Happy Thanksgiving to Whoo Whoo!

Hi Crafters!  Here is a little card I made using my Silhouette.  I bought the image from Miss Kate Cuttables, you can buy the image HERE.  I thought it was super cute so I just had to make it.  :)  Super simple card.

Zombie Birthday

My nephew loves zombies. I guess they are the thing right now.  :)  I found this cut at the Silhouette store and thought it was perfect. I didn't want to make it bloody gross so I kept it simple. He loved it. Super simple boy card...

To make the stripes in the background I embossed the white cardstock w/ the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder then lightly ran the blank ink pad over the embossed area.

 The perfect boys card.  :)  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fall Leaves

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne and I are doing our Cookie Card Challenge. I'm lucky enough to steal one of her cookie designs and make it into a card and she takes one of my cards and makes it into a cookie.  Super Fun!

I was looking through her Thanksgiving cookies and saw these super cute leaves I knew I wanted to recreate them. 

 Seriously, how cute are those???  :)  To see her post on these cookies go HERE.  And here is my take on these cookies:

Framed Silhouette Pet Images

Hi Crafters!   Today's project is a gift for my friend.  My friend watched my dogs while I was at my sisters wedding.  It was for 5 days.   She also has 2 dogs and a cat so she had 5 pets with her.  My dogs I'm sure had a blast hanging out w/ her and her other 2 dogs and had fun torturing her cat.   lol :)   I wanted to give her a little something as a thank you.  I was SO grateful that they were with her instead of in a kennel.  It was a relief for me and I knew I didn't have to worry about them.  So I found this image of this framed silhouette dog and wanted to try to recreate it:

I loved it but it cost over $200.  Definitely couldn't pay for that so I thought I would make my own.  I thought I could put strips of ribbon behind my silhouettes and get a similar look.  What happened was I put the silhouette in the frame to protect it while I searched for the right ribbon and fell in love w/ the simple look and thought it would work perfectly.  The background color is from the back of the frame.

The cuts come from the Silhouette store.  The little corner design is from a damask design, it's the tip of the cut.  The frames are 10"x10".  The paper is just plain old white cardstock.  :)

For delivery I wrapped a thick blue ribbon around it:

She loved it!  Thanks for stopping by!
