Fun in the sun


This was so much fun to make.  Colored the Flamingo image from Bugaboo stamps using Gimp. 
 (I couldn't find this flamingo image in the Bugaboo store to link it up.) 
Also created the blue and green patterned papers in Gimp.



Printed all the pages, then cut out everything with my Silhouette Cameo using cut file 93718 from the Silhouette store.   This is for the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.

Hey there cookie




Another card for the little ones at the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.  I created the cookie paper by drawing a chocolate chip cookie in Gimp using the pencil tool.  Colored the cookie using Gimp.  Saved it as a pattern then filled my white paper with it.  I made the cookie paper because I wanted it to match this darling mouse munching on a cookie image which I downloaded for free from the Gerda Steiner store.   Colored the mouse image in GIMP with the bucket fill tool and the paint brush tool so it matches the colors of the cookies on my paper.  Opened everything in Silhouette Studio, printed, then cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo.
