High Flying Birthday!

June 10th is a busy day for Birthdays!  It seems that several folks I know, plus several more that they know, are celebrating today!  Happy Birthday, one and all! 
Today is grandson Porter's third birthday, and he wants an AIRPLANE birthday party!  Mom has gotten a Cricut cartridge with an airplane, and is busy creating all sorts of cute themed decorations. 
This plane is from the Cricut New Arrivals cartridge.  The stitched "contrail" is inspired by one of you!
Unfortunately, for the life of me, I can't find it tonight, so I can give you proper credit!  I thought I knew who it was, and where to go get your great tutorial, so I could show off your delightful card, and the cheerful green "Happy".... and you showed us how to use your word processing program to choose the best font to create a template, and then poke the holes to make it easy to do... Somebody help me out here, and leave me the info, so I can give credit where credit is due!
EDITED:  Our talented friend, Lauren Bergold of "All the GOOD Blog Names Were Taken" and "Jingle Belles" was the artist that created the tutorial!  Please head over and check it out.  You won't be disappointed!

This is the inside of the card, and when you're three, colorful and easy to count is best... and more single dollar bills are better than less bigger denominations!

Today is also my friend Court Lee's birthday!  Her favorite color is olive green, and this is the first I've used of my new DCWV Lemon Flower paper stack.  Yummy!  I fussy cut the lower right flower and popped up several layers, plus some additional Stickles to add even more bling to the razzle dazzle.  Using a Versamark pen to outline the Spellbinders die while the paper was still in it, made it very easy to get this silver heat embossed inner frame.
Happy birthday, HoneyBee Court!

Working on some publication submissions this weekend, and getting ready for a Cricut Swarm, so my mojo is working in overdrive!  It feels good....
I hope you are feeling creative, too.
See you on Monday, if not before!
