Birthday Girl & Birthday Boy

Good morning and happy Thursday! I can't believe how busy this summer has been.....no lazy, hazy days of summer in this house! I am getting samples ready for CHA and a few other things I have in the fire so to speak, that I can't mention yet. (But it is pretty darn exciting!) Hopefully, I can share it next week with you! : )

I had two birthdays last week, one for my niece and the other for my step-dad. I decided, since I am tight for time these days, to make two cards that were identical except for the colors. It definitely makes the process a little easier! I used Papertrey's Enjoy the Ride set. They were stamped in Hibisicus and Hawaiian Shores. I colored the windshields with my Copic, C1 marker to give it a bit of depth. Then it was covered with Crystal Effects. I added pearls to the headlights. Papers are by Papertrey Ink and Cosmo Cricket. (Delovely line). I also used Spellbinder's Small Circles and Large Scalloped Octagons to create the background for the car to sit on. I also used a birthday Cuttle bug folder.



I finished it off with some white satin ribbon and some stick pins....... : )


Anyone else going to CHA this year? I would love to meet you! I will be at JustRite, Crafty Secrets, and Provo Craft's booths this year!
