Birthday Bonanza Critters in a Cubby Hole + How-To PDF

Hellllllooooooo Monday, friends!  I love Mondays for their fresh starts and the sense of excited anticipation they bring me.  Others feel that way about Fridays (my husband).  WHATEVER your favorite day is, I know you're going to love what I'm sharing today!  The card below was very popular with people!

The thing is, I copied it from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  Page 32, near the bottom.  It's the Birthday Bonanza Suite.  The layout caught my eye, with those adorable animals poking their sweet selves out of little cubby holes.

 I adapted it to what I had and I've made a How-To for you to pin or print (because I know you want to make this)!  It's at the end of this post.

Order the Birthday Bonanza Suite here!


This card has already been mailed out and I think my 7-year-old niece will really enjoy seeing it in her mailbox.  I spent an hour yesterday stamping envelopes and writing messages in a stack of cards to mail out today.  It's so fun creating the beauties, but even more heartwarming and enjoyable is hearing back from those who receive them.  It's a great reinforcer that our words and actions matter.  The added benefit of a card is that it can be looked at over and over, as many times as the recipient needs a paper hug.
