Welcome to my stop on the Birthday Hop! Kris has created 6 new Birthday themed Critter Sets, plus 2 "KD-Kits" which not only have colored images but also digi papers, journal cards, photo frames, brads, etc - a great value, so be sure to check those out in the store! 

I've created a few cards using the "Birthday Bear and Birthday Bash KD kit" digi set.

The first one was kept simple for a 9-year-old boy's birthday.  I just love this little bear,
and I used some Cuttlebug folders (Numbers and Happy Birthday) to emboss the 
blue layers a bit to fit the occasion.  The birthday candles can be untied and used
on his birthday cake/cupcake too.

On the inside, I used the sweet circle sentiment, colored slightly with Copics 
and just a basic layer with the Labels One SB's die and a great go-to Happy Birthday stamp
that I have had for years from SugarLoaf, Inc (c) 2002.


This is so pretty in pink ... I used the Birthday Bear again (but this time in pink), cut it out with my large scalloped circles SB die, placed it on a paper doily, added another layer of Pretty in Pink
Stampin Up cardstock on top of some BasicGrey pink paper I had left over from a paper pack.  The circle sentiment this time was colored slightly with my Copics and layered on the front
(popped up a bit for dimension).



This sweet puppy dog would be sure to cheer anyone up on their birthday, even an old girl like me ;)  The image was cut out with SB circles dies, popped up on a scalloped circle made with BasicGrey red paper with polka dots from the JuneBug collection that I felt matched her bow perfectly, and then I added a few more presents and confetti from this same digi set to seal the Happy Birthday deal :)



Your next stop on this birthday hop to visit is Helen's blog!  
You will love her creations.
Be sure to stop by and give her a "little love."

Have a great time!! :)

ahhhhh soooo cute! Love how you have used actual candles as the embellishment for the 1st card! I'll have to remember this. And how you have transformed a more masculine care using the same digi into a cute girly card!
