Hello and welcome here from the fun blog stop at DD's blog. If you want to start all the way at the beginning of this VERY large and exciting hop you can go all the way back to Meighan's Blog.
Have a Hoggy Birthday...well, Ground "hog" Day anyway. Yes, February 2nd has now come and gone this very week, and many would not perhaps consider it a worthy holiday for Birthday wishes. But, this day happens to my son Jordan's birthday. He was kind enough to his mom on February 2nd back in 1990 not to try to climb back in after he saw his shadow! (thank you son!) My boy is now officially a man! He turned 21 and so I decided to get creative with my cricut and whip out a cute little card to send to him.
I of course had to give my Create a Critter cartridge some use. I couldn't find an actual groundhog but decided the hedgehog was fairly close....it has "hog" in it's name. Right?
I also cut out the "21"using the Sweet Treats Cartridge because I couldn't find exactly what I wanted the outside of the card to say. I kept thinking over some good lines from the movie, "Groundhog's Day"...my top 2 picks were:
"I like to see a man of advancing years throwing caution to the wind. It's inspiring in a way."
"This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."But, in the end I decided to put the funny on the inside.
But wait...that's not all! What's a birthday hop without some birthday presents? I am going to give away one of my digi-stamps to 5 lucky (albeit random) visitors. All you have to do is leave a comment below and become a follower at my blog (if you aren't already) and I will let random generator choose 5 winners of the digi-stamp below. This is original and drawn by me, and just in time for your Valentine's crafting.And so, there you have it. It's simple and sweet as things usually are when made with the cricut and that's the beauty of it. I hope you enjoy this and the other posts. There is still a lot more to see so please check out the next stop along this birthday hop with Melanie.
Here is the full line-up of all the blogs on this hop. Have a blast! I know I am!
