Football Season Begins

This card was made with the print and cut feature on my Silhouette.

The football Taz is from the Silhouette online store.
I created the field goal posts from a picture online in my Silhouette Studio.
The grass is from Little Scraps of Heaven Design.
The embossing is from the James' Set by Cuttlebug.
And the sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper Sport-tastic Stamp Set.

Dusty Crophopper

I created this card with a graphic from Disney Clips.
I used paper that I found at Michael's.  
The orange and blue are from the Marocains pack.
The green is from the Trucks and Trains pack,
and the brown is the Kraft brown.
It is awesome that my Stampin' Up inks coordinated so well with these papers!
I used Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey and Crumb Cake to ink around my images.

My clouds are found on the Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge,
the corn is from Paper Doll Dress Up,
and the dirt is from Best of Pixar.
I used foam squares to attach the larger corn and Dusty.

Here is another thing I LOVE about my Silhouette!
I downloaded this lizard as a coloring book page and was able to use my silhouette studio 
(I do have the upgraded version, but I don't know if that matters in this case), 
to break the image apart, color it and put it back together.  
 I then used the print and cut feature to cut it out!

It does take a little while to create the colored image, 
but once I have it done it's saved on my computer for easy access next time I need it!
I will try to find the amazing you tube tutorial where I learned how to do this... 
if I can find it again!
I found it!!!  The you tube tutorial was created by cricflix.
Look up her projects you will be amazed and inspired!!!

Thank you, Thank you very much!

Found this Elvis bear on Paper Piecings by Nikki.
It was a freebie off of her site!!!

My mother-in-law is a huge Elvis fan and I thought she would enjoy this Elvis thank you card.
The background embossing is from the Sizzix Birthday Surprise set.

Downloaded this adorable Tweety bird print and cut from the Silhouette store.  
All of there licensed images are 50% off right now.
I love how simple and quick it is to print and cut!!!

I felt the card needed a little something else when I was done.
Unfortunately I couldn't find a lightning bolt in any of the stores I frequent.  
This is what I LOVE about silhouette...I found an image online, downloaded it to my silhouette, 
sized it and then clicked on the rhinestone feature and TADA...I had a custom made rhinestone template!!!  I printed it out and then simply used my Imaginesce I Rock tool to adhere the rhinestones.

Spa Socks Cupcakes

Found this cute idea on  joyslife.com.
These cute little cupcakes are actually spa socks rolled up and placed in a cupcake wrapper.
 Place a cherry on top (red pom pom) and you are done.

Here is a tutorial on youtube that shows how they are made.
