Hey there.....

For this next card I was asked to do a birthday card for someone who is turning 60.  The specifics were either a billboard with 'Happy 60th Birthday' on it or something with a truck.  Of course I added both.  Once I came up with the idea it came together fairly quickly.   Here's what I came up with....

 Card front -
I cut off about an inch from the bottom of the front of the card and added a black mat. For the billboard I cut a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges really well. I created the 'pole' from a scrap piece of paper that I colored both front and back with a gray marker.   I attached it to the bottom of the white card stock then attached th billboard to the front of the card with foam tape. I'm not sure if it really looks like a billboard but it's close, I think.....

 Inside -

The truck doesn't have a layer feature so I made my own.  I cut it out 3 times and pieced it together.  I added the road because it looked like it was floating.  I really like the way it turned out and so did the person who asked me to make it.
Materials Used:
Create A Critter
Paper Dolls for Everyday
Gypsy Wanderings
Bic Mark It (Cloud Nine Gray)
Stickles (Silver)
Glossy Accents 
Bakers Twine
Tim Holz (Brushed Corduroy)
Bazzill Cardstock

 Hey there....
Cardz TV #114 "Critter Cuties"

I did this card because I just love this snake and that's very unlike me because I don't like snakes at all!  It's a good thing he's cute... oh, and not real.

I added flocking to the body of the snake, hey wait snakes aren't velvety.  Oh well, he's still cute!  I cut the sun from 'Doodlecharms' and stamped the little boy's face with Peachy Keen Stamps.  I am happy with the results.

Hey there...

I'm entering - Cardz TV - Anything Goes

For this card I used Crocs Rule and Doodlecharms for the duck.  I really, really like the way it came out.  How cute is this cut of the crocodile in the bathtub?  And what could be better than taking a bath in rain?  It's hard to see the sentiment in the photo - it says "You're scent-sational!"
