They Say It's Your Birthday!

It's the middle of the week!  And one week until our family heads out on vacation!  The countdown is on...

Today I'm popping in to share two cards using CAS-ual Friday stamps.  My first card is inspired by this gorgeous card by Christina.  I loved the colors and the pattern.  To make this card I used two different sets: Bold Wishes and  Loving Thoughts.  This card has already been given to my dear friend, Sandy, who absolutely loves red.  We went out on Saturday to celebrate her birthday (a bit belated!) and get a pedicure. A great few hours of relaxation.

The second card was inspired by this cupcake I found on Pinterest.  I loved the lattice looking background.  The only stamping on this card is the sentiment from the Only You set.

I hope you like both the cards!  If you're interest...here's a link to my Pinterest boards.  I've been having lots of fun finding inspiration on Pinterest.
