Another Grandson birthday card.

This is one more grandson birthday card.  Still need one more before the end of the month and will be good on grandson cards until July!  This particular grandson loves penguins.  He saw the penguin paper in my scrap pile and smiled and reminded me his birthday was coming up.  lol  It was left over from several years ago when I did a zoo album.   I dug out the sizzix dies for his name and the balloons.  Haven't used my dies much since I got my cricut so it was kind of fun to get back to the basics.  lol  I also used nestie dies for the circles.    The glittered brads and ribbon are out of my stash from who knows when!  lol   The balloon strings are some old twine too.  Seems most of this card is from stash that is at least two years old but probably more.  Thanks for stopping by and may God always bless you.

Daughter's Birthday card

Here is my daughter's birthday card for this year.  I cannot believe my baby is 32!!!  Man I am getting old.

I think I kind of did an overkill with the embellies but it is what it is!  lol  This is one of my newer stamps from Magnolia. She is suppose to be for Valentines but I thought a basket full of love would be perfect for my girl. Everything else I used is from at least last years stash.  I am still trying to use some of my older stash. You can see that I did my favorite things by sewing and then tons of stickles!   Now I have two more birthday cards and at least one Mother's Day card I need to get done this week!  Yikes, I am so far behind I may never catch up!

Challenges I am entering:


Catered Crop- The letter B......bow, banners. birthday,

Simple card for my son

I cannot believe that my baby boy (although he is my oldest offspring) is 37 already.  Where does the time go!  Anyway, I made him this card with music as he loves music and does DJing for a hobby.  It is kind of a plain and simple card but I think he will like it in spite of his mother's attempt!  lol  I used this adorable Hanglar stamp because it is just too cute!  lol  I dug out the old sizzix die for the music notes.  The papers I have had forever and were actually scraps from another card.  The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps.
