Ok on to some shares... I needed 2 birthday cards last week.. 1 for a girl.. 1 for a boy.. so I came up with these 2.. similar in LO... but still different.. Used my PTI dies (tag, star, and numbers).. LOVE them... and embossing folders!! (LOVE them too! HA HA!) added sentiments, ribbons, buttons, and a glittery star I made and they were DONE! :)

A Birthday and A Thank You Share!!

HELLLLOOO blog friends I am still here.. just been BUSY BUSY!!! My girly is getting braces in 2.5 weeks.. so we have been going to some ortho appts. for that, my Justin has been under the weather for the last week.. had to take him to the DR. (guess what it was.. all related to his cold.. just like MOM said! when will he listen! LOL!! ) I am behind on so many things so I am going to make this fast!!! and I PROMISE I am going to catch up on all my blog visits this weekend!! :)

Lets get to the shares! First up a little thank you card I whipped up.. I just ADORE that snowflake from accent essentials cricut cart... sigh....You cant see but IRL I sprayed it with glimmer mist to give it some shimmer!! :)

Next friend Diane shared a card using this sketch from cardabilities.. I LOVED it.. so I used it too... flipped it, and made it my own for a birthday card!
My Take- I needed a GUY card..

That is all I have for you my friends.. I will be back this weekend with a PIO share... and I HOPE to create the WHOLE weekend.. or at least Sunday.. YEAH for the Superbowl.. My boys wont need me at all that day! HA HA!!
Have a FABULOUS weekend and as always THANKS for stopping by
