Happy Birthday to You


Happy Easter my friends.  I'm off today and the cousins from Pittsburgh have arrived so there will be lots and lots of play time for the boys.  Before our day gets started, I thought I'd share two cards for you.  First up is a card for the current MUSE challenge.  To say I admire this week's MUSE's style is an understatement.  Ardyth is extremely creative.  Her graphic style inspires me.  I follow her on Pinterest and always love to see how she is inspired.  You can tell from my card above and her inspiration below that I followed the layout pretty closely and loved all the colors.  I used an SRM sticker for the sentiment and my new Verve goodies for the flowers.



Two of my co-workers had their first children this week.  I have a baby girl card in my stash, but no boy cards.  So...I quickly got to work on making a boy card following along with this week's Retro Sketch.  Can't say I love this card...but it is out the door!  
Hope you have a fabulous start to the holiday weekend!
