Celebration Season Begins

You may recall from my last post that I am in the middle of "party season" with my family. I thought that today I might share some of the cards and invitations I am making as part of the celebrations. 

With this card I am also linking up to the Fantabluous Cricut Challenge  "Fun in the Sun" challenge.  I used the "Life's a Beach" and "Create a Critter" cartridges to make this card for the upcoming birthday of a beach lover.  The papers I used were mainly scraps- I promise to take better note of my materials in the future- I am still new at this blogging stuff! 

One of my dear cousins had a birthday this past week and I sent her this card to convey our wish for her special day. The stamp is an old one from Michael's that I found in their dollar stamp bin and get a lot of use for, including decorating cake boxes. The paper and ribbon are from Michael's as well. Of course, I had to put a bit of bling on the cake (it was difficult to resist putting a rhinestone on the beach card, but I just couldn't figure out where!). 

This card is for the upcoming birthday of an airplane aficionado. I made it with the "Art Deco" Cricut cartridge.  The nose is of course, a rhinestone, but it looks like it needs something else.  I'll keep working on it. 

We have a big 20th birthday party planned for "my baby" next week.  Here is a sneak peek at the invitation.  More on that celebration later.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope that you are having a wonderful summer full of fun and family too!
