More August Birthday Cards

This has been a month filled with birthdays, so I've been creating quite a few cards and have a couple to share today.

This first card features mainly Prima products--papers, flowers, chipboard.  The tag, pearls and trim are from Recollections.  The doily is Martha Stewart, butterfly is K&Co, and the smile charm is Making Memories.  I made this card for a dear friend's granddaughter who I just love to pieces.

 This next card I put together in a hurry for a co-worker's birthday.  I'm not sure if the pattern paper is Prima or maybe Webster's Pages as it was given to me.  I do know the layered flower and butterfly are Prima, the rhinestones are Recollections, and the tag is Martha Stewart.  The brad used for the flower is from Bazzill.  The tag can be removed to use as a bookmark or for something else.

My sweet little Maltese (Jasper) just came over and curled up next to my arm as I'm sitting on the sofa writing this post.  Little things like this just melt my heart!  I'll be back at the end of the week with more birthday cards.  It's been quite awhile since I've done a layout, so I'm kind of getting an urge to try my hand at one again.  We'll see.  Have a wonderful week!
