2 Unique Requests

Some days I wish I could 'retire' from my day job to craft full time!! I said- I *wish* I could do that...!  lol But reality isn't that bad, especially when I have great weeks like this one!

From my assignment as Birthday Ambassador, came 2 more requests for cards.  The first one was for a second birthday card for the co-worker I made the card for in the previous post.  This card needed to feature Mike Tyson and say something about 'slipping a birthday punch'.  I clearly know nothing about boxing and I didn't get the punch line...and I still don't!  LOL  But that didn't stop me from making a pretty cool card--if I do say so myself! ;o)

Inside of card
I love the Indie Art cartridge and have always wanted to use the fist image- this card gave me the perfect opportunity!  The color scheme worked out nicely, and my the person who requested the card really liked it!  He also thought it was  really I guess I gave him what he was looking for!

The second request came from another co-worker who wanted a birthday card for his daughter.  She turning 8 and is truly a Girly Girl.  He told me that she love pink, purple, and Barbie.  So I knew that this was going to give me another opportunity to work with my new Forever Young cartridge.

I found this super cute designer paper at Michael's that served as my inspiration.  Then, when I found the image on the cart that reminded me of classic Barbie, I was really on my way. 

I wanted to do something different, so I decided to make a gate fold card.  This is the first gate fold I've done and I think it was a great choice for this young ladies' card!

This weekend is a 3-day weekend and for me that means 3 days of uninterupted crafting!!...or something like that...!  LOL  But I do need to get a jump on the Christmas Cards I'm making for my family.  Sounds like the next project to me!
