Happy Birthday Cuz!

Happy Birthday to my cousin Rhonda! 

Rhonda and I are only 9 months apart and practically grew up like much that we even dressed alike and everyone thought we were twins!  haha!  We were pretty much inseparable growing up and did everything together!  When school was out for the summer, that's where I was until the week before school started up again....I think my aunt and uncle often wondered if they could claim me on their taxes!  Haha!

But anyway, for her birthday I created this card.....and I know she likes frogs so I cut the Create A Critter frog and its layers on pg. 24 at 2.75".  I used my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder to emboss the frog.  I also cut the phrase bubble on pg.60 at 2" (flipped it over so it was pointing at the frog) and stamped it with a $1 "Happy Birthday" stamp I picked up at Mighty Dollar.  I added these to the front of the card with pop dots.  I also cut the lily pad at 2.75" and added a cute little butterfly paper button from Creative Memories with pop dots.  I used my Martha Stewart Doily Punch on the bottom of the card as well.

On the inside I added a strip of the same green paper used for the frog and used the punch on it as well.  I cut the other phrase bubble on pg 60 at 2" as well and added it as a "pink puffy cloud".  (Hey it's pretend, so it can be pink, right?)  :)  Then I added a green stem I had from a pack of Jolee's (I think) flowers, and added another Creative Memories paper button with the Spring Green Traditional Bakers Twine tied in a bow in the center of it.  Then I used my set of My Craft Spot stamps for the sentiment.

She loved this card.....and I love her!  :)

Happy Birthday Rhonda!

Love your cuz,
