Angry bird invitations

Not surprisingly, my soon-to-be 7 year-old son wants an Angry Bird Party this year. 

Unfortunately there are no Cricut cartridges with Angry birds on them!!!!!!!!, so I got out the Gypsy and made my own.  This is probably my first real attempt at making something myself on the Gypsy.

The beak is diamond shaped and folded in half so it opens.

The party is on Friday.  Looking forward to it!

Same same

Here are two layouts I've done recently, both using the same design template.  I don't know about you, but I can't always come up with new designs every time... And if you like a layout then why not???

Happy 40th

Happy 40th to my dear friend Lesley!  Great weekend away to celebrate the big occasion too. 

And with all the washi tape I have bought recently, every project might just have to be 'washied'!

Happy Birthday Davy!

Happy birthday to my brother-in-law David!

I made him this record album type card (since he's in to music and vinyl).  I made the vinyl sleeve using Cricut cartridge 'Tags, Bags & Boxes' and the actual record using 'Nifty Fifties'.

Happy Birthday Little Lady

A birthday card for a little lady! Ladybird cut using Cricut cartridge 'Paisley' (I think!) and phrase from using 'Birthday Bash'.  Easy card to made and oh so cute.

I cut out two black ladybird shapes and lopped the head off one!  Layered the red on top of the headless ladybird and added brads so the wings could swing and reveal the words.

Check out other critters on Fantabulous Cricut Challenge for their 'Cute as a Bug' challenge.
