Happy Birthday!

Today is my birthday! I want to remind you of my birthday present last year- see it here- Ha! Wasn't that the sweetest thing?

Now it is a year later... and it's a Penguin party!!!!

I made the card with the Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge, the penguin was made in the 4 inch setting. The sentiment is from the Opposites Attract cartridge, with a 1.5 inch setting. The '1' is a Penny Black stamp, colored with a Copic and blinged up with white glitter. The little guy's hat is a purchased embellishment, from K&Co, but a few years ago.

The card base is 5.25 inches square, made from green Amuse tiny check cardstock. it's great paper for cards since it is plain white on the back, and a heavy stock, so it makes into a perfect printed front card,

Inside-the sentiment is from Opposites Attract, with Liquid Applique (to replicate icing).

See the bag behind the Penguin gift holder? I glued on a new copy of the movie, 'March of the Penguins', then added a few more 1's around on the bag. The Penguin gift holder is an After Christmas special purchase, lol, .99 cents at Hallmark yesterday!!!

I gave Alex the cake pops book for Christmas, and look what she came up with! I didn't get any great close up pics, but if you click on it to enlarge, I think you will get a better view.

She was so sweet to make Wes and I both cakes!

Lol, he hasn't had much in the way of sweet things in his short life!!

As soon as he brought his head up from the first lick, he laughed loud and long!! So did the rest of us!!

He definitely loved the cake, and was quite the ham!
It was a fun, fun, day; it will make me smile on my birthday for years to come to share it with such a happy little boy!!

Oh my goodness. I think I might overdose on the glorious cuteness contained in this post. Both the card and the wee cutie have definitely put a big smile on my face for sure. Thanks for that!
