I knew what I wanted to do with the candles, and I thought that I'd have to cut them all out on my own ~ but then I pulled out my Cricut cartridges and I found something that would work for a candle base. It was on the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge. Then I needed something for the candle flame. I used one of the leaves on the Walk in my Garden cartridge, it was perfect! Now for the cake. I had no idea. I really thought that the cake was going to look kinda funky - what would I use??
So my book for Walk in my Garden was kinda tossed over to the right of my desk and I looked and I found it!! I knew what I was going to use. Can you guess?? It is actually 2 flower pots from Walk in my Garden. The bottom is the full flower pot cut out of Chocolate Chip card stock at 4". The top layer is a flower pot cut out at 3". Then I cut some daises on the border setting for the "piping" on the cake. I was so happy that the cake turned out. I so hope that she likes it!!
The best part of it was I used up a lot of scraps that I had laying around!
That's all I that I have for you today. We've got some storms coming so I think that I'll shut the computer down for a while. I hope that you have a super great afternoon!
