Weekly Challenge # 17 - Thursday

Challenge:   Children's Birthday

Dates:  April 30, 2013 to May 6, 2013

Hello All You Crafty People!
This is Teresa from CreateEnjoyShare  and it is my day to share a creation with you!
Our theme this week is "Children's Birthday" and it could not have come at a better time!  My sweet granddaughter Aubrey will turn 5 years old in early May and I wanted to create a couple of cards just for her.

 Yes, I created two cards to share!
Here is the first one!
My Granddaughters love  the LaLaLoopsey dolls and t.v. show and during a recent visit, I got to play dolls with them!  I knew she would love having a card with a LaLaLoopsey on it!
Thankfully, someone from one of the Silhouette groups I belong to shared this file with me.
It is a print and cut, meaning you print the picture on the computer then take it to your Cameo for cutting around it.
I added a "loopy" frame and also a background layer that I embossed.
LaLaLoopsey is elevated with foam squares for some dimension.
My original plan was to put her on an Action Wobble so she could
"dance" - but she was not wide enough to accommodate a wobble behind her!  
I have more photos on my blog to show more details of this card so please be sure to check them out!
Now allow me to share "Card Number Two" for Aubrey!
During our recent visit, we took a fun trip to the Children's Museum. My granddaughter was enjoying playing with a toy owl while we were there - and I told her maybe Grandma could get her one of her own sometime.
I could not find the EXACT owl but I did manage to purchase and send one and I wanted a card to represent that owl.
Again, the owl and the branch were cut using my Silhouette with two separate files from their store. This time the owl was large enough to put it on a Action Wobble, so he teeters back and forth on the branch.
I inked all the edges and folded the leaves to give them some shape and dimension.
"For Aubrey" was also done on the Silhouette using a gel pen! 
Again, please head over to my blog for more details and photos!
