Happy Birthday Cute Card Thursday!

Exciting things going on over at Cute Card Thursday today! It is our first birthday!
We have a special sketch to follow designed by super talented Katharina and it is also a Celebration theme!
*****************
We decided to give CCT a face lift for our birthday! Lynn and Jo from Siggi Shop have been working so hard all week to make the blog look super duper for today! Well, it is only right that it dresses up for its birthday!
We have an amazing line up of prizes from our fabulous sponsors

I just had to make one of these special book cards for my son's birthday. He loves to go ski-ing so this Edwin was just perfect!
Katharina's sketch is a dream to use and take a look at the rest of the DT cards they all look so different, it is amazing how many ways you can use the same sketch. Must admit I did switch the image and the sentiment around to suit my purpose!
We have a very special Guest designer this week, lovely Marlene returns for one week only with a beautiful card! We were thrilled when she agreed to return for our bithday week!
I kept the inside very similar to the last one I made, just added a sweet little verse and this time I left the jelly beans uncovered as I really like the colours! I used the little pocket to add some cash and my son's eyes lit up and he announced it was cool!
Of course, now all the kids have spotted this, they all want a little pocket in their card with some cash in! I've really started something now!

Supplies: DP ~ Basic Grey 'Archaic'
Stamps ~ Magnolia 'Edwin ski-ing', Basic Grey 'Archaic', SU 'Circle of friendship'
Embellishments ~ eyelet and twine
Tools ~ sewing machine, cuttlebug, nestabilities
