Birthday Cards....

I made 2 more birthday cards - for my sisters 50th birthday and my niece's birthday. They both share the same birthday - pretty cool eh? Not sure I'd want to be giving birth on MY birthday but hey....what a gift!!!!! I got to hang out with them on their actual birthday! - we went to Jubilations, which is a dinner theater place. It was really fun! There were 6 of us!

For my sisters card, I used Herbert Turtle Birthday Set. It comes with Herbert with a cake on his back or a cupcake, plus all the numbers and balloons and stuff! I couldn't decide on just one, so I had to have it all!!! LOL Thankfully Karen has a nice little pack deal for ya!!! I had to figure out how to get the #s on his cupcake using Microsoft Word because I don't have a fancy PhotoShop program...and I did it!!! I was SO proud of myself!!!!!

I am entering this card into the ANIMAL MAGIC challenge at Karen's Doodles UK this week!!! I think Herbert qualifies!!!!!! Wish me luck!!!!

For my niece's card, I used Kiki La Rue with her puppy (you can get her at Simon Says Stamp), since Carla just got a puppy for her birthday from her fiancee! Lola is a Puggle....and very very cute!!!! Carla's favourite colours are pink and brown, so I decided to go with those for her card!! The sentiments used on both cards are from "Simply the best Sentiments" from Simon Says Stamp!

Thanks for popping by today! Have a great week!!!
