Guest Designer at Die Cuttin' Divas and Blog Candy!

Giveaway on this post: Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge!
 
 
Hello everyone!! Today, I am happy to say that I am a Guest Designer over at Die Cuttin' Divas. Thank you, Georgiana, for letting me guest design! This week the challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas is "Challenge #113 ~ Anything Goes". My niece’s birthday was last week so I chose to use her birthday card for my guest designer day. I used one of my favorite cartridges—Teddy Bear Parade (blog candy alert!). The teddy bear was cut using that cartridge. The card base, window and window frame were cut from Lacy Labels using my Gypsy. I added invisible thread to the teddy bear inside the window so she would spin around like she is dancing. Here is my project, I hope you like it.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Lay Off Of My Blue Suede Shoes

Hello everyone! Here is a birthday card I made for my sister. We both like Elvis (who doesn't?). My favorite memory of Elvis, is the younger version where he is on stage in that black leather outfit (♥), where my sister's is of the slightly older Elvis in white polyester. I found this cute Elvis bear (The King) at Paper Piecings by Nikki.com and thought it would be a perfect birthday card for her. Love it! I am going to enter it in the following challenges:
