Birthday Cards

Two girlfriend Birthdays.  Karen gets a card made in pink and Virginia's card was made in blue...
I was looking at photo of cards I've made and realized, it's been awhile since I last posted.  I will try to be a bit more regular. 

Guess what.... both cards were made from snippets.  Virginia's from a card class kit that I've been hoarding.  If you look at the sentiment, and I hope you do.  I mixed some glitter and some embossing powder to get this color.  The sentiment was first stamped in Black Color Box.    Lucky break?  Maybe, but then if you check the bin, you'll see there were lots of mistakes before I stumbled on this success.  Karen's card is from a piece of card stock I purchased when she was in the Paradise location, seems like forever ago.  I guess I'd best slip onto the playground and post these two cards.  Want to see more snippets?  I hope you do!  Click on the link below....

My dog is sitting by my feet whining....he thinks when dinner is done he should be able to sit on my lap and watch TV.  He is my little Rain Man...he is a creature of habit and this is one he insists that I keep.  The upside, I can sit with him and browse Di's blog page.  Commenting one handed might prove interesting! 

Until next time.....Happy crafting,
Mary Mac


  1. Two fabulous cards Mary - and I do love the effect you achieved with the embossing. I did laugh here about whispering due to Parsnip being a tad under the weather :) He's got a few questions to answer in a couple of days time!

    Hugs, Di xx
