Working on Birthday cards

We celebrate 2 birthdays this month in our family. I did this card for a Stamp-A-Stack in April. I am thinking of doing an updated version for one of the birthdays this month. I think I found this design on SplitCoast to case for my SAS. Sometimes when time is in short supply and I have a specific request for a certain set or technique, I will go surfing for ideas. I just love the embossing folders and use them a lot for quick backgrounds especially when I am doing Card for the Troops. The Crazy for Cupcakes set is a fun set to play with. Hopefully there will be lots of creating time this week. I do know I need some new pictures of cards for posting, my photo file is just a little thin at the moment. On a personal note, I am 3lbs lighter, only 37 more pounds to go. Having cranky joints makes it difficult to work out but not impossible and adjusting portions isn't hard to do. I was even able to enjoy ice cream in this heat a couple of times last week. Here's to good health! Materials used: Cardstock - Tempting Turquoise and Orchid Opulence (retired), Stamps- Crazy for Cupcakes, Tempting Turquoise ribbon and rhinestone brad, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
