Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. My mother is a new years’ baby and we celebrated her 28th birthday. LOL! Yep, when you turn a certain age, you are allowed to reverse the digits and party like in your youth!
For her birthday gift, I made Mom bunch of homemade cards… 30 Birthday cards, 10 Valentine’s Day cards, 10 Happy Easter cards and 10 Halloween cards. My mother was so excited to have enough cards for all family members plus something for each of her grandchildren for the entire year. And, thinking ahead, I included 10 Thank You cards and 10 Sympathy cards. I actually believe my father was more appreciative of the gift. After all, he’s the one Mom sends to the store to buy the cards! LOL!
As time goes on, I’ll show you samples of the cards I made — some original designs, some copied from other designers and some from Stampin’ Up! kits. And to not keep you in suspense, here masculine birthday card using SU Paper Pumpkin from May 2016 called “Many Manly Occasions”, and a Sympathy Card with my favorite SU stamp set “Lovely as a Tree”.
