Happy Birthday

Happy Wednesday!! I hope are having a wonderful last week of February - how is that possible??!! My gosh, this year is flying by. As you can tell, I still can't find the time to craft. There just aren't enough hours in the day. I don't know how those of you that post every day do it. And there is just no way I can keep up with Facebook either and I'm sorry about that. I'm barely keeping up with commenting. But, it's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have some birthday cards to share with you today :)


These cards are all similiar...I just used different papers from The Paper Studio's Mirabella stack.


A Die-Versions Whispers Ring of Hearts die was used as the centerpiece of the cards.


Happy and Birthday are both DV Sweet Wordlets Dies. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. DV Wee Petites Button dies were used in the center of the bows.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - February Linky
2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a wonderful week :)

A gorgeous array of cards, with beautiful papers and colors!! The flowers are beautiful as well, love the design, and all the pretties!! It is hard to keep up, I try to work way ahead, but as you said time flies and next thing you know, you are behind again..that's life for "ya" I guess..lol!! Hope you are staying warm, will we ever see Spring??

Gorgeous cards Lisa! I love that doily, and the papers and flowers that you used on each card are so very pretty!

Donna Ellis said...

Don't you just love being able to create four distinct cards using the same layout and colors, Lisa? These are beautiful, and the torn "triangular" layers look fabulous! I always enjoy the use of diagonally cut layers! Beautiful (as always) hugs, de

Robin said...

These are so beautiful! I love the colors you chose and the die is gorgeous! Hugs, Robin

Sherrie K. said...

Good Morning my friend! Wow, your cards are both beautiful! The papers are so pretty~ love the colors and the tearing of the paper. The Whispers Ring of Heart die is gorgeous and you showcased it beautifully and of course the flowers are stunning! So pretty my Lisa!

I can relate as far as not being able to keep up at times. It is touch sometimes to keep up with commenting on blogs, FB not to mention trying to craft and then there is something called life! Just do what you can and try and keep a balance...I am SURE everyone has felt this way a time or two!
Have a great day my friend! Hope its warming up a bit for you! It is suppose to be a high of 10 today...a little warmer, yeah!
Hugs,
Sherrie K

I know what you mean about time LIsa!! There are not enough hours in the day but if we had more Im sure we would just fill them too LOL!! I love love the beautiful cards!! Using the different papers gives them all such different looks, very cool! Have a blessed day my friend :)

Gorgeous!!

~Tammy~ said...

The papers are gorgeous and I like how you kept them similar, but changed out your colors/papers. Beautiful!

Beebeebabs said...

Wow absolutely beautiful - love the die and the choice of paper is perfect and beautiful flowers - another awesome creation my friend tfs

Leslee said...

Very pretty! I Like that die A lot! Never seems to be enough hours in my day, either!

Tanya~Studio 5380 said...

Good morning to you! What lovely cards you have created. The papers are so pretty, I love the floral print and distressed edges. These have such a soft, romantic feel to them - just beautiful!
I feel the same way about time flying past. I cannot believe that it is almost March - it seems like we only just celebrated Christmas.
Hope you have a wonderful day my friend!

Gwen said...

These are so beautiful! LOVE the papers you used! I know I am blown away that it is almost the end of February. I feel like I blink and a week has gone by!

Brenda said...

Beautiful and so elegant Lisa! I love the papers and flowers you have used. The sentiment mat is just so gorgeous too, love the lacy edging on it. I can't post everyday either, or craft everyday! Like you I can barely keep up with commenting and often find myself behind on that. Facebook? Forget it! I don't have time for that and when I do it is to see pictures of my grandchildren. Plus FB gets on my nerves with all the complaining and b**ching, so I just stay off which is easy since I don't have the time for it anyway. lol I can't believe how fast this year is flying by either. I so want spring/summer to arrive, but that means that the year is half over and it will be the holidays again before we know it. When did the year get so short?!!! Hugs, Brenda

Scrapper69 said...

Your cards are Gorgeous as always Lisa! I LOVE those flowers.... they're just so pretty on your cards! :) I know what ya mean by trying to keep up.... There are days were I can't either... and Facebook...ugh.. don't get me started.... I feel like I spend most days online rather than crafting..... That's why I try to comment on certain days so I can get some crafting in! :) Have a great week! :)

What a great group of cards! It would be a wonderful gift.

Time does fly by. I agree that there is not enough time in the day...to craft! :)

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Oh wow!!! All fabulous Lisa!!!! Love this style!!! The design is so gorgous!!! Beautiful colours and papers!! Great works!

Kathy Salido said...

Beautiful design on your cards. Love the paper and love the torn edge. Very soft and romantic :)

KT Fit Kitty said...

Such a beautiful set of cards, Lisa! They are all so similar yet different - love the pretty papers you used and the gorgeous flowers!

Brenda in IN said...

These are so pretty and I love the papers. I don't know how people keep up either. I am always behind on commenting. If I clean house, I don't craft. If I have to go somewhere in the car, I don't craft. If I read and comment on the blogs, I don't craft. I guess I can only do one thing at a time!

lisa808 said...

So pretty. Love the papers and shabby look.

Creations by Shirl said...

I have that paper stack too, love the pretty colors in that pad..... love those CAS cards pretty as always....

Donna K said...

No one would ever know that you have trouble keeping up, Lisa. Your creations are so wonderfully done every single time that I would never guess you are crunched for time in any manner. I love that your work is always so uplifting and full of little treasures like the flowers and torn edging on all 4 cards. I always leave you blog saying..."wow...she's done it again" Hope you have a great rest of the week. March will be here before we know it! xx Donna K

Sukie said...

Such a beautiful set of cards, those papers are simply gorgeous and I just love those flowers. Your work is so amazing and I often wonder how crafters post so many projects on their blogs and Facebook. I also have a hard time keeping up since work just gets in the way ;) I do appreciate you taking the time to leave such sweet comments on my blog. Hope you are having a great week!

jimlynn said...

Both of the patterned papers you used are smashing! LOVE these cards and the design you used too Lisa. You just always amaze me when I'm here. Gorgeous cards!
I hear you loud and clear about not enough hours in the day. It's so hard to keep up with everything and there's no end in sight either. Hope things slow down for you soon.

Hi Lisa,
This is Outrageously BEAUTIFUL, Elegant & STUNNING! The ribbons & flowers are GORGEOUS!!
So, I agree with you with how the days have gone by so fast. I am taking about 2 days a week and commenting. I have noticed that since I comment on both blogs & FB , the comments on my blog have been less than usually. I am checking up on FB for DT purposes and commenting on those that do not have a blog. But I will be going back to the way I used to do because it is becoming a job..LOL!
Thank you for stopping by and ALWAYS leaving me all that love!!
Have a wonderful day my fabulous friend,
M'

Just popping by, Lisa, to wish you a wonderful week-end! xo

MaryH said...

Lisa, I'm always impressed with how much you post, comment & FB too, because I have enough trouble just keeping up with commenting. And you enter challenges too! So I think you're doing terrific already. Loving this pretty card. I especially like the torn paper on the pretty dp...adds lots of texture-looks so very vintage. Love the cream die cut as the focal image, and of course, your gorgeous flowers! Hang in there, TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

Kate said...

These are so pretty, Lisa! I love the colour combination that you've used - and the flowers and ribbon are just gorgeous!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
