Daffodil Thank You Card - Cookie Challenge!

Hello Crafters & Bakers! Today LilaLoa and I are doing our Cookie Card Challenge. I chose the following Daffodil cookies to make a paper project off of.  They are so pretty and I just love the dimension to them.  Isn't she just amazing???  You can see her post about these cookies HERE.

I found this really pretty Daffodil in my Cricut Library.  It was one flat flower w/ a shadow behind it so I cut out the main image in two different colors and paper pieced them together for my flower image.  I love how this turned out.

My Cricut also wrote out the Thank You for my message.  I love this pen option with the new Cricut Explore machine.  I hardly use my message stamps anymore because I have this feature.

I also bought a new Anna Griffith Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.  I usually tend for more simple designs but I wanted to try this one out and I just loved it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to drop by LilaLoa's blog to see what cookies she made off of one of my card designs!  :)

Eagle Scout Card

I can't remember if I shared this one yet or not. I couldn't find it so I'm guessing not. If I did, here it is again. :) I found the image by searching Eagle Scout Cartoon. I used the print and cut feature on my silhouette. For the background paper I searched for an image of boy scout patches.   It was originally a darker image but I faded the paper.  It turned out a lot better than I thought.  It's simple but works perfectly.

Don't you just love this Eagle?  I love his smile.  :)

Simple Grad Card

Hi Crafters! Today I wanted to share a simple graduation card I made for my sister to give her niece-in-law. What I tend to do is to use the schools colors and the mascot if I can. It makes it more personable.  So the colors were a deep purple, black & white.  I added the silver for a little more pizazz.  The mascot is a mountain lion.  I found the image I used just by Googling 'Mountain Lion Silhouette'.  I meant to emboss the purple paper for extra detail but forgot.  Now I feel like something is missing from it.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Scene Cookie Card

Hi Crafters and Bakers!  Welcome to the Cookie Card Challenge!  Today is my lucky day where I borrow one of my cousins cookie designs to make my card and she uses one of my cards to make a cookie design.  Today I'm basing my card off of some mushroom and flower cookies she made to go with a fairy cookie she made off of one of my card designs.  Confusing enough for us?  :)  Here are her cookies and you can see her post HERE.

Here is the card I made.  I feel like something is missing still, just not sure what.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to LilaLoa's blog to see what other amazing creations she's made.

A 'Sorry I Nipped You' Card

So my adorable little guy Tavis nipped the mailwoman. No joke. I'm sure I can enter some type of cliche here. Luckily she was wearing jeans. No skin was broken but he did leave a mark. A little side note on Tavis, I found out that he came from a puppy mill and has some health problems, as well as some mental issues. He is really neurotic and nervous. We don't let him near strangers because it makes him worse. Unfortunately we were caught off guard yesterday. After he nipped at the mailwoman he ran downstairs and hid. I felt so bad for her and for Tavis.  I made a card last night to plead apologies to her.  She has been our mailwoman since we lived there, 10+ years. So hopefully this will put us back in her good graces.   She was really nice about it yesterday and said she was alright.  Fingers crossed.

Here is the card I made her:

Here is a pic of Tavis.  He's not very big and weighs about 15 lbs.
