My Sheri Crafts Ch. 82 - MSC Turns Two!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! We have an exciting challenge for you at My Sheri Crafts. We are celebrating a birthday! Yes! My Sheri Crafts Turns 2! Happy Birthday! Time for fun and celebrating! Let's do fun birthday projects for toddlers or kids under 5. We want to see bright colors and fun projects--no elegant cards.  Sheri created a cute birthday button for the party! We would love for you to share it on your blog!
When I was thinking of what to do for this challenge, my thoughts turned to the fun Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge! This cartridge has a card feature with some great card shapes. I have not used this cartridge very often and I enjoyed playing with it for this card.

Using the Cricut Craft Room and the card feature on page 36, the card is cut at 5.25" from red cardstock. The word Birthday is part of the cut image. Finished size when folded is 5 1/2" width x 5 1/4" height. Card feature on shift gives the layer with the word bash. The polka dot paper is from a birthday kit. I layered a scrap of green glitter paper under the word opening.

The little monkey is the main image on page 36 and is cut at 2.875" x 2.75". He seems to be peeping from under the blindfold! Such  a cute cut! For a festive look, I decided to add a little hat. The hat is found on page 21 and is cut at 1 1/2". To add more fun to the monkey, it is attached to an Action Wobble.
Other supplies include inking and a white Gelly Roll pen used on the letters.

Now it is your turn to play along with us at My Sheri Crafts. Stop by the blog and see all the fun and festive projects that have been created by the talented design team and our guest designer Jessica at Cricut after Dark. We appreciate your comments and encourage you to become a follower if you are not already.  Remember several Ooh la la awards are given and one person will be chosen to be the next guest designer!

Hope you enjoy my fun and bright card! Happy Birthday My Sheri Crafts!

Music Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

This fun card is made for a few challenges requiring a music theme. It is inspired by the song "Spring Fever" by Elvis. The first few lines starts with "A little bird, he told me so. He said come on, get on the go. Open your eyes, the sky is full of butterflies."
I got busy with the Cricut and some fun cuts.
Card is 5"x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned paper is The Paper Studio Girls Live To Rock. Solid papers are from my stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
April Showers - Spring fever is cut 1.25". Butterflies are .375"
Groovy Times - I have not played with this cartridge in awhile but when I saw the dance couple, my thoughts turned to maybe a guy with a guitar. The dance couple is on page 24.  I used hide contour in Cricut Craft Room to eliminate the girl. The guy is cut 4".
Also on page 24, the silhouette feature on shift was cut for the white mat at 4.125".
Page 53 - Guitar is cut using Layer 1 and Layer 2 at 2".

Cuttlebug:  Allergo Folder is used on the white mat.
Other supplies: Inking and pop-dots for the guy and guitar.

Die Cuttin' Divas - Ch. 57 Music
Cooking With Cricut - Ch. 78 Spring Song Inspired Challenge

Hope you enjoy this Spring song inspired card! I used several music features while trying to keep the Spring theme with some Spring colors. I know it is a bit different but it was fun to make!
