Birthday cheer


So.... I've got these two fabulous blogging friends named Jen and Karen and they've decided to host a virtual birthday card party, and they invited the Ribbon Lady, and she loves presents, so there's a ribbon giveaway in honor of my birthday!  Wow ladies, thanks for the love :)  So go leave a comment here, here and on the May Arts blog for your chance to win some ribbon, oh right... and here too :)  Since this was a surprise party I didn't have a card that works with the challenge that Jen & Karen are playing along, so below are some birthday cards I made earlier this week...  Can't have a post without any cards right?

This card uses May Arts satin pleats ribbon, PTI sentiment and The Crafts Meow background stamp (designed by Karen).


This card uses May Arts corduroy velvet ribbon, Kaiser Crafts patterned paper, PTI sentiment and some fun faux chalkboard embossing/colored pencils/distress inks.


And this one doesn't have any ribbon (oh dear), but maybe one doesn't want to drip their ice cream on ribbon on such a warm day?  I thought this card might work well for the Moxie Fab World mixy/matchy challenge.
