Cool Birthdays

Birthday Ambassador duty has called once again!  Well, really it's called several times the last two months- I just keep forgetting to take pics of the cards! lol!  But I *am* trying to get better about that- and here's the proof!  

This first card features a cut from the 'Just Because Cards' Cricut cartridge.  I wanted to do something clean and simple for this co-worker and highlighting this sundae on a 6X6 square card seemed like a great design.  It turned out a bit different than I had imagined, but I better than I was picturing!  The dotted paper really adds something to the card, dontcha think?!  I gave the card some dimension by popping the sundae up on some foam squares.  The inside reads "best wishes for a sweet birthday- with a cherry on top!"  I hope she likes it!

This card is for a co-worker that I don't know really well, but I was told by one of my 'ambassador connections' (lol), that she *loves* the beach.  At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but after a quick trip to Michael's, where I found this awesome flip-flop paper by My Mind's Eye called Totally Flippable.  My intention was to simply feature the flops on the paper and maybe add a few embellishments.  But the Just Because Cards cart came in handy yet again when I noticed this refreshing (lol) glass of lemonade!  Some vellum and a few Fiskar's punches later- this card was born!!  I love this entire look and I alllmost said I was keeping this one!  But in the end I wished her a birthday with 'sand, sun, and lots of fun'! 

Duty is going to call at least twice more this month, and I can't wait to see what's to come!  I'll be sure to share!
