Birthday cards for Joyce and Wini

My GF Joyce celebrated her birthday the day after Nolan's. Here's the card I made for her. I decided to dust off my cricut and use my new cartridge called Create a Critter that I bought over a month ago. I love the critters on this cartridge, super cute! I decided to use this cute Panda. I also used 3M adhesive craft paper on all the parts to create the panda. It made putting this panda together super easy! Just peel and stick!! I'm gonna have to stock up on more colors so making more critters will be super easy. Looks like a walking trip to Fisher Hawaii during my lunch next week! Just in case you've never tried this self adhesive craft paper before, I gotta tell you that it is so easy to use. And cutting it in my cricut is not a problem either.
BTW, I typed up the sentiment on my computer using the font called won ton...and I used the sentiment "ai yah" on the front of the card because Joyce has vanity plates on her car that says "ai yah"...she got a kick out of it!
Other supplies used for the card - nesties frame (and I left in the cut out for a solid center), bling, oval punches (SU). And here's another birthday card I made. This one is for my partner in crime, Wini, who celebrated her bday in May. Do you love this huge flower?? Got it from Little C's. Nesties to cut out the shaker window and TGF image is from a cute set called Roll Call...got that from Tamikos! Colored the image using my copies, I thought the greens blended pretty good...that's Wini's favorite color!
Thanks for popping in today!! I have more to share so stop back in soon!
