CWC Birthday Blog Hop

I'm so glad you're here!

Welcome to the CookingWithCricut/ PaperCraftingWorld Designers' June Blog Hop. I hope you're ready for two days of great projects with each day showcasing different designers and projects. If you have come from Jill's blog then you are moving right along. If you would like to start from the beginning, please head over to Cooking with Cricut.

This month our hop theme is all about Birthdays with one special birthday in mind. Our wonderful DT Coordinator, Jen Hudson’s, birthday just happened to fall on Saturday so we decided to make birthday inspired projects with a “Jen” theme in mind. Our go-to gal is a die-hard Florida Gator Fan, so we decided to use elements on our projects that reflected Our GATOR FOR LIFE Gal’s PASSION; Florida, The Florida Gators and anything that would make you think of the Sunshine State. Jen is the last stop on our blog line up so be sure to hop through and leave her some extra special love at the end!

I'm sending Jen this Florida and Gator inspired birthday card. 

I used the rectangle card feature from the Life is a Beach cartridge.  I've never used this feature before but it has so many possibilities, especially for photo frame cards.  The gator is from Birthday Bash and the sentiment is from MS Elegant Cakes.  I used a K&Co stack for the 2-sided patterned paper (actually found an orange and blue combo!). A little inking, some googly eyes, gems, and twine and the card was ready to be mailed.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JEN!!!  You are an awesome person and a gifted designer!!!

Be sure to stop by Cooking with Cricut and leave a comment for your chance to win some great blog candy!     
  
  Now on to your next stop, the talented Suzanne - Cricut Craftin Grammy.

Be sure to hop again tomorrow as you'll see a different set of projects presented by more members of our talented design team. Just start at CWC.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn

Larelyn,

Great card for Jen. I love the way you designed the card to have an open window on the front. I know it was hard for you to not put a Razorback on there! LOL. At least Jen and her Gators are part of the SEC.
