Happy Birthday Thomas

Our September birthdays continue.  Our grandson,Thomas, turns 14 today - I just don't know where the time has gone.  He is, of course, taller than me now.  I thought I would keep his card pretty simple and stick with circles. It is really hard for me to NOT put ribbons and bling on a card.  I embossed different Happy Birthdays on the circles.  It's hard to see it on the Daffodil Delight circle but it's there!
  

Supplies: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist, and Daffodil Delight Card Stock; Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper; Versamark Ink; Clear Embossing Powder; 1 1/2" Circle Punch.

Christmas Gift Box

I use a lot of gift boxes and gift card holders at Christmas time.  When I saw these cute little Pizza Boxes I felt as if I discovered gold!  They are perfect for baked items or 3-d items.  The ribbons and accessories in the holiday catalog are great for putting the finishing touches on your gifts. These little boxes, along with all of the designer series papers and embellishments make it so easy to create a beautiful gift.

Crate full of cards!
I love having little 3x3 cards on hand, and when the Wood Crate Framelits came out I thought what could be better than a crate full of them?  This would be great for a gift or just to have on your desk.
