Happy Birthday Bo!

My youngest nephew is two! This card is simple, but I think it is one of my favorites so far. Used PDDU for the clown.....cut on 2". Added glitter, gel pen, chalks, ink, and rhinestones. My favorite crafting project are the little tiny paper dolls. Paper used is Daisy D's Bambino. Cut scalloped ovals from by Nesties with the CB. Attached pop dots between oval layers and under the clown.

Cardalicious #26

I have two dear friends with birthdays this week. I decided to make ladybug cards for two special ladies. At Cardalicious, the challenge this week was to use green, pink, and orange so I decided to make these the theme colors. The cute little ladybug digi-stamp is from Sweet 'n' Sassy.....colored with pencils (I mess up watercolors...........) Added a little glitter to one of them. Paper is by Anna Griffen......those polka dots are them. And got the whole package of paper (20 ) sheets at Big Lots for $2!!!! Used my nestabilities in the Cuttlebug.......stamped Happy Birthday on one card...........the other is hand written. The first card has cone flowers from Walk in My Garden......embellished with some tiny orange seed beeds and ink - ribbon stems.

Mud Pies for Sale

I made this little messy fellow and the sign for a swap.......had an extra and decided to use it on a birthday card. The little boy is PPDU......hat is from Pooh and Friends. The sign is from Pooh, too. Used lots of chalk and lots of ink, including what I used to make the little guy "muddy." The little frogs are PPDU. Trimmed with adhesive ribbon and buttons. Inside has another frog and "Hoppy Birthday!"
