The past week wasn't a complete loss

So even though this past week has been one of the most hectic in a very long time, I did manage to get a couple of birthday cards done that I needed :)

This first one is for my cousin in Miami. I cut the cake from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge at 3 inches and used a pop dot to raise it up. And the strip at the bottom was made with a Martha Stewart border punch.

This next one is for my best friend from college. She loves turtles so I know she is going to love this :) I printed up the sentiment on my computer and cut the thought bubble from Plantin Schoolbook (along with the shadow of it) at 1 3/4 inches. The turtle is from Create-A-Critter (cut at two inches), the flowers are from a couple of punches I've got, and I used some bling to dress them up. I also added some stickles on the turtle's spots and flower to give it a bit more sparkle :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like them :)
