Catching up - again

First, let me share with you the First Birthday card I made for my sweet Granddaughter.  She will be ONE on Saturday.  The party theme is owls and I used this cute one from my Cricut Create a Critter cartridge.  I used my Imagine and colored in the owl using various Imagine carts and then for the hat and branch, I cut using Better Together all in Cricut CraftRoom.

The green "feathers" are from a jewel flower that I cut apart (didn't have any tear drop ones) .  The "1" on the hat was from my stash of chipboard stuff and the "Birthday Wishes" is a rub on from My Sentiments Exactly.  

I've been busy making other cards, too.  I recently got a Grand Madison Window die from Poppy Stamps ( ) and made this card using A Little Bit Sketchy "Cheers" from Crafters Companion. 

I found a few butterflies from my stash and added a Spellbinder banner die for the Birthday Blessings. 

Lastly, I friend of mine made a memo pad for me out of a Kleenex box and it inspired me to make some from the Cool Touch ones that I used when I had a sinus infection last month.  These cube boxes have a really neat blue foil finish and I found that it embossed beautifully.  So, here is my memo pad:

I added Gross Grain ribbon on the front to cover the "Kleenex" wording and a flower.  I bound it with my Bind It All and white wire.

The back was left with the "Kleenex" showing.  The stamp is from Stampin' Up and stamped in Stazon.  I love the "give your trash a 2nd chance"!
