My Pink Stamper Challange

My Pink Stamper does these fun challenges, hrm I thought Why not?
Since I have been out of work I have been sitting around staring at my Cricut which was my early Christmas present, with the promise of making everyone Christmas cards…. And I got the supplies too….
So in a months span I have purchased or been giving a hand full of cartridges, a Cricut Expression, a cuttle bug (which btw was not easy to find ne more) a gypsy which was not easy to find either (and I live in a city and with in 2 miles there is a scrap booking store (but it just went out of business but I got a lot of amazing paper for really cheep 50 percent off was sort of worth it but not at the same time since its gone.) a micheals and a joanns and a craft warehouse.
Although if you have a gypsy or just got one, do not try to update it on a computer with the anti virus software called Kaspersky , it is an amazing anti virus but it is a Russian brand so trying to call them not so easy so far. And after sitting on the phone with Provo craft help support, she was soo nice and I appreciate her trying to help me but she couldn’t figure out. So after sitting trying to update it for 2 days I figured I’d try my other computer with MacAfee .. And it worked hurray … I was so stoked and since then wow I am a crafting fool. .. But any way got a little off topic. Hehe I do that some times.
I decided to try for this because it doesn’t hurt to try and if I make a birthday card I can then send it to someone. A lot of birthdays coming up and hey I have to make a new one for this ..
My recipe
Kraft edge Scissors
A cheep edge scissor I’m not really sure of the shape name it’s the one around the yellow Happy Birthday
This amazing double sided paper from Cosmo Cricut that I got for half off (Which I used both sides )
Plain cardstock in tan, bright pink, bright yellow and bright green.
Cricut lite cartridge four legged friend. And I used the hamster my gypsy says his dimensions are 3.96 x4.18
Zig two way glue pen for the small pieces
And tomboy mono adhesive
The Happy Birthday was stamped using Martha Stweart glue pad and fine glitter in a reddish brown,
I think the stamp set was from a friskers set.
The whole card is A2 sized.
And its it super cute and girly
I used a stamp inside that says the more birthdays u have the longer u will live

But I accidentally stamped it upside down hehe it was just a dollar bin find stamp.
