A Circle and a TILT!!!!

A bizarre title, right?!!!.. Well you'll see why in just a sec.

I've been meaning to post these cards for you to look at for a month now and thought I'd best do it.

The first one, being the Circle was a card I made for my gorgeous friend for her birthday:-

I used an old Sweet Sunday Sketch layout, but I can't remember which one!!.. I'll check and let you know!! And a FAVE colour combo of Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. I also used the FABULOUS Build a Cupcake set and the accompanying Build A Cupcake punch!!

The second card was one I made for my little nephew Carter for his 2nd Birthday and this one is TILT!!!


Now!!.. you all know my aversion to anything crooked or tilted, so I was quite suprised with myself and if the truth be told I'm still in a little shock, when I came up with a card for him with a TILTED panel!!!.. I can't take all the credit for this one, as I saw an amazing creation by the very talented Renee and quite blatantly CASED it. (It's got a TILT!!! I had to!!! :D )

I hope you like my mid/end of week post. I'll be back on Sunday with another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Such cute cards, I am amazed that actually made a tilt card without someone holding you down and with one arm tied behind your back LOL. I can see why you CASED it, it is a fab card& I think I'l add it to my Kids cards I like collection. The cupcake card is very you & you've done a fab job.

Ok, first off - I am GLAD I kept scrolling down because I was in for even MORE Krafty goodness! And second off - TILTED PANEL? The card is adorable, but...well, you know me! ;-) Vicki is crazy ^. Tilted panels. hmph. But I do love the rest of it in all it's adorableness, even though I want to straighten it all out! LOL.
