I'm Still Here!

Just in case if any of you were wondering if I was still here...I am!   I have been sooooo incredibly busy trying to prepare for my daughter's 10th birthday party (which is today)  that I have had absolutely no time to even look at my blog let alone any other blogs.  I will be posting some of my creations for her party very soon, so stay tuned!

St. Patrick's Day - 1st Birthday Elmo card

So you might think this is just a St. Patrick's Day card...well you're wrong!  This is actually a birthday card for a sweet little girl who is turning 1 on St. Patrick's Day!  Earlier in the year when I first saw this Cricut cartridge I just knew I had to have it and I got it as apart of my Valentine gifts...YAY ME!!!  I just love all the Sesame Street characters and so does my 2 year old daughter.  I know I will get many uses from this cartridge and this is just the beginning.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Design Studio
  • Elmo & Friends Holiday Cricut cartridge - Elmo
  • Life's a Party Cricut cartridge - "Happy Birthday"
  • Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge - 1st
  • Martha Stewart flocking powder (ladybug) - Elmo
  • brads
  • "celebrate" wooden stamp (Michael's $1.00 bin)
  • ric rac
  • foam squares - just to pop up Elmo

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I had some challenges with this card but all in all I am pleased with it.  I know the little girl who is turning 1 will never know what challenges I had.  It was a fun card to make and who can resist Elmo!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my St. Patrick's Day - 1st Birthday Elmo card!
