Celebrate Birthdays

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a productive and fun weekend, I know I did!! I got so much accomplished for my Halloween party on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it :)

I have a couple simple birthday cards to share with you today.

The first is a masculine card for Operation Write Home, using their sketch # 164.

I simply flipped it on its side and pulled out some new papers I got from The Paper Loft.

Supplies used: card stock - gray, green; patterned paper - Geese in Huckleberry pond by The Paper Loft; brads - Making Memories; sentiment sticker - Metal Captions by Mrs. Grossmans; Pop Dots.

The second birthday card is using a pretty stamp set by Unity called True Wishes. I stamped the dandelion heads in yellow and then added some Clear Dazzle glue by Hero Arts.

Supplies used: card stock - grey, white; patterned paper - Persevere in Be(you)tiful by Authentique; stamps - True Wishes by Unity, and Happy Birthday sentiment stamp from my stash; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento, YoYo Yellow by Stampin' Up; Clear Dazzle Glue by Hero Arts; ribbon - Doodlebug; embossing folder - James, set by Cuttlebug; border punch - Fiskars; Pop Dots.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!!!
