Birthday Wishes & Bonus recipe for Molasses Cookies

Birthday card using the Artiste Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart. These cards are simple to make with the Cricut! Add some paper pieces to one side, sew a square on the remaining space and mount the "B" with 3-D tape. I added some flowers and a sentiment. I enjoy using the bold color of "Lagoon" from CTMH! The small amount of ribbon added just the right touch of brown. Paper used is from the CTMH Stella collection, cocoa cardstock and colonial white.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend! Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Perhaps you'd like an awesome recipe for Molasses Cookies?
