Another 2 for 1 Day!

Hi, everyone!

Hope everyone's having a great weekend!

It's a cloudy day here with some must-see television viewing for golf fans. Translation: This is some prime cardmaking time!

Today's Cards

This year, I've tried to make an Any Hero card for every OWH Sunday sketch. But, when I saw today's sketch, I immediately thought of a masculine birthday card with 5 candles. (Maybe the card I made for hubby yesterday was still mulling around in my brain...)

So, what's a girl to do? That's easily answered -- make two cards! :)

Parting Thoughts

Hoping to work on a card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a card with numbers. Should be easy for someone who's spent a life in mathematics education, right?

Have a wonderful week. Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!

Both your cards are great takes based on the sketch! The birthday candles are genius!

Wow Sybrina, I love how you've interpreted the 5 strips... the candles are genius! What a great idea to make a card for the challenge and one extra as a Any Hero card. Thanks so much for playing!

I love the candle card! Both are great! The embossing is a nice touch!

Fantastic job. I love the candles.

JoAnn Ross said...

How clever are those candles? And I really like how you dry embossed every other one!

And that's a wonderful idea to make an any hero card with all the challenges! I need to do that, as well.

What a great idea to turn those 5 little papers into candles! Thank you for sharing.

Wow, two cards in one day and one challenge! I love it when a sketch speaks to us. Great use of your papers, totally different feels. Nice job!

Joan K said...

Both really nice cards! I love the birthday idea with the 5 rectangles - might CASE this one!

Barbara said...

Your cards came out really nice! Loved both themes.
