Pumpkin Time

I am participating in the FCCB #80 Challenge-Pumpkin Time.  The rules are simply to use a pumpkin in your project. 
I recently purchased a Cricut Cake machine so I decide to make some pumpkin cookies. I watched a tutorial by The Crafty Kitchen on cutting cookies and it was sooo helpful.  This is only the second project I have created with the Cricut Cake.  I think I did a better job this time, it was easier and quicker since I had practice.   I also decided to make a matching card to go with my cookie.  I tried to take a pic with the cookie and card together but it didn't turn out. 

You might be wondering what happened to the other cookies.  Well, we ate them all up. They were yummy. ;)

What I used:

Pumpkin cookie
Machine-Cricut Cake
Cart- Create a Critter
Base of cookie-Sugar Cookie dough (The Crafty Kitchen)
Layer 1-Fondant (Duff Goldmans- from Michaels)

Pumpkin Card
Machine- Expression
Gypsy- to weld base together
Cart- Create a Critter
Paper- kraft cardstock and Cricut 6x12 paper
Other- ATG, Stampin up Choc. chip ink

Mickey Ears Birthday Card

  My nephew turned one on March 1st and his birthday party is tomorrow.  He is having a Mickey themed birthday party so I decided to make him a card that looks like the Mickey ears you can get at Disney World.  I had a little bit of a ruff time with this card.  I don't have a Disney\Mickey cart so I used my gypsy to weld circles and ovals together from George and Basic Shapes to make it.  Through lots of trial and error I finally came up with a version I could live with.  I think it looks much better in person.   Hope you like it!!

Here is what I used:

Cart- George and Basic shapes and Doodletype
paper- Bazzill
ribbon- black satin-Papertrey Ink and the skinny black ribbon is from my stash
Disney embellishment
Font- LD walt from lettering delight
Other- white gel pen, ATG, Gypsy

My hat and the card
