Hi Everyone!  In the blogging world, you meet a lot of amazing people.  One person that my mom and I met through our blog was a lady named, Barbara.  Now Barbara is an incredibly talented, funny, and full of life lady.  She is having her 70th birthday this month and my mom and I were asked by another blogging friend to make her a birthday card.  Barbara’s friend was trying to get 70 cards made by her blogging friends to give to Barbara.  So of course, Mom and I were more than happy to make something special for her.

I decided to make a card using the “Holiday Bird” digi by Melissa.  I’ve had this digi for a while but had never used it.  I pulled out my Cricut Design Studio files because I remembered that I had made a file using Mickey Font and Alphalicious that would cut out numbers on side of the card.  I revised the file to cut out the number 70.

I cut out the card using my Cricut Expression and covered it with patterned paper covered in “birds” and then I popped the “Holiday Bird” digi that I colored with Promarkers to the center of the card.  I tied ribbon around the card and popped the sentiment “A little birdie said” on the front. 
Here is a picture of the front

And here is a picture of the inside of the card
