Happy Birthday!!!


Good Morning!

I sure had an awesome weekend! We celebrated my mother in laws 80th Birthday in Duluth,Mn. and had such a fun time. It's SO beautiful on the North Shore. I got to be with my kiddos so that's always a perfect time for me. We made some great memories...





















But I didn't have time to post a few cards I made last week for some challenges, so I better get to it before they close!

I made this card for the black and white challenge at Seize the Birthday:


And for the challenge at Case this sketch:


I found some black and white patterned paper I liked and cut the shape from the sketch. Then I added the Memory Box die called, Joyful Bouquet." In the center of the flowers I used some of my new black enamel dots. I really like them, and think I will get a few more colors. The sentiment is from SU's Happiest Birthday Wishes.

Have a happy day!
