Thanks Pinterest!

I needed a birthday card immediately.  Unfortunately, my creative juices were NOT flowing and I wasn’t able to come up with anything.  What’s a person to do?  Go to Pinterest, of course.  I pin card samples everyday – so why not CASE one when I’m “stuck”.  Today’s card comes from this pin .  I basically copied it as is.

Thanks Pinterest!

Thanks Pinterest and

After taking the photo I noticed I truly was in a hurry as my paper cuts are uneven.  Yikes.

Hope you’ll be inspired to use Pinterest as a place for inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy, and happy stamping!

Make a Wish Birthday Boy

My son’s birthday is this month and I wanted to make him a special card.

Make a Wish

  • The candle from Cycle Celebration was stamped off first and then stamped onto a piece of Whisper White
  • The frame was made using the Banner Framelits
  • Make A Wish is the perfect sentiment to go with birthday candles

Wishing my son a very happy birthday and a wonderful year.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy

Happy Birthday, Sabrina

I moved to San Juan island last year and have been meeting new people, new friends. Today is one of my new friend’s birthday – what better way to wish her a very happy birthday than with a handmade card.

Happy Birthday, Sabrina

The Endless Birthday Wishes stamp is so versatile and provides so many wonderful sentiments
⇒ Banners imply “party” and “celebration” to me, and the new Banners framelits makes it easy to add this festive touch to your card
⇒ Simply replace the Create-a-Cupcake (retired) stamp set with the new Cupcake Party stamp set to achieve the same look

Happy crafting!

Happy Birthday, Bob

Tomorrow is my brother’s birthday – a milestone birthday – so I wanted to make him a very special card.  Creating a masculine card is difficult for me and I had trouble coming up with anything for several days.  This morning I walked into my craft room, picked up all the pieces that I had been working with and instantly came up with his card.  Sometimes basic layouts and color combinations are the best.

Happy Birthday
