For this card I printed the “C” “U” and “Sundae” on the Cricut using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge and the sundae picture is clip art. I stamped the inside using the CTMH August Stamp of the Month (available from your consultant 8/1/09). The blue sheer ribbon is from my stash.

When I saw this card a couple months ago, I loved it. Here is a copy of Tammy Wark's card from May 19, 2009: Thanks Tammy for letting me show you my variation of your card.
The paper I used is from the DCWV Whimsy Stack. I could not find a ribbon that I liked for the card, so I did not put one on it, plus it would cover up the little animals on my card. The sentiment "Friends to the End" is a CTMH stamp.
I do not like my card as much as Tammy's, I think because I could not embellish it as much since I did not want to cover up the cute little animals.
Recently one of the teenagers in our church was killed along with two other boys in a traffic accident. So I had a really hard time trying to think of a card and how I wanted it to look. I am still not sure this is the "right" card for the situation, but it will do. I placed white scallop edged card stock that I inked with CTMH sorbet and placed it on a pink card base. I had a rub-on that I bought from Big Lots a long time ago and then put pink ribbons in the corners of the card.
Thanks for taking a look at my card today.
My sister-in-law will be having surgery next week, so I used a quote from a K&Company Card Quotables Sticker Pad then added two DCWV Embellishments pressed flowers stickers from my stash. A very simple and quick card. Thanks for stopping by to view this card.
For this challenge I used a black card base then used the Storybook Cricut cartridge to cut the accent/frame using red cardstock -- I put red glitter to it. I used the home accents cricut cartridge to cut the word "love". The red ribbon is from my stash. Thanks for stopping by.

Here is my card for todays challenge. I used something that we had bought last school year, Elmers Squeeze 'n Brush paint. The is pretty neat, it has a built in brush and you just squeeze and brush it on. I brushed blue paint for the sky.
I then stamped the tree on the card using the CTMH Treetops. I also stamped the same image on another piece of cardstock. I cut only the top of the tree out and put red brads on it and then used foam squares to place the tree top right on top of the other tree top that I had stamped on the card. I inked the bottom portion of the card for grass and used some Studio G stamps for flowers and a tan cat in the lower left portion of the card. This is a completely different card for me. Thanks for taking the time to look at my card for today.

All papers are from the scrap bin of our stash. I made a pin wheel with red and white papers and put a red button in the middle. I had a lot of trouble trying to figure out where to put the black and white paper, but finally decided to put it diagonal. Thanks for looking at my card today.
We received the new cuttlebug folder that we ordered from the HSN last week. I used the green metallic paper from the DCWV stack, put vellum under the cut out square and stamped Happy Birthday on the inside of the card. It is hard to see the words through the vellum unless it is laying flat. Thanks for looking at my card today.

For this challenge I used the Close to My Heart - August Stamp of the Month, available 8/1/09 from my CTMH consultant. The background is CTMH olive card stock, the oval is white card stock blotted with the foam texture tool available from CTMH using the sweet leaf stamp pad, and the diamond is also edged with the sweet leaf stamp pad. Rick rack is sweet leaf and the brads are from my stash.
Thanks for looking.
