A great day for cards!

Yesterday was a non craft day since all three of my granddaughters were here visiting.  So today I was busy busy doing some of the challenges I had planned.  The first two I did with my Imagine. 
This card was done with the Imagine Nursery Tails cartridge.  I also used the Baby Words embossing folder.  I layered the top cuts and pop dotted them.   
I am entering this card in the Cricut 360 challenge- 
which was to use pastel colors, embossing and make a baby card.

This card was done with the Imagine More Cards cartridge.  I printed and cut the same parts twice.  
On the front I layered all the pieces and then deleted the words some of the words.  I pop dotted all the pieces and added black gems for owl eyes.  I then stamped the center to say whoo whoo and added 4  you  to front. I colored the stamped image with Prismacolor pencils to match the colors in the paper.  
On the inside I used the cut as it was printed without layers.   
This card is for the Tacky Tuesday challenge which is to use an owl and the word whoo.

This card is Damask Decor which I love.  I thought it was perfect for a monochromatic card.  This card and front cut is from page 33.  It is cut at 4 inches and then the inside is cut at 3.65 inches.  The ribbon was in my stash.  I then added gems.  

This card is for the Cricut Circle Blog challenge for Tuesday which is to make a monochromatic card and 2 Cricut cuts.

For the Halloween card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder with black ink on the folder. I cut the extra row of embossing I didn't need on the front and used it on the inside.  I added purple and orange twine.  I cut the monster from Mini Monsters and added some fun eyes I got at Michaels.  The stamp was from the $1 section last year.

For this card I used the Create a Critter frog.  The papers were from the DCWV Lemon Stack and the Green Tea Stack.  I cut out the phrase Shop till you drop from Paisley and then cut off the S so it says Shop till you Drop.  The Its your birthday on the inside came from Just a Note (on E2).  

This card is for the BBTB2 challenge which is to use the frog from page 24 of Create a Critter.  The frog is cut from the DCWV Lemon Stack and Green Tea stack.  The phrase Shop till  you drop came from Paisley.  I then cut off the s so it said hop till you drop.  It's your Birthday on the inside came from Just a Note (on the E2).  
Thanks so much for looking and for your comments.  Happy craftin!
