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.

So Many Eyes!

Hi Crafters and Bakers! Welcome to my tiny spot on the web. Today is the fun day where LilaLoa, aka Georganne, and I take inspiration off of each others work. I get to choose one of her adorable cookies and make a paper project off of that and she chooses one of my cards and makes a cookie off of that.  Have to say, one of my favorite days of the month to see what she has done.  :)  On to the show...

I have a ton of nieces and nephews so I always try and have multiple birthday cards on hand.  I saw these cookies of Georganne's and I had to recreate the one w/ the eyes.  Check out her blog post on these HERE.


I LOVE ALL of those EYES!!!  I knew I just had to do googlie eyes on my monster.  They jiggle and everything.  :)



Thanks for stopping by!  If you haven't yet be sure to stop by the LilaLoa website to see what Georganne made and to check out all her other yummy creations.  She's amazing.

You're Out of this World Awesome!

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today is the Cookie Card Challenge.  Woo Hoo! This is the time that I get to make a card based off of one of LilaLoa's cookies.  I love finding inspiration in different places for my cards and her cookies are fabulous inspiration.  Try it sometime!

I didn't want to make a valentines day card but I saw these cute V-Day cookies and I needed to use it for my inspiration.  So I flipped it to a birthday card.  The following are her cookies and you can find her post about them HERE.


 The following is my card.  I have to say I love how it turned out. 


I used my Cricut Explore for this card and it cuts fabulously, love the writing pen option (used it on the message), and easy to use software.  

 
I added a bit of glitter.  lol  I also added a black gem for the eye.  Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to the LilaLoa blog to see her cookie that she made off of one of my paper projects.
