Happy Birthday 2 u card made using the Teddy Bear on Parade and Cricut Craft Room basics cartridges.

Hello, friends!

Can you believe it is already April 1st? This year is just flying by!

Well, today is Monday and the 1st of the month, so I have a project for the Bitten By the Bug challenge AND I have the new April specials! This post is jammed packed, so lets begin!

Today's project is made using the Teddy Bear on Parade cartridge along with Cricut Craft Room basics. This week's challenge was to make something with a clown from any of the cartridges. Well, there are a lot of cute clowns, but this is definitely one of the cutest!

I used the Joyful Birthday stamp set for the sentiment.
