It's an Elmo birthday!!!!

I designed and created this card for my friend's son, Jared!!!

Here are some close-ups of "Elmo", the card inside and the label I made for the back of the card:

One thing that I used for this card is my take on an "Action Wobble"!  I made mine using some fun foam circles and some beading wire.  Here is a video of Elmo dancing:

I designed and cut  the little red t-shirt for Elmo and covered it with fluff and cut the letter "H" (for Huskers...Nebraska, that is!), all using my Craft Robo and my Pazzles Inspiration Studio Pro software.  I cut all of the panels for the card using my Pazzles Inspiration.  I decided to use "googly eyes" on the "Elmo" paper piecing.  A another really good friend of mine gifted me with the Tim Holtz Sizzix "Bricked and Woodgrain" embossing folders and this is the first time I've used them!  Thanks Sue!  I also designed the "Jared You Rock!" using my PI Studio Pro software,  and the "Cooper Black".....the "Happy Birthday" is a Silhouette Studio file and both were cut using my Craft Robo.

Thanks for stopping by to visit!  I've been very busy with company and a camping trip this Summer, but now I'm hoping to get back to creating craft projects, so please come back!!!
