It Runs in the Family!

We all love the Cricut here in my house!  My 19 year old that is home from college!  Go BYU Cougars!  She needed a birthday card and of course didn't want one of my premade. 

Here's what she came up with:

I am so impressed with how fast she put this together! 

Giraffe was cut from New Arrival cartridge.
Mesh Cuttlebug embossing folder was used on the Chocolate Chip layer.

I am also proud of my 15 year old son and must tell on him!  He was in the kitchen with me when my daughter brought her card to show me.  I told her maybe she should take a marker and draw in the eyes and mouth so they would show up better.  Then my son says, "and how about some Googlie Eyes!"  YES, I love him!  He doesn't craft but he can definitely carry on a conversation about it!  I must be raising him right! LOL!!

Thanks for checking in today!
