Two Birthday Cards

Yay for Spring Break! There are so many glorious hours in the day when I only have one full time responsibility, instead of two. I love school and my job is great, but I can't wait for our huge 7 month trip where I won't be doing either of them!

Anyways, free time means more scrapping. Here are my most recent two cards...
My mom got the card in the mail yesterday, so I can post a picture now :). I shouldn't reveal a lady's age, but it ended in a "0" so it's a big one. I tried some new things, like with the twine, beads and painting.

I'm pretty excited about it and my mom loved it :)

Then I challenged myself by combining challenges and made a card for my sister Lila. (Or, I think I'll give it to her, it's still a month and a half away.) Her birthday ALSO ends in a zero this year-30.

So the challenges that inspired me:
First, I saw the colors over at ColorQ (#77) and immediately thought of Lila-she loves blue.

But I thought "meh, it's too soon to make a card for her!" But then I saw the challenge happening at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Now, I hope this still counts-the challenge was clean and simple-and child themed. Since she's turning 30 I know she's not a child age-wise, but she is develop-mentally disabled, so she still likes children things. In my mind she's a big kid.

And, lastly, because I like seeing how many challenges I can combine on one card, I snatched a layout from over at Get Sketchy (#79) again.

Whew! Long post today. Again, yay for Spring break!
