Today is special because it's my sister's birthday! This past Sunday was my very dear friend's birthday also, so today I will share with you the cards I made for them.
This first card is a CASE of Carrie's card here. The base is Rich Razzleberry, layered with Chocolate Chip cs and Old Olive dsp. Then comes the Pumpkin Pie cs, tied with Razzleberry 1/8" taffeta. The flowers from Bloomin' Beautiful are stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cs, colored with Blender Pens with Pie, Razzleberry and Olive inks. This is layered onto more Chocolate Chip cs. The little flower is from the Itty Bitty Punch pack, the leaf is from the 2-step Bird Punch, linen thread and a pearl. There you have it!
My sister was visiting around Thanksgiving time, and she likes to thumb through my cards and buy some off of me. Well this time all I had were the cards I intended to sell at the little gift shop I sell my cards to. Last week I found out I had made too many generic cards and needed more Christmas ones, so I kept this one out for her. She had really liked it and taken the time to look and notice the details!
 This card is for my friend of many years, and while we have been closer in years past, we have the kind of relationship where we can pick up right where we left off, even if it'd been a couple months since the last time we talked. 
The card base is Garden Green, embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. Some textured Chocolate chip, stamped with the Dot Dot Dot stamp using Early Espresso ink is under Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta. The butterfly and flower image is from Of The Earth set, colored with Regal Rose, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight markers and stamped on Very Vanilla. Round some corners, tear an edge, sponge with Crumb Cake, stamp a birthday greeting (yes, I was late in sending her the card) in Daffodil, and pop things up on Dimensionals.
Well, there you have it! A little break from Christmas cards, but don't worry- they will be back in full force tomorrow! hehe
Thanks for stopping by! ~Natalie
