Birthday Cards!!!

If you are looking for the Can You Digi It? post, it is here.


My sweet friend Marisa makes the coolest cards and sometimes they call me and say,"Hey Nancy, come make a card using this sketch too." That is what happened to me yesterday when I saw this card. I love her clean lines and the lovely patterned paper, and that sketch is so fun. I thought about it all day and decided to do one myself last night. I started with a white card base like Marisa, but then I never got another color and this is what happened. I love this JUGS sketch! I am entering this in the JUGS#157 Sketch challenge.

I love rolled roses and these fun efs (Sizzix and SU! and the dies are from Cheery Lynn and MFT).


Since I had my ef collection out and needed another birthday card, I played in the CAS challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. The theme is Plaid so I used my new SU! Big Shot Holiday Frame ef, added a punched sentiment and some gems (from the Zva Crystal Wheel which is available at CYDI?), and a plaid bow.

Hugz to all!
