Cute Hedgie & a Sketch

Wow! I have a fire under my butt this week! I can't remember the last time I made this many cards in a short time frame. Guess it helps that our family has many August birthdays. Anyway, I based this card on a Sweet Sketch Wednesday creation. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew it had to be my next card! I don't think I have used this many layers before!

2 more Birthday cards

Hello blogland! I have been busy crafting today and in between two major projects, got the itch to do a couple of birthday cards and just had to share.
The first card is a boy birthday card and I used an adorable Mo Manning Digital Image called Beary Hilarious! I love this bear - he is so cute! The image is colored with copics and all paper is from my scrap bin. The star stamp is from CTMH and I distressed and stamped with CTMH moonstruck.

My second card is perfect for a little girl! I used more digi images. The girl is a Digi by Lori Design and the butterfly is from Digi Stamp Boutique. Again the papers are all from my scrap bin and the ink, flower stamp & inside birthday stamp are from CTMH. The Happy Birthday stamp on the outside of the card is from Gina K Designs. The pearls are CTMH and Kaisercraft.

Quick Birthday Post

Wow! It has been a long time since I have had a chance to post anything and so even though this was a quick birthday card I made a couple days ago, I just had to get it on here. I made this card for my sweet 11 year old Adam. Sending you big Birthday hugs Adam and am thrilled you had such a great day yesterday!
I used a MelJen Digital image and colored it with copic markers. The gems are CTMH, cardstock - Gina K and patterned paper is unknown. I used heavenly blue CTMH ink to do the sky and do some blending.
