Birthday card for my neighbor


My neighbor will be 81 years young tomorrow and he loves to go boating. Thought this fabulous Baithouse stamp from Art Impressions would be perfect for his card. I stamped the image with Memento Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Embossed background layer with Cuttlebug folder then added ribbon, button and jute.

I'm dreaming of warm sunny summer days when we can go out on the lake.

Think Spring!


I'm tired of all the snow and cold weather. Hope spring gets here soon. In the meantime I'm pulling out my spring stamps and working on some cards with bright cheerful colors. The tulip stamp is made by Denami. I bought it a long time ago and it hasn't seen ink in ages. Love how this birthday card turned out.

I am entering the Think Pink challenge at Do you stack up.

Happy Birthday Pardner



Love the January sketch on the RSC website. When I saw the sketch I immediately pictured this card with the little cowboy on it for a birthday card. Stamped the image from the TAC Wild West set with Memento black ink and colored with copics. Printed Happy Birthday Pardner onto Marigold Morning cardstock and cut out with Star punch. Embossed Caramel background layer with Cuttlebug Paisley folder.
