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! :)

Distress Ink core paper; Cuttlebug embossing folder

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'!

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!

Fantastic job. I love the candles.

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.
