 I did a little paper piecing on the aprons and her dress, and both the images and sentiments are raised up on pop dots.
 The sentiment is Sizzlin (Sku #3473):

In The Bag

 I wanted to do something a little different for my Art Impressions post today... so I decided to do a circle card, and then wanted to make it a more interesting shape, so I ended up using my Cricut to cut a flower shape from some patterned paper.  My image from In The Bag (Sku # 4729) fit perfectly as a circle in the center:
 Then I decided to make it into an easel card:
 Here's a back view:

Duck Stackers

 I hope you're loving the newly released Ai Stackers from Art Impressions as much as I am!  They're a hoot to colour, and the die makes assembly so easy.  Here is Duck Stackers (Sku #4738):
 I made a flip version of my card, and switched up the stripes:
 And here it is with the pull tab pulled out of it's slot:

Texting BFF

Hello Ai fans!
I have a couple of fun birthday cards to share today, using the clear set Hot Java Mama (Sku # AiCS32) which is available exclusively at Hobby Lobby stores:
This is the perfect image for me... being a late December baby, literally all of my friends from school are older than me!!  I can hardly wait to send a few of these cards out to them (grin)!  I used some kraft cardstock for my base & mats, and added some pink zigzag stitching with my sewing machine.  Here are close up views of each of them:

 This is a wonderful stamp set with two large images, two small images, and seven sentiments!  Check it out at Hobby Lobby.
Copics used: Skin tones - E11, E00, E000, R20
Greens - YG05, YG03, YG01, YG00
Pinks - R35, R32, R30
Yellows - Y38, Y35, Y32
Browns - E55, E53, E51, E50
Greys - C1, C00, C3
