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!
