Two More Birthdays!

It has been nice having a good chunk of the day to be creative.  I have all of my supplies spread out everywhere and my desk really looks more like a big mess rather than a place to make cards.  I made two more birthday cards today, one is a bit more retro using PTI's Ad Sense stamps and dies and the second using the By the Numbers dies.   I love the My Minds Eye paper pad, most of the papers already have a retro feel to them and they pair very well with the Ad Sense stamps.  Thanks again for taking a peek!

The first card it also one for the Card Patterns Sketch #133...I made the card but did not realize that I could use it for this callenge until one of my PTI forum friends pointed it out...too much fun. I love making cards for challenges, makes me think outside the box a bit more.

  1. Oh, these are both ever so cute. Love how you used the patterned paper. I tend to buy it and not use it. I'm pinning these cards, too, for CASEing. That paper does have a retro feel to it--looks great on those cards. And I love the colors--could work for either gender.

  2. THESE are WONDERFUL! LOVE your use of Card Patterns composition - MEOW! Thanks for sharing this with us!
