It is so fun to be ONE!

Woot! Woot! It is Friday and we are in full P-A-R-T-Y mode!

If you are hopping along the “blogiversary ” going on over at Everyday is an Occasion you are in the right place! If you are here by chance, you are in for a treat!  Jill from Every Day is an Occasion is celebrating her one year blogiversary! Today you will be hopping from blog to blog gathering birthday inspiration.  AND she has some amazing CHA crafting swag she scored over this summer for her goodie bag giveaway!

My birthday inspiration came from the delights of one of my many weekly Target runs.  Yes, I said Target!  I saw  a card in the stationary section that caught my eye and when I almost summoned up the courage to think I may buy it, I realized that I could so easily make this and save the million dollars $4.99 they wanted for it. Duh!!! Yes, sometimes I loose my mind and forget that I have a 300 square foot crafting island in my house.  I blame that moment of insanity on the blinding bright lights of Target and my kids nagging me to get over to the toy department so they can add to their already mile long Santa list.

So here is what I came up with!


This is a Samantha Walker cut that can be found at the Silhouette Store.  It was super easy to put together and all I did was copy the base of the image and flip it and weld the two bases together to form a “fold” card.  If you need a good tutorial on welding with your Silhouette, click HERE.
I inked the edges and added some bling and buttons and had a lot of fun playing with the fun features of this card.  How cool is the “cone holder”? I added some baker’s twine and more bling and buttons to finish off the cone
I added sentiments from the retired My Pink Stamper Collection under the scoop flaps for more sweet surprises.
This card was a lot of fun make and I know it will bring a smile to any birthday celebration!
Be sure not to forget to head over to the “Birthday Blog” and get yourself in the giveaway mix!
