Pizza Birthday 2015

Hi everyone,
This card is for my nephew.  I found this image in my digi's from Dustin Pike, and thought it would be great for a man's card, plus it was pre-coloured which worked well with the fall colours challenge.  I thought the Pizza maker looked a little confused, so I added a message on the inside "Cake?" as if he didn't realize it was suppose to be a birthday cake.  Besides, some of us prefer pizza anyway.  My submission for challenges are:
Southern Girls Challenge: Let's Celebrate
The Paper Shelter: Challenge 223: For the Man in your Life
Craft your passion challenge 283: Anything goes
My time to Craft: challenge 306 Autumnal colours
SweetStamps:  October Anything Goes
Crafting with friends: Challenge #8 Anything goes
That's it for me tonight.  I hope to be back with some Christmas cards shortly, and maybe more birthday cards.  Thanks for stopping by.

Silver Anniversary 2015

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a silver anniversary card.  It's hard to see in the pictures, but the "love" heart is silver foil paper from a set of cards that were on special at Michaels.  I used an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions called sheet music on the pink cardstock.  The music paper is from Authentique the Irresistible Collection.  I cut the hearts using a Sizzix die and hand cut the love heart. The silver anniversary piece is Vellum,but I'm afraid I don't remember from where.  This is only my second anniversary card, and my first one I found on Google when I was trying to get ideas for this one.  I am hoping to make a similar one to this with the pieces that didn't quite work on this one.  It would be nice to have one in my pre-made stash, but with Christmas time fast approaching that may have to wait.
The challenges I am joining are the following:

Dream Valley Challenges - recipe.  My recipe is patterned paper, pink, and faux stitching.
Papertake Weekly Challenges - technique.  Embossing folder.
Sweet Stamps - anything goes.
Crafty Girls Creations - anything goes.

Congratulations to our friends on their 25th.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a good one!
