Purple Dino Valentine

Got all of my groceries this morning and filled up my car. Salt and shovels ready and a list of activities for the kids ready. The big snow is coming tonight and I think I'm prepared for a week of being shut in instead of one day. I was recalling when we were off of school in '79 for over a week because there was so much snow. I think I need to find those pics and post with whatever the kids do in the snow tomorrow. 
Here is my entry for three challenges. Cricut Cardz required a Valentine's Day card for a child, Crop Stop wanted us to emboss with folders or stylus in at least two different patterns, and Paper Playtime was an anything goes challenge. I knew I wanted to do a card for my son to put in his lunch box but, when I saw Crop Stops challenge I knew I had to do the T-rex from Create A Critter (just can't get away from this cart). I was able to use folders that I haven't used yet. I purchased them because I knew they would be great patterns for animals. The background you'll recognize as Traffic Jam. I used Tiny Mosaic and Tiny Bubbles on the dino. I couldn't find the exact sentiment I wanted to I used two stamps from Scrappy Moms, the word I wanted from each and stamped onto cs. It took a lot of restraint not to "bling" it up with Stickles or ribbon. My son wouldn't be too happy about that.


  1. Very cute. I like the way the embossing on the dinosaur looks like scales.
