Happy Birthday to my sister Joy! I hope you have a great day! It is also my cousin Lexie's birthday and it was our great-grandfather's birthday too. Very important day in our family. For Joy's card, I took a little inspiration from a t-shirt that one of my students wore. I cut out the flower background using my Storybook Cricut cartridge. Then, I cut out the owl using Happily Ever After. (This is the first time I have used either cartridge and I like how they turned out.
The cartridges offered so many more shapes and characters than it shows on the box.) It looked kind of plain so I sprinkled blue glitter around the edge and then added all of the blue and orange flowers with white brads in the middle. Now that I look at it, it looks nothing like the t-shirt but I still love both. I hope she likes it! And, I hope the Cardinals win today. This town has been in a red bird frenzy all week. Today, either "you know where" freezes over and we go to the Super Bowl or this town goes into quite the depression. I am hoping for freezing temperatures!
