Happy Birthday KCC!

Hello Everyone!

Today's post comes to you from the Krazy Crafting Crew Blog Hop!  We are celebrating our birthday/anniversary and are so excited you could join us :)  I've been having so much fun with this group of crafters - they're so creative and inspiring!!

If you came here from Jamie's blog at Jamie Lindstrom Designs, then you're in the right place!

For my project, I decided to make a couple of birthday cards.  I recently returned from the Close to My Heart Convention in Disneyworld after staying an extra week with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my birthday.  SOOOOO much fun!!  ANYWAY ...

At Convention, we were given a number of projects to make using the new product that will be released on August 1.  Weeeeellllll, I very rarely get all of the make and takes completed because I'm having too much fun meeting new people and catching up with old friends.  This time was no different.  I think I only finished one project that we were given while I was there -- had a blast though!

So, the birthday cards I am showing you today came from one of the make and takes we were given that I didn't do!

I really like these cards because I think they are more "masculine" than I usually make and so would work really well for male friends' birthdays -- don't you think?

I used a number of products that will be released on August 1:  Spinner Cards, Heartfelt Birthday Wish stamp set, Bronze Shimmer Trim, Laughing Lola and ProPlayer paper packs.  Just LOVE the way they all work together!

Now hop on over to Janet's blog over at Janet's Creative World to see the next KCC's creation.
