Ice Cream and Gifts...CAS(E) this Sketch #67

Wednesday, March 12 - and I have a Skype phone call date with a certain 'little man' who's turning TWO today!!  While I'm waiting for him to get his jammies on and settle in bed for us to 'talk', I have time for an ultra quick post.

With birthdays on my mind of late - my nephew's today, my niece's last week - and the 'family celebration' for both this weekend (yes, yes..excitement is approaching 'high' on the scale...), it's little wonder that my cards reflect things birthday themed.

Two tag cards, with two tags on each, inspired by the charming sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #67 (please, go check out the DT inspiration and the entries so far...amazing!!)


The first features my brand new Uniko "A Gift for You" present, bow and sentiment stamp (such a darling set!).  I'm not sure the photo is clear enough, but if you look closely, you'll see plenty of sparkle: Wink of Stella on the bow, and stickles on the polka dots.

The second is my ice cream cone tag and die from MCT...so wonderful to bring it out for a play date.

Another round of "simple"; in real life, they're rather cute....


Time to chat with Mr. Nephew...two...wow...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  11. Both are adorable, Carol! I know little missy will appreciate hers--not sure the little man is up to that yet, except he sure does know & love his Auntie C! Would love to have been a mouse (eek!--not really!) in the room so I could see that Skype call! Have a wonderful trip!

  17. Hello Carol - ADORABLE tags! Love all the layering on these. I usually only make tags for Christmas but everyone seems to be making such cute ones lately - I might have to give it a shot.
