Birthday gift cards!

This morning I had a few mins to play in my stamp room so I decided to do some warm up cards. I just made 2 3x3 cards using some of my $ spot stamps from the big M. I am pleased with them and they were super quick to make.

On the brown one I used my gel pen and added some faux stitching around my focal image, amazingly enough I do not think I have ever tried faux stitching but I like the way it looks so I will be using it more. I also scalloped the edges of the designer paper with my corner rounder!! this is super cool that I can use mine for this! I just love the way it looks. The 2nd card I also used the corner rounder and some paper flowers I got from walmart, I got 8 on a sheet for .97! I got vanilla, tempt tuq., summer sun, and pink passion. the colors match up very very good! and they already have a sticky back so you don't have to worry about that. they were not with the scrap booking stuff in my store though, they were right above the ribbon with the little ribbon roses and stuff. Hopefully I will get a chance to play tonight when I get home from work. I am having a going out in style party tonight with a few great ladies so hopefully that will turn out well!! We are making 5 cards and matching envelopes using retiring sets and I will have some of my retiring sets up for sale as well!! I know we will all have fun!!

These are really cute! Those flowers are a great find. I'll have to see what my wal-mart has since we don't have JoAnn's or Michael's here (feeling sorry for myself). :)
