For my first project today, I used  A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge

The base of my card is Recollections Kraft card stock cut 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 to form an A2 sized card.  My blue layer is 5 1/4 X 4.  My brown (sand) is 1 1/2 and I used a Fiskars paper tear edger to make my sand line.  My image was cut at 3 inches.  My sentiment is from K Andrew's Sweet July stamp set and was stamped in SU Old Olive on some SU Whisper White card stock.  My ribbon is from Wal-Mart.

Now for a closer look at my main image: 

For my second project today, I used Give A Hoot Cricut Cartridge.  

My card is an A2 sized card.  My pink base is ColorBok from Wal-Mart.  My green layer is from DCWV So So Sweet stack.  My image is cut at 3 inches first in green then in pink.  I inked around the edges with some pink MS ink.  I added some Flamingo Liquid Pearls to the butterfly and to make the butterfly trail.  I added some pink/white twin from the Twinery.  My sentiment is from K Andrew's Positive Thoughts stamp set.  

A closer look at my butterfly:

For my third and final project today, I used Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge.  

This card is 9 1/4 X 4 inches.  It will fit in a #10 envelope.  My card base is from Recollections.  My adorable background paper is from Provo Craft Celebration stack which came from Erica's Craft Room Store!  My alligator was cut at 2 1/2 inches.  All of the paper used on my gator is from my ever growing scrap box.  I added some googly eyes rather than using the cut eyes.  For my nose, I used a black sharpie marker.  My sweet sentiment is from K Andrew "Positive Thoughts" stamped in CTMH Lagoon ink.  My ribbon is from Wal-Mart. 

And now a closer look of that adorable gator: 

I hope you enjoyed my projects today!
