~A Few Birthday Cards~

Happy Monday to everyone! that even possible....a HAPPY Monday?? Hmm I'll have to think about it and let ya know on Tuesday. Anyways just a short posting today with a few birthday cards that I made for my sister and sister in law. It's very sad that I've been married to my husband for almost 20 yrs, and I really don't know anything about his brother's wife. With us in the military, I see them MAYBE once a year at the holidays and then nothing in between. So it was really hard to come up with something for her, not really knowing things she liked. But I think the decoupaged card I finally settled on works, and hopefully she'll like it. So far so good on my resolution of sending out cards to everyone!

Ok so this one was for my sister. I was inspired by Holly and loved her sentiment that she used, so I knew it would make a cute card for my sister. More than not, my sister has a pretty good sense of humor, so hopefully she got a chuckle out of it.The image is from Squigglefly. Papers are from the DCWV Latte Stack. Her favorite color is Purple, so tried to make that the main color of the card.

The card below is the one I finally decided on for my sister in law. It's a decoupage sheet I bought from CraftsuPrint and made by Carol Clarke
I liked the colors of it and though it was subtle and would fit any personality. Well I hope so anyways lol I printed it out a few times and pieced different areas. Some that were shown on the sheet, and other areas that I chose to do on my own. Highlighted some areas with Crystal Stickles and Tiara Glitz Stickles and put it on a black cardstock base.

Thanks for looking and hope they inspire you to make something today!

Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
