Happy Birthday Dylan!

It has been some time since I have posted. It seemed as if my creativity decided to take a vacation of some sorts. It seemed to coincide with my re-arranging of my crafting space. Ever since I moved things around, I have had a tough time being creative. With my nephew's birthday party approaching, I finally was able to create!

I made these cards for Dylan's 7th from me and one for my mom to give him.

At the young age of 6, Dylan has become quite the photographer, and has his photos chosen for a local School district creativity contest! One photo was of a lion and with that in mind, I created this card for Dylan.

I used the lion from Cricut Cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls, I used the Gypsy to weld the lion to a rectangle and create a shaped card. Color accents were added using Copic Markers.

This next card was also created using the Gypsy. Martian and space ship were cut using Everyday Paper dolls, planet was hand cut and inked. Inside of card reads "Hope your birthday is out of this world!"

I'm hoping these cards and the photo book (that I'll post tomorrow) has helped to get my creativity back on track. I'm hoping I won't have to put my workspace back to where it was and my old creative juices will begin to flow once again!

Thanks for stopping by....have a great Sunday!

Koala-t hugs,

Cathy T
