MCS #94, PP #7 and CASology

Yay!  The sun just came out.  This has been quite a day, weather wise.  There was a little snow, then a blizzard and now the sun is shining.  Like they always say in Michigan (and a number of other states I've heard), if you don't like the weather, wait a minute. We've had some flooding in the area, too, with streets and schools closed in a nearby town.

I have two cards to post today to make sure I beat the challenge deadline.  I hope the challengers don't mind me combining them both  in one post, but the positive side is more people get to see my work. :)

(My gadget on the side is in the way of my post so I moved it down.)





First up is My Craft Spot #94 - Cute Critters and Paper Playtime #7- use a pun.  I made this card for a young girl from our church who has been hospitalized for a while and has now be diagnosed with Lupus.


The dog is cut from Doodlecharms.  The sentiment is from the computer and cut with my new frame cuts from Hero Arts.  

My second card is for CASology.


I knew I didn't want to do the obvious with this cue so I went in an entirely different direction but one that still holds true to travel..


The cut is from A Child's Year, with the sentiment printed on the computer.  I inked the edges of the top layer, cut 1/2 inch smaller than the base card, and popped it up on foam tape.  You can go anywhere you want  through books

Since I've been typing this post, it has snowed again and the sun is now shining.  Talk about schizophrenic.  

Thanks for stopping by to see my cards.  Comment if you please, and have a wonderful day.
