Friends and Birthdays

In my previous post I mentioned that I spent some time with my friends this weekend.  It was actually a time to celebrate two birthdays.  My friend, Cheryl, came from Charlotte for the weekend and five of us had a wonderful time together.  This week I made cards for Kim and Beverly using the new Panda’s Birthday set.  I thought I would share them with you.


This card was for Kim.  I used one of the sentiments from the set that was perfect for her.  Don’t panic, Kim.  I won’t tell them how old you are!!  She loves pandas so I knew she would enjoy this card.  Happy Birthday, Kim!!


The image is heat embossed with Ebony Spark embossing powder.  It is a rich black with lovely sparkle.  Then I used Dimensional Glue to add Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft to the white areas.  I loved the way they turned out.






I made a similar card for Beverly, with the same image but using the other birthday sentiment from the set.  It was sooo fitting for her as this was a big milestone in birthdays.  Happy 70th Birthday, Bev!!

This is such a fun new set and even though my cards were for two girlfriends, it would also be great for a masculine card.

I’ll be back with more real soon.







This card is entered in the following challenges:
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge Week 116 - Masculine Birthday
Charisma Cardz Challenge #28 - Your Favorite Animal
