    As promised, step three, Happy Birthday

    Happy Birthday, Korine… Wanting to be sure not to go with the red, white and blue theme for this card. When you have a birthday around a holiday, I really try to make the card extra special. Now, some will say, what is the big deal. However, mom always told stories about her holiday birthday’s. She was getting gifts in Christmas wrappings, etc. So that is why I try to be aware of how that must feel. First, let us not miss that cute little slip, topped with ribbon. What would you use it for? I use mine to mark my calendar or even my book page. I know that…

    Winter Birthday for a Challenge

    It was my Mom’s Birthday Saturday. shhhh, don’t tell her because she has not gotten her card yet. This card is doubling as this weeks Global Design Project challenge card. This challenge is for two weeks, due to the holidays. Not wanting to forget to get my entry in, this worked out perfect! The colors do make a perfect Christmas card, but Mom loves the evergreens. Remember the “Window”?? That is why it needed to be the Beautiful Boughs Dies (150661). Once again, adding the Ice Stampin’ Glitter and the Shimmer Crystal Effects. The ‘snow’ in the background is from the Peaceful Boughs (150541 b-153033) Stamp set or bundle is…

It started with a cardinal. In addition to the Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe ribbon, I paired it with the Burlap ribbon. Not using both, but layering one over the other. Using the perfect evergreen colors of Shaded Spruce and Garden Green. Using all three sprig dies…
