December Birthdays

My list of birthdays in December is quite extensive, so I took a break from Christmas cards and other preparations to make a couple of those birthday people a handmade card.


This creation was for one of my lovely grandsons, whose birthday is December 18th. Because I know that he treasures these cards, I try very hard to put an effort into making something that will appeal. He still likes dragons so I had to ink up the dragon from Magical Day (retired) and get the dragon to help "put out this tiny fire". I'm really hoping that Mr 9 'gets' this little joke. By the way, he's not 'lighting' the fire, so that is why his breath has been coloured with Chalk marker.


Birthday Banners is a recent addition to my stash, but I've had the banner dies since they came out with a Christmas stamp a few years back. Good to have another stamp set to use them with, and you choose which words you stamp onto the banners. Always good to have options. Wink of Stella has been added to half the flame and parts of the dragon, but they're not showing up in the photo.


My friend Tina Gillespie, a design team member of Just Add Ink, recently used Bubble Over to show a cool inlaid dies technique. I've provided a link back to Tina's blog, Scissors Paper Card for you to check out her card. I was saying to Tina that I don't think this stamp set has had enough love, because it's a fun-type stamp for teens to adult, and can be fizzy pop to designer beer. I put together a bright card for a work colleague, hence the funny sentiment for the inside. Again, a favourite stamp set, now retired but staying firmly on my shelf - Five For All.

It's a good time to check out the Online Store for discouted items in the Year-End Closeout.

  1. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a
    co-worker who was conducting a little research on this.

    And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I discovered it for him...
    lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about
    this matter here on your website.

  2. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.

    It will always be interesting to read content from other
    authors and use a little something from other web
    sites.

  3. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it
    doesn't disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, I
    know it was my choice to read through, however I genuinely thought
    you'd have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is
    a bunch of crying about something you could possibly
    fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
