Belated Birthday

Today I'm revisiting and redoing a card design that I entered into a blog challenge yesterday. I stepped this one up a little and I'm much happier with the outcome. Although it is a belated birthday card, I will be entering into the Seize the Birthday challenge.


Stamp: MFT Wild Woodland with matching dies
MFT Grassy Edges
Prismacolor pencils/Gamsol
Ink: GinaK Amalgam Black
SU Balmy Blue, SU Mossy Meadow
Neenah Solar White 110# for base
SU SubtleFolder

That's it for tonight. It's been a busy day and I still need to clean up my crafting area. I hope you have a blessed Monday and are going to do something you LOVE!

Aww Nuts

I am back today with a belated birthday I created this afternoon. I have decided to play along with the CAS(E) #335 sketchof the week that was a quick and easy card to put together.

After a conversation I had with my cousin in FL yesterday, I realized that I had forgotten her birthday.  So off to my crafting space I went today. I know she will chuckle when she opens it. There nothing like putting a smile on someones face with a handmade card.


Paper: Neenah Solar White 110#, SU Mossy Meadow, Neenah Solar White 80#

Butterfly Happy Birthday

Hi All! I hope your day is going well and you will be enjoying the upcoming weekend. I worked on a birthday card yesterday finishing it up today. It will be sent to my cousin in Texas who will be 80 at the end of the month. She has been a perpetual "21" for years and the inside sentiment fits her to a tea!

I will be linking this card over at Seize the Birthday today since their "Toppings" is Butterflies. You should "fly over to see the wonderful cards other card crafters have posted."

I hope you get to do something you LOVE this weekend! I'm off to make a couple of New Home cards and a Belated Birthday. We'll see how that goes...
Blessings, Bernie

Birthday Blessings

Just a quick stop by today. I've been in the process of making some more birthday cards and decided to link this one over at Seize the Birthdaywith the Topping of flowers.

I pulled out my Gardenia Build a Flower by Altenew to continue to work with it to become more proficient with the layering options. I did only use two-layer stamps for the flower and the leaf, but I am happy that I was able to have it turn out well.  Practice, Practice, Practice!

I'm back today to post a card that I created for 2 grandsons who live out of town. I have made cards for my granddaughters who live out of state but needed something boyish.
