Mommy to be

Here is a card I created for my niece's shower and thought it would be great to enter into-CCCC #11- Forever Young
I was inspired by the "Gypsy A to Z" DVD.  On the video they take a couple from a different cart and transform the girl to look preggers.  I did this with the Forever Young and George and Basic shapes carts.

Here is what I used:
Carts- Forever Young and George and Basic Shapes
Gypsy- used to add a triangle and oval to her belly 
Patterned paper- Nana's Nursery DCWV
Cardstock- Recollections from Michaels
Ribbon- from stash
Sentiment- printed from computer
Other- Sakura white gelly pen, pop dots, ATG, Memento Ink

I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by!!

Mickey Ears Birthday Card

  My nephew turned one on March 1st and his birthday party is tomorrow.  He is having a Mickey themed birthday party so I decided to make him a card that looks like the Mickey ears you can get at Disney World.  I had a little bit of a ruff time with this card.  I don't have a Disney\Mickey cart so I used my gypsy to weld circles and ovals together from George and Basic Shapes to make it.  Through lots of trial and error I finally came up with a version I could live with.  I think it looks much better in person.   Hope you like it!!

Here is what I used:

Cart- George and Basic shapes and Doodletype
paper- Bazzill
ribbon- black satin-Papertrey Ink and the skinny black ribbon is from my stash
Disney embellishment
Font- LD walt from lettering delight
Other- white gel pen, ATG, Gypsy
