Birthday Card Time…

My hubby’s bro and my gal pal have birthdays on the same day. So imagine the stress that causes a slow card creator, such as myself. Somehow, I was able to get two birthday cards done and both were given to them on their birthday. I was on time…will wonder ever cease?! LOL!

Here’s his card…
The sentiment on the inside…but you have a pretty good view from where you’re standing. I’ve heard this sentiment before and have always thought it to be funny. I didn’t think to put into a card until I was seeking inspiration for a dude’s (masculine card) and my gal pals (including the bday gal) at work suggested this sentiment. I thought it so fitting, I couldn’t pass it up.



Here’s her card…
I recently got my first set of Spellbinders and couldn’t wait to use them. The sentiment on the inside…Hoppy Birthday! This is the first card I’ve done in a long time that I didn’t premeditate; have a plan or idea in mind. I just picked a stamp and got started until it looked like it was done. Somehow the non-method to my madness turned out pretty nice…in my humble opinion.

'til I craft again or have something to say...

First, I want to say welcome back, Kotter. It's been a while. Next, I'd like to say kudos for getting 2 cards done on time. I really love the sentiment on his card...but I am glad I wasn't on the receiving end of it. Finally, cool glitter work on her card. Great job! Now keep'em coming!

WOW girl, a double feature!! Both cards have perfect sentiments inside to go with the card fronts and I'm drawn to your Nestie card! I can always use ideas for masculine too... never a lack of that!

Any big plans for the weekend? The weather is nice now, but later this afternoon rain starts to last the rest of the weekend... so I guess that's good stamping weather! :)
