CAS(E) this Sketch and Seize the Birthday

Hello again...I have 2 more cards to share for the day. My first card is for this week's Seize the Birthday #20 and it is my first time playing along with them.  They have some fabulous sketches every other week and thought it would be a good time to play along.  Stacey from Stacey's Stamping Stage is also celebrating her birthday and she has an amazing party on her blog that you can play along and win some wonderful goodies! 
I will be entering this card in this week's SSS Anything Goes challenge too.  

My second card is one more for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #34 and I decided to pull out a set that I have not used in some time, On the Farm from PTI. I have to say that this is one of my favorite sets from PTI. Thank you so much for stopping by to peek at my cards....have a great holiday week!

  1. Love love love them both. Fabulous idea to use patterned paper for the background in your seize the birthday. And, that sentiment looks great in the circle. And, oh, you have reminded me of how much I love that Farm set, and how I have neglected it. I think those animals are perfect all stacked up like that.

  2. I just love how productive and creative you've been, Kim! I also love all those animals stacked on top of each other! It really tickles my funny bone. You rocked the STB sketch with your sunny, summery, circley BC!!

  3. Now, that is one CUTE card, Kim! love the animals all stacked up:) Thanks so much for celebrating with me at the Birthday Linky Party!

  4. Those stacked animals make the most adorable card--perfect colors too! And your birthday card is so bright & cheery. Love the yellow!

  5. 2 great cards, Kim! Really love the second one!

  6. Wow, do I love the colors on that first card! That sentiment too! You sure gave that second card a total farm feeling with the red checks and the ribbon. It feels like the county fair!

  7. I keep looking at the On the Farm set and thinking I wouldn't use it very much and then I see a card like this - love the stacked animals!

  8. Love your cards as always Kim. The background paper on your first card is so fun and I love the farm animals all stacked up brilliant!

  9. What great cards Kim...
    LOVE the colorful paper on the 1st one...
    just makes that card so much fun!
    And I do love On the Farm...
    though I'm scared of every animal pictured...
    and always love what you do with it!
    Another fabulous card and fits the sketch perfectly! :)

  10. Great cards! Wonderful colors and design! Thanks for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!

  11. Love the delightfully dotty dp on your first card, Kim ... the second, with the stacked animals has a fabulously french farm feel to it with it's checked 'table cloth' and silhouetted cockerell! Anita :)

  12. Two fabulous cards, Kim! I love the bright celebration on the first card. Those farm animals on your second card always make me smile, and your card is so beautifully designed!

  13. What a charming stack of animals - just perfect with the checked background and cute little banner! (I've managed to go a long time without owning that set, but I think you have pushed me over the edge!)

  14. awesome cards :) love the birthday sentiment!!! Thanks for joining us on Seize the Birthday
