so I am missing card making SO much and I needed a birthday card for a coworker's birthday this coming Friday that I took a couple of hours this morning to make a card - well two cards actually. I made basically the same card for dearly beloved's brother's birthday in early March. Apparently, March is the male birthday month for me -- my brother, dearly beloved's brother, my uncle and dearly beloved. All of them in the first half of March. No female birthdays!
Anyways, here are the cards:
This one goes to my co-worker (ETA - dearly beloved called this one King Hotdog)
And this one goes to dearly beloved's brother (ETA - dearly beloved called this one King Pickle):
I used sketch 29 from the Sketch and Stash Challenge blog for the layout. The papers are recent additions to my collection - CTMH You Rock. The buttons I used are very old - from my stash (they were found this weekend while I was looking for something while I was quilting -- it was like a treasure hunt!). I also added some dew drops and stickles to the cupcakes to give them a little bling. The ribbon is from my stash of little ribbon rounds that I picked up at Fabricland a little while back.
The stamped images are from StarvingArtistamps Doodlefactory Collection (a couple of different sets actually) - I guess the quilt has me in a Doodlefactory mood! Speaking of which....back to sewing for a few hours! Maybe I'll get to make another card tonight!
