Double Birthday

My parents actually have the same birthday, which just happens to fall on Father's Day this year! So needless to say, Sunday is a big day for my family.

Here's the card I made for my dad for his birthday:That little word bubble, it use to say "thanks a latte" but I really wanted to use it for this b-day card. So, I used my Stampin Write Markers to draw out the word bubble and the put the sentiment of Happy Birthday in. I used dimensionals to pop it up. This is by far one of my favorite cards I've made in a while. (And I'm finally using up this dsp! yay!).

The next card is the one I made for my mom....
I just love the sweetness of the cupcake stamp and its definitely a color combination I've never tried before. I just got that pink gingham ribbon off the SU! clearance rack a couple weeks ago (see, I'm breaking it out early in the game!).

So, which card is your favorite?

Father's Day 2010

So, my lovely blogging friend (Betty) has inspired me to try and update this thing a little more frequently. LOL. She has a great blog where she is doing 365 projects, check it out here Her blog is AMAZING!!!

Anywho, here's the father's day cards I have created for my dad and future father-in-law. I just put them in the mail today, so hopefully they won't be peaking over here on my blog!
Do you see the top note? That's in the wood sheets that SU! sells. I've had them for about a year and am just breaking into the pack now (what can I say, I'm a bit of a hoarder).

Here's a couple detail shots for you:
What do you think? What are you doing for your dad for Father's day?
