A Wild & Cute Baby Shower!

I've been working temporarily in Virginia for the last few weeks and one of my new co-workers is having a baby.  The rest of the staff wanted to throw a small shower for he and his wife so you know I couldn't resist making a few decorations!!

I used the Create-A-Critter cartridge to cut out the cute little animals and DonJuan for font on the front of the box.  I used a silk flower block inside of the box and then attached lollipop sticks to the back each character to hold them in place.  I shredded a few sheets of green paper (different shades) to make the 'grass' and was all done!  I think they came out pretty cute for a last minute project!

"Paws"-ing to Say Thank You

This is a card I made for a neighbor to say thanks for being so kind.  She is always extra nice to me when we happen to meet outside and I just wanted to say thanks!  I apprecirate great neighors!

I've had the DCWV Pets Stack *forever* and have never had an occasion to use it until now.  So I created this A2 card using Kraft paper, and three different pieces of the Pets stack layered together.  It was super simple, but she certainly appreciated it...and I appreciate that! LOL
