Yesterday the youngest child of one of my best friends celebrated his birthday. The card I made him is completely inspired by this card from Nichole Heady. I couldn't copy the strip of stamped numbers since I don't own the stamps. So guess what I ordered this morning along with some of the new release products? Yes....the Alpha-blocks stamp set. I could no longer resist this set.

The second card is another clean & simple design. This one is for a friend who celebrated her 40th birthday last weekend. I was determined to use the pink/red color combo, but it was quite a struggle to put this card together. I simply couldn't put it all together like I had in mind. The small flourish I stamped on each scallop doesn't really match with the other modern stamps and shapes, but there was no time to change it.
