Thank You

Tonight's post is a bit of a Thank You with two inspired cards.  I received a very sweet comment saying I was an inspiration for Angela's children (you can find her blog HERE) to make birthday cards!  How great is that.  I was even more excited when I peeked at her blog and saw very cute pictures of her son and the cards.  I couldn't contain myself and rushed to show my husband.  So as my way to say Thank You, I created cards for our troops in their honor!
I tired to keep the cards simple and made one pink for a girl and blue for a boy.  The cards are also for the OWH Midweek Throwdown Going Dotty.  It's hard to see from a small view but the stars are made from dots and the ribbon has polka dots.  I hand stamped the stars to make my own playful background.  {SU Supplies: Seeing Stars 115352, SAB So Happy For You 123220, Real Red Ink 103133, Rich Razzleberry Ink 115658, Pacific Point Ink 111837, Melon Mambo Ink 115656, Pumpkin Pie Ink 105216, Crushed Curry Ink (Retired), Melon Mambo Card Stock 115320, Tempting Turquoise Card Stock 102067, Whisper White Card Stock 100730, Sponge Daubers 102892, Stampin' Dimensionals 104430}
