Happy Birthday

We had 2 birthdays in the family this week. So, I made cards for my sister-in-law and nephew. I worked long and hard in a labor of love. Then I made a batch of cookies - took all evening. I found a metal basket to match the watermelon girl card.

So I carefully packed it all up in a box and shipped it via Priority Mail so that it would get there in a timely manner. Unfortunately, most of the box contents didn't make it there. The box had been taped all around. The cookies and both cards were missing! So, the pictures are posted here for all - including the two they were made for...... Enjoy! At least they can see what they are missing.....

Playin' with Pazzles

My neighbor was working on a wedding scrapbook and could not find a reception title. So, she wandered over (with paper in hand :) and requested I make one for her. The couple was married in Hawaii and their colors were pink and orange. Since I'm always looking for an 'excuse' to put my Pazzles Inspiration to use - I gladly accepted the challenge.

Since I already had my Pazzles out I figured I'd put together a birthday card for my friend Mikey. His birthday was in a couple of weeks. So, I might as well get it done too!

The background behind the text and two of the balloons on the birthday card are a light green. The camera just didn't "see" it that way.

I saved both of the files so if you would like to have either of them let me know in your comment. I'd be happy to email them to you. Thank you Klo and the Pazzles Craftroom Tutorials for teaching me how to do these!
