Now onto my projects..... I decided to make a birthday card for Alex along with a birthday present which is a layout I made just for her special event today!
Isn't this the cutest funniest looking animal on the planet!?! I love him! I cut him from Birthday Bash and stamped the eyes with Peachy Keen Stamps. I hand cut the tag and stamped the Party Animal sentiment from Pink By Design Stamps. I added some stickles and some ribbon to the card. I also cut the actual card base from Birthday Bash too.
Here is a layout I made for alex since I know us ladies will be taking plenty of pics at our Meet and Greet. I also used Birthday Bash for the 2 birds, title and banner. I used 2 different MS punches to create the borders and added some ribbon to the swirly border. I also did some embossing with my Cuttlebug, inking and i added stickles to the birds and banner and some bling "eye" to the bottom bird and put a larger blue piece of bling to the top birds hat. Oh and I also stamped the face with Peachy Keen Stamps.
Now onto some Blog Candy! I will be giving away this Brand New 8x8 Fiskars "Good Times Quotes" Stamp set to one of my Followers all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me about your favorite birthday memory. Mine was on my 25th B-Day I went on vacation to Mazatlan Mexico for a week....that was a pretty sweet birthday present thanks hubby!! =)
