Cooking with Cricut Challenge #21

Today's challenge is to make something with two shades of green. With that and S.t Patrick's day, it would have made sense to make a St. Patrick's Day card, but I didn't need a St. Patrick's Day card, I needed a baby shower card, so here's what I made:

The baby in the buggy is from simply charmed (3"), the face stamp is a Peachy Keen Stamp and the sentiment is SU. All paper is plain cardstock and the Cuttlebug embossing folder is Seeing Spots.

Remember, for more inspiration, you can stop by the Cooking With Cricut home page to see what the other chefs have cooked up for you this week.  Then create your own GREEN project (remember to use your Cricut or other cutter) so that you can enter our challenge this week.  You have until Tuesday of next week to enter to become eligible for our prizes!  Just link your project back to our homepage.

A cake for a Baby Shower!

I can't take all the credit for this cake. While I did do the baking and stacking, my wonderful husband built and painted the model airplane that is the topper and my cousin Austin made the fondant clouds. The two tiers are different flavors- the bottom is a devil's food with cream cheese filling and the top tier is snickerdoodle with cinnamon buttercream frosting stolen from my friend Kami's blog at Everyday Heaven. That is one recipe you will not be sorry you tried!

An apology and a winner

Fellow crafters,
I have to apologize for being remiss in posting- and more especially for dropping the ball on announcing our winner for the blog hop. Without further ado, our winner is:
