And More Birthdays....

Hey y'all! I quickly want to share some cards I made last week & just realized I did not post here.
So my sweet & dear friend turned 40 last Friday, & since she lives out of state, I was not able to celebrate with her. Bummer! I did however make her a pretty card & I hope it brings her a smile!!
Everything I used here is from Studio Calico, with the exception of the rumple ribbon. That is from Lovebug Creations in the color Jaded. 
I love how the silver doily, wood veneer numbers & the pastel feathers blend together. The look is muted but also sophisticated. Happy 40th birthday, Laura!!!

The next card I made is for Ty's best friend who turns 10 on Saturday! 
I used the fun glitter dot cardstock that I recently picked up at Hobby lobby. And I raided my stash to finish off this card! (I love when I can do that & use up older items.) The "oh boy" & "smile" circles were punched from a piece of paper from Pink Paislee's Hey Kid collection. I popped them up to give them a little more dimension against the dot paper. The "celebrate" & circle strip are older stickers from Cosmo Cricket. 
I think I have mentioned before that I hold on to everything, & for me, there is such a feeling of accomplishment when I can use my older products!

Thanks for visiting today. Make it a crafty one!!
