Peek-a-boo card

I made this peek-a-boo bday card today. I was just playing around and decided it would be cute.

I used plain white cs and cut two circle (not all the way around) using my nesties and extra cs to cover this section for my hinge. I added the frames using nesties as well.
The stamps : candle w/confetti, bday package and on the outside of the window I used CDS card directions and stamped "lift" are from CDS and the sentiment inside the window is from an asst I had. I just inked one side at a time. The little lift opening is from a corner of a flower punch that I had.
Happy is in the top circle(You cant really see it in the photo) and birthday is in the bottom (you can just see a little bit)
The ribbon is from Joann's.
This was a lot of fun to do once I got the cutting with the nesties part down and the possibilities are endless.

My mother's Bday card

My mothers birthday is at the end of the month and this is the card I made for her.
I had it finished last month and its been waiting patiently to be mailed out.

The stamp is Penny Black it is called "Cute" that I colored with Copics. The base is black, the pink swirl cs I had in my stash. I used my nesties Labels one and my circles (I cut in half) for my shapes. I ran the circles through with my swiss dot embossing folder. The balloons are clipart that I cut out and used liquid glaze to make them shine like real ones. I added to adhesive pearls to the frame.
