Have an EGGcellent birthday!

I have a friend who is a farmer.  She and I have exchanged cow themed cards for years.  I'm running out of cow puns though, and since she also has chickens (I buy my eggs from her) I decided to go with an egg themed card.  The sentiment inside says "Have an EGGcellent birthday!"

Again, please excuse the poor photography.  I had to use the camera on my laptop.

The tag is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  The brown eggs are from Smiley Cards.  The cracked egg on the tag was cut freehand with scissors.

This card will be entered in the Skipping Stones Design's sketch challenge.

Father's Day

Tomorrow is Father's Day, so I guess it is time to make some cards!  In addition to my dad, I wanted to make one for my brother-in-law.  My sister said he was bummed when I didn't get make him a card for his birthday this year, and he and my sister are having us over for dinner on Sunday.  I thought a card with a grill would work for both men.
Please excuse the poor photography.  I don't have access to my camera and had to use the one on my laptop.

The grill is from the From my Kitchen cartridge and the circle is from Graphically Speaking.  It was run through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.
