Seize the Birthday!

Hello & Happy TGIF!!!

Your probably wondering about my blog title today. It's the name of a new challenge that our good friend, Lesley, has started to help us get a variety of birthday cards made! I know I am in major need of them since I have been working on Christmas for months. I also am on the Merry Monday design team so I found out that making 1 Christmas card a week is so wonderful when it comes to the holiday season and having cards ready to send out. There was no stressing this year! This birthday challenge will start January 10, 2013 and here is the link to the blog: Seize the Birthday!

Here is my card I made to kick things off....



I'm also trying to refresh my card rack since i've had a few card orders that depleted my supply. 
I decided to go with a masculine birthday card since I will soon need it for my brother.


Masculine Birthday Card:

Stamps: Front: Sail Boat from Class Act, Sentiment is Impression Obsession
Inside: Sentiment from Schooner (SU retired), Perfectly Penned
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, SU Whisper White, Nautical Expeditions DSP
Accessories: Oval & Scallop Oval Nestibilities, Going Gray Grosgrain, Silver Pearls, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape


Before I close this out I wanted to say "Thank You" to all who visited the Craft Show at Llamaloopfarm this year. We had the best year ever! Pam gave me a call on Wednesday to share the excitement! It seems each year gets a little better! :)

Well, today will be another busy one around here. I'm off to grocery shop and get what I need to wrap up my 10 White Chocolate Snack Mix Boxes that my cousin ordered for her neighbors and a few friends. I'm excited to get them finished and take some pictures to share! This is the very last order on my agenda this year! Yipppppeee Skipppeee!

Hope everyone has a great day & Thanks for stopping by!

What a great masculine birthday card. I'm hoping to get to the stamps and do a birthday card for this. Lately my stamps seem to be a million miles away!

I like the inside as much as the outside! PS - I see you are in Red Lion. I grew up in the Jersey Shore/Williamsport area (in PA) and my aunt and uncle lived in Red Lion for many many years. Small world.
