Happy Birthday and Baked with Love



Hello and happy Friday.  Well, I finally jumped into the Slimline Card fad, inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #446.  I ordered the Mama Elephant Slim Window Dressing dies, with the idea that they might make it easier to make a slimline card, and I was right.  It was a real creative stretch to think about making a card with these different dimensions, but I am happy with my results.




Here are some additional pictures of the different sections.





All these little critters are from Mama Elephant Bookworm and Little Chickie Agenda, and I would highlight the dog reading the book outside the middle window--for Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #165: D is for Dogs and the bird, flower and stenciled background inside the windows for Seize the Birthday #196: Tic Tac Toe (bird, flower, stencil).




I am entering both this card and the next card at Watercooler Wednesday #282: Anything Goes.










I really had fun with this next card.  I was initially inspired by the challenge at Use Your Stuff #402: Family Fun.  Now that my nest is full again, with my 2 kids home from college, we have spent many evenings together watching the Great British Baking show together.  We have also started baking more, possibly inspired by the show.  My card reflects our watching baking together as well as baking together for ourselves and our neighbors and friends.  I am also entering this card at Stay Crafty with Hero #12: Friendship and A Blog Named Hero July: Embossing.








Thanks for Visiting

  3. Your first slimline card is certainly a winner! I haven't invested in any slimline-specific tools yet, but I can see where they would make the process a little bit easier. What a cute slimline scene! Also, reading. <3 Love the retro tv and the little baking show on the second card! Thanks for entering that first card at the Sisterhood and Seize the Birthday!
