Strawberry Shortcake Pets

Look how cute she is! Her name is Marmalade! And she is a friend of Strawberry Shortcake cartoon/toys characters. Another free svg finding from internet. Hard to believe how many free images you can find on the internet and cut them with your Cameo. Oh, and if I did not mention it, it cuts perfect every time!

LPS Kitty Card

I love my Cameo. Not only because it cuts perfectly, but because I can cut any image and don't even have to buy it. My younger daughters have been playing with Littlest Pet Shop toys for a couple of months and when I saw these images on Mardenz blog I was so excited. Here is one of six images that can be found there.
I guess you can't satisfy everyone, when my daughter Dana saw this and heard me saying-Woo!Hoo! I can cut anything.-She asked-Can you cut iCarly? Duh! Mmmm...not sure.
Thanks to Diane for the beautiful ribbon, it adds a lot to a simple card.

Crocheted Marshmallow Peeps for my friends

I am happy to post this card today. I made it for my "first American friend in life" (according to my daughter Dana) Diane. I had so much fun crocheting these cute little bunnies. Little did I know how hard it would be to finish their little faces. I tried so many things, digging in my stash of beads, needles and thread to make them look real. Nothing helped, either the wrong needle or the big beads. I had to re-sew the eyes and noses several times. But in the end I loved them so much I had to kiss them. All the members of my family had to say how cute they are, no matter if they really thought so or I just made them say it.

I cut the basket using my Cameo machine and the image is from Silhouette store.

My Other Hobby

I haven't made too many cards recently but it does not mean I am not making anything. I am obsessed with crochet flowers, motifs and appliques. Once I searched the internet and could not find too many patterns, but just this week I remembered to look at (I don't know why I never learned to use it, it gives so many ideas) and I was so surprised to find so many interesting patterns and tutorials that I want to try them all. I feel ashamed I am not using my new Cameo, but in fact I am just dying to use it more. I think I want to try so much stuff that it's hard to pick where to start.
Here are some pictures of the crochet motifs I made recently. Enjoy!
