If Friends Were Flowers...

I wanted to do a few special cards for my friends that are dear to my heart.  I had seen something similar on another blog (flowerdiscosscraphut); so decided to use the wording "If Friends Were Flowers, I'd Pick You!' and put my spin on it.  My mom called me yesterday crying telling me this meant the world to her and it was perfect timing.

I used the little pom pom girl from the Cricut Decals cartridge on page 63.  I clipped off the pom pom and added my own silk flower embellishing with Martha Stewart Glitter (Fire Opal, Lapis, and Kunzite) along with little skittles.  I embossed the background using the Scrollwork Cuttlebug folder. 

Thanks for taking a look.

Mom & Dad's Anniversary Card

I love this anniversary card I made for my parents.  I really wasn't sure what the final outcome would be.  I picked a few images from the Sweethearts cartridge and ended up with a double layered card.  The inside of the first layer has Happy Anniversary cut and glittered.  I also used my first Action Wobble on the larger heart with the couple image.

Daddy's Birthday Card

This is the birthday card I made for my dad.  He loves the old classic cars and I thought this image from the Nifty Fifties cartridge was perfect.  I used glitter paper so it would appear like it has a metallic paint job.
