Made my first apron with my Mom's help. I picked out the brown multi colored polka dot fabric and the sparkling green fabric from Joann's. I used the Silhouette to cut out Kiss The Cook from pink flock. Super easy! I made this for our Anything But A Card item for Card Club. Congrats to Robyn for winning it and thanks for taking the picture!

Another Silhouette SD Card

So this is another card kit die cut from the Silhouette SD. Super easy to put together...the envelope is the pot and the insert is the flowers. I stamped the insert for a cute little birthday card. Now we just have to see if people realize they are supposed to pull the flowers out for the message!
