Friday Randomness

Hi Friends

Happy Friday!  I want to thank you all for your great response to the Lawn Fawn Cards for Kids Drive.  The response was great, and I am so grateful for your sweet comments.  I am way behind on reading and commenting on blogs, but I plan to do some catching up this weekend.  I just love seeing what my blogging friends are creating. I know I’ll be inspired.

Today I thought I’d share a couple of things. First, a friend of mine had me make her daughter’s birthday invitations and decorations for her cupcakes. You can see the invites here.  Today, I thought I’d share what the cupcake toppers looked like on the cupcakes.


The second thing I want to share is a card that I made for the CARDS Create blog. 


I was elated that I was asked to be the CARDS August Designer of the Month awhile back. CARDS is a wonderful, inspiring publication.  It was the first magazine in which I had anything published, so this was really special for me.  Northridge publishing has a blog called Create for their various publications, and they have a feature for their monthly designer. For August, that included me.  You can find the interview and post here.

I almost didn’t post about this because I do not want to sound like I am bragging.  I am really still in a state of disbelief, I cannot believe they asked me.  I do want to encourage any of you who are interested in being published to go for it. 

As you can tell from the card above, it is filled with Lawn Fawn goodness.  I used Critters in the Burbs, Petite Florals, How Delightful and Partly Cloudy to make it.  It is not a card that you could easily mass produce. There was a lot of coloring, cutting and embossing on it.  I just had a good time playing and went with it.  I wanted a fun scene, and this is the result.  All the instructions and supplies for the card are detailed on the Create Blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
