Birthday Card Using CTMH Laughing Lola Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi to everyone in Blogland!  I hope everyone is having a good time and making time to create!  I feel like a part of me is missing if I am not creating every few days.  I woke up with another headache; but decided to ride my bike to enjoy the beautiful Southern CA weather.  It made me dizzy; but it was worth it just getting outside for a while.
I have created my 3rd card of the year; so I am trying to make up for lost time.  LOL!  I didn't create for several weeks due to the holidays.  I am using another FREE digi that you can find at Lacy Sunshine.  You will receive a free digi each time you enter their challenge and use one of their digi stamps.  I love these adorable stamps.  Who wouldn't want to try them.  Just click on the link above and follow the directions for getting your free digi stamp each challenge.  If you don't own one of their sweet images; you will have to purchase the first one and then you will be able to get a new one every two weeks.  How fabulous is that! 
I used a Mojo Monday sketch to create this.  I just turned it around a little.  See below.  I am using the one featured on this challenge; which is "Rory Love".  I thought she was so cute; that I had to use this one.  She costs only $2.00 today; but that may be for just another day.  You will have to check the Lacy Sunshine Stamp Website to view all of the fabulous digi stamps.
