A Birthday filled with Good Things

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share another recent make - this one was a birthday card for my Mom.





I went mono-chromatic with this one. The lovely plaid papers were a freebie with a recent order from Verve. Sadly, they are shuttering their stamp business so that was my last order from them. The heart patterned paper, white shimmer trim, sequins (from the Making Waves collection I believe) and stamp (from the Festive Birthday cardmaking kit) are all CTMH - raiding my stash!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Happy 1st birthday

Hi folks,

Just thought I would pop in and share a couple of cards I made for nieces of ours that just celebrated their first birthdays - one from each side of our respective families.

I kind of cheated and made two cards that were pretty much identical - except for the arrangement of the balloons. But my card-making mojo has been in short supply lately so.....it is what it is.








In case you are wondering, the balloons are cut with the balloon die cut from the CTMH "Sweet Baby" set - I snapped it up during a recent flash sale and have NOT regretted it.

Of course, the "1" was die cut using the CTMH Block Numbers Thin Cuts - another versatile set and I do NOT regret having in my collection. It comes in handy for those milestone birthdays and anniversaries AND graduations.

The papers on the cards are a mix of different CTMH collections - mostly from the Whimsy palette I do believe. I wanted something fun and summer-y for those two little nieces.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Relax and Enjoy Your Day - CTMH Fresh Air

Hi folks,

I was a little late out of the gate getting some of my June cards made this year, but they have finally been gifted and can now be shared.

These are the cards I made for Father's Day - the actual "Happy Father's Day" sentiment is actually inside the card (of course, I forgot to take a photo of the inside).
