Birthday x2

Hi folks!

Feels like it's been forever since I've posted a card -- and today I have two!

We celebrated two family birthdays last weekend. First up: my aunt. Here's her card:

I managed to make this whole card with stuff that was already sitting on my desk, which doesn't say nearly as much about my design abilities as it does the amount of crapola that was on my desk! I had plenty of stuff to choose from, that's for sure :). What made the cut: a bit of kraft cs I'd used to test out an impression plate from Papertrey Ink...several months ago. A bunch of scraps and bits and bobs...and a little stamping, too.

Birthday #2 was for my cousin. Here's her card:

Anyone wanna guess how old she is? ;)
Another card from scraps, although this time the scraps are a little newer -- floral paper from Echo Park, spotty paper from Crate Paper, another die-cut that was just laying there, and one of my new My Mind's Eye stamps for the bg. Quick and cheerful.

Well, that's about all from me for now. Saturday is the last official meet-up for scrap league at Scrappy Chic, so I'm busy packing up goodies for that. It's about time for new DT kits there, too -- and whoa, man, they're gonna be something else! I've lost count of all the new stuff that's shown up in the store this past month.

Also, I just kinda realized that my blog birthday (never did really like the non-word "blogiversary." Not that "blog" is much realer, but whatever)...where was I? Oh, yeah -- the 9th. I'll have been blogging for a whole stinkin' year. I'm thinking a giveaway of some kind. Are you up for that? Maybe all you stalkers out there (and I know who you are, Fawn and Kim!) might actually drop me a line if there might be some goodies on the other end of it!

So, stay tuned for that. For now, I'm out!

Enjoy yourselves, wherever you may be.

Love your cards, it's so much fun to use up those scraps and make something so lovely! I'm afraid to go near Scrappy Chic for a while, don't think my credit card could handle it! :) Congrats on your blog anniversary!

Great cards! I usually make my cards from scraps since I can't bare to cut a 12x12 for just a little piece :) Love the mix of colors and patterns on the 20 card!

I have my dates all crazy! I thought that next week was the last week. Alain is out of town next weekend so I wan thinking of coming over to crop! Maybe you will want to crop anyway :)

I heard your card stash was started to get jealous of your scrapbook! These are both great--I love the background stamp on the 2nd one (and on yellow...interesting) and that fun and funky star on the first one!

Ang, you made these from scraps? I don't believe it. ;) These are both awesome. I love how that star is tucked into the glittery strip. The papers are all drool-worthy and I need to play with my new numbered dies!

Dear Angela, Hello! Just wanted to say "happy blogiversary" to you and let you know I have been a huge fan of you and your blog for the past year - I read you ALL THE TIME!! I always look forward to all your new great ideas and your friendly way you present yourself. Plus I love seeing your projects in person when I get the chance to come visit Scrappy Chic, my most favorite store, every so often. AND I love that you are a schoolteacher because both my parents were teachers and that's what I always wanted to be! Hope I can meet you in person sometime and looking forward to your blogging year #2! Thanks for making my scrappy day!! Best wishes from a fellow scrapper, Cathy C.

Oh my goodness!! I am a stalker!! I confess! I appreciate your creativity and have checked out other links on your blog. Good ideas lead to other good ideas...Love your work, your typewriter, sewing machine and that hand held thing that will press letters onto the sticky strip for a quick journal. Totally unique. See you in the a.m.

A year of blogging... happy blog birthday! These cards are both a lot of fun. I guess when you're 20 you don't mind having it in great big numbers on the card front! :P
