Birthdays, Birthdays & More Birthdays!

February is a very active month for family birthdays, let me tell you. There are no less than seven, count 'em, 7 birthdays coming up. There is Kirsten (DD) on the 4th, Sheena (DIL) on the 7th, John (DH) on the 12th, Anne (SIS-I-L) on the 13th, Tiffany (DD) and Shirley (Sister) on the 17th and John (SIL) on the 22nd. That's a lot of birthday cakes even for me! Two of them are living in Britain, so that leaves just five cakes to be gobbled up. I think I am up to the task! Here are two cards that have been completed, but just to be safe, I'm not saying who will receive them.

Both cards also fit with the SCS CC203. Both cards use Garden Green, Pacific Point and Baja Breeze. The "h" card uses stamps from CTMH. I used my Nestabilites for the scalloped and plain circles and added a green button to the centre. I only had white scrapper's floss, so I took a sponge and a Baja Breeze ink pad to turn it into blue scrapper's floss. Brilliant, I thought, for me anyway. Then I stamped the "Birthday" from SU's Happy Everything set with True Thyme ink because I didn't have any Garden Green ink. It will just have to do. I stitched using green thread, as well.

The second card uses "Gliding By" from Paper Pretties. I think this girl is adorable. The DP is from Two Scoops by BG. She is coloured with Copics and adorned with brads, also Two Scoops, some Prima flowers and a little Glamour Dust on the skate blades and the trail her skate leaves.

Okay, it's back to the drawing board for four more cards. The post below is also a card I made for someone's birthday, again, not saying who!

See you next time.

WOW! You do have a ton of birthdays coming up. Do you have all of your cards made or are you still slaving away? :) I love your new blog background with that owl. Did you do this all by yourself? He is so cute!

What a fun time to make all those cards and then enjoy the cakes. Love the variety you have going so far.
