3 Birthday Cards

I really like this paper! It's from the Garden Party slab by DCWV. Can you see the sparkles? Love the vibrant colors!

Popped up the center piece (a great $1 stamp find!) for depth & added glitter & gems:
I decided to use some scrap CTMH paper for this card. Classic colors for a classic image, I think! I got this stamp from the dollar bin as well:

Now for something on the more masculine side:

Papers & ink from CTMH; Stamp from Savoir Faire

Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather that is finally here! I was beginning to wonder if we were going to have a summer this year or not. At least things are nice and green now with all the rain we've been getting ~ there is always a silver lining, right!

Father's Day & Birthday Cards

A couple Father's Day Cards to post today. This one will be going to my DH's dad:
And this one will go to my dad cuz he's into cars:

I liked that paper so much that I made my brother's birthday card with it, too! Added some blue as a contrast color:
The paper is 2-sided, so I will be adding the sentiment on a different piece of cardstock on the inside.
I have 2 more birthday's coming up this month...I think...maybe more. So will be posting again soon!

EEEK! There's A Mouse in the House!!!!

But these mice won't tear up your paper and make a mess in your house!  Aren't these stamps the cutest!  This card is for my daughter's birthday - she love critters!  The inside of the card says, "You make life fun!" - which she does!

This card is for my niece's birthday, who was born 2 days before my daughter!  She loves bright colors and polka dots....this card just about covers both!
