Happy Birdie 2 Ways

Today, two very important people in my life celebrate birthdays. First up, my mom, who has a significant numbered birthday. This is her card:

I know this isn't really a feminine card, but owls remind me of growing up in the '70s, and 70 is a rather big number, right, Mami?

Next up, my husband. He is on his way to Atlanta right now for a conference, so I tucked this card into his briefcase before he left this morning.

I took a page out of what I call Krystie Lee's Big Bl Book of Stamping Ideas to make this one. I needed simple and easy, and I think I pulled it off. The golf ball is an embossed piece of paper, punched out and turned over. And the golf tee? It is this stamp, trimmed down. Easy and fun. I hope my husband likes it.

Have a wonderful day! BTW, I'm going to go ahead and link both of these over on the Moxie Fab World blog for the Fun & Cute cards challenge.
