Birthday Wishes!

Here's a simple and fast card that I made for our newspaper carrier's son (Joshua).. I was told that he loves his ice creams so I decided to ink up this digi image with my MS markers and  added stickles to the top layer of the ice cream (vanilla) added ribbon  that I bought from(Target) and used up some scraps and the birthday sentiment from Hero Arts collection...He was so happy to receive it and I gave him a McDonald's gift certificate with  this card.

My next card is a flap card that I got inspired when I saw Karen's blog and I wanted to give it a try so I got my instructions from Split coast stampers.  I do need to do invitations for a upcoming birthday party so I figure I better practice and get ideas on this pattern...  It was really fast to put together so I was please with the out come of it... Used up a few scraps, ribbon, oval scallop punch,  and copic markers...

Well I'm off to figure out what other projects I can come up with next.
Until then, have a blessed day/evening...
Thanks for dropping in and visiting my blog..
Many hugs to ya all!
