Happy Birthday

 
Happy Thursday Crafty friends!
 Today I have a birthday card to share with you.  My son was invited to a classmate's birthday party this weekend so I thought I would make her a card. 



I used the Strawberry Cupcake twine for my bow.  I think it matches perfectly with the colors of the cupcake.  I used the Scalloped Circles from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons to make my card base.  The inner scalloped circle is also from the Scalloped Circles cutting files. 
 
 
The cupcake is from Birthday Panda Cutting files, also from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Sweet Birthday Wishes.   

 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great Memorial Day weekend!!

For My Teacher



Happy Thursday Crafty Friends!
 
Today I have a card to share with you.  I made this card for my son to give to his teacher since this week is Teacher Appreciation week.  Each day of the week we are supposed to bring her something different.  Monday I was supposed to send a fruit with my son but I completely forgot.  Tuesday we are supposed to make her a card, So I thought I would make her a card with a fruit on it.  Makes complete sense right?  Ha ha

 
My card base is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Layered Labels 1 cutting files.  The apple is from the Back to School cutting files, also from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

 
The twine is Cherry Red Twine from Timeless Twine.  I love this red and white combination. 
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's School Rules stamp set. 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great day!
