Birthday Blog Hop for Ashley!

I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

I want to start of by saying Thanks to Ashley for the invitation to be part of this hop. If you got here from Darlene, then you are on the right track! But, if you just happen to pop in here then head on over to Ashley, the birthday girl and the beginning of this fabulous hop!!! 

Ashley asked us to create something to celebrate birthdays and to incorporate animals.... but, I am still not home!!! So, I created this cricut-less birthday card! 

I did use the Cuttlebug, Spellbinders and Scrappy Mom's stamps.

What is a Hop without candy?!?! Leave a comment and a lucky winner will win a collection of stickers!

Your next stop is:

and just in case you need the line up... here it is:

can't wait till you get home so i can see what all you create this year. even without the cricut it's still a great card.

Anne said...

Love your card and it's kinda cool that you didn't use the same Cricut cartridge everyone else has used so far. Even though their designs are adorable, it's always fun to see something different. Great job!

I *always* love cards with twine used like that! Your card's so cute, you (dare I say it?) don't really even need to put a Cricut critter in it!

You mentioned using your cuddle bug, but I can't really make out anything in the pictures...?
