Fresh Birthday

Tonight I am sharing a card that I created for the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the sketch to follow for {Freshly Made}Sketches #21:

I just received a package of new items that I had ordered from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration and couldn't wait to play!  All products used for this card are from Stampin' Up! with the exception of the Nestabilities Eyelet Circle die.  The colors I used are Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  The stamp is from Happiest Birthday Wishes.  The designer paper is from the Everyday Enchantment collection.  Don't you just love the new in-color coordinating baker's twine?!  So sweet!  You can find it in the current Occasions Mini Catalog.

I am hoping to find some more time this week for stamping.  Work is still consuming most of my days.  I hope you had a beautiful weekend!

Turning Two

Today I am sharing a card that I created for one of my best friend's son who is turning 2!  His birthday party is later on today and I can't wait to celebrate with him!

My inspiration came from the current sketch over at Mojo Monday.  I chose to follow the square option.

I kept this card very simple.  All designer paper is from Basic Grey - Max & Wiskers paper pad.  The number two was computer generated using the font Plantagenet Cherokee - size 200.  Sponging was added in Memento - Rich Cocoa.  The animals are from Stampin' Up! - Fox & Friends, and were stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  I cut the lion and giraffe out and added them to the number two using dimensionals.  My finishing touches were the stitching and some brown and white baker's twine.

Thank you for stopping by!  Wish I have been around more often - I have been working long hours lately.  I am hoping to post again soon!
