"It's Your Birthday" Blog Hop

Welcome to our January Art Philosophy Blog Hop! We are starting a new year of blog hops for you all featuring Close to My Heart's exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge is available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.

This month we are featuring a "birthday" theme for you.  In this hop, you will see projects featuring this versatile cartridge from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy our blog hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.   If you came from Priscilla of  Priscilla's Paperie then you are in the right place!

My daughter will be turning 12 soon (and hopefully she doesn't see this) so I decided to make her card early for once! :)  The card is cut from page 60 of the catalog. <shift> <Card>.
I found this awesome prismatic paper and immediately thought one of the cutout cards and some confetti would be awesome.
I think she's likely to be mad about the mess she'll make when she opens the cards but it will be fun.  I made small presents, stars, and some welded (with my Gypsy) 12's to match the 12 on the card.

Your next stop on our birthday hop is Theodora of Celebrate Crafts.
