I have 3 projects to share with you this month.

The first project uses the Twinkle Toes Lite Cartridge.
All paper ws from my scrap pile.
The cute dancing poodle was cut at 4"
and the sentiment was cut at 2".
I used the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls
folder on her fur, and
Spots & Dots on the background.
The ribbon is from My Craft Spot.

My next card was made with the
Cricut Craft Room Exclusive Cartridge
Seasonal Characters.
In case you did not know, I do not use CCR
but once you purchase CCR carts, once you update
your gypsy, they will be loaded to you gypsy to
design and cut with!!
I cut this cute little santa at 4".
I am making 17 of these cards for a swap.
I used a couple of cuttlebug folders
to emboss his beard and the green paper.

My last project this month is my favorite!
If you saw my lion card on Wednesday,
this is the matching banner I made!!
This was for one of the girls at
work.  We had her baby shower on
Wednesday.  She loved it!!
This was made with Pretty Pennants,
Create a Critter & All Mixed Up.

The banner pieces were cut at 3.20"
from Pretty Pennants.
The letters were cut at 2.66" real dial size
from All Mixed Up.
The animals were cut at 2.5".
Here are some close ups.

I used the Peachy Keen
Happy Go Lucky Dog Faces
stamp for his face

I used Peachy Keen
Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed
for his face.
I also used a Sizzix embossing folder
for the prices with the letters on them.

I used Peachy Keen
Everyday Character Face Parts
for her eyes.
I used baby blue tulle to string the banner.

I am entering this banner in the following challenges:
1.) Pause Dream Enjoy ~Challenge #31-Cupcakes or Baby Theme

Kathy, I love how you used embossing on all your projects. It really adds dimension, something a little extra to your projects. After this Im more inspired to use my cuttlebug, I always forget too.
