Princess Birthday Card

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Can't believe how long I've been away from the blogging world.  Being sick and other priorities kept me away from all things crafty.  I did make a card for our little Princess Addy to give to her friend Princess Sophie.  I was privileged to take Addy to the party last Saturday and all the princesses had a royal time.  Even Rapunzel showed up for face painting and sang to them, one of the songs from the movie Tangled!
  It took me all evening the night before the party to get this little card together, the creative juices are out of practice!

 Here is a peek at the inside:

Happy Birthday Jake!

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Today is our oldest grandchild's birthday!  Jakob turns seven today and here is the card I made for him.  He started taking Jiu Jitsu lessons in the fall and has been doing great.  A couple of weeks ago he earned his yellow belt so when I saw this LaLa Land Craft stamp I had to get it for his birthday card.  The name of the stamp is Karate Luka but we won't tell Jake!
 I've colored Luka with Copic markers and the paper I've used is from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit for February (WeR Memory Keepers 6x6 pad Hip Hip Hooray and the HB sentiment is from the stamp of the month Birthday Bash) I've used the following inks: Memento (tuxedo black, nautical blue) Distress Inks (antique linen, peacock feathers, mustard seed); Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circle Die.
 More pictures to come after his party...
