Love You So Stinkin Much!!

This is for my husband for his birthday. He will be celebrating while we are on vacation. I have seen several cards lately made with a skunk and the "Love you so stinkin much" sentiment (no pun intended) that I knew I just had to make one for Tom. He will appreciate the humor and of course his gift in the can. The can has a pull top so I opened it from the bottom to put in his gifts. He will be receiving a gift card and a bottle of Beano which will all be wrapped up in new underwear. I hope the swirls show up in the pics. I added them so it looks like the skunk has sprayed. I used my fiskars texture plates to give the skunk some dimension. The inside of the card has a bomb with swirls so it resembles a stink bomb. The three heart brads on the front of the card are to represent our two sons and me.

Swirl: Joys of the Season cart cut at 2.5 and 1.25 inches

Dinosaur Birthday Card

Made this card for a friend who is turning 3! I loves watching Diego on tv so his gift is the Diego rescue vehicle with dinosaurs. All dinosaurs and the trees are from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cart. The balloons are from Celebrations cart and the happy birthday phrase is from the Wild Cart cartridge. I didn't write sizes of the cuts down for this card. The card is fairly large. It measures 5 1/2x 8 1/2.

Simple Scrapbook Layouts

These two layouts were super fast and easy. The paper is from My Mind's Eye. The plaid is called Check Him Out and the stars came from a sheet called Twinkle Town. I used just one Cricut cut to make the two layouts. I cut the plaid paper using the Marquee cut on the Storybook cart (7 3/4inches) I then used the negative from that paper to make the second layout. The Twinkle Town paper was covered in the stars so I just had to cut them for an easy embellishment.

Minnie Mouse Gift Bag

Happy Birthday Kim!!!! My sister-in-law is 40!!!! They just came back from a Disney trip so thought she might like this bag. she can always use the cuts in her scrapbook. HaHaHa! She will have to wait until we next visit to find out what is in the bag (not sure when that will be since we live in different states). Made this using the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge and the Mickey Font cartridge for Minnie and the gift tag. The words Happy Birthday are from the Celebrations Cricut cart.
