April Birthday Blog hop April 8th-10th

Welcome to the Birthday Blog Hop. If you are coming from 
 Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot then you are on the right track, If you just happened to stumble on to me then please go back and start on her page. YOU do not want to miss this hop she has great Blog Candy from some of the best sponsors that I love to use. I'm sure I am not the only one :)

Ok now on to my good stuff...Since I'm new to this blog world I do not have many followers so, if I can get  100 followers I will give some candy away too!! Just become a follower and leave me a comment that you have and I will use to select a winner.

Here is what I have for the blog candy: a set of 4 coordinating Pooh stickers, 
  lemonade stand stickers (summer is around the corner), winter "license plates" and a stamp set.

Before we move on to my project, I want to give a big THANK YOU to Gloria for asking me to be on her DT for her first ever blog hop! A true honor for me especially since I am new to this wonderful world of blogging and designing.

On to my project I made a birthday card for Gloria she loooveeesss Goofy so I just knew I had to have him in it. I lloooovvveee Donald  and after looking in the Mickey and Friends cartridge I thought of how cute it would be to have them both be in it :)

This is a standard A2 card (4 1/4 X 5 1/2).   I used googly eyes and stickles on the hats (after I posted the picture I went back and put more stickles on Goofy's lower part of the hat). Goofy is cut at 3.17 x 4.65 and Donald  3.20 x 4.29  they were designed on my gypsy and I didn't cut out a shadow because the layer with the detail was cut out in black. All the papers were from what I have and on the smaller pieces I used my scraps.

In the inside I wanted to incorporate her love for Disney. I was going to make a tag separately but ended up deciding to put it inside. I used a stamp for the happy birthday . The oval is from George and Basic Shapes cut at 4.45 x 6.02. The Heart and the Disney are from the same mickey and friends cart. Heart was cut at 3.71 x 3.12 and Disney  was 4.89 x 3.12.
I hope you enjoy my card and that you may get as inspired as others have inspired me.

Glorias' beautiful daughter Jazmine made this:

The Goofy is a stamp image that she colored in and the sentiment is from  Pink by Design from the stamp set "Take the cake".

Get Whale Soon

This A2 card was made using the Just Beacuse and Crete a Critter cartridges. The whale is from Create a Critter but the saying came from Just Beacuse. The saying is 2.65x3.71 and the whale is 2.77x2.53. On the whale I used stickles for her tail and for above her head, Peachy Keen Stamps PK- 755 Critter Faces "Large". I also used light blue eyelets on the corners to bring in some water element, the back ground is grey. It still seemed a little plain so I added white stitching to the "get whale soon". I am very happy with the results.Hope you enjoy. TFL!
