I'm Up for a Challenge!

Well, I am!  I just haven't had time to post, and so here are 3 challenge cards for the past 3 days of 365 Cards:

Day 7 - Feeling Fierce.  In my mind, fierce is not fashion... but then I'm old and Tyra Banks annoys me.  To me the word 'fierce' evokes wild and fun, which is why I was inspired to make a kids birthday critter card.

Incredibly simple... this was some DCWV design paper on which I popped some Doodlebug Design stickers.  I made up my own sentiment and glued it under my big ol' gorilla.

Inside the card is a wee fun surprise.  These stickers were just too cute, so I popped one inside, too.

Day 8 - Arch Card.  I've never made a card with this shape before, but to me 'arch' brings to mind gothic architecture, stained glass windows and McDonald's fries.  I both love and hate McDonald's fries, but that's neither here nor there.  Here's my arch card:

This arch with vines was cut on my Silhouette, and the flowers were punched and placed randomly around the card (and over the nesties tag)  Ruby red Stickles add a bit o' glitz.  Sentiment by Fiskars.

Day 9 - Do that Decade - the '90s.  I'd also like to submit this one for the Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes.

 I'm a bit of a movie buff, and some of my  favourite movies were released in the 1990s  (93 - Jurassic Park; 94 - Shawshank Redemption; 95 - Usual Suspects & Toy Story; 97 - Good Will Hunting; 99 - The Matrix & The Sixth Sense)  Well, I took my inspiration from a rather famous scene in the Sixth Sense.... only, I changed it up a little...

I found this free clip art online, and I couldn't resist.  
I typed up the sentiments using free fonts 
The font on the front is called "Goofball"
 - and the on the inside is "Chiller"

That luscious design paper is October Afternoon - from their Night Light line.  Love it!

Thanks for poppin' by!  Time to catch a few zzzzz's.  That alarm clock goes off kinda early around here (dang alarm!)

So jealous that you can find cool clip art on the internet and making a rockin card! love the green on it and how did you get his blanket to match the pp

I love the vines you did with your Silhouette. I don't use mine enough and it intimidates me. Did you have to buy that image?

And like the wild paper in Fierce card!
