Wishing You a Very Happy Birthday

Good morning everyone :)  I have two cards for you today as I could not decide which room to use as inspiration for the Viva La Verve sketch this week.  Amber has been killing me lately with over the top gorgeous rooms.  So even with the little stamping time I've had lately, I just had to spend last Saturday making these :)  This first room grabbed me with those fabulous zebra chairs and leaf wallpaper....
Then came this card inspired by that gorgeous gray room with pops of rich colour...I don't usually say "gorgeous" and "grey"' together...and usually try to get rid of anything grey whether it's in my laundry or on my head!! LOL...but look at that room!!

The chair in the bottom righthand corner made me think of a damask design, hence the kiwi coloured damask panels...then pops of the other colours as well.  I traded the two little panels in the sketch for big bows...can you blame me?  I had some hot pink silk ribbon and had to use it after seeing the pops of raspberry in the photo :)  Two more days to go and then another weekend.  It's been a busy work week again...Open House last night at school, meeting lots of wonderful parents and a dinner meeting tonight.  But it's all good :)  Hope your week is going well, thanks for stopping by today :)

Oooh Diva lovin' the animal print on your first card :D
Ribbon treatment on the last one is too drool over - that bow is divine!
Nearly the weekend - woot!

I thought of you when I saw that Zebra pattern because I remember you using that DP once before. Fabulously done! As for the grey room, you aced that one as well! The damask is perfect!

I'm tired out just reading all you have going on at school, never mind the fact you are meeting all new parents (i.e. no sibling returns). Hang in there, Friday is a coming!!

Love the colour combo on the first card, and I love the zebra print too!! I hear you about little time for crafting now that school's back in full swing. I've gone back teaching part-time (since my Mat leave), and I'm still so busy!!
