Another card and a new challenge

I Just finished this and entered it into the Tacky Tuesday's Challenge  Facebook.
The rules: This weeks challenge we are using the Chick from the Simply Charmed cart (Page 35), you will also need to use the word "chick" somewhere in the sentiment on you card/layout.  That was it. pretty simple. Nice prize to the winner a set of PK-451 Wide Eyed Kids 1 1/8"stamps. Here is my entry and I used a wobble on that little chickie.

Just entered this card into a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2

Hope you like her!  Janet

Another card for a challenge

I just finished this card for the Throwback Tursday Challenge at  Emma's My creative Times. We were to use the Walk In My Garden cricut cartridge and to be sure to include a flower in whatever project we chose to make. One of my favorite flowers is the Hydrengea and there was a cut for one on that cartrige. I was going to make a shape card using this cut and my gypsy. This proved way more challenging then I was ready for so I went for the normal card. The card is not quite what I envisioned and I'm not totally happy with it but I did finish it.
Would love some feed back on how to improve on this.
Thanks for stopping by and any input you have.   Janet

Another Birthday card and Challenge entry

Good morning, I just completed a BD card for my awesome daughter. It's hard to believe she is about to turn 36,  My idea started to form after visiting My Creative Times blog and read her Throwback Thursday challenge (  Here are the specifics to this challenge:

*** Link your project up to Mr. Linky, then leave a comment!
*** Deadline for this challenge will be on Wed, February 16th!
***Use either "Just Because" OR "Wild Card" cartridge for this challenge*** Create a Card of your choice MUST include a "Stamped Sentiment"!
***IF you do NOT have any of these cartridges, feel free to use any OLDER cart just make sure you have a "Stamped Sentiment" on it!!;)
 The card base is from the Wild Cards cartridge and the cut out is from th Lite cartridge Celebrate With Flourish :.
Her fav color is green and she loves chocolate covered strawberries. I actually created this whole thing on my Gypsy a first for me. The card measures 4.5 inches and the sentiment is from Pink by Design "Scripted Year"
