Busy Weekend

Well I had a very busy weekend. On Saturday, I went to my friend Cindy's birthday party. She had a taco guy and a very funny birthday cake involving a picture of her head on a cartoon body. My stepdaughter's birthday was Sunday but she's having her party next month so we went to dinner and had cake. I gave her a target giftcard and made a fun gift card envelope using the wonderful directions found on Cambria Turnbow's blog. The above picture is the outside. I used the Happy Birthday stamp set for the greeting and the inside as well. The flower is from my cuttlebug and the ribbon is Stampin' Up! I used Paisley and Petals paper from SEI. I have tons of SEI paper, I belong to their monthly club. So it was nice to use some of it. The rhinestone flowers are the connection club rewards from CTMH and are so cute. These are really easy to make and I plan on making a bunch more and keeping them handy. Now that I've seen some made with the SU designer paper, I might have to get me some of that paper when the new catalog comes out. I don't have a demonstrator so I guess I'll have to shop for one.

I also worked on Father's Day cards. I only have to make 2 of them. This is one that I made for my dad. The shirt was also from Cambria Turnbow's site. She has an absolutely wonderful tutorial on how to make the shirt. I had tried last year to make one using directions I found on the Internet and I could not make it work. With these directions, I did it on the first try. The front seemed so plain, so I added a tie but I wish I could find something that would work for buttons. I used my cuttlebog dots and blooms embossing folder for the background. The first time I've every used it. All of the papers and colonial white waxy flax is CTMH. The sentiment is from last month's stamp of the month. All of the papers came from the Laid Back paper packet. My dad's a surfer so I always try to make him a card that is beach or tropical oriented.
