A Bear-y Happy Birthday!

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope this post finds you well as I thought I would share with you a card for a dear friends birthday on Friday!  I must say that this card was quite the challenge-- I am afraid my Silhouette Cameo and I am not on speaking terms right now and I finally had to break my Cricut Explore out of hiding (I picked it up on Black Friday... stood outside and almost froze my toes :)) But anyway... it's been quite the learning curve for me.  While I do adore how the Explore cuts like buttah--seriously the cutting is amazing the format vs the Cameo is quite different!  Let's just say I have a ways to go :)  I am also thinking this cutie up with my friends over at Pretty Cute Stamps--they are having a challenge this month and it's all about birthdays!

Together like PB and J!

Happy Saturday my crafty friends!  Wanted to share a cute little card I created to send as an anniversary card-- I think it turned out super cute :)  Hope you enjoy it!  The sentiments are from Jaded Blossom... I did a little surgery on one of the stamps to make it say "You" instead of "We."  the fonts don't match but still turned out cute :)

Those little faces on the PB and J crack me up!!!
