...and with May comes lots of birthdays.. So, I have two completed cards to share with you.. Both of them I just love and enjoyed making!

This first one is for Papa Don
...and also for TLC166.. Two-way open.. I am so excited that I actually made a "man-card".. hooray! This is for Papa Don... he is celebrating his birthday this weekend.. and what better gift than a handcrafted card with a gift card holder on the front. That's right.. I love the gift card holders.. but they are so small, so I just mounted mine onto a card front.. and that way the kids have the inside to sign (since they are K and 1st and write REALLY BIG!) And the entire thing was made from scraps.. I didn't even use the first full sheet of anything.. yep, I have a huge scrap pile.. need to work on that!

Additional Info

Stamps: birthday whimsey
Paper: very vanilla, river rock, not quite navy, always artichoke, non-SU! dp

Here is the next one...

I just LOVE this image!! It take me forevah to color it.. but in the end, it is sooo worth the effort.. even if I don't have any copics *sigh*pout*.. I needed a birthday card and loved the Limited Supply Challenge for today, which was to use circles.. so, there are lots of circles and dot on my card.... The sentiment is computer generated - in a circle - woo hoo!! and, I just had to post the inside.. that is the best part!Thanks for looking and have a Happy Friday!

Stamps: art impressions birthday gang
Paper: whisper white, basic black, pink passion, various dp
Ink: jet black stazon
Accessories: SU! markers, various circle punches and cutters, brads, corner rounder

Oh... and I wanted to also share this..

My upline had a class showing her ladies how to makes these fun and funky name frames.. I loved it so much, I tried my hand at it! How easy and fun, especially with the cutie-pie dp.. and I know.. I should have some bees on it.. I may go back and add some.. thanks Tabitha for pointing that out to me *wink*....

Stamps: alphabet
Paper: whisper white, purely pomegranate, wild wasabi, cutie pie dp
Ink: purely pomegranate

So, I can't take credit for this.. I actually cased it from the Stampin' Success magazine that demos get every month.. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make one for my mother (who has everything, but this!) Next came the weekly challenge from Fran for the DDC that I participate in with a couple of fabulous stampers.. and the challenge was to use a bird or other animal on a mother's day card.. we this is not a card so I hope I'm not disqualified.. btw.. the MOM is computer-generated as I don't have an alphabet set.. crazy right?! what demo doesn't own at least one of those!
