A Snake for Jake




I just thought that I would pop in today and share a fun card that I made for a birthday party that my son went to today. I used one of the cuttlekids dies that I bought for my munchkins and put together this silly snake card in under an hour (that's record time for me! lol). The race was on this morning when I realized that I hadn't made a card to attach to the present yet - yikes!



If you haven't tried these cute little dies yet then you don't know what your missing especially if you have little ones around! I just think that they are so adorable and are certainly a life saver when you are in need of a quick kids card :) I may or may not have purchased almost all of the cuttlekids animals available when I found them on sale...but I'm not sayin' for sure ;)

Anyway, I hope that you liked my quickie card for the day and I'm off to see if there is an inner Julia Child's in me...it's dinner time baby! :)

This is a wonderful card and even though you say you threw it together, it is amazing as usual! I will have to check out the cuttle kids dies. They sound so cute!

This is adorable! I love that little snake and I love the way you have created such amazing contrast with the dark bordering paper. Gorgeous card!

This is adorable and as always...so rich in colors.... what I love about your medium of choice. I tell you, if I ever get those Tombows...I am blaming it all on you sister! Love it! I just also love all the black trim on your cards, sets of the brightness so perfectly! :)
