Celebrating Birthdays.

     Today is the birthday of two of my dear friends.  What are the odds that a husband and wife team share the same day?  Well, such is the story of Carol L., and her hubby Butch!  Carol is not only a IRL friend, but also a stamping buddy and blogging friend.

     Here is the card that I made for Carol, and the funny thing is that she saw it laying on my work space and told me she loved it.  I had cased it from a card I saw on Pinterest.  It uses Unity and SU! stamps, with an assortment of inks and punches.  The ribbon I used is one of my very favorites.  I also used the ever popular Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder and an iridescent gem..

     The card for Butch is a sponged scenic background, with a stamped giraffe (unknown).  I framed the giraffe with a tall grass die from Sweet n' Sassy die.  My sentiment is from SU!.  Again it is an assortment of inks.

     I hope they both have a wonderful day!  If you have a sec, please stop over and wish them a happy day!  Thank you for stopping around.

     I would like to enter these over at Pixie's Snippets Playground, where the challenge is always to use up our bits!

Two lovely cards. The giraffe one is really amazing with all that inking.

Two fantastic cards, I have to say the first is my favourite but your inky background in the second is brilliant.
