"Where did the kitties come from?"

I had such a great response from people on the BB I frequent about these cards. But the one recurring question was "where did the kitties come from?" So to answer the questions, yes, it was done on my Cricut but not from a cartridge.

If you've read any of my previous posts you know what a fan I am of SCAL2. It's an awesome program that let's you cut out just about anything from your computer. On the left side of this blog is a list of websites I go to very often to get SCAL files. Some are free, some have a small fee.

The kitties are from a SCAL file I purchased at MyScrapChick. So darn cute. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to have them.

And just a side note - these cards are up for grabs at my ArtFire store. You can get there by clicking on the ArtFire icon on the top left of this page.

Another PageMap Contest

I couldn't resist another challenge by PageMaps. This time the prize is a Cricut! So cool!

I also learned a new technique in doing this layout. Covering chipboard with paper is not so easy. So instead, I embossed them. It worked great!

Page Maps card contest

I love contests! Actually, I love winning contests. I love the free stuff you get when you win a contest. And this contest is for some very cute paper from Sassafras called Nerdy Bird. So here's my entry for the Nerdy Bird Page Maps challenge.

The very cute candles are from MyScrapChick. The random stamping was done using the It's Your Day and Let's Celebrate (I think that's the name) stamp sets from Close To My Heart. And of course the loop punch is from Martha Stewart.

The Small Details - It's hard to tell in the pictures but I random stamped the words Celebrate the Everyday and Celebrate the Occasion on the blue background and then clear embossed it. Also, I cut the flames out in a lighter color card stock, and then inked the edges with Tulip ink. I love how they turned out!

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment. It would be nice to know if someone is actually reading this :)
