Cute as a buggy

You might be wondering why I have "Cute as a buggy" as my title? That's because I had used my cuttlebug for the first time since hubby gave it to me for my birthday and that was a while back. It's been sitting in a corner and today, I've decided it has to come out!!!

I've made 2 cards today and please bear with me if this post is a tad bit too long. The first card is for my nephew who's turning five this Saturday and he loves BOATS, so I figured this would work out well. I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday:

MS cardstock paper, K & Company chipboard, Prisma pearls & crystals, boat freebie image from Digi Darla, Joyeux Anniversaire sentiment from Create with TLC, prismacolor pencils, D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, scallop punch

The 2nd card is for my girlfriend who loves bright flowers and is always a cheerful person.

MS cardstock paper, paper from stash, Mary, Mary freebie image from Designed to Delight, flower image from Floppy Latte Designs, Friends sentiment from Meljen's Designs and Wishing you a tweet day sentiment from Doodle Pantry, Floral fantasy embossing folder.

I'm entering them in the following:

1st card:
DYSU #23 - birthday
Digi Darla challenge - something blue
Charisma Cardz- how old
Digi Doodle -  no patterned paper
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Boy, oh boy
Incy, Wincy Designs  98- Fathers Day/ Masculine
Paper Take Weekly - Dads & Lads
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Man card
Wags n Whiskers 56 -  One for the boys
Stamp Challenge - Something Punched
2nd card:
D2D Challenge - Cute as a buggy
Meljen's # 62 - Pink & pearls
Floppy Latte Design - Funky Flower Contest

Anything goes - Here comes summer

and entering both in:
