You're My Friendosaurus

My hubby and I got to spend some time in my favorite little tourist town about an hour away on Monday.  It's a little Bavarian themed town with lots of fun shops to go in and out of, wonderful food and a beautiful setting.  I saved some money from our yard sale the previous weekend so I could purchase *something* if I found it.  Well, I found it!  I got myself and a friend a quilted flower apron.  It is beautiful and I love it so much!  I know, I know...what does friendosaurus have to do with it, right?  Well, the card I made to go with the apron for my friend has a dino on it!  Check it out!
 So, there is that cute little dino!  I just love it!  The dino is from KaDoodle Bug Designs and it looks like it is retiring soon so if you like this dino get on over there and pick it up!  There are a total of seven files in Cute Little Dino and on sale for 75¢!! The card layout is from SVG Cutting Files and the sentiment is from Jaded Blossoms using one of the sets I got in the recent huge sale they had.  It's called Dinotastic and I used my new Boarder Dies from Jaded Blossom for the pieces that the dino is 'stepping' on.    
And above here is the apron I got for myself.  I love (again) the scallops and the big pretty, bright flowers.

Yesterday was Amazon Prime Day...they touted it as a HUGE sale better than black Friday but I think most Prime members were seriously disappointed. I missed a fab deal on the blender I've been wanting but I got an amazing deal on the Instant Pot that I've been drooling over for awhile.  Yay!  Now to find lots and lots of recipes for it.  I think it could save a ton of time in the kitchen!  How about you?  Did you get something you'd been hoping for?

Cute Lori...about your question on my blog...I take the base layer of the item that I'm using...then I shadow it...keep that one...then I copy another shadow...and Mirror it above...then use the down button on the top reflected image until the mirrored images overlap...then I weld them...once folded you have a chopped off card image...then I apply my last shadowed image over the card...and voila...you have a shape card...I use a Silhouette Cameo machine for this with the designer edition.
