Birthday Card for My Brother

My last brother's birthday is this week.  I'm behind on my card making so this one is likely to arrive late.  I've been thinking that I need to start working on next year's cards now so that my family can finally get a card on time!  I guess it's the thought that counts though right?

This is another fun image from Bugaboo Stamps There are a whole lot of colors going on with this card but I think it looks pretty cheerful.  I added a bit of bling to the penguin's eye and cherry on the cupcake.  I also put some glossy accents on the cupcake icing, but it doesn't show up well in the picture.

Birthday Card for My Niece

I've seen lots of very nice cards with a window punch out and the sentiment on the inside of the card but I've never tried one before.  I thought I'd try it when I made a birthday card for my Niece.  I think it's pretty nice for a first try and it's much nicer in real life than in the pic.  I stamped the chartreuse in a circle inside the card and then stamped and embossed the Happy Birthday in silver.  I sprayed the front of the card with glimmer mist and it's very sparkly.

CR84FN has a color challenge on this week and that was the inspiration for the colors

I'm entering this card in the CR84FN Challenge 48.

Birthday Card for My Brother

I have a lot of family members that have Birthdays in January and February.  Unfortunately my oldest brother's Birthday is first and inevitably I never had a card for him in time.  By the time I hit the February Birthdays people usually get their card before their birthday.

Although I *did* talk to my brother on his Birthday and wish him a happy one, I still figured a belated Birthday card would be cute.  This is what I came up with.  The inside says "I missed your birthday"

Valentine's Day Card

I saw this stamp on the Unity website and knew that I had to have it.  I'm not sure what my fascination is with monster stamps but I seem to love them all.  Plus these two are so cute!  I wanted to try a round shaped card and I think this was a pretty good first attempt.  I wish it was a bit bigger, but this is the largest die that will fit in my Cuttlebug.

Birthday Card for My Dad

Today I made a Birthday card for my Dad.  I love the Bugaboo Gus images and thought this one would make a fun card.  He's probably not going to like it as much as I do, but that's OK.  At least I didn't put 'old fart' on it or something like that.

Now that I've uploaded the card I think the front looks like of plain.  I feel t needs a sentiment on there somewhere?  I was just going to write inside but may rethink this.
