Sew Glad We're Friends and some Cricut Cards

This is my last week as Guest DT on Etsy Inspired.  It has been fun, but of course I will continue to play along!  This week our inspiration comes from Ponder and Stitch, the cutest little cuff bracelets and pouches.  I chose this cute little bracelet as my inspiration, wouldn't it be great for the sewer in your life.

The sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Characters by Heather Ellis, another Etsy shop.  What cute little images!  So sweet and innocent.  I chose this one called Pure Innocence.  I paired it up with a sentiment from Inktegrity, another line of fabulous digital images.  The pattern paper is Cosmo Cricket Material Girl. Another card for the Moxie Fab paper piecing challenge.
I hope you play along with us at Etsy Inspired!


Now the sketch from Card Positioning Systems:


The Color Challenge from Color Dare:
The Color Challenge from Stamping 411:

Now for my card I incorporated a couple more challenges: Bitten By the Bug2 - Sweet Treats cake 2; Cupcake Craft Challenge - food and drink, Stamping Royalty - glitter.  I used my new My Mind's Eye paper pack.  This is not my normal style (ie all the bling) but went out of my box so it fits the Raise the Bar challenge- April Fool - it is a little busy for what I usually do.


 Again I was inspired by all the writing.

Now I wanted to make a card for the CAS challenge on SCS - it is New York themed.  I definitely got the New York theme, just not sure if it is CAS or not!  I used a few Cricut Cartridges for this and the center circle is actually a coaster I got in a pack at Michael's for $1.50!  I think this also fits the Cricutters Anonymous challenge - a girly card - fits doesn't it?

Well, goodness! You've been busy! LOVE that first card, and the sewer in me is inspired by the cuff! So cute. Your other cards are great too, Laurel, don't get me wrong, but my eye keeps going back to that first sweet one and the inspiration picture.

Have a great weekend!

Laurel this lineup is amazing! First off, EEK that you've used one of my sentiments from my Inktegrity line! ;) That in itself made me smile. :D I love the bling on the card you've entered into the challenge. It may not be your usual style but you had me fooled! Wonderful gallery today, all so well done. Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
