July 25, 2009 Birthday Cards For Two Special Kids In Our Lives...

Happy Birthday To You! (I wish I could type in little music notes...)

This card was especially made for Luca's little friend Nicholas V. Tonight he is celebrating his last birthday here in Italy, as he is moving back to the United States with his family in just a few weeks. The cake expresses it best- in the colors of the Italian and American flags.

Just remember that each is a part of you, Nicholas! We will miss you, and we hope you have a wonderful and memorable birthday!!

By the way, have I recently mentioned how much I enjoy polka dots?

Best Wishes... For Isabella S.

This cut was made from wrapping paper. I loved the pattern on it, and just had to use it for something special. Wrapping paper tends to leave more rough edges and snags more because it is a delicate paper to cut into, but it turned out pretty well.

Happy Birthday, Isabella!

Both cards are brighter in person, by the way. If you would like to see them a little closer, just click on the image.
