A birthday and an anniversary

I'm getting back to it! Yeah!
(Still got loads of dust, but hey! it ain't going anywhere for now)! LOL

I'm mega excited 'coz it's almost time for the new August release from Peachy Keen 
and I keep saying this, but it's TRUE....
You WILL be bowled over by cuteness!!!
There will be sneak peeks leading up to the release on Thursday evening on the ning site,
The Peachy Keen Connection.
Where there will be the usual boisterous and fun challenges and prizes,
plus the fabulous and CUTE new stamps for you to ogle.

In the meantime, here are a couple of cards I had to do for two of my sons.
Barry, my eldest had a birthday on July 25th and I made this for him...


The Chicken Wire border, sentiment and the balloons stamps are all from Clearly Besotted..
The 'Son' was cut with MFT Die-Namics 'By the letters'.

I was debating whether to draw strings on the balloons,
 but as my boy is 41, thought that might be a bit twee, so decided against it.

Now for my third son..
It's his and his wife Sara's anniversary on the 5th August and as usual, they will be in Spain on the day.
Actually, they are on their way to Heathrow as I type, so no danger of them seeing their card before the 5th!
They always put their cards in their suitcase to open on the day.

Enough waffling Viv!
Here's their card....

Memory Box Butterflies. Got this one 'coz it's gorgeous and 'coz it's called 'Vivienne'!
The sentiment is by JustRite called 'Large Fancy Sentiments'.
I CASED THIS gorgeous card by Michelle Short of  The Card Grotto.
Poor Michelle has developed pneumonia and has had to curtail her crafting for now!

Get well soon my friend!!!

It's my turn in the spotlight tomorrow on the Peachy Keen website, 
where I'll have another Peachy card to share with you.
I'd love it if you were to pop on over and give me some love.

Wonderful bday card for your son and just love the butterflies on the second card!!! How fun to go to Spain - loved my trip to the Med there years ago :)

Both cards are lovely. I never thought to cut out letters with my CB dies for a sentiment. What an excellent idea. I love the use of the chicken wire stamp too. It is a popular image right now. I need to get my mojo back myself.
