Make it Monday #119

I absolutely loved this week's Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink.  The flag style banners introduced by Dawn McVey were so fun.  They were a perfect excuse to pull out my 6x6 paper pads and I made 2 different cards, one feminine and one masculine.

On this first one, I used the beautiful My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Tangerine collection.  My PTI addition was the place card and butterfly from Places, Please and the sentiment from the Tiny Treats: Birthday Stamp Set.  This will be my birthday card to my niece.

My second card uses Basic Grey Marrakech papers and a Jillibean Soup Happy Birthday label.  I also added some white enamel dots from the My Minds Eye Kate & Co Oxford collection.  I think they are the first ones I have seen in white.

This card is for my son.  I can't believe he is 12 already!  His birthday is today, but he is currently at Boy Scout summer camp. We celebrated Friday, but I sent a care package with this card so that he has something to open on his actual birthday.  I put some money in it so that he can get himself an ice cream treat at the Trading Post!

I kept my cards very close to what Dawn did on her examples.  However, I have seen some wonderful variations in the Make it Monday #119 gallery.  Go check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love how you've included cards for both guys and gals, Lawrie. I really like the way you used the Places, Please die and stamps for the sentiment panel. What a great idea!!
