Hey Everyone! I hope that you've all had a great weekend so far ... I'm sad to say that it's Sunday afternoon, but I got some creative time in with my crafty lady friends yesterday. Anne was nice enough to host us at her lovely home and I think we all got a ton done! Check Anne's debut appearance out HERE as she guest designs at Sue-Ann's Crafts!
So without anymore gabbing, here are some of the projects that I completed this weekend! I was a bit on a roll with the cards, here's what I came up with!
The close up of the Monkey card wouldn't post, but the sentiment says bananas 4 you! I got the great banana paper from MaryAnn as she had a whole stack to do with monkeys!
Next were the skunks ... I struggled a little bit here and I think my issue was the color that I chose to use as the shaddow (blue) I think if I had done a yellow or even pink I would have been more creative with the color options and embellishments, but we learn!

I thought the poodles were too cute! Obviously more of a "girl" card, but I mixed it up a bit by changing the background color of the card on the middle verison. I also changed the layout of the stamp and just put a scrap piece of paper where I didn't want the stamp to hit the card (see blue card).
I didn't realize at the time but the black dotted paper was actually ahdesive backed which made putting all the extra layeres on quick and easy, I might do that on purpose next time!
Finally the dinos! These were so much fun to make. I changed up the embellishments and color choices just a bit but kept the same dinosaur.
I used my Creative Memories corner punch to give these cards a bit of something different from the others which all had regular square corners.
I used my Gypsy for all of these and saved the animals for future use. All of the critters were from the fabulous Create a Critter cartridge. The Gypsy made it easy to make the animals in "bulk" so that multiple cards could be made with ease. None of the cards have messages inside as I wanted to be able to start "stock piling" cards to have for any occasion, plus once they're made it'll only take a minute to stamp or write in a sentiment to fit the occasion that you're looking for!
Thanks for stopping by Crafting with Meg! I'm back to the craft room to see what else I can whip up for you before the weekend ends!
