So Happy For You

Aren't they cute!!! This digi is by DZ Doodles and is a freebie until the end of their challenge (Wednesday). DZ Doodles also provided a sketch so again, I used my accordian fold tag thingy and used it as a card and the result is my take on their sketch. I made a pocket in the front so the card w/the sentiment can be pulled out and personalized.

Sweet Baby

This little darlin' digi is by Meljen's Design. In my stockpile of stuff, I found this tag shaped accordian fold thingy that I tried to do something with but failed miserably. So, I ripped it apart and decided to make individual cards - worked like a charm!
This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Meljen's Design #48 "U R Such an Animal"
Lollipop Crafts Challenge #29 - "Critters"

Down to my Bones

This groovy image, sentiment and digi paper is by Tiddlyinks. This is my entry for their current challenge "Color Me".
