Happy Birthday Cathy and Holly

Today is the birthday of two special girls in our family. One is Cathy, our youngest daughter and the other is her horse Holly. Both have had a rough time time lately so we are hoping that today marks the start of  happier times. I have made them both cards.

For Cathy's card I used one of my favourite stamps. It's from Whimsy Stamps and I coloured it using Promarkers. The papers are from Fabulously Feminine Mini available from Scribble & Scrap and I created the sentiment on the computer. The dies are Cheery Lynn Leaf Flourish. The purple pearlescent card, lace, pearls and flowers are from my stash.

It's Holly's 18th but she won't be celebrating with champagne. She has been on "box rest" for a couple of months after being injured in transit so maybe she'll be allowed just a few apples and carrots.

The stamped image is from Clarity and I layered it up using X-cut Scalloped Circle dies. The apple background is self-adhesive fabric from Docrafts. I finished the card with a computer generated sentiment, punched horseshoes and a raffia bow.

Here are both beautiful girls. 

Happy Birthday Cathy! 

Happy Birthday Holly!

Now I must get back to my preparations for my Docrafts demonstration on Saturday. I'll show you some samples in a few days.
