Happy Birthday Chris & Connie

Last week was my twin sisters birthday, Chris and Connie so I had to get busy with not 1 card but 2!  I was tempted to do the same card but then they got that
most of their lives so I did two different ones.  Plus their birthdays are in December which I am sure Mom and Dad did their best with birthday gifts but somehow people who have birthdays in December must feel like they got short-changed just because Christmas is not that far away. But I never heard either of them complain.
This card is for Chris. I used SU DP which I can't recall the name of it and too lazy to look it up but it is a very pretty design.  Several different layers with the top one having stamped musical notes from a stamp I had and putting Cheery Lynn Designs die on top with SU sentiment on nestabilities die.  The added touch was the Prima flower and a glittery blue brad from SU for the center. I just love the way it came together.  The design idea I used is from Mrsoke.  Check out her card.

The second card is for Connie and I used SU sizzix EF.  Just saying I love this folder!!!!  SU sizzix little leaves were glued on white cardstock and then placed in another SU sizzix EF.  Love this technique!
Added Prima Flowers and MS butterfly punch with
SU sentiment and SU punch. This was the first time that I used this technique and I definitely am going to do it again.  Love this!!!  Thanks for stopping by, now onto Christmas cards!!


  1. I loved my Birthday card! I love that Cheery Lynn Design die - so much I bought one too! Thank you for thinking of us on our birthday! Love you, sister!

  2. I love my card, too. The technique you did was awesome. I am looking at Cheery Lynn Designs so I can do the same thing... Thanks for celebrating out birthday together. Love you, too.. Connie
