A Snappy Birthday Card

Here's the post I wanted to make yesterday!  My laptop will not turn on and I'm about to take it to the Geek Squad.  It's sounds easy to fix, but we'll see.  I had to load my camera software on the one other computer in the house, but it just doesn't work the same as on the laptop.  I really hope to get it fixed and back today (I am very spoiled and used to having that!)  I had already typed up the post Thursday night, so here you go!


Hi everyone!!  Thanks so much for all the sweet comments on my 1st My Pink Designer post from Thursday.  I feel so honored to be on Robyn's design team and to work with the other fabulous ladies on the team!!

This card is actually very neutral for me.  I did not add any stickles or extra bling (except the eyes)  so I could give it to a boy.  This is very rare for me as I'm much better at making girly cards!

I used Create a Critter for all the cuts.  The turtle is cut at 2 1/4 inches and the grass at 2 inches.  All the paper is from DCWV Spring Stack.  I used the Spots & Dots Cuttlebug folder for the background and self-stick brown ribbon.  I just had to add a little bling, and those are i rock gems for his eyes (I was sent a replacement and so far, so good!).  The stamp is from MPS More Punny-licious, of course!
