Two cards for two dear friends!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 12:00 AM
**Long post, scroll all the way down for my second card**

Good morning! I have had a rough week. My son has been really sick and has been home the majority of the week. He has a really bad ear infection, which ended up rupturing his eardrum on Tuesday. Talk about scary! :( He's doing better though. Hopefully in 2 weeks when I take him for a check-up, it's healing right.

I made this card the day before I left for CHA. I gave it to Diana.. boy did we sure have a Magnolia-licious Party alright! I cannot even begin to describe how much I enoyed the mini vacation!

I just LOVE these new stamps. Birthday's are all year and I will have no problem grabbing these cuties over and over again to make a card! Do you see the Loving Border coming down under the flowers. I LOVE that corner stamp! This card is for the Just Magnolia Challenge, we have a sketch by Mina and it's a fun one! I hope you will join us this week!

Angie isn't allowed on my blog until she gets her card in the mail! LOL I was trying to get her goodies mailed so she could have them by her Birthday, but with my son being sick it was difficult. As all of you know I LOVE pink and frilly, girly stuff. Angie really likes the deeper tones I really hope she likes her card, what do all of you think?

This card is also for Fussy and Fancy, Our theme over there is Something Sweet.

Mindy, both your cards are beautiful! I love the glittery accents on both cards - perfect for bdays! Awesome color scheme on both, I can't choose which I like better! :) I wish you'd do a tutorial on how you color. I'd love to see your method. Really beautiful work!
hugs, Angela
(ps) hope your son feels better soon

Love your cards Mindy. I'm team pink, girlie and glitter I think but both are lovely.
Sorry to hear that your son has been ill, hopefully he's on the mend now.
Happy Crafting, Julie Ann
