Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday!  April brings lots of birthdays for me.  Let's see, my newest nephew, Jeremy turned one on April 13; my internet friend, Pat, has a birthday on April 15 and my sister in law has a birthday on April 25.  I know I'm forgetting some of my scrapping buddies from the group and I apologize.  It feels kind of wierd, I haven't made anything since the last day of March.  Getting ready for the family for Easter get together, migraine this week; I just didn't have it in me.

Again, I hate, hate my camera.  No matter what setting, close up, far away, blinds open, blinds closed, lights on, lights off, you get the idea, my colors never come out right.  You can't even see the shadow around the letters and the yellow glittered cardstock.  Maybe I can sell a few more things on Ebay and buy a nice camera.  I can wish!

This card is for the Squigglefly challenge - SFC1412 Orange you Glad I didn't say Banana?  So, this week's Squigglefly challenge is called "Orange you glad I didn't say Banana?" You can participate in this week's challenge using ANY of THESE THREE options:
1) you can either use the color scheme orange and yellow on your card; or
2) you can use any PUNNY joke/saying on your card; or
3) use any fruit themed image or embellishment on your card

Guess which one I used?  Yep, number 1. 

Here's my two alternative cards:  BTW, all the cards were made with scraps and left overs!
Here's what I used:
Chinese Characters: Happy Birthday image by Fawn Palmer - Squigglefly

Well, now I'm off to work on my nephew's card for his first birthday.  I'll post it later!
Thanks for stopping by!
