Would I Eat Your Birthday Chocolate?

I am sorry I haven't been posting much lately, but with the busy Christmas season, I have neglected my blog!  And to be honest, I have not been in my craft room much in the past month or so.  But, I do have a few cards to share, and one of those is this cute M&M card I made for a co-worker's birthday.  I was inspired by a similar card I had seen on Pinterest and on the Cricut message boards.  Here are the details:

Size:  5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Card Stock:  Bazzill
Patterned Papers:  Recollections
M&M:  For the body, I used my George Cricut cartridge to cut the circle at 3".  The feet are a 2" circle cut in half.  The eye brows are an apostrophe cut from that same cartridge at 3". The arms and legs are strips of paper that are approximately 1/4" wide (I failed to write down their width.)  The hands are cut from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge at 1 1/4".  The eyes and mouth were cut using punches.    The "m" was cut using the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge at approximately 3/4".  (This is another cut I forgot to write down.)  I used a little chalk to add the cheeks and chocolate to his face.
Roses:  Recollections
Fancy corner:  Spellbinders die "Fleur De Lis" motifs
Sentiment:  Computer generated and then punched with circle punches and scalloped circle punches.
On the inside, I added a sentiment to the effect of, "Hmmm . . . I guess I would!  Happy Birthday Anyway!"

I hope you are inspired.  If you take the time to comment, thank you so much.
