**giveaway closed**Meighan & Nicole's Birthday Blog Hop

 LOOKING TO JOIN MY LATEST CHALLENGE ( VALENTINE'S DAY PROJECT NOT A CARD)?? PRIZE SPRING HOLIDAY CARDS CRICUT CARTRIDGE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES  2-9-11 at Midnight PST.  CLICK HERE


 Hey friends.


I am currently STILL having major issues with youtube, so the video I recorded for this project will have to come later.

I am so happy to be apart of the Birthday Blog-aversery Blog Hop that Nicol And Meighan have put together.

The theme for this blog hop was Holiday Inspired Birthdays and immediately when I heard of this theme, i instantly thought of my little brother's birthday and Fourth of July. Even though his birthday is not until July, I quickly got started on an idea for his card. His Birthday falls 2 days after 4th of July and nearly always has a red white and blue theme since the those party supplies are always on a good sale in time for his party.


Here is my card I created.

I used B is for Boy to cut the robot at 2 inches, I used my gypsy to hide contour the face cuts.
I cut a range of stars from George & Basic Shapes from .5-1.5 inches in Red and Blue with the largest being white star

I cut the navy blue cardstock at 4x5 inches then attached 1 inch circles in the same navy blue cardstock onto it to make it appear to be embossed with large polka dots. I then sliced the bottom of the piece at an angle.

I then went ahead and layed my robot onto that cardstock piece and the parts that overhung the angled cut I trimmed off using my scissors.

I arranged the trim of stars across the diagonal angle I created alternating colors.

The number 6 is cut from Birthday Bash font at 1.25 inches

Using my Sakura Microperm pen I doodled a cute face onto the robot as well as a dial onto him, I colored his face and dial using a Copic Marker

The sentiment stamp comes from Scrappy Moms Stamps Happy Hauntings.

I hope you enjoyed my card.

For my Blog candy for this hop I am offering a 10 dollar gift certificate to PEACHY KEEN STAMPS.
