Happy Birthday cards with Papertrey Ink Tremendous Treats!

Okay, so my son gets invited to a birthday party and I get so excited to pull out my cutie patootie tremendous treats stamps!  I had to double my fun, because he was invited to a party for twin six year old girls.  The party was at the Wisconsin Humane Society, but gratefully(?) I did not take home a new friend for my doggie Daphne!   Even though my sweet three year old thought it was a great idea for Father's Day!  Here are my two cards,  I used the same basic layout, but different color schemes.  I also used the Background Basics: Medallions set (because I just LOVE it!) to add a background pattern to ground my images.  Let me know what you think of these cards...hope I made the girls smile:)

So, there is always time to restart a blog...right?  I have had a busy school year teaching my 3rd and 4th graders.  I also have such a beautiful family that has needed my strength over this year.  That's what I have been up to, but I have not stopped crafting.  Here's my latest creation, just hoping to tap into Betsy Veldman's amazing talent for her Make it Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink.  I used some score tape to create the borders that separate the card sentiment visually from the pretty peonies.  I used winter wisteria to stamp the peonies and the sentiment.  The word happy was cut from Winter Wisteria cardstock with the Pretty Peonies die set.  I can't wait to play with the pretty peonies dies again, so much fun!  I had to add some pizzazz with the aqua glitter...too much fun!
