Another B-day card

What's with all the birthday cards lately??  I don't know if your family is like mine, but I always get the...

"Mom, remember I need a birthday card before I leave"

I say "When are you leaving"

they say "In 20 minutes"

Ok, it's not that I don't have a million pre-made cards laying around, but of course none of those are what they "need"  Like for this needed to have an owl, and be pink, black and white.  Apparently I was fresh out of those cards (wink, wink) So in all of about 10 minutes I whipped this little number up.

Please ignore the ribbon..apparently I have a ribbon thief in my home.  It sneaks in my room and steals my wide black and white polka dot ribbon...then uses it for her HAIR and to tie up the sleeves of her shirt.  Yes, I love that my dear daughter is creative, but could she just not be sooooo creative with all of my ribbon.  LOL!

A super cool announcement and a card :

First the announcement!

I was asked to be a guest designer on Christmas with the Cricut. Yay!! How cool is that!?!? Those gals are uber talented. Be sure to stop over there and look at all their incredible projects!!!

Now for a card...

This is a quick card I made for our neighbor's 9th birthday.

The frosting on the cupcake is white liquid applique that I tinted with pixie pink reinker. Then while I was heating up the applique I added a few beads as sprinkles.

I hope you like it. (I apologize for the bad picture, but my camera was dead so I had to use my daughters)
