Ahhhh, Saturday evening!

I hope all is well with my friends in blog land!  Chad and I are hanging at Dunkin Donuts, waiting for the sock hop to be over so we can pick up the younger DD, while we dropped the older DD off at a friend's house a couple of hours ago.  Ahhh, the teen years!  :)

Well, I logged in here tonight to share some recent birthday cards with you:

The first one was made for my friend Sheila, and was "pinspired" by this card.  The second card was made for another coworker's birthday on the same day as Sheila's.  It's inspiration came from Pinterest too, but not any one specific card.  The last one was made by request for my friend Roxanne's sister's birthday.  She wants to pay me for it, and I was gonna charge $4.00.  Think that's fair?  I welcome any opinions on that!  The MS butterflies are punched out of purple cardstock and topped with vellum, in case you were wondering.  The swirls are from a Darice embossing folder, and "painted" with Stickles.  THAT took the better part of an evening, lemme tell ya!  :)  Worth it in the end though, I think!  The colors in the pic look like they don't match, but IRL, they do.  :)
Well, thanks for stopping by and havin' a look!
Take Care,
ETA:  I just found this challenge:  Crafting for all Seasons.  They are looking for dies and punches this week, and all of my cards qualify; but as they are in one post, I'm pretty sure it'll only count as one entry.  Linking up anyway!  :)
