Birthday Card

My daughter is heading to a birthday party next weekend and asked me to make a card for her friend.  Originally I asked her what she wanted for a card, but in the end I decided I really wanted to colour this Kraftin' Kimmie image.  I just think it is so cute!!!  

I made this card for the following Challenge:

Scallop Circle Tri Fold Card

This past weekend was our monthly Stampin' Up club meeting and there were lots of left over supplies, so instead of recycling them I scooped them into a bag and thought I'd could use them another day.  I had a little bit of time today and was cleaning up my desk and decided I would spend a few minutes making a card.  This is what I came up with.

Birthday Invitation

My son's birthday is just around the corner and I needed to get his invitations done.  Unlike my daughter, he is not overly interested in what it looks like.  He just wanted it to represent "going to the movies".
