I've been asked by one of my friends at work to make a load of birthday cards for her, so all of mine this weekend are birthday ones - never made so many all in one go before. And OMG has this week been hard getting up early again for work every day. I've been totally shattered all week! I'll soon get back into the swing of things though, but by then it will be time for half term LMAO!
My first card is for Mojo #172 for the sketch, Paper Pal Arts #76 to use Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz (gorgeous colour combo too!), Stampin' Royalty's #53 to make a birthday card, Free For All #40 to use desserts and for Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes with a Lace extra challenge.

My next card is for SC314 for the sketch, Color Throwdown's #123 to use Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze and Cameo Coral (glad to see the girls are back after their break!) and for Sweet Stampin's Try Something Different challenge. I very rarely use my distressing tool and attempt this kind of aged, vintage look and pull it off, but I really love how this one turned out! I even like Cameo Coral on this one, which is a challenge in itself!

My last card for today started off using Waltzing Mouse's sketch #29, but I added more and more to it, so it no longer really looks like the sketch LOL. This is also for Just Add Ink's #50 to use So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Riding Hood Red and Elegant Eggplant and for Pam's Papertrey Princess challenge Huff On It to use markers to colour a stamp, then huff on it to remoisten the ink before stamping.
