CASE Study #148, Color Throwdown #249 and Seize the Birthday #20

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July...mine was nice and quiet.  Spent the day crafting and watching movies with my family, Despicable Me and Brave, both very good.  Today we went to see Despicable Me 2, it is just as good as the first movie and lunch out at California Pizza Kitchen, so much fun.  
My first card is a belated birthday card for sweet Darnell, I felt so bad that I forgot to send her a birthday I have my card ready to pop in the mail tomorrow.  I am entering Darnell's card in two challenges, Seize the Birthday and Color Throwdown and you still have time to play along.


My next card is for this week's CASE Study and my sweet friend Tracey from In My Creative Opinion is their guest designer this month.  The inspiration card for this week is just beautiful and you still have plenty of time to play along, so why not join in the fun. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and peek at my cards...have a wonderful weekend!
