Snappy Birthday to You!

Good Morning!'s Friday...hope you have wonderful weekend plans!  My sweet Emma (granddaughter) is spending the night with us tonight and I know I will have a busy weekend!  I think we may go see the movie
Gnomeo & Juliet...anyone seen this yet?  Looks like a cutie.  I'm thankful she isn't old enough to want to see
Justin Bieber....I'm NOT ready for that!

I finally broke out my Birthday Bash cartridge last a fun cart!  I've had this one for awhile and just haven't had a chance to play with it (story of my life).

I'm trying to build up my stash of birthday cards and this is the perfect cart for doing just that....

Isn't this just the cutest little guy?


* Paper - from a stack that no longer has a cover...sorry
*Turtle - Birthday Bash cartridge page 47 cut at 3 inches
*I ran the body of the turtle through my Cuttlebug using the Sizzix "Burlap" folder, then inked him up with Ranger's "Shabby Shutters" ink
*I used my white gel pen to add stitching around his shell and dots on the shell
*Black background mat was cut with Nestabilities "Small Deckled Mega Rectangles" die
*Tag was cut with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge at 1 3/4 inches and stamped with a
My Pink Stamper stamp, I used a red gel pen around the edges
*Button and rickrack are from my stash and I found the Memory Thread at Michael's

I love this Memory Thread....thanks again to Joy Sykes for introducing me to this stuff!

Well...hope you enjoyed my card.  I've got to get moving and get a few things done before Emma gets home from school.  I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Until next time,
