Another birthday card

My picture didn't turn out as well as I hoped and my camera battery died just after I took this photo. The cattails look cool in real life because I used liquid applique in brown and puffed it up so they look more realistic. I used pond pals stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps as I said before I love this set. The happy birthday stamp is ctmh- from me to you the cardstock is ctmh -colonial white, chocolate, garden green. I used ctmh chocolate and black ink, the ribbon was target $ and I wish I had more it's brown with green stitching, it's so pretty.

Hanna sketch challenge

This card was done for the Hanna sketch challenge I really love this sketch. It's the first time I've done a sketch challenge I had a lot of fun doing it.
I used making memories kids collection -Emma 6x6 paper. I bought this paper and I really liked it but never used it so when I saw this sketch I new it would be so cute. I used my cuddle bug swirls for the embossing, and my corner rounder for the scallops.

Valentine baby

I decided I need to do a layout so I sat down yesterday and made this I think these are the cutest pics of my daughter I took them last year on valentines. Just look at those chunky thighs she was 6 months old, oh how fast they grow up. The funny thing about this is she's wearing a build-a-bear outfit. How cute is that?

The layout is from CTMH Imagine-layout minuet
Everything is CTHM except the ribbon - pink stripe and pink poke- a-dot button is target $, black ribbon American crafts and the black brads, rub ons making memories.
cs colors- bubblegum, cranberry, black, white
ink colors- cranberry, black, baby pink, and white daisy pigment ink
stamp sets- All my love, princess, rustic flowers, and happy Easter
