A very big THANK YOU

Whooo Hooo, I won! I'm sending a very big Thank You to Donna at Popsicle Toes . I was the fortunate winner of the Custom Crops gift certificate from her blog hop. She has a wonderful blog with lots of inspiration to share. If you scroll thru her projects you will see some wonderful Christmas cards.
You have to visit Custom Crops too and check out all their wonderful sales. I love their sales on Cricut cartridges and I buy "My Pink Stamper" stamps from them also. I haven't decided which cartridge I'm buying with my gift certificate but I'll be deciding soon.

Birthday Cards

I decided that I was going to make all of the birthday cards this year. This is the card I made for all the teen girls in our families. The girl image and sentiment on the front of the card are made with Close to my Heart stamps. Inside the card the "Birthday Wishes" is from "My Pink Stamper" line of stamps I think. I love the saying for this card. It's perfect for teen girls. It reminds them they are exactly who they are supposed to be. "Be Yourself... Everyone else is taken"! All the papers on this card are made with scraps.

This card was made for all the young boys. It's so super easy. Patterned paper for the top portion and scrap paper for the blue and green cardstock. The cupcake was punched from patterned paper also, I punched a scalloped circle to mount the cupcake on and the front is done. The inside candle border is a EK Success border punch I think. So super easy for little boys that don't really care about cards.
