Happy Birthday!

Hi, Friends!

Popping in today to share with you two birthday cards that I made for December birthdays.  The first one is for my sis, Lucretia, and the second one is for my friend, Peggi.

For the above card I used Mama Elephant poinsettia images and colored them with copics.  The birthday sentiment is from PI.  The scalloped background panel was die cut using a die from Mama Elephant.  Gems to finish the card. 

Next up is the birthday card for Peggi...

For this card, I used poinsettia images from Altenew.  The same birthday sentiment from PTI.  The scalloped oval die is from Paper Sweeties.  I have mixed feelings about this card since I had a smudge of gold on the side of the card.  I thought...really?!  So, I thought ok, what would Maria do?  Uh huh, Maria always adds on, lol!  So, I tried to make it look like it was intended to have an artsy look to it.  I think I like it the more I stare at it.  What do you think? 

Ok, that's all for today.  I'm not sure if I'll be posting anymore before Thanksgiving, so I wish for you all a very blessed Thanksgiving with your families and friends!  Thanks so much for visiting here today!  It's appreciated!  Take care!



  1. It's artsy & beautiful, Maria! I also adore the first card--so beautifully colored! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Beautiful cards and a great rescue job there to make a unique and oh so pretty card!

  3. Poinsettias are wonderful for birthday cards as well as Christmas cards too! Wonderful coloring and embossing on both. I wish you and yours a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving too :)

  4. I love the colors you used on your sister's card. They are lovely together. I think the extra gold just added more interest and color to Peggi's card. I think she will love it. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too, Maria. Enjoy the day.

  5. Both are beautiful. So refreshing to see poinsettias for a birthday card.
