Decky's Card for the Prairie Fairie

My middle son likes creating cards. Some of the things he would like to do are quite difficult, so he enlists the help of an adult (usually me but sometimes the grandmas) This time he wanted to make a card about his new puppy Percy. He colored his image to match Percy. He did a pretty good job considering he is 6. He liked the polka dot punch for his border and the puppy paws. NO FLOWERS, he said, so no flowers. He did want to make corner embellishments with the Cuttlebug. I think that the boys would put all my paper through the CB. Last but not least he wanted the card to say good dog but he can't spell. Decky is entering this in the Prairie Fairie Fun Friday also entering this in the Kona Kid Krafter's any thing goes challenge.

Summer Memories

I made this card last night. I couldn't sleep. I had a wicked headache and some little critters had invaded my bed. I am going to enter it in the Paper Romance Card Challenge to add a metal embellishment, Prairie Fairy Fun Friday Challenge using Punches, Pixie Dust and Wild Flower Wednesday - Polka Dots and the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge of Blue and Cream. On my card, I used the brushed metal corners, polka dotted blue and cream ribbon, punched flowers and border. The image is from the Prairie Fairie. It reminded me of picture of me and my brother. I wanted the card to have a vintage feel. The cream colored paper has a sparkly sheen to it that doesn't translate that well in the photo. Hope you enjoy my creation

I finally did it. I met a deadline for a card. I really like the monochromatic look of this card. I envy you ladies who can create cards on a whim. I feel like this one little card took more planning then my own wedding. That is why I am entering it in a few challenges. The first Simon Says Challenge: Simon Says...SING IT BABY!!!!
My song comes from the movie Cinderella (the Disney one - can I even say that??) The song A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes. I am also entering this card in the Creative Inspirations  challenge #72 recipe of 5 flowers, 3 papers, one ribbon, Polly Craft Monday Challenge for their Princess Card, and Prairie Fairy's Circle Frame Challenge.

A dream is a wish your heart makes...
