2 cards and a pool party!

We spent Friday and Saturday working on the house, we got a lot of stuff moved into the rooms that are finished. So today I wanted to rest, I made 2 cards and then we went to a pizza/pool party at Paul and Natalie's so we could all visit with Uncle Ken before he had to leave to go home.  Jack had fun swimming with Jason and all of the other kids, then ate pizza and lots of sweets. Then Jack played air hockey with Gracie.  The kids had fun playing on the pool cover before it was opened up.

Onto the cards:

The first card I made is just really simple, I embossed 2 lines on both sides, put gold shimmer ink on them and added a pretty sticker to the card and then a sentiment.

This next card is for the cute critters club challenge to make a Christmas card using pink and red.  The paper looks light pink and dark pink but I swear it is red and pink.
