My friend went to the bakery to get a small unicorn themed cake for her 3 year old granddaughter's birthday.  It was very expensive.  So I made her this cake topper using Cricut Access in Design Space.  It turned out so darn cute

My Grand niece Sophie celebrated her first birthday this weekend.  The theme of the party was Mermaids.  She had so much fun carrying a giant seahorse balloon around.   I decided to capture the moment in a scrapbook page.  I began with a sheet of Echo Park "Lets Be Mermaids" cardstock.  I cut the frame and mermaid in Cricut Design Space.  Then I added a big Mint Julep and Berry Sorbet bow.

My Brother in Law, Norm, is a fabulous gardener.  I made this card for his birthday.  I am also entering this into the Art Impressions Challenge 236- Masculine Cards.  All of the stamps and the sentiment are from the His and Hers Gardeners set.  I began by stamping the guy, then I covered him with a Post It mask.  Then I stamped the lady behind him.  The images were water colored with Marvy Markers.  I fussy cut all of the images.  The inspiration for the step style card came from AI DT member Renee.  The designer papers are Bella Blvd-Barnyard

Every Saturday for the past 25 years I have been meeting a group of women for coffee.  We have been through a lot of sad and happy times together.  My friend Elaine and her husband John are celebrating 50 years of marriage.  Her children threw a fantastic party.  I made this special card for them.
I began by embossing some AG metallic gold card stock.  Then I added a band of DL.ART Whipped Cream crinkle ribbon from the Creamy Dreamy Bundle .  This bundle is perfect for weddings and anniversarys.  I cut 2 medallions using an Anna Griffin Cricut cartridge.  I popped them up with foam tape.  Then I added the 50th cut.
