Birthday GWP

Another birthday card. This one was made with our new Happy Birthday GWP (gift with purchase). You can get this stamp for free when you purchase $30 from The Angel Company. I used Rustic Chic paper for this card.

Another Birthday Card

My friend Sarah from Sarah's Studio asked if I had any masculine birthday cards for my birthday card buffet. I know masculine cards are always harder, but here's one that I think could look kind of masculine. It's a simple design with manly colors. I might go with a little less loopy swirl to make it look a little more masculine. Luckily, I have lots of choices of swirls with TAC's new catalog! One for every occasion I think!

Birthday Card Buffet

It's been a long while since I've been able to post to my blog. A few of you have expressed concern. I'm fine -- just needed a vacation after an extremely crazy fall where at one point I was working 60 hours a week at three different jobs AND volunteering with kids' activities AND taking care of the kids by myself because hubby was traveling.

After a long rest and scaling back on some commitments, I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. My first class of the year will be this Friday and Sunday. It will be a birthday card buffet. If you have attended one of my classes before, this one will be a little different. You will still get the convenience of having all of the pieces cut and ready to be stamped and assembled. But this time you will get to choose which designs you make and how many of each. There will be eight designs to choose from -- all will be simple designs that you can assemble in 10 minutes or less. You can make any that you choose up to 5 of each design. At the end, you pay $1 for each card that you've completed. If you would like more details or want to RSVP, please email me.

I'm sharing one of the designs that you will be able to chooose here. This was one of my favorite stamp sets in our new catalog, which you will receive for free if you come to this weekend's class and make at least 10 cards. And look, a scalloped circle punch! Those are new in this catalog too! I had alot of fun last night playing with both the circle and square one that I got. We have circles and squares in two different sizes. I only ordered one of each, but I think that I'll have to order the other sizes too!
