Happy Birthday!

Good day to all my bloggie friends. I have missed you ALL so much!! 
Thank you to those have reached out to me just to see how I am doing. I really appreciate it as well as love you from the bottom of my humble heart.
I started the year with a little cold which lead to a nose & throat infection as well as high fever 
which would not go away. I am feeling much better and recuperating my strength. 
 I started to play with my crafty new tools which I received during Christmas.
Guess what William got me for Christmas?
A Cricut Explore!!  Yiippee!!
I am starting my 1st 2015 project with 2 Birthday Shaker Cards.
I am having so much fun and I love the fact that I can still use my cartridges. 
I used the print & cut feature on both cupcakes.
You know how much I love cupcakes..LOL!
For the base of my shaker cards I used the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set by My Creative Time, which I purchased with a g.c. that I had won over at MCT for the month of Nov. 
Thanks Miss Emma! You are Awesome!
To cut out the word "Happy" on both shaker cards, I used the Peel & Stick Glitter Foam 
by Foam Crafts and stamped birthday. Using the glitter foam was super fun! 
For the circle shape I used the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies By MCT and added colorful sequins.
The fun birthday paper are from my scraps and on each of my cards I added some fun skittles from my bloggie friend Carri.


P.S. I will be visiting all of you soon and leaving bloggie love...
