A busy card-making weekend!

Hi ladies! Hope you had a great weekend! I had a couple of birthdays and needed 4 cards! The first was for a 1-year old. I forgot to take a picture of the clown card from Wrap it Up! dang it! Came out pretty cute, glittered the hat to bling it up, but it wasn't as cute as this Hip Hippo Hooray card from Birthday Bash and my Imagine in my favorite shade of turquoise! Birthday Bash is 1 of my favorite carts!! The hippo is pink although I'm not sure what color it looks like, that was embossed with Swiss dots and some pink paper from Michaels' package of stock paper. The ribbon is American Ribbon.

 You may want to grab a cup of coffee. Have a couple more cards to show you!

I needed a couple of cards for my SIL, one from my husband and myself and one from my son, who was unable to attend due to having to work. My SIL is a big-time golfer, actually he's a sports fanatic!! But he golfs a lot. This cart and clubs is from Wrap it up, cut twice, once with silver metallic paper for the clubs and once in brown for the bag that was also Cuttlebugged, but I don't know what the name of the embossing folder is! The Ha-p-b-day is from Smiley Cards. I got super lucky with the paper, because I had cut out the bag and phrase at a crop Friday night and hoped I'd have some paper to match at home! and when I got home I found this paper in a Granola 6x6 paper pad that I had received from my Circle pal!! Thanks Circle pal, Beulah!! It's a perfect paper, makes me think of golf balls! LOL!

This "money card/envelope" was printed and cut with the Imagine, the Imagine More Cards cart, page 14. Cut at "fit to page" is a perfect size for gluing the sides of the third layer to the 2nd layer and fitting money in the pocket!! The front is also from the same cart cut at 2 1/2" and a strip of paper cut at 9" and wrapped around the card and velcro'd, but it can just slide off if you don't want or don't have the velcro. I wish I hadn't attached the velcro so low that I couldn't hide the flap but then he wouldn't know it was there! The colors are more vibrant than they are showing up here. I had a gypsy file someone else had designed for this very reason, but this was super easy and you can choose to change all three colors and patterns if you choose! I did change the stripes on the front page from "flowers"! Not exactly what my SIL would have liked!!

Well aren't you glad now I didn't take that 4th picture!! Gotta run and get ready for a crop session tomorrow with a friend! woohoo! Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you soon!
