Birthday Cards

Here are the cards I have been working on lately. On this one I used a Mojo sketch and some pp from We R Memory Makers, a Verve stamp, and a new border punch I bought at Michaels. I think it's called fleur de lis or something like that. A friend came over and saw it in my stack of new cards and said she wants it for her birthday. Can you guess who she is? Yes it's the purple lover Hernetta, so she gets it when I do the inside.

I made this card for my sister's birthday last week, but have not given it to her because she was sick the whole weekend and I didn't want to catch her cold. ( I guess I could have mailed it).

For this last card I pulled out some paper I haven't used in a long time. SEI makes some beautiful papers and I love that they coordinate so well. I'm finally using this butterfly stamp from SU. I'm sending this one to a friend whose B-day is on Tuesday, and boy will she be surprised to get this from me. She doesn't even know I make cards. Now I'm off to make one more birthday card for my neighbor whose birthday is actually today. I just found out about it, and she is out of town anyway!


Yeah I know it's been a few days (weeks) LOL since I posted, but I needed to work on three birthday cards. I finally finished the last one and will post in the morning.

Thanks Michael Jackson

Well today was Michael Jackson's Memorial. It was a very touching and beautiful tribute to a man who has done some much. It is wonderful to know that he was loved by so many around the world. As I was making my card for the Mojo Monday Sketch I thought about Michael Jackson and the difference he has made to so many people. So I dedicate this card to the King of Pop. Thank you Michael for making a difference, for caring about people, for the musical legacy you have left behind.
