Special Day Birthday Card





This card is for my nephew who will be 11 years old soon. We decided that it would be more fun to spend the day with him than to give him just another toy. Our plans are to take him out to eat, to see the movie "How To Train Your Dragon" or to go bowling and then we would end the day with him spending the night at our house. Somewhere in there we will probably end up going to the store and letting him pick out something he would like. I am hoping that he likes this gift and is as excited about the day as we are. Lots of Cricut cuts on this one from lots of different carts. I was in a rush to finish so I am disappointed that I didn't have more time to embellish with ink and chalk.
Card Details:
M for McDonalds: Two letter U's from George welded together

Hi Julie,
I'm new to the whole world of paper crafting and received a cricut expression for Christmas. Your blog is SO cute with incredible creativity. I have a quick question specifically about the doodle charms cartridge. I couldn't find a way to message you directly so if you have a chance would you send me a quick email aebean12@yahoo.com -I'm trying to make a cupcake birthday invitation for my soon to be 1 year old!
