This first card was inspired by Monique Griffith Designs Blog Post back on March 29th, and I thought I'd give it a go. I was worn out after folding all that paper, so my center cut wasn't too elaborate. I'll be trying it again to see if I can perfect it a little better.

More celebrations = More cards
It was a busy weekend, filled with celebrating not one, but FIVE birthdays!!! A few of them were overdue celebrations, but it's never too late to show someone you care, and are thinking of them, right?!?!
The next card was another attempt at incorporating buttons (the newest addition to my craft craze). If I had more time, I think I would have used a bigger base card, and had a bigger balloon bouquet, but I like it.
The third card was for my oldest niece, Sophia, who turned 8 in February (yeah, this one was REALLY late). I'm in love with the Create A Critter cart, and thought this one was just perfect for a young girl.
Using the same cart (Create A Critter), I made my youngest nephew a card for his 4th Birthday (just around the corner).
And lastly, my husbands step-dad, my son's Peppere birthday card...it's simple, semi-manly (LOL) and it gets the point across. The Celebrations cart was used to create both the words & party hat!
I know the quality of photos is lacking in this post, but when it's 12:45 a.m., and you've got an alarm (my toddler) that is set to go off around 6:30 a.m., you'll take what you can get! Happy Crafting, and thanks for coming by!!!
