Only one day off...

I had such a short weekend. I signed up to work my Saturday off because with the incentive pay added to the overtime, it was too hard to pass it up.  It will help pay for my last order from PapertreyInk since it was a big one. That only left me with today off.  I'll survive.

I have lots of February birthdays in my family and am starting to run a bit low for cards so I wanted to be sure to make some that would work for males or females.  I then decided that an extra Thank You would be handy, too. Both cards are PTI products except for some PP scraps that I used in the Thank You card. 

 Wishing You a Happy Birthday:  I just love the Turning a New Leaf PP and think it makes for some excellent "neutral" type cards (meaning it can be easily turned into a card for a male or female).  I was very pleased at how well the Terracotta Tile color went with the colors in Turning a New Leaf.  I will certainly pair those colors again.
 
Thank You card: I had a single smallish piece of this green and blue plaid PP sitting in a bag of scraps and it was just enough to punch some circles and match it with some Aqua Mist and Spring Moss scraps.  The tree and sentiment are from Through the Trees stamp set and the ribbon is the new narrow silk ribbon that PTI carries then colored with my Copic Marker color YG93.  It came out spectacular!  I am so excited that I can color this ribbon to match anything in which I have a Copic to match!  It was quick and easy to do, too!

I'd love to hear what you think...

Both cards are lovely- in a non-gender specific way! I haven't colored ribbon with my copics yet, I really need to, beautiful results!

Two great cards! The tree in the second is too cute. Love the silk ribbon you've colored with Copics. I've yet to try this but certainly will.
