So here’s the scoop for Flashback Friday Challenge Blog…**first card you have posted with a window cut into the front of the card** I found this in my Splitcoast Stampers Gallery, I made it for Christmas 2007. yipes, where does the time go! I know I got the idea from someone online but I sure don’t remember where now! If it was you, THANKS! I loved the inspiration! This is not the first card I ever made with a window cut in the front… I’ve been stamping since April of 1994, so it’s impossible to remember that first one! For me that is!!! lol
HERE is my card in my SCS gallery. Wish I had a picture of the inside but I can’t find one. figures.
What a fun challenge blog… I love looking back… have a nice day and see you tomorrow!
I’ve had this card started for a couple weeks…finally got it almost finished earlier in the week but today was “the day” to get it on the brown! lol I know, I use a lot of “brown”! I like it! An adorable image by Amy Young for CC Designs… the cutest Baby Trick or Treater. I hope you can see the detail in this awesome tree die cut too… I’ll post a close up. Awesome woodgrain (brown) lol! The grass and the ABC frame are cut on my old original Cricut. I love the Graphically Speaking cartridge… lots of fun stuff that I have yet to cut! Martha Stewart’s fence border punch. The pattern paper is by Bo Bunny and the teeny apples are a Fiskars hand held apple punch.
The close up…
I used the same color combos I always use… boring… hehe Hair – E50, YR31, 23,24, Dress – R24, 27, 29, 59, Skin – E000, 00, 01, itty bitty bit of E21 and I can’t remember what I used on her cheeks this time. I figure I did good to remember this much! lol

The Challenge: Do you think Julie is going to have a baby boy or baby girl? Well, she already has boys, so I picked “a girl”! So, the gals in the area swap group were to make her an atc according to what we decided.
Here’s my girl ATC. She really is ATC size, 2.5 in. x 3.5 in. Six cuts on the cricut to get her nice and chipboard thick…the cartridge is Stretch Your Imagination. She’s kinda goofy looking cute! lol
Grandson number 2 had his 7th birthday April 1st…yep, he’s a handsome redhead!
Click to Enlarge, click on the picture again and it gets even larger!
The grandchildren and I have so much fun creating with the Cricut Paper Doll cartridge, that I had to make one for Lane for his birthday card. I added lots of little details…chalked and inked everything, crumpled the card-stock for the band on his hat…stamped teeny paisley on the scarf…
I wanted his chaps to look like leather so I used a Magenta crackle stamp on them….Then to make the rope look a little like twine/rope, I took my xacto knife and scratched it up….a very fun cowboy to make….I’ve always loved paper piecing!!! Hope he makes you smile too!
My sister Connie and her DH were here Sat. afternoon through Sun. morning…long enough to spend time w/our family and create w/the Paper doll cartridge for the Cricut. The next layout Connie is planning to create is one of her grandsons in leprechaun garb….so this little green guy is going on a scrapbook page soon!
So fun to create these little paper dolls! All the little extra touches w/the paper piercer, chalks and inking really make for a realistic looking character…He is a 3 in. doll…
