Have a Monster of a Birthday!

Happy Friday!
This is the birthday card I made for my brother, his birthday was yesterday!  Happy Birthday little brother!  I know Mini Monsters and Freshly Picked are not a new Cricut cartridges, but they are new to me! I just got mine from Hallmark Scrapbook at an EXCELLENT price. Check them out HERE! Oh and guess what else you can find at Hallmark Scrapbook right now? You can purchase the George cartridge for $48.99 and get the baby Cricut for FREE! Yeah...really! You can start your Christmas shopping early! Tell them I sent you!
I used Mini Monsters (MM) and Freshly Picked (FP) to make my brother's card.  Obviously the four legged monster is from MM and the sign is from FP.  The letters on the sign are from Cuttin' Up.
I created the pennant banner and "cloud" freehand.  The "sun" was created by using my starburst Nestie, then trimming it down to fit in the corner.  The "grass" was created by just cutting small strips into the striped paper and then bending it over a bit.
Those little monsters are hilarious and there are bunches of them for Halloween, so be watching for them to appear at a blog near you soon!
Thanks for stopping in today, please do come again really soon.  Until then, have a lovely day and an awesome weekend!  HUGS! :)

Super cute Dee Dee. You did a great job on the cloud and banner. I understand you will be with The Cutting Cafe this term...I know you'll have a lot of fun with Regina's files...I can't wait to see what you do with her new files, and the older ones too.
