Now for my Surprise Birthday Project:

Emily loves teal so I wanted to be sure her card had lots of teal on it!
I was going through my cartirdge images and when I came across this hippo on the Cricut Cart "Birthday Bash" I knew I had to use her!!

I mean how cute is this sentiment!! Adorable!! And for even more fun I added an Action Wobble to my hippo so she dances all over the card!
Happy Birthday Emily!! I hope you were surprised and that we made your birthday super, like you!! HUGS!!!
I will be entering this card in the Action Wobble Make it Sparkle Challenge. My ribbon, bling, and cheery all sparkle!!

Thank you for joining us now head on to the next celebration stop, the super creative Suzanne!!
