Phindy's Place Friday Challenge #8 - Birthday Challenge

 Happy Happy Friday!!!
I am so glad that this has been a short week for me, even though I really lacked the crafting mojo that I needed!  LOL

So today I'm going to be showing you 2 cards that I made for todays challenge.  The challenge this week over on Phindy's Friday Challenge is "Birthdays" 

So without all the chatter, I'll try to keep this post short and sweet....

My first card was created using one of Phindy's Retro images, called "Jacks"  I LOVE the image, but for some reason I just couldn't wrap my head around it, and make it work for me....  Another day I'm sure I'll be fine, but at the last minute last night, I decided to give my birthday card for today another try.  Which you will see on the 2nd card.

Here goes nothing!  LOL

I think the biggest problem with this one is that I REALLY REALLY wish I hadn't colored that background yellow... Or at least NOT THAT bright yellow.  What a dork I can be sometimes. 

I absolutely loved using the greens & blues for this one though.

But okay, since I had to make just one more because I just wasn't comfortable with the previous one.  I went with a girlish type of card.

Pinks, Purples, and Greens....  I used "Bare Bottom Baby" and isn't she cute???

Yes Yes, I do believe I like this one better.  She sure looks like she's up to a little bit of mischief doesn't she?

So there you have it, my crafting boo boo's and my next attempt at something better.  ha ha....

Hey, at least I showed my yuck one... LOL  But for Pete Sake Don't show it around... ha ha

The rest of the DT has done fabulous work, so if you have some time, stop by and give them a little love.  Links are below...

NOW..... I have a job for you....  Don't worry, it's an easy one!!!

We would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see you participate in our Birthday challenge this week.  Come on, Birthdays!!!!!  Can it possibly be any easier???

Thanks for stopping by today, and I wish you all a WONDERFUL Weekend!

Both cards are WONDERFUL and I LOVE your coloring. I understand though, that sometimes, at the 11th hour, we do just one more thing-then wish we hadn't. Can I tell you how many times I've down this?! My solution-"cut it out"-literally.

Hi Lynda well I don't think your mojo went far because these are two superb cards the images and colours you have used are just perfect.

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who is my own worst critic! I do the same thing ALL the time. But, I have to tell you I love them both! I like the bright yellow, and the blues together are perfect! The pink cutie is adorable too! hugz, Mary
