Angry Birds Birthday Card (using the Cricut)

Get ready for a really long post!!!!
 Oh boy did I ever have a fun time making this card.  I searched all over the net for something cute and did I ever find it!  This card originated from 2 Stampin' Up posts that I found.  Unfortunately, I do not own Stampin' Up stuff, so I used their ideas and created an Excel spreadsheet so I would always have what I needed using George and Basic Shapes and Plantin Schoolbook. 
The first thing I found was how to make the pigs.  That came from Valita's Fresh Folds.  She is an amazingly talented woman with lots of great ideas that she shares.
 The next thing I found was the card from Stampin with Niki.  Another amazingly talented woman.
 I cut the banner out of Christmas Cheer at 1" and wrote Happy Birthday.  The grass I just cut with scissors, later realizing that I could have cut a border off of George.  Oh well, still came out cute.  I did pop up a blue bird, the yellow bird, the red bird and the helmet pig.
I love the way this card turned out, just look at the smile on his face!

Tomorrow I will post the recipe for all shapes and sizes :)
