Happy Birthday Card

Good Morning to all my friends and family in blogging land!
Today I am playing paying along with the fun sketch challenge from last week and this week challenge to use pastel colours over at Die Cuttin Diva's.
If you know anything about me you know I love using a sketch.

 Here is my take on the sketch which I made while sitting in the shade yesterday
with all these pretty pastels of peaches, pinks and blue.

You have to love this Arizona weather, it is going to be a very sad day when we have to pack up at the end of the month and head back home. I was just talking to my daughter this morning and she said they had snow once again last night. I hope it is all gone by the time we get back. The only thing good about going back is my friends and family....I really do miss them a lot!
This card is called a center step card which can be found over at Split Coast Stampers.
The bird and branch were cut from Cricuts cartridge Serenade, this is one cartridge I have never used even though it was bought when it first came out. LOL!
The inside sentiment is by Hambo Stamps.
Challenges entered:
DL Art April Linky Party.
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge
So thats it for another day time to get outside and enjoy the weather well I can. Thanks for stopping bye and have a great wee.

May Your Day Bloom With Happiness!

Hello to all my crafty friends and family. Just to let you know we are still here in Arizona enjoying the beautiful weather and watching all the cactus come into bloom. I am stating to get a bit homesick, but there is still a lot of snow, dirt and snow mold all over in Edmonton, so I guess it will be at least another month before we head home
So in the mean time I decided to make a card to join in some of the fun challenges going on. 
This week Fantabulous Cricut has a sketch challenge and  this is my take of it.
Here is a picture of the sketch which can be found over at Fantabuous Cricut Blog.

One of my favorite cards to make is a easel card I just love the way each one turns out so different and they are so easy to make. I all so love that Craftin Desert Diva's blog and D.L. Art Blog are both having a anything goes linky party! So I will be able to join in two more challenges all so ! Woo! Hoo!
This is one of my favorite butterflies cuts that Cricut has, it is from Pictureque Cricut cartridge, cut at 1.5 inches. I love all the different layers this cut has to offer.
For the inside of the card I used Cricuts Paisley for the small butterfly, cut at .50 and Storybook cartridge for the Thank you cut at 1 inch.
Next cartridge used was Ellegant Edges which worked out perfect to add this fun sentiment from My Craft Spots Inside and Out #1, and yes you guessed it they have a Thank you challenge going on right now. So here you have it, one card that I can enter in a few challenge. Plus I needed a thank you card for the lady that has been kind enough to let us rent this beautiful place for the last three months. So thank you Dawn! I am sure we will be back again next year.
Thanks for stopping bye and have a super fun week!
