Happy Birthday Grandma

My Grandmother celebrated her 95th birthday yesterday.  Not sure I will or even want to live as long but she just moved from her own home to an assisted living facility over the weekend.  She was lucky enough to find a place that lets her keep her dog.
This is the card I made for her. I love the cheerful spring colors.

Shabby Chic Birthday Card

 This is my DT project for Aud Sentiments. 
We are sponsored by My Artistic Adventure
You can find her fabulous digital supplies on  Etsy.  I used her Pink Shabby Thank You/Birthday card sheet.  It included several sentiments, flowers, tag options and the papers.  A fabulous deal.  I added the bird cage from the Songbird Cricut cartridge.  I cut it out several times for depth and then used lots of shabby white embossing enamel.

Our Challenge theme is Bingo this time.  You can use any row or column for your project plus an appropriate sentiment.  I used the column on the right for my card.

Here is the inside of my card.  As you can see, there were plenty of items to use from this digital sheet to decorate the inside of the card as well.

Entered in the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts: Lots of layers
Dream it Up: Frilly and Fabulous
Scrap Craft Inspiration: birthday
Southern Girls: Girly
4 Crafty Chicks: Sketch

Have A Yummy Birthday

I made this card for a friend.  I love how the Magnolia stamps pair up perfectly with the die cuts from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge.  I used a little snow tex for the frosting coming out of the piping bag.  After it dried, I colored it lightly with my copics to match the color on the cake.  The Martha Stewart Drippy Goo border punch and some trim that looks like piped frosting were some great additions to this card.  I love the way it turned out.

Stamps: Piping Tilda and Chef Tilda from magnolia stamps
Party hat: Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge
Cake and Stand: Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge
Spellbinders dies

21st Birthday

My oldest son just turned 21 a few days ago.  Where have those years gone?  I had a hard time trying to decide what kind of card to make him.  I didn't like the idea of making the card focused on drinking, even though he did enjoy his first "legal" drinks.  I found this sketch at Pals Paper Arts and decided to keep it would work perfect.  Nice and simple.

Project details:
Stars: George cricut cartridge cut at 3 and 2.5 inces
21: Base Camp cricut cartridge cut at 2 inches
