Girly Shirley!

I just love this 'girly' Shirley cut file from My Scrap Chick! I can't wait to dress up her sisters, Goodness and Mercy too!
You can find the three chicks file HERE.

I made these for two very dear friends that had birthdays this week. Of course I had to use cherry papers since I work at a Cherry plant!

I made Shirley as a standing card by making a mirror of the front body piece and stapled the top at the head pieces, tucking it into her bonnet to hide the closure.   I did make two sets of leggies(doubling the legs for strength)-so that means I cut 8 legs. To finish Shirley off, I did a little chalking and added a few accents with a white Kirarina Wink pen. Her wing and sunflower are added with pop dots. Inside I used a Paper Smooches Hey Chickie sentiment and wrote Happy Birthday below that. 

This would make a darling Mother's Day card don't you think?

65 Mustang Birthday Card

Silhouette Challenges

Challenge #36 "Anything Goes"
Starts: April 1
Ends: April 30

Welcome to the April Anything Goes Challenge over at 
We would love, love, love to see what you are doing with your machine these days!

Today I am showing off a guy card! My sweetie had a birthday and he told me he wanted a 65 this is as close as I could get LOL!

This is a cut file from the Silhouette Store designed by Megan Hardy.  It cut so nicely, but fair warning...this is a BIG card. I cut it to size and it turned out to be 10.5 inches long. That posed a wee bit of a challenge to photograph...the darned thing would not fit in my light box!  

It was easy to put together...I must say I fell in love with the tires-they are so fun-check out the close up !

I am entering the following challenges:
