celebrate your birthday!

I hadsome birthday cards to make, so it's been a little bit of a break from all the Christmas cards and projects I've been doing! I've been diligently working on my caramels today. I just decided to take a little break and let my arm muscles recoup before I start on the next batch! LOL!
This adorable little elephant is from Our Craft Lounge. Isn't it cute??!! I used the elephant from Dr Peanut that is splayed out on the ground. When I first got this stamp set, I was looking through all the wonderful images and notice that if I turned Peanut around, it looked like he was doing a handstand! So how cute is he for a big CELEBRATE card! I used the elephant and the grass from Dr Peanut and the balloons, birthday hat, and Happy Birthday are from Lil Peanut. The elephant footprints on the ribbon are also from Lil Peanut. I layered on cardstock with my nesties, and the tag is from my Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cartridge that I cut with my Cricut Expression machine.

Oh, the little present on the tag is from Lil Peanut too! Paper is Basic Grey and I used my Martha Stewart border punch for some layering. Celebrate is a stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms by Kim Hughes! I LOVE her stamps! She's amazing! I colored all the stamped images with my Copic markers.
That's about it! Thanks for dropping by and visiting me today! I sure do appreciate you! It's back to work tomorrow, but for right now...I'm headed back to the kitchen. I hear some sugar and pecans calling my name!! HUGS!!
