DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #233-Baby

Good morning.  It s time for  a new challenge over at DL.ART- I am so excited the theme is "Baby".  Of course you can always substitute a Thank You card.  A lot of my friends are becoming grandparents.  I made this card for my friends-her son and his wife are expecting a boy.  Have you checked out all of the fun buttons and Crinkle ribbon in the DL.ART store ?  I love the buttons and the Baby Flair buttons are perfect for this challenge.  The Baby Bundle has Baby Pink, Baby Blue and Sweet dreams. I also used Yellow and White Basic Twine.   Diana generously gives my readers a 10% discount-just use the code KA345 at check out.
I began by cutting the overalls on my cricut.  I then covered a 5X7 card base with yellow Embellish card stock and some We R Memory Makers polka dot paper  I added a strip of Sweet Dreams crinkle ribbon.  Then I made a rosette wth Baby Blue Crinkle Ribbon.  I added a tassle of Yellow and White Basic Twine.  Then I added The "boy" button from Baby Flair Buttons.

Now it is your turn to create something for this challenge.  I can't wait to see you projects.  Be sure to stop by DL.ART to see what Diana and my DT sisters made.

My Brother in Law, Norm, is a fabulous gardener.  I made this card for his birthday.  I am also entering this into the Art Impressions Challenge 236- Masculine Cards.  All of the stamps and the sentiment are from the His and Hers Gardeners set.  I began by stamping the guy, then I covered him with a Post It mask.  Then I stamped the lady behind him.  The images were water colored with Marvy Markers.  I fussy cut all of the images.  The inspiration for the step style card came from AI DT member Renee.  The designer papers are Bella Blvd-Barnyard

Every Saturday for the past 25 years I have been meeting a group of women for coffee.  We have been through a lot of sad and happy times together.  My friend Elaine and her husband John are celebrating 50 years of marriage.  Her children threw a fantastic party.  I made this special card for them.
I began by embossing some AG metallic gold card stock.  Then I added a band of DL.ART Whipped Cream crinkle ribbon from the Creamy Dreamy Bundle .  This bundle is perfect for weddings and anniversarys.  I cut 2 medallions using an Anna Griffin Cricut cartridge.  I popped them up with foam tape.  Then I added the 50th cut.  
Now it is your turn to create something for the DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge.  I can't wait to see your Anniversary or Thank You projects.    Head over to The DL.ART blog for inspiration- Diana and my DT sisters have some awesome projects.

This card is for a friend whose daughter just graduated high school.  She is an amazing gymnast who received a scholarship to Oregon State.  Their mascot is a Beaver.  I created the design in Cricut Design Space.  Legs were added to the log to make it look like a balance beam.
