Spring is in the air well maybe not here but some place not too far away. I bring up spring as that is what the kit that Mary sent us reminded me of. So many cute things that I will save for a rainy day. Today I had to not only create these cards but start getting my things together for my vacation that starts on Friday. The kit worked beautifully for both the birthday card for my brother in law and also the anniversary card for my dad.

This is the kit Mary sent us.

Here are my cards for this months card club kit.

First is the birthday card. I used a new Tim Holtz mini cupcake stamp which I stamped twice. I cut out the cupcake, colored it and used pop dots to make it stand out.  I also distressed all my edges then used distress ink to make everything pop off the brown and blue background.

My final card I used the PTI anniversary stamp. This is becoming a favorite. I topped it off with the hearts Mary included in the kit but I inked them a really pretty brighter fuchsia.  It was very hard for me not to distress this card as well but I wanted a softer feel.

 I hope you enjoyed my cards this month. Remember to go visit the other blogs to check out what everyone has created.
