The Birthday Ambassador Strikes Again!

Wow! Have these last few months been busy, or what?!  I thought that after we pulled off the shower, I would get to 'rest' for a few weeks-- but then I looked at my calendar and realized that I had 4 birthdays to make cards for in the month March!  And many of them are within days of each other!  Whew!  So I donned my Birthday Ambassador cape and got to work...

This first card was my supervisor.  He doesn't like to make a big deal about his birthday and really didn't want a card- but I wasn't going to pass his day up like that!  He *loves* dogs, so the Create-A-Critter Cricut cartridge provided the cute little terrier.  The fence and grass were cut from the Paper Dolls cartridge.  The sentiment was inspired by the 'Ruff Ruff' phrase on usually hidden corny side came up with the rest of the saying...LOL

I have been wanting to try flocking for a long time and decided to give it a whirl on this card, and it was so much easier than I thought it was going to be!  For my time trying it- I think the flocking came out pretty nice!

This card was made during a 'Crafternoon' I was having with my friends for a dear co-worker who is really a beautiful person!  I wanted to make something simple yet lovely for her...and I feel like I achieved my vision.  The designer paper is from the DCWV All About Girls stack and the butterfly (my absolute fav!) was cut from the Indie Art cartridge.
To add some dimension to the card, I made the butterfly 3D.  I really hope she likes this card, I feel like it's so "her"! :o)

Last but certainly not least, here's the third card that had me chuckling the entire time I made it!  This particular co-worker looooooves (and I'm so serious about this!) BACON!  So I knew without a shadow of a doubt that his card could feature nothing else!  For this card I simple googled 'bacon' and eventually came across this cool image.  As a side note: I was * completely* surprised at the huge following bacon has all around the world! Before yesterday- I had never heard of bacon flavored syrup or a doughnut with bacon sprinkled on top...who knew?!
The sentiment is courtesy of my corny side once again.  But I do think that my inner-corniness helps when I'm acting as Birthday Ambassador! LOL

3 down, 1 to go!  At least I have a few days before I have to make that one!  Thanks for stopping by!
