Build a (quick) birthday....

Hi Everyone.... I'm back!!  Did you miss me?  We have had school holidays, and I've been away from my craft desk, visiting parents, lots of friends for play dates for the children, and tripping interstate to catch up with life long friends to celebrate our mutual '0' birthdays.
Anyway, sat down tonight, and whipped these two cards up.   Literally, maybe 5 minutes each.  Not much technically to them, but sometimes, a super easy and quick card is what you need.
The first is for TGIF

And the second is for CAS Colours and Sketches

Don't you love the little bit of added detail at the bottom of each card with the scored lines, highlighted by the pearls?
Stamp Set: Build a Birthday
Colours: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Smokey Slate, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo
Other: Basic Pearls, scoring blade on my trimmer.
Happy Stamping.... Manda xx


  1. Who wouldn't love this cake for their Birthday?! A fabulous use f the colors and the little details really make the card!

  2. The cake looks great in both color versions! I'm glad this past week's colors from CC&S inspired you. Thanks for playing along with us.
    (P.S. It's been one of those days where I can't remember whether or not I left a comment when I was looking at your card earlier - so if you end up with two comments from me, well, then, BONUS! LOL)

  3. Fabulous cake! And yes I agree sometimes the simplest quickest cards turn out to be the most satisfying. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

  4. I need to deploy some techniques for creating quick cards. Sometimes I can spend a couple of hours just on one card from thought process to the finished article! Thanks for joining us at CC&S this week. Stef x

  5. Sometimes simple really is best. These cards are super cute! Thanks so much for joining us at TGIFC!

  6. Love the simple beauty of this card. Thanks for playing along with the TGIFC this week. XO
