Bildmalarna Cafe Mimosa

I couldn't wait to color up my first Bildmalarna. A group of us ladies on the cricut message boards do a magnolia Stamp Buy & Swap and it was suggested to do the same with the Bildmalarna stamps. I couldn't resist.
She's Cafe Mimosa and I made her up for a birthday card for my mother's 70'th birthday. She loves to quilt and sew so I chose some Cosmo Cricket paper with stitching and some lace that she had given me. I think it turned out perfect for her.
 Here's a close up of the image. I aded stickles to her bow and buttons and her whipped topping. The flowers were a gift from one of the ladies that participates in my image swaps. I added stickles to the outer petals for some extra bling.
I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think of my first Bildmalarna.
I've entered this cutie in the Bildmalarna Blog Pink Challenge

Cute as a Button

The cricut circle blog is having a challenge called Cute as a Button and as soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do. This will be the last page in my sons baby album. I only have two more pages to do and it will be finished!! Yippeeeee!!
The challenge was to use buttons, at least two cricut cuts, and a stamp. I stamped the balloons and then cut them out. I tied embroidery floss around them for the string and a bow finished them off. Cute in the title, the dog in his adorable hat and the pinwheel all came from Create a Critter. The rest of the title is cut from Cursive 101.

I hope you enjoy the layout as much as I do. I think it's too stinkin cute!! LOL
I have several more pages done that I'll be uploading in the next few days.
