Jimmy's 34th Birthday Card

This was the birthday card that I made for my brother, Jimmy, back in October.

The patterned papers are from Close to My Heart and the cardstock is Bazzill.

The embroidery floss, buttons & brads are from Close to My Heart and the ribbon is from Stampin' Up. I used the Postage Stamp Nestability to cut out the die-cut.

The moose & sentiment stamp used on the front of the card are from Whipper Snapper and the "Happy Birthday" stamp used on the inside of the card is from Inkadinkado.

Happy Birthday Shanna!

Last weekend was my best-friend, Shanna's, birthday and this was the card that I made for her.

I used BoBunny's Etc. 6 x 6 paper pack with Bazzill Cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday - Every Day Fun Twine, Prima Marketing Say It in Pearls Brown Swirl and Antique Brass Medium Brads from my stash. The Prima Marketing Say It in Pearls Brown Swirl was one big embellishment that I cut up to suit my needs.

The three die-cuts on my page were cut out with the Postage Stamp, Floral Doily Motifs and Circle Nestabilities and all the patterned papers were distressed with CTMH's Chocolate Ink and a sponge dauber.

The stamps sets used for this card are Stampin' Up's Happiest Birthday Wishes and Perfect Words Stamp Sets. These are both Hostess Rewards stamp sets.

This was the first card that I got to sign our son's name to.
