Unicorn Cards

I cased these from Pinterest.  Nan at Silver Thimble Yarn and Quilt Shop, 
where I like to go shop needed a card for her granddaughter.  I offered to make one 
so I could make unicorn cards.  Her granddaughter is 5, and adores unicorns.

I drew the euelashes.  The curve for the id I did from a framelit shape.
Retired flower punches, and lots of ribbon.


This one uses the Fox punch.  I used the fox head for the body, 
and trimmed the fox body, for the head.  They turned out so cute.



Why yes, I do believe in Unicorns.  
If you do too, here is a Unicorn cookie recipe.

Both cards are so fun! I like both but something is just so cute about the eyelashes on the first one. But, I like the fox punch idea too. I have that punch but have yet to play with it. I will be playing with it and making different critters for the hospitalized kids.

I am not sure about unicorns, or I don't have an opinion one way or the other. The cookies sound kinda good. I finally mailed off what seemed like a zillion Valentines for the hospitalized kid project. They were to basically be all different or no more than 4 alike with no embelishments etc that could pose as a choking hazard. Anyway, they are in the mail.
