round and 16

Cheers!  It's hot in California and a nice cold lemonade sounds delish... (but based on the way my day has gone, I've gone for a large glass of red wine instead).  365 Cards is kicking off a fun week with DRS Designs and I've got the first card, challenge theme is "round".  Interpret how you wish, come play along with us for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to their shop.  I've used the interlocking circle background to set the tone on this fun card.  

And this card... remember a couple weeks back when I said I needed a teen birthday card for my neighbor, well she didn't like this one.  So when I saw Angeline's card on Jay Gee's Nook I decided to CASE it and then add a few of the colors from the current challenge.  Hope she likes this one, the birthday boy is turning 16 on Wendesday.

Hope everyone else started off their week on the right foot.  I had a busy weekend in my little town, a soapbox derby then a big bike race!

Both cards are great Erin. I think the colours and design of the second one are perfect for a teen boy. Thanks so much for joining us at Jay Gee's :)

I love the touch of scoring on the first one...and the texture on the second is divine.

I love the pictures from the bike and soapbox race. Fabulous!

Love those bubbles to go with the glass of lemonade! Although I'd take a glass of wine first any day. :) I think your neighbor will love the masculine birthday card. The background is so cool!
