Hi there. I've been busy making birthday cards. I'm totally covered for birthdays--I just have to remember to send the cards.
My first card is for this week's 10 minute craft dash. I made a super simple card--just one stamp 3 times and a sentiment. Why did I take 9 minutes? I just think things take a long time, even simple ones. I added lots of stickles and impressed with my Sunshine Impression Plate.
Here is a picture of my little tool I made to help me line things up when I stamp with wooden stamps. I have shown this before, and have gotten lots of suggested names from my friends--Joyce-A-Ma-Jig and Lego-Ma-Jig are my favorites.
Next is a card for this week's challenge at The Twinery to make a banner. I used some scraps left over from this card, and Strawberry Twine to make this birthday card.
Last up are some special order birthday cards. Who could look through my enormous stash of birthday cards, and want something custom? Why, Sarah, of course. She found this card, which I made and posted sometime last year. Decided that she would place a reserve on it, so I could give it to her in July for her birthday, and asked if I could make one just like it in blue and purple for her friend's birthday this Friday.
Of course I would do that for her. And, because I could see where this was going, I made two.
And, because we have been giving lots of gift cards lately, each card has a coordinating gift card holder.
The sentiment on the card, and that balloon sentiment are both from Hero Arts Birthday Messages, so I'll be entering these cards into this week's A Blog Named Hero Freestyle challenge.
