MCCR Computer Birthday Card

Today's post is any kind of card so I thought I would share this simple male card.
I used Cursive 101 to cut out the computer. I used the Gypsy so not sure on the exact size. The stamp is a random one that I don't know the maker of.  I gave this card to my dad for his birthday.

Stella Say Sketch 118

Here is one of the few cards I have made since school got back in. The flags are cute from Cricut Craftroom from Party Picks and Pennants. The happy birthday stamp is Stampin Up. The paper is from DCWV Stack 8.
I used a Bugaboo image that I colored with Copics and added Glossy Accents to the balloon. I chalked the edge of the image and used Spellbinders to cut it out and the Lacy Ovals for the one behind it. 
I followed Bugaboo's sketch for this weeks challenge.

1st day gift

This weeks theme is teacher or back to school for My Cricut Craft Room. This project fits both.
I made 25 of these for my students first day of school gifts. I used the turtle on Create a Critter and cut it as 1 1/2 inch then added the Peachy Keen faces.
I attached with painters tape because this can be a bookmark after they take the pencil bag off. I wanted to make something that the kids could use. I hate to do all this work and then have them thrown away so I tried to think of something useful for these to me and bookmark came to mind.
Head on over to to see the rest of the wonderful projects.
