Happy Birthday, Auntie

One last birthday card for the year. Today is the 84th birthday for my Aunt Sis. She is celebrating by an overnight visit with my Mom to the riverboat casino. She doesn't care for frilly feminine things so I thought this card would be a nice compromise.

Happy 80th Birthday, Mom


Mom won't be happy that I advertised her age but this month marked her 80th birthday. She celebrated in grand style with my siblings and her grands. I made this special stair step card at a class with Stephanie Barnard at Stamper's Corner. Loved it and all the work that went into it, so I knew it had to go to someone very special.

A Flip It card I made for Farley's hubby Bob who celebrated on the 18th. I used dies from The Stamps of Life. The stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

Googie Birthday

Now that Christmas is over, I can post a few birthday cards I made this month for some December birthdays. This first one is for Nancy's hubby Mark who celebrated on the 12th. I used my new Papertrey Googie dies to create this little gem. Love the look.

Merry Christmas

Another Sunburst card based upon the tutorial taught to me by my crafty little sister Chrissie earlier this month. I love the complex look we achieved with a few simple steps. And she also inspired me to use a NBUS cardinal die as the focal point. Love it. 

Merry Christmas to all and I hope you've enjoyed seeing my 25 Cards of Christmas. Stay tuned for more card making merriment over the coming weeks. There's always a holiday requiring some cards.

Charley Harper Cardinal

Another card I made at the Shoebox session with Nancy and Farley earlier this year. These are based upon drawings by Charley Harper. I love them. I have been hoarding them since February when I made them, knowing they would be perfect as Christmas cards.
