A Producitive Weekend

What a great weekend!  Still working on catching up on all of my projects- but this weekend I took a quick detour to do a couple of (belated) birthday cards.  One of my best friends is coming for a quick this upcoming weekend and her birthday is right around the corner, along with her mom's *and* her boyfriend's!  Guess that means that everybody needs a card! LOL  So here's what I came up with...

The inside features a phrase cut from Wild Card.  I sure hope she likes it!

The inside features a cut from the George cart.
For her mom, I created this "cupcake in black and (off)white".  Since the colors were so simple, I broke out the Cuttlebug and a Versa Magic Dew Drop to add some dimension to the elements.  This card pulled me out of my comfort zone a little bit, but I think it came out pretty well.  Her mom will definitely tell me if it didn't! LOL
Oh- I almost forgot these little bags!  My final contribution to my co-worker's baby shower are decorative bags that will be used around the room to anchor balloons and spruce up the buffet tables.  Once again, using the super-cute giraffe cut from New Arrival, to tie them in with the baby bottle invitations.  The bag itself was cut from Plantin Schoolbook, which had truly got to be one of my favorite carts *ever*!  There are so many hidden gems on it.

 So all in all, I was able to get a lot accomplished!  Can't wait for the weekend to get here!  Thanks for stopping by & have a great week!

Cute card! My daughter would love it! She's a purple "freak", too. So much so that her bedroom is purple...not lilac, nor lavender...PURPLE! As in concord grape! TFS
