Radom Thoughts for August

Yesterday we celebrated the grandbaby's first birthday.  I've mentioned a couple of times that my two daughters gave up scrapbooking/cardmaking and gave me their stash.  So, good mom that I am, I made a couple of birthday cards for their niece, with the product they gave me--thinking, it's their style, as if they had made the cards themselves.

DD1:  Heidi Grace products--rub-ons

DD2's card; brown cardstock; patterned papers from a pack called Jeweled Tones Modern' Heidi Grace epoxy cupcake sticker.  Sticker might be from DD1's stash, but DD2 is the cupcake baker.

While blog surfing today:

I did the Case Study blog hop.  At one of the dt blogs, I spied this challenge, so I'm submitting these cards to FLOURISHES: Birthday Party--create anything birthday

and I nearly fell out of my chair when I stopped by Heartwarming Vintage/Crafty Secrets and saw THIS!
