Happy Birthday Alma!

It's Alma'a birthday! Happy Birthday, I wish you the best of everything. For those of you who don't know who Alma is (if you're reading this you probably do know but just in case) you need to go visit The Cat's Pajama. Alma is the head kitty and beloved to those of us addicted to Sprinkles the cat, the Vespa driving bunny, these lovable penguins (I think they're really diabolical, yet still lovable, like the ones in the movie Madagascar) PJ the bear and a doggie (does he have a name?). I love them all and try to participate in the weekly challenge. When I saw this week's challenge to "get wood" I knew exactly what I was going to use. I've had these little wooden discs for ages. I just wasn't sure which letters I had left or how may would fit comfortably on a card front. Do you think "tequila" works? I'll let Alma decide.
The penquins are from the "Hola! Tequila!" stamp set. There are several other images and sentiments in the set. I used the two of the smaller stamps to make my own dp, which makes it work perfectly. I happened to have a cactus charm in my stash but if I didn't I would have made a nice little charm with this stamp.
So here's the deets:
Stamps - the Cat's Pajamas "Hola! Tequila!"
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black; Close To My Heart Ocean, Olive and Desert Sand
Paper -Stampin' Up cs Bermuda Bay and Green Galore
Miscellaneous - Cat's Pajamas linen twine; May's ribbon; cactus charm; wood letter discs (wish I knew who made them - they are old); MFT spring collection button; stickles; copics, Creative Memories cutting system
Here's the challenges:
The Cat's Pajamas - TCPTUES111 get wood
The Pink Elephant TPE68 - make orange the focal color (check out that yummy ribbon)
Scrapmaster's Paradise SPCC#49 - Bermuda Bay, Green Galore and Only Orange

Thanks for visiting, if you have a chance go wish Alma a Happy Birthday, and don't forget to click the pink ribbon before you leave, it's good karma.
