Hey Chickie! Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday everyone!! Hope ya'll had a great week and looking forward to an awesome weekend.
I have the greatest honor of being the one to present you with a Daily Project for Exploring Cricut today.
I needed a birthday card for one of the ladies I work with. Some of the customers that shop in the store where we work think we are sisters. Not that we look that much alike, but we are built the same, have short brown hair and wear glasses. Guess it's enough. So I call her 'Sis' a lot. I pulled out my Create A Critter 2 and Elegant Edges cartridges to make this card. I found this cute little 'chickie' on page 44 of the CAC2 cart and thought she would be just perfect. I cut her and her layers at 3.25 inches. I wanted something to mount her on so I cut this shape from page 45 of the EE cart. I cut the oblong shift and it's shadow. Using my Gypsy Girl, I hid the cutout of her eye so I could use a brown faux pearl instead.  The sentiment on the front is from the Farmyard Funnies stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.

The inside sentiment is a wooden stamp from Stampabilities that I got at Hobby Lobby. I finished off my card with some bling and a flower from Recollections (Michaels). Sure hope ya'll like my card!!
I also hope that ya'll have been checking out the daily projects that my DT Sisters and Brother have been presenting each day. If not, you are missing out on some awesomeness for sure!!!
And if you have already entered our current challenge at Exploring Cricut, get busy and create something to enter!! You have until 10pm, EST, tonight to link a new project with the theme "Baby It's Cold Outside". Use a cricut cut and make a card, layout or papercraft with anything doing with snow and winter.
Have a fantastic weekend!!! :)
