Happy Birthday x 2

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Happy Wednesday to you.  I've got 2 real simple cards that were part of our Relay efforts the other day.  I just love this embossing folder.  So much fun.  Also, the paper has a lot of texture and glitter.  Very pretty irl.
Patterned paper:  My Minds Eye

Stamps:  CTMH Happy Birthday
Other:  Cuttlebug, PTI buttons
We had a serious storm last night.  I was driving to get Reynna from dance and the rain was so heavy and then the hail started.  The streets were covered white.  I was so happy to arrive safely at the dance studio.  Although I walked in like a wet dog.  I was literally soaked from walking from the car to the studio.  Several counties in Colorado, including ours, were issued tornado warnings.  Yikes. 

I hope that you have a fantastic day.  Thanks for stopping by.

I have to say I just love these cards!

Excellent cards, Alanna! That is a fun folder and I can definitely see the sparkle and shine on the squares.

We had some strong thunderstorms roll through, but thankfully it was just rain and noise for us! It started just as we were getting out of the Brownie meeting potluck and we got into our car at just the right time. The girls were completely impressed with the impressive lightning though!

Hopefully it'll be a little drier today, huh? Have a good one!

Very nice cards, Alanna! Great papers, and wonderful use of the favorite embossing folder.

Glad you made through the storm with nothing more than a drenching. Tornado warnings are scary.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Great embossing! I need to pull that folder out and use it again!

Perfect birthday cards! We had quite a storm last night too, our power was out for almost 10 hours and they cancelled school today!
