Alice in Wonderland Belated Birthday Card.

I've had the idea for this card for awhile, bouncing around in my head. (However, it looks nothing like how I imagined it! What's up with that?) Then a couple of my fav challenge blogs had movie/book themes and it was GO time.

Random information - the last movie I watched was Sherlock Holmes. I liked it, it had some good scenes.

I felt I should also do the inside of this card. I thought it would be too "busy" if I added everything I wanted only to the outside.

For these challenges -
Kaboodle Doodles wants embossing.
Charisma Cardz "Quote Me"
Stampin' For the Weekend Movie/book theme.
Stamptacular Sunday wants to see sewing.
Crafts 4 Eternity has a recipe.

You're Cool Card.

I'm so tired today! I wanted to get this post in early in case I don't have the energy for it later. Really, I don't understand how the kids can go go go all day! Mine don't stop, morning to night. Today I'm struggling to keep up.
This card is for a friend of my daughter. Outside says "I think you're cool" Inside says "Hope your birthday is too." Apologies, I forgot to take a pic of the inside.

For these challenges -
Basic Grey Challenges has a color recipe. Blue, gold and white.
Polka Doodles wants to see some animals.

Wedding Card.

I did it, I finally did a stair step card! Already I want to make another. I think a scenic card, all the layers and depth could make a great 3-D project.
Anyhoo, this one is a wedding card. It's not the most romantic or elegant of wedding cards but the bride and groom are more funky and off-beat so I wanted to reflect on that. I also made a super thick envelope to fit it. I didn't want to embellish the envelope too much since it'll be dropped into a giant pile of other envelopes and might get ruined, but I did add a ribbon to tie it closed. Gotta protect the cheque.

For these challenges -
Stampin' For the Weekend asks for ribbons and bows.
Polka Doodles has a wedding theme.
Totally Gorjuss wants texture.
Totally Papercrafts wants distressing.

Thanks for looking,

Enjoy your Friday night!

Hippo Birdie Card.

I recently picked up a copy of the March/April Paper Crafter's magazine. I saw a card in the Lovely As a Tree section and fell in love. I had to try it. However, I also had this Hippo Birdie stamp that I bought for $1 at Michael's and wanted to include it. This is the how the merge worked out.

For this fun challenges -
