Hi!! To this week I made a step card. I used the beautiful Mz Emolie - Flapper,  provided by our sponsor,

 I used a rosette, flowers, a butterfly and many crystals. 

Cazzy

First I must apologise for the post going out late, this is entirely my fault - I accidentally left the post open while I worked on my late card. I must also apologise to our Guest Designers - got totally muddled adding their makes and attributed Geesje's card to Jennifer and missed Jennifer's out completely - so sorry ladies!
I love Ike's cats as you know, and I used Cushion Kitty and gave her a crown, so she could be queen for a day (or king for a day) using Coronet. I die cut my rosette. I added Liquid Pearls and Stickles glitter glue to the coronet, and image is coloured with ProMarkers.

For my second project, I choose "Shirt and tie" trying to make some Father´s Day cards in advance; and "Shirt and Tie Shaped Card" cutting file provided by our sponsor, was just perfect for that. Of course my "Gentlemen Owls" pattern paper couldn´t be any better.


Hope you are enjoying this challenge as I'm. This week I would like to share this cute card for a Little Baby Boy using the Shirt and Tie Shaped Card from our amazing sponsor The Cutting Cafe.

I finally this is my shirt versión.

I used the Tie Shaped Card and I used the sentiment for A great Dad. 

Cazzy
Shirts again - I love making these shirt cards! This time one is very bright, both are for Dad's birthdays. I added faux stitching and got a little creative with the pocket handkerchief on the striped one.

I also tried a shoe, but I don't think I did it well - it could be better, note to self: next time read the guide first!
I'm sneaking in another shirt, one I had nearly made then misplaced!
