Happy Birthday!

August is a busy birthday month for our family - my sweet little girl will be turning three in less than a week (eek! where has the time gone?!), and my hubby will be celebrating his birthday as well (age will remain a secret to protect the innocent...hehehe).  In honor of their birthday, I decided to post some birthday cards, one of which is for my hubby.  Hopefully, he won't see this until after his birthday...

Here's my hubby's birthday card.  I used Waltzingmouse's sketch challenge #9.  I'm really loving these sketches...they're refreshingly unique.

Here's a card I created for Embellish's July 30th challenge:

And here's one last one for SCS CAS78 - the theme was Polka Dots:

That's it for well,
