Sugar Nellie, Poppy

Good day,
Another card for you today.  I love Sugar Nellie images and it's been awhile since I coloured one up so I thought I would use "Poppy" today.   I went with red and am happy with the result.   I think this is one of my favourite colour combinations.

Happy Birthday Mike

Today is Mike's birthday and we celebrated at our house yesterday. The girls still had lots of energy, even after a morning of skiing.  Oh to be so young!   

I was looking for a snowboarder digi but had no success and settled on Mo Mannings "Mr. Fixit" , which fits Mike perfectly!

Twisted Papers

I know, 2 posts in 1 day...whew I've been busy! (lol)
Here is Tom's birthday card.   I love "Twisted Paper" for those hard to find images and felt this works so well for Tom because of his and Julies' love of birds.   Hope he likes it.
