Getting Cricky Preview Week -- Day Four -- Happy Bird-day!! :)

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! :) It's DAY FOUR of the Getting Cricky Pre-Hop Week, and I'm super excited to show you my card today... I've just been having a BLAST trying to come up with non-owl uses for the Owly Hoo Stamp Art Sentiment Set (there are a TON of OWL ideas though -- be sure to check the stamp set out!!)...

And remember to mark your calendars for THIS Friday night, January 20th at 9pm EST...  Cuz that's when my fabulous Design Team Sisters and I will be showing you our Getting Cricky "U R SO SWEET" Valentine Blog Hop!!  You will be AMAZED at all of the AWESOME projects we'll be featuring with our FAVORITE K Andrew Designs Stamp Sets!! :)

For my project today, I've created a Happy Birthday BIRD-day card!!  :)  Tweet!!  Tweet!! :)
I embossed the background cardstock with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder.  The bird is cut at 3.5" in all layers from the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge.  I found the talk bubble on the Smiley Cards Cricut Cartridge and sized that with my gypsy to about 1.5"x1.5". 
My "extra" flowers were punched with the Creative Memories Friendship Micro Maker Punch (it's soon to be discontinued, but you can still find it here while supplies last).  The gems are from Creative Charms, and the ribbon was a clearance rack grab-bag find (if you LOVE it like I do, be sure to find out how to make some YOURS this Friday!!)...  Everything is distressed with SU!'s Creamy Caramel ink too. :)
Tee-hee -- Isn't that sentiment just perfect???  As I mentioned, you can find this fun mix-n-match sentiment on the Owly Hoo Stamp Art Sentiment Set...  I've been featuring this set ALL week long for the Getting Cricky Preview Week (Did you miss Sunday's snowman card? Or Monday's GROOVY giraffe and "shag pillow" cards?  Or how about yesterday's Valentine Favor Boxes???  I hope you'll stop over and check all of those out!!  If you find you can't go on without this set for one more day, please make this set YOURS by clicking here OR by clicking on the image below...  AND...

Especially like the embossing on background. Did not see a Tuesday post for this on your site so when you mentioned Valentine boxes I wanted to let you know that I do not see that post.

Awww, what an absolutely adorable card, Amy!! I love that sweet birdie!! She is so chic and stylish!! The embossing is fabulous and I love, love the ribbon!! Another awesome card, as always, my super-talented and creative friend!! And I only felt slightly less unimaginative today at your mention of not using an owl...I didn't today :D Okay, okay, I did yesterday. Sigh, yes, I made two owl projects. But I just got Hoot n Holler and was dying to use it :P

The little bird is super cute. I have decided I need a cuttlebug now so I can do all the cool embossing. I am so jealous.
