More from Marlee's Birthday

I'm a posting slacker, I know. Marlee's birthday was Monday and if you read Monday's post you know that I was making some treat to take to school for her class.Well here it is, I made the kids dirt cups complete with worms :)
Yes, they tasted as good as they look. Needless to say Mrs. Byers is a BIG hit at Little Shepherd's pre-school. If you want the recipe just email me I'd be glad to share it with you.
I also made Marlee a Snow White birthday card because that's her current, favorite Princess. She'll tell you she loves them all but there's always the on she likes best. It started with Cinderella, then Sleeping Cutie (as she called her) now Snow White. I'll let you know when it changes:)

This card also happens to fit the Just Buggin' challenge for layered diecuts. The Disney characters are a bit elaborate, but I already did the work so I might as well get credit for it?
I use Cricut Design Studio to layout all the pieces so I knew just where to place my colors of card stock. She's cut at 7" and this made a 6"x8" card. Pretty nice size. There was enough room to add some Prima flowers and a swatch of velvet ribbon (got to be extra girly for Marlee). The back ground card stock is DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies Stack 'cuz Marlee LOVES flowers and butterflies. Marlee's name shows up horribly in the photo, I used my Cricut and Cricut markers to "draw" her name then added glittery embossing powder to make it sparkle ( I tried Stickles first, but couldn't get a fine enough line). I also dusted Snow White's dress with some Pebbles shimmer chalk but it doesn't show in the photo.
