made for each other

well shoot! i just made the title for this post "made for each other" and i'm thinking that should have been the sentiment on my card instead of what i used! nuts! ha ha! oh well!

moving on...

i just finished a card for the latest lawnscaping challenge - pick one of kelly marie's cards and CASE it! first of all, all of her cards are amazing and beautiful! so how do you improve on that?! i decided you can't, so instead i used her card as inspiration for mine. as soon as she posted this card a (month or so ago), i was instantly in love with it! so i knew i would use that card for my inspiration. here is the original lawn fawn card:

see? how can i compete with that?? ha ha!
here is what i decided to do:

it's a squre card with an off center-ed circle border in the middle. i used glitter-y yellow thickers for the sentiment - and i originally went with bff's because well, milk and cookies seem to always be together! (especially in this house. my husband is a stickler for having milk whenever he has cookies. he has even NOT eaten a cookie because we were out of milk. now, that's a little nuts and i even tease him about that. cookies are good by themselves too!!) but as i mentioned earlier, i think 'made for each other' would have worked even better! :)

back to the card. i popped up the milk and cookies stamp (which i also paper pieced); do i even have to say that they're lawn fawn? :) the circle border thing is also popped up. i used another stamp to make the background of the card. it says, 'friends are the chocolate chips in the cookies of life'.

so that's my card! :)


  1. What a cute card! I love the colored background and the dimensional images.. First of all, thanks a lot! You have me craving milk and cookies, lol! Seriously, your card is so cute and I love it. I love your sentiment AND the title of your post too so that just means you can make another card identical to this with that sentiment! :) Post it up here again and you'll have another entry and another chance at winning the grand prize at the end of the year! Cute and colorful! Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for playing along with the Lawnscaping Challenge! :)

  2. too cute!!! Where did you get the background stamp?

  3. How Adorable! I love the bright colors and the fun circle window. This card is so utterly cute and it would be such a great gift to any friend.

  4. This is so much fun! Love how you interpreted Kelly's card.


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
