Some cards I made today

I hope I'm not breaking any rules, but I don't want to stay up all night typing a whole bunch of posts. I'm just going to stick them all here. Let me know in a comment if I broke any rules so I can fix it. Thanks.

My daughters wanted to make a card for their cousin (her birthday was today). So they entered them into the Simon Says kids challenge. Here is Leah's card (she's 5 - almost 6):

Here is Susanna's card (she's 3):
And I made this card for these challenges: Sweet Sketch Wednesday, ColourQ and Simon Says (animal antics).
Here's the inside:

Materials used:
Paper: Let's Get Together; White Daisy & Buttercup cardstock
Stamps: Life is Tweet
Inks: Garden Green, Cranberry
Markers: Buttercup
Embellishments: Holiday Buttons, Paradise Paper Flowers, Holiday Brads, White Daisy Embroidery Floss

Here's another card I made for these challenges: Freshly Made Sketches, Color Throwdown, and Word Art Wednesday. This is an anniversary card for my sister-in-law.

This card didn't exactly turn out how I envisioned it. I think I put the butterflies too far apart or made them too big or something. Oh well, maybe next time.

Materials used:
Paper: White Daisy, Pear, Goldrush, Heavenly Blue, and Petal cardstock; Flirty B&T
Stamps: Word Art from WordArtWednesday (not CTMH)
Cricut: Art Philosophy Cartridge
Other: Bitty Sparkles, white ribbon (not CTMH)
