You're a Q.T. Pie


Another school year is coming to an end. Just two more days and the kids are off to Summer Break. I can hardly believe that I made it through the year!

As I sat in the den on Monday morning, I couldn't help but think of my girls and how much they have grown. They make me laugh all the time with their goofy antics and before I know it, I had started working on a riddle card for them.


Using Silhouette Studio, I imported several different images from my Lettering Delights library. TwinA loves to doodle and that inspired me to use the LD Doodledeedoo on the card. The sketches are so her!


I re-sized and positioned the images, added offsets and gave that a doodling effect by using the sketch tool. Once I was happy with how the elements were laid out, I printed the cards and trimmed them down to size with my rotary cutter.


As I looked at the finished cards, it dawned upon me that I could make flashcards notecards. A little bit of printing and trimming and corner-rounding, and the cards were done. Ha! And just like that, I made 3 cards out of 1 card design! *patting self on the back* 


I showed the girls the card when they got back from school, and while it took them only half a second to solve the riddle, I did get a chuckle out of them. In case you are wondering what the card is all about, well....


...my kids are Q.T. Pies.

Get it? Cutie pies?

Ha!
