Cards - You Made Cards?

Yes I did! And pigs didn't fly!  :)

But first before cards I wanted to share with you a layout of my sweet Priscilla and her cupcake cake. The reason she is laughing (it is not my horrible cake decorating skills!) is because Faith stopped at the fridge on the way and got the milk. Priscilla thought it was funny for some reason and all Faith could say was you have to have milk if you have cake! So we are not sure why Priscilla was so tickled by Faith's appearance with the jug of milk but she was!

I used the Apron Strings August Smaller Than a Breadbox Kit to create my layout. I used the Jillibean Spotted Owl Soup Papers as well as an Echo Park Splash sticker that was in the add ons for the kit. That sticker is found in the title  - I believe it read Just Add Water so I covered Water with a label from Pretty Little Studio and the word Milk!

The owls were begging to be fussy cut - I love their expressions. It seems like they wanted to be anywhere else then sitting a perch that I created with some twine! And since I could not fussy cut the balloon string of the middle owl I used embroidery floss to recreate the string.

Just Add Milk

Completed these challenges:
Sketch - Pretty Little Studio
Use Pearls Challenge - Crop Stop
Add Thread Challenge - Paper Variety
And now the cards! I do not make cards often - they are generally for a specific purpose that we'll say starts in ten minutes - kwim?!
But this time I sat down with the scraps from my Apron Strings August Smaller Than a Breadbox Kit and made a few cards using sketches from Sassy Lil' Sketches.
The first is very simple using pieces from the Lily Bee papers in the kit.
Here is the sketch:

And my interpretation!
And the next card using scraps from my Apron Strings August Smaller Than a Breadbox Kit. I used the Echo Park Splash papers for this one and of course added some googly eyes!
Here is the sketch:
And my interpretation-

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
