FIF Challenge & CPS Challenge...

Good morning everyone!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!  I know I had fun!  I got to spend more time with my husband in 3 days then I did all week!  So it was good for me.  Saturday he had to work, but I got to hang out with him at his office while he did.  Sunday he had off work and we hung out by the pool for a bit.  Monday he had to work, but it was a short day for him.  All in all it was a good weekend! 

Yesterday I managed to get 2 cards done for challenges!  I was super excited!  I feel like I haven't done anything in forever.  Last week was NUTS for me, but things should be getting back to normal work-wise.  I'm starting a new shift, so I have mornings off and can get some things done.  I don't know how long it will last, but I think I might like going in at 1230pm and getting off at 6pm.  We'll see...

Anyway....onto the cards.  Both of them are for fathers day, but this first one is for the Flaunt It Fridays Challenge.  The only rule was to use the Robotz cartridge.  I was super excited about this one, bc I have been dying to use this cartridge.  I have used it for font, but not the cute lil robots.  So here is what I came up with....

I'm finding it a little difficult to match up the shaped cards "perfectly."  For this card, I added a white layer on the inside so you can write in it.  It's showing more then I would like.  Any advice on that is welcome!

-CTMH card stock - Goldrush, Twilight, White
-Black card stock is from WalMart
-Robotz Cricut Cartridge - Robot cut at 5.5" in height using Gypsy
-Stickles - Black Diamond
-Pink by Design stamp set - Our Fathers (inside reads "hope your special day measures up")
-CTMH ink - Black

This next card is for the CPS Card Sketch Challenge.  Here's what I came up with....

-Card 4.25"x5.5"
-CTMH paper pack - Magnifique
-CTMH Ink - Pacifica, Lagoon & Sky
-CTMH button - blue assortment
-Ribbon - eBay
-Imaginisce gems (used i-Rock)

I think your robotz card is fantastic!! I think I would have just used a piece of white on the inside like you did on the front for the message. It is really hard to match up the shapes sometimes. If you cut them a little smaller, they will work on certain shapes but not on all. Thank you for 'flaunting' your stuff with us at Flaunt It Fridays!!! I really like your other card also!! :)
