throwdown #103/Paper Playtime #10

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for following my blog, I really appreciate it!

I have a couple of challenges I am entering in, Color Throwdown #103 and Paper Playtime #10...If you like challenges, you would love these. I will post the links at the bottom.

I recently purchased Graphically Speaking cart and I really think I am gonna like it. Walmart had it on clearance for $23.00. So on this cart I found this clock and I just knew I wanted to do something with it. Over at Paper Playtime, their challenge is "Miss You" thought I could incorporate time with that, the colors are from Color Throwdown. Here is my take on both challenges, the last view is the inside of the card.
