“You Say It’s Your Birthday” Blog Hop

Welcome to the “You Say It’s Your Birthday Blog Hop.  I am pleased to be a part of this fun and happy event! You should have arrived here from Heather’s blog.  If not, you can start hopping at Erika’s blog.  Erika, over at Cricut Love, is our host for this hop and she’s done a wonderful job!  We have some great sponsors and Erika has some awesome giveaways, so be sure to check our her post for all the details. 
Erika’s daughter, Ashley, is having a birthday and that’s what we’re celebrating!  She and Ashley are HUGE Beatles fans, so we were asked to make a project inspired by one of their songs.  I am not familiar with a lot of their songs {{{GASP…I know!}}}, so I just looked through some of the titles and chose one.  I chose Strawberry Fields Forever as I’m sure you can tell from my pics!  I hope Ashley loves her card and has a wonderful birthday. 
I used Smiley Cards for the base and the oval shaped mats and Simply Charmed for the strawberry.  I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy to take the face off the strawberry.  The strawberry was embossed using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and then I inked the dots with some red chalk ink.

Your next stop on the hop is Melin @  Cooking with Cricut.  Head over there for more fun!
