It's Your Birthday - Eat Something Cute

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! Brrrrr, it is SO cold here in West Virginia. We got a little bit of snow yesterday, but what is worse is the wind. It just chills you to the bone. I hope wherever you are, you are staying nice and warm. :)

For my card today, I decided to join in a challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps. I discovered these great sentiment stamps a while back when I was blog surfing various Cricut blogs and fell in love with them. They go so wonderfully, not just with Cricut projects, but with stamping projects too. Unfortunately, I don't own any of the stamps yet, but hopefully that will change soon :) Scrappy Moms Stamps started their first challenge this past Tuesday (called the Terrific Tuesday Challenge) and I decided to participate. Our challenge was to use the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (or a similar cut from another cartridge if you don't have Birthday Bash). Here is what I came up with:






I just love this little kitten coming out of the cake, he's just too cute! :) I cut the image out at 4 1/4" and put all the pieces together. Next I added pearls to the frosting so it would look like sprinkles. I then created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I added some pearls in the corners and a bow tied with my Bow Easy. For a finishing touch, I also added some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Stampin Up (I think it's a current hostess set, but I'm not 100% sure on that). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I'm sorry I haven't been commenting or posting much the last couple of weeks. Work has been insane! I had forgotten until someone reminded me yesterday that we get Monday off so I'm so excited! I'm looking forward to a much needed rest and some time in the craft room. :) Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon.
