Mo Mo's Tues. Challenge...A Girly Affair

This is my submission for MoMo's Challenge.  I used the owl from the Create a Critter cart. I also used some other precious cuts from the same cartridge such as the matching branch and the moon and sentiment from pg. 71 of the handbook. I used turquoise ink to dob around the edges of the moon. I used a heart punch from the Paper Studio, and the flowers were punched with my Stampin' Up Big Shot Die, Baskets and Blooms. I used a 16x20 canvas and decoupaged it using Modge Podge. When using Modge Podge, the more the better! I usually cover the area where I am going to place my paper, cover the back of the paper, then once placed, paint over the paper. You also need to add each layer separate and allow to somewhat dry in between layers.  I actually had to use my 12 x 24 Cricut mat for the first time...very exciting!  I think it turned out sweet and it was fun to make.

Throwback Thursday Challenge 58 with Emma

Inspired by the shutter card that Dorcus made at 4 Crafty Angels and my sweet friend who just had a baby, I created this card.  My friend's little girl seems to have her days and nights mixed up.  Not to mention, she also has a 2 year old little guy who wakes her up at 7am.
Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge was to use the cartridge "New Arrival" or any other older cartridge.  Well, I do not have the "New Arrival" cart, but I tried to keep with the feeling of the "New Arrival" Cartridge.
The baby was cut from "Everyday Paperdolls", The carriage, moon, frame, and clouds (I did use my Gypsy to combine 2 clouds for the front) all came from "Potpourri".  With the exception of the Sweet Dreams  the words are from "Alphalicious."  I can't wait to mail this off to my friend!
