Cards for the men in your life

This weeks challenge over on the UK Crafters thread on the Cricut MB was to make a card for men/boys and include a button or buttons. My first card is one that I made in October last year for the Addicted to Cardmaking swop on the Cricut MB. I thought I would show it as I did not put it on my blog at the time.
My second card, which is for the challenge, was a difficult one for me as I am not known for using dark colours. However, I found these paper, which were a freebie from CraftsBeautiful, when I was sorting out my craft cupboard and thought they would suit this card. I used a stamped image of Edwin that a friend gave to me and coloured him with a mix of pencils and Whispers Brush markers. Then I added glossy accents to the chair buttons and the handmade button. In the end I enjoyed making this card and am now going to make another one with the leftover paper.
The cut file for the chair is available from Ruth is an amazing designer, stop by her blog and see what she creates and please don't forget to leave her a comment.

Wedding Card for Challenge

Here is my wedding card for this weeks challenge on the Cricut MB for the UK Crafters group.
The card is from a cut file from and is part of her Lattice card file set. I love this design and use it often, thanks Linda. The paper is from a set that I bought from Create and Craft some time ago. I printed out the hands and flowers on the computer, they are from the House of Lime and are dingbats. Added some stickles to the flowers and after colouring the leaves I added glossy accents. All I need now is for someone to invite me to their wedding!

Cute Bear

On the Cricut MB Design Studio recently Gary and his wife, aka CrowsnestScrappers, shared a fabulous cut file for this cute fuzzy bear. Not only did Gary design the bear but his wife did the artwork. Thank you both for all your hard work, I made this card for you as a thankyou.
If anyone gets this file they will see how much work they put into making it. I used some paper from the Crafters Companion Papercrafts Set 2 for the flowers and title. I love this little bear, he is so sweet.
