Quick Birthday Card

Just one thing to share tonight.  It totally slipped my mind to make a birthday card for our neighbor's son during the week.  At 11:00 pm Saturday night, I started this birthday card.   I tried to keep it simple because I was so tired from a day of fun with some wonderful crafting friends.  Yes, yes, I will share everything in another post . . . I didn't take any pictures of them yet.  So hold on to your horses for just a bit and it'll come!

Here's what I did . . .


I inked up Wild Sprout Edward and colored him up with my copics.  OMGosh, I found this DP in my scraps pile and thought it was perfect for this boyish card.  Do you see that sentiment?  Well, that sentiment was on the backside of the DP I used for the background.  It kept repeating "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU" over and over in alternating blue and orange lettering.  Lastly, I tied up a ribbon and added some black pearls.  Oh, I should've used a different colored background when taking this picture . . . the white of the card and the white of the background blends in together . . . duh!  Well, excuse me, but I snapped the picture Sunday morning, inserted the card into the envelope, and headed out the door to the zoo where the birthday party was.  No turning back!

Come back tomorrow 'cause I'll share all the goodies I received and the make 'n take that I made!  :)

  11. Mama, nothing you ever make is simple! I find it hard to make "boyish" cards. Maybe it's cause I have 4 girls? Hehehe! Anyways, shoot me an email to let me know when we can meet up so you can get your goodies...see you soon!
