365 Cards Day 172: ABC's and 123's

365 Cards: Create a card with alphabet stickers and include at least one number. Don't have alpha stickers? If you have a stamp set with individual letters and numbers, that qualifies as well.
ABC: B is for Buttons
Pile it On: Oh Boy! MASCULINE (for man or boy)

I want to thank Carolyn at Scrappin is My Thing for inspiring me to use my Cricut Home Decor cart....as I have had it for about 8 weeks and have yet to use it!! Bad me!!

Pam said stickers and so i dug out my xyron sticker maker and cut out my number and letter from Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cart @ 1" and made them stickers!! How's that for cheating Gloria? *wink*

Paper is K&co Lemon Drop, buttons are Sizix die cut, bird is cut from Cricut Home Decor @ 4", shadow @4",wing is popped, k&co bling for eye, and.... hold on to your hats..........Platinum STICKLES used to perk him up a wee bit!! They don't show up well but they are on his tail and wing. Thanks Shelly for giving me pointers on how to use the buggers and not look like a preschooler :)

holy cow!!! LOVE the bird!

lol, i'm a huge stickles fan, i usually end up looking like the glitter fairy sneezed on me when i use them though, i start out with just a little but then i keep adding and adding until my project has died and all that's left is stickles lol
(they're like pringles, once you pop - you can't stop lol)

Rose, love your card and good for you for pulling out that cricut. I have had mine over a year and have used it 3 times. I still have two cartridges besides the one that came with it that have not been used. My Bad or what.
