For that special person who's turning 50!

Someone in my family is turning 50 this weekend!  Not to name any names....but it's my SISTER!   So of course I have to tease her a bit (and since I'm already over the 50 mark, there's no worry of retaliation).  I thought this "old buzzard" gift bag would be a perfect way to present her birthday present, and it also fits with the Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week of using a label shape on your project.

The buzzard is from the "Life's a Party" cartridge, cut at 5.5".  The branch was cut at 3.5" from Create a Critter, and the background shape is from "Elegant Edges", cut at 7.5".   The little talk bubble is from George, cut at 3", with a computer generated sentiment.  (and even though I might be a little mean about her turning 50, I did get her a nice birthday present, so I'm too awful a sister, LOL)
