Nicolette, this one's for you...
One of my very favorite bloggy buddies, Nicolette of Beyond Scrappin', is sharing her birthday with us by hosting a BIRTHDAY BASH BLOG HOP, and the theme is Disney.
I'm your last stop of 25 or so ... if you're joining me before hitting the rest of the terrific bloggers, please start at Nicolette's blog (click HERE), wish her a happy birthday, and tell her I sent you!
Now I think I remember ... (and you may know how that "think" is tough, since I've celebrated far more birthdays than Nicolette!) ... that Nicolette's favorite color combo is pink, black, and silver. As a result, I dressed Minnie in Nicolette's favorite colors (a pink leopard-print paper!) and posed her in front of her very own Mouse House.
I created the Mouse House from an SCAL cut, using my Cricut Expression (yes, you can still cut using SCAL and your Cricut, despite what you may have heard).
I cut Minnie using the Cricut "Mickey and Friends" cartridge, the word "happy" is cut in a glitter cardstock. I found it by relying on my good friend SHAWN's "My Cut Search" program (typed in the word "happy" in the search) and there I found it on my "A Child's Year" cartridge. I would have never looked there!!
For the B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y bubbles, I simply printed the letters on pink paper (using the Mickey font) and punched them out using a 3/4" Marvy punch. Both of the butterflies are from Creative Charms; the larger one "flies" on beading wire.
The pink roof lifts off for treats or a gift.
NOW, speaking of GIFT ... how would you like a chance at some blog candy in Nicolette's favorite colors?! I've got a terrifically sweet DESIGNER CARD KIT by Momenta with the makings for 12 note cards made by little ol' YOU!
The kit has cards, envelopes, borders, gems, and stickers, and it was given to me by the sweet people at Momenta to give away to one of my followers.
To qualify, please be a follower, and leave a comment on this post. In the comment, be sure to leave me a way to reach you should you be lucky enough to win the candy.
I'll be leaving this post up and active June 1 and 2, throughout the hop. I'm just doing one post for the two days, as my new job causes me to have too little time up here in the Paper Jungle, alas ... at least until I get into a routine! Bear with me!!
Thank you for hopping with us!
♥ Happy Birthday, Nicolette!! ♥
