Birthday cards

Hello, friends! I have a couple cards to share again today. I thought I'd share a couple birthday cards that I made recently. The first one was for my husbands birthday last month. I had just gotten the Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge, so decided to use it to make his card:
I wish I'd taken a picture of the inside before I'd written in it, because it had a candle that matches the cake.


My second card is for my sister's birthday next week. Although she hasn't received it yet, I feel pretty comfortable posting it, as I'm quite sure she doesn't visit my blog.

My husband and I are being pretty lame this Christmas. Since he and I are both so into our hobbies, and it is nearly impossible to shop for each other, we just set an amount to spend, and bought our own gifts this year. We did buy each other one medium sized surprise gift. Then last weekend we ruined that, when I had the bright idea that we write down our gifts to each other, then wrap it up, and we sat there and unwrapped our written gifts, since they had not been delivered yet. I know! We are so bad!
Anyway, most of my Christmas money was spent at Papertrey Ink. I placed two different orders. The first one arrived on Saturday, so I used my new goodies to make my sister's birthday card, which I honestly think may be my favorite card I've ever made!
Supplies: (All Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise noted)
Paper- Raspberry Fizz and Hawaiian Shored
Stamps- Damask Designs and Fillable Frames #4
Other- border die, Fillable Frames #4 die, ribbon, Memento Ink, Kaisercraft gems

I hope she will like it, but even more so, I hope I can get the darn thing in the mail to her on time for a change! For being a card maker, I am the absolute worst at actually getting cards to people, especially on time!
My Papertrey Ink Christmas order #2 is waiting for me at home today, so I should have more nice cards to share with you very soon! I'm so excited to go home and play!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs to you!
Jess
