Happy Bee'Day!

First I would like to thank the Anything Goes Challenge Blog for being (randomly or not :) ) chosen as a TOP 5!! You can see the button on the right!

One of the other students at my office had her birthday yesterday. She took the last 2 days off because she also graduates tomorrow. So I thought it would be fun to have people leave her birthday cards on her desk so she can come back to them on Monday! And of course, I made mine!!
I got a new cartridge yesterday so I thought it would be fun to use it! It might be slightly juvenile for a 24 year old doctoral student, but I think she'll laugh so it's worth it!
(Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, its Create a Critter!!)

The Bee and his hat are from Create a Critter and The Happy Bee'Day is Story Book. I used Gelly Roll Glaze gel pens for his flight path and emphasizing BEE. 

I mentioned a few posts ago I was trying to come up with ideas for a 4 year olds birthday invites to a place thats bouncy, gymnastic like, indoor playground. Well the place is called Jumpin' Jungle. I think the monkey on Create a Critter might just be the perfect image to base the invite around. What do you think???
