Episode 109: Cookie & Card Challenge - Spring

Hi Crafters and Bakers!  I'm so excited for today's post.  My cousin Georganne and I are doing a monthly challenge with each other, it will be on the first Friday of the month.  Georganne is a FABULOUS and MOST TALENTED cookie and cake designer.  Her blog is called Lila Loa and you definitely need to check her designs out.  She also is the most talented writer.  Seriously, her posts are so funny!  :)  Our challenge with each other is that I will choose a cookie or cake that she has done and make it into a card and she will choose one of my cards and make it into a cookie.  How fun is that???  :)  So onto our first Cookie and Card Challenge...

When I first saw the cookie that I chose for this months challenge I thought to myself 'I HAVE to make this into a card, I love it!'  So I did.  :)  Here is the cookie that I chose:

Seriously, isn't it the cutest???   Now I don't know if she is going to go as literal as I did but I copied this cookie down to almost every little dot.  That's what she gets for giving me permission to copy her cookie.  lol  :)


I got a new toy for as my graduation present from my parents.  They got me the Silhouette Cameo!  I'm so excited to use it.  I used the Cameo for this card.  I also used my ultra thick paper from PaperTrey Ink and it cut beautifully, even the letters!  Don't worry, I'll still use my Cricut a lot but it's fun to have a new toy to make things with.  I also colored those pearls.  More details on that in the video.



Be sure to head on over to her blog, Lila Loa, to see what she made of mine.  I can't wait to see either!  :)

Card Dimensions:  5x5"

OH. MY. GOODNESS. PAM!!! My mouth is still open. I'm not afraid to say that I really liked that cookie when I made it...but THAT CARD!! Its so sharp and such a better use of all the space and I actually don't even understand how you do all of that with paper....and I adore you. That is all.

I think of this cookie ALL. THE. TIME. One of my favorites of hers, so I totally get why you chose it. And, oh my word, how you totally did it justice. You guys are both so amazingly talented! Perhaps you guys should do giveaways every month - the winner gets the matching card and cookie!?!? Or, you could just send them to me... : )

Congrats on your Silhouette Cameo! Don't you just love how well it cuts out circles! (sigh) Also, this card is absolutely amazing! Same with that mouth watering cookie! MMMmmmm! Such talent in the family.

Loving the card and the challenge is such a fabulous idea. I have a Silhouette SD, which I love, but I would love a Cameo at some point in the future.
