Happy birthday x2!

Today is my teammate (from the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge) Rachel's birthday and the other team members and I wanted to do something special for her. If you haven't visited her blog, you should check it out, she is very talented!  She makes a lot of cards---and let me tell you, even though sometimes cards look easy to make, they are so, so hard for me to do, so I admire all cardmakers!

Tomorrow is also a special day for someone close to mom! So I made her a card, too :) She is a wonderful mom and has always been so very supportive of me and my art, even driving me down to a workshop in North Carolina recently!

Here are my birthday cards:

Credit for the top card actually goes to my friend Chris, a Stampin' Up demonstrator who gives wonderful workshops where we create a mix of cards that she has pre-designed for us. I just love the ombre fringe effect.

And of course the mixed-media one is mine. I tried to keep it simple, which is the hardest part for me, I just want to keep layering things on.

You probably came here from Donna's blog, but if not, feel free to head over there and/or the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog for more projects and links.
If you want to continue the birthday blog hop, then hop on over to the other Lynn--Lynn K's blog for another project.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Awesome card Lynn! I love the fringe on that first one, makes me want to pull out my scissors that do that and use them again! The second one is a great mixed media card - love the colors and the background!

Love both of you cards Lynn. I'm especially fond of the mixed media card! Happy Birthday to Rachel and your Mom!!

Lovely cards Lynn but the 2nd is my fave. It's just stunning (and uses one of my favorite color combinations).
