Birthday Cards!!

Hi! Well, I did manage to finish both my DD and DH's birthday cards in time!! For hers I did a little portrait card, doing my best to make Rain Anya from the "Rain,Snow, Shine" set look like my daughter. She was thrilled and when she opened it at her party she kept saying "It's me!!". That made me feel all warm and glow-y!! I also played along with the Whimsical Wednesday Diedrich Dare from last week (I am a little behind on things in case you haven't noticed!!) which was to be inspired by this plate:
After reading the challenge last week I did not go back and look at the plate again because I have a tendency to be too literal so I just went with the impression it left in my mind. I am having to fight myself now not to be disappointed that I got the colors so wrong!! LOL!!

The Details:
Stamp: Rain, Snow, Shine - The Greeting Farm
Paper: Rich Razzelberry, Cool Caribbean, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black - SU, PTI White
Copics:
I will edit and add later - during the "cleaning" for the birthday party I misplaced the notebook I always write them down in as I work!!
Misc: Nestabilites Circle and Scallop Circle, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Razzelberry ribbon - SU, Eggplant Liquid Pearls, EK Success Birthday Bandles Border punch, Stickles, Foam tape


This is going to be the card for my DH (his birthday is tomorrow!)


The Details:
Stamps: Final Frontier - Doodlefactory (Starving Artistamps), Sentiment and balloons - Inkadinkadoo
Paper: Recollections DP, Smokey Shadow, White - PTI
Copics:
I will edit and add later - during the "cleaning" for the birthday party I misplaced the notebook I always write them down in as I work!!
Misc: Foam tape

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
