Birthday, birthday and a 3rd birthday!

Hi there,
It's been a couple weeks since I have been able to post anything. So much has happened but I won't go into all the details. First, a gall bladder attack - had to have that removed - ugh! 10 days later some major dental work. I think my body is in shock and needs to rest & relax. Needless to say, hardly any time spent in the craft room.
Before all this happened, I did have some birthdays coming up and had the cards ready to go. So this will be my post for today.

Pattern papers are from the Melissa Frances line The Sweet Life as is the journaling card. The yellow ribbon is from Papertrey Ink and the button is out of my stash.

These 2 cards were made for my great niece and nephew whose birthdays were Feb 4th.The stamp set is from Stampin Up.  I stamped the white cardstock with a candle repeatedly to make a background. Then adhered the stamped sentiment on top of ribbons and cardstock banners with pop up dots. I stamped the sentiment twice, in yellow, then fussy cut the 'celebrate banner' and adhered it over the sentiment with a couple pop up dots. Unfortunately I was not able to make their birthday celebration so these will be mailed.
I'm working on another pocket mini album with a Valentines Day theme. Love making these little albums. Hopefully it will be done in time to give to some special person on Valentines Day.
Enjoy the rest of your week ahead~
